My Background:
I was born and raised in Northern Japan, where I attended traditional Japanese schools, until I came to the United States for college and graduate school. In addition to two graduate degrees, I have a graduate certificate in Education from San Diego State University. I was raised in a bilingual environment, where my siblings and I were immersed in Japanese at school, and our English-teacher mother tutored us in English at home. Having come from such a background myself, Japanese bilingual education is one of my specialties.

Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding any questions you may have.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Great lesson!

Naomi-san was very patient and she helped me improving my Japanese conversation skills. Today's lesson was very practical and useful! I learned a lot about practical Japanese! Very looking forward to next lesson.

Great tutor!

Naomi is a great tutor--she's helpful, patient, and encouraging. I did three sessions with her to prepare for a trip to Japan and she came prepared every time with what she thought we needed to know, and she easily tailored her lessons to our requests. Arigato gozaimasu!
