I am a native Japanese tutor completely bi-lingual and bi-cultural and have been trained in teaching Japanese to non-Japanese students. I have been teaching in both Seattle and the Eastside for the last 12 years.

I have students aging from 5 years old to professionals who want to live and work in Japan. Whether it be needing help with homework, preparing for school exams & JLPT, improving grades, or brushing up on conversation for an upcoming visit, I will cater to all levels, objectives and ages and prepare each lesson accordingly.

My method is to build, repeat, and apply with each lesson. I am friendly, patient and encouraging. Students enjoy the one on one attention where their questions are answered clearly and immediately. We can use the many textbooks and drill books I have to enhance comprehension.

I have a high retention and success rate. Join me in learning Japanese. You will be amazed at how much you will learn and improve!

Great tutor — Fumiko is a wonderful teacher who truly cares about her students’ learning. I can trust her to correct me when I make the smallest mistakes; when going through the workbook, I may say the wrong particle very quickly, but she notices and fixes it. I am glad that I have a teacher who can give me the guidance needed to work through difficult concepts while understanding and remembering it as well. ...
