A little about me.
I am a Japanese native. I have been living in the SF Bay Area for 30 years and am fluent in English. I have taught at UC Davis as a teaching assistant, and at a local high school as a guest teacher. Currently, I work with both students and professionals as a private tutor.

Look forward to meeting you!

Tutoring

Very helpful teacher and full of knowledge and with one lesson has helped me significantly. I look forward to learning more from her.

Dustin, 4 lessons with Yumiko

Passionate and humble teacher

Yumisan is way more than an accomplished teacher. She’s first and foremost a remarkable human being. Joyful. Passionate. Giving. Those hundreds of five star reviews are testament to a great soul. I’d rank my conversations about the future of my artistic pursuits one of the best I’ve had.

Great First Lesson

My first lesson was really good fun. We looked at some sample questions to gauge my level and help me understand what I should focus on before my exam. Yumiko was very friendly and patient!

Arigatou gozaimasu, Yumiko-san!

Yumiko is a great tutor. Enthusiastic, understanding, patient, and of course, knowledgeable! I always enjoy our weekly sessions together. I am just getting started with Japanese, but I am excited to learn and know that with Yumiko's help and some self-study, I'll get there! Thanks, Yumiko!

Stacey! I enjoy helping you learning Japanese language. You bring such a positive energy and enthusiasm every time we meet. I really love that. Let's keep going. You will do great!

Came Prepared and Great Explanations!

I asked to learn more business Japanese and Yumiko came to my first lesson with resources just for that. She was able to clearly explain all my questions. I plan on setting up weekly meetings with her!

Nice meeting you, Anna san! Look forward to help you learn more business Japanese and customs. ;-) Great to know that you are fluent in Japanese!

Experienced, well prepared, and smart

I was very happy with the first session and the direction set up for the future. Yumiko knows what she's doing, and I very much look forward to future sessions.

Yumiko is a really great teacher! She was very patient and clear and made the lesson a fun experience I got all the homework to my laptop which makes it easy to access She also answers questions out of the lesson hours for free. Highly recommended
