About Mayumi

I was born in Japan and came to the US about 8 years ago. I obtained Master's Degree of Social Work and Foreign and Second Language Education at Florida State University. Meanwhile, I worked as a Japanese instructor at Florida State University for 6 years. Teaching Japanese is incredibly rewarding for me and I like to help my students improve their Japanese language skills. I am passionate about teaching Japanese and spreading Japanese culture to the world!

As a Japanese instructor at Florida State University, I taught classes for all the beginners to advanced courses, Kanji dril classes, Listening classes, Rapid reading class, and a Business Japanese class. Duringmy teaching years, I also helped students improve on a range of things from their conversation skills, to writing resumes, cover letters and essays, to applying for college or jobs in Japan. So please don't hesitate to make any kind of request.

As for private Japanese lessons, I tutored many students in the long term over the past years. I am a patient and approachable language teacher who provides a comfortable learning environment. I can also work with any of your choices of textbooks, including Genki, Tobira, Nakama, etc. I provide both in-person and online tutoring, so if you are interested in learning Japanese, I will gladly assist you!

I am currently working at Apple as a bilingual data analyst, but I am available after work and on weekends.
Let's learn Japanese! If you are interested in Japanese culture, language, games, anime, movies, or planning to go on a trip to Japan, I'm the one you want!

Outstanding tutor

Mayumi is amazing. I learned more with her today than I did in the entire past month of studying. I came with pages of questions I had from listening to bootcamp videos, and she answered them in ways to clear up any possible confusion I had. After tutoring with Mayumi, I now have confidence that I can learn Japanese.
