If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

Along with my native Japanese skills and over ten years of professional experience in business, I can assure you that I will provide Japanese lessons that will meet your educational or professional needs.

My experience as a consultant in an international firm, working with Japanese and non-Japanese companies, has taught me that every client and their needs are different, therefore each solution is different. My approach in teaching Japanese is the same.

The foundation of my teaching method is supported by ten pillars. I customize my method based on the student's age, interests, how they learn, and most importantly, the student's goals. My job is to improve your Japanese while making sure your goals are met.

While I am a native Japanese speaker, I am also a native-level English speaker. This enables me to explain certain Japanese nuances explicitly when necessary. Throughout my professional career, I have worked in many industries and have a thorough understanding of Japanese business culture and etiquette.

I teach all ages starting from 5 years old. I have worked with many children and will find ways to keep them interested with games, songs, hands-on-activities, and puzzles. I have also designed a curriculum for a local Japanese preschool and kindergarten. For adults, it is essential for me to understand your goal, priorities and possibly your deadline(!!) to make the most out of your busy schedule.

I can also teach math to Elementary and Middle school students in both Japanese and English upon request.

I am looking forward to working with you to make your goals my goal!

Excellent Japanese Tutor — Izumi is an excellent tutor. She takes care to develop a system based on your level of Japanese and personal goals, and always pays careful attention to your inputs. When I mentioned that I'd like to incorporate more practical conversational situations, she listened and immediately implemented daily life dialogue practice.
