About Kumiko


Bio

Hello,

I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. I am certified as a Japanese language teacher in Tokyo, where I started teaching. I have taught both business people and students for more than ten years in six different countries, Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Finland, and the U.S.

Those experiences have given me a deep understanding of the uniqueness of each culture as well as the differences of languages that often impede learning Japanese.

Hello,

I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. I am certified as a Japanese language teacher in Tokyo, where I started teaching. I have taught both business people and students for more than ten years in six different countries, Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Finland, and the U.S.

Those experiences have given me a deep understanding of the uniqueness of each culture as well as the differences of languages that often impede learning Japanese.

I teach from kids to adults, from college students to international students to business people. A customized curriculum can be built, depending upon your goal. As a mother of two school-aged daughters, I know school curriculums and can help you studying for the AP Japanese course too.

I am very friendly, patient and a good listener.

I have a tutoring office in Los Altos but can travel to another location if that is more convenient for you. I will try to be flexible with scheduling. While I have a 24 hours cancellation policy, I am happy to offer a make up class.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Kumiko

Wonderful Japanese Tutor for Business People

Kumiko has been wonderful in quickly preparing us for a trip to Japan. No, we aren't conversant, but after 4 lessons we have enough Japanese to get around. She is clear, concise, and very, very patient. I highly recommend her!
