Hi, I'm Yuko Shima. I've been teaching in Silicon Valley to Japanese businessmen and business women, their family members for 7 years.

I come from Japan, so I can speak fluent Japanese. You can ask me any questions in Japanese, and I can answer your questions in the way you can most efficiently understand. I have lived in America for 23 years. So if you have questions about American life, customs and cultures, you can ask me as well.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish with emphasis on Intercultural Communication from Kansai Gaidai University of Foreign Studies.
I was chosen an exchange student to study at Arizona State University in my sophomore year.

In high school, I was the first place winner at a speech and debate contest sponsored by Soroptimist Youth Forum. I went to the national competition.

Before I came to America, I taught English at a prep school in Osaka for one year. I taught in the classroom of about 30 students from the 5th, 6th, and 7th graders.

I also have taught privately to a middle school and a high school student, a business man and a college professor of economics while I was back in Japan for one year in 2020.

So far, I have taught in Silicon Valley to more than 600 students. About 80% of my students are housewives. 20% are business professionals.

So, teaching English is what I have done all my life using all my ability and passion to help others.

I have published a book on Amazon in 2019. It's an audio embedded kindle book.

My strength is that I can customize lessons based on your needs. I am a compassionate tutor and can find the best way for you to understand what you may need to know. I can explain in the language that you can understand. I create customized teaching materials as a summery of your lesson after each lesson so you can review your lesson thoroughly.

I am a dedicated English tutor. I wish to help you and I hope I am the one.

I offer a free first lesson. So you can see if we are a good match.
