About Seiko

I enjoy teaching Japanese. I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. I have a college degree in Japan with a secondary teaching credential as well as a BS degree in the US. My past work experience at global companies in Japan and the US for 15+ years would be a plus for tutoring and mentoring your goals.

Everyone has a different style and level in learning languages. I teach beginners to advanced levels. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. For school students, I am familiar with textbooks being used in the bay area. I teach my students based on their school classes and assignment preparations. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learning the language but also strengthening your communication skills in understanding of its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience of reviewing and proofreading resume and essays as well as AP/JLPT test preparations.

Patient teacher

It is comfortable to talk to Seiko in Japanese as I had difficulty to talk Japanese to Japanese people. Right now, speaking in Japanese is more important than speaking perfect Japanese.
