I have worked in the San Francisco Unified School District as a Japanese teacher in Elementary School and in High School. I have also worked for the corporates such as Pixar Animation Studios and Disney World. I am a native speaker who speak no dialects.
I can also teach SAT Japanese and business Japanese. Japanese language is often thought to be challenging to learn but actually fun and exciting. You would be amazed how fast you can speak, read and write to communicate. Have fun and enjoy learning Japanese!

Mamiko Sensei is a wonderful tutor who was able to quickly identify my strength and weakness in Japanese and tailor each lesson to meet my needs. I appreciated her goal setting which has increased my confidence in my command of Japanese. Mamiko sensei was great in explaining Japanese from the complex grammatical rules to the colloquial phrases. I appreciated how she begins the lesson with a discussion of current events and general conversation in Japanese -- something you won't find in a structured course at the community college. Overall, I feel much more prepared and really appreciate her patience and diligence in improving my Japanese. I highly recommend her as a Japanese tutor to any student at all levels in the Bay Area.
I have five children, and have employed several tutors throughout the years. Mamiko is tutoring my daughter in a college Japanese I class. I am extremely pleased with how Mamiko approaches each lesson, and how prepared she is. It is like a mini class. Each time, she is ready to teach, not just go over whatever was covered in class. She shows up with flash cards ready to go, and a lesson plan in place. It is one thing to know your subject; knowing how to teach is another skill altogether. Clearly, Mamiko understands teaching! It's not a free ride for my daughter, either. Mamiko makes her work, but she is super sweet, so it is a pleasant experience. My daughter is very happy working with Mamiko, feels more confident, and is comfortable working with her.
Mamiko has also given my daughter tips on studying, helped her identify which parts of each chapter are most important and where she should spend her time, and has even given her tips on dealing with college professors, and success at this level. My daughter is a first semester college student, and timid in new situations, so this has been especially helpful.
I'd also like to mention that Mamiko is very easy to reach, and responds immediately to emails, texts, or phone calls. She is very flexible, and willing to go out of her way to accommodate the student. I really cannot say enough good things. She is just a delightful lady, and a very dedicated teacher.
Mamiko is terrific, she is personable, accommodating, and knows how to communicate effectively. She has improved my daughter's understanding of the Japanese language as well as her test scores. My daughter is taking Japanese II and currently has an A in the class. She actually looks forward to their tutoring time together. I even hear occasional laughter coming from the room. Mamiko has a way to keep it light yet effective. I highly recommend her!
Mamiko U. is an excellent Japanese tutor. I would like to commend you for a job well done. My son is more confident in writing, speaking and reading the Japanese language. Thank you for uplifting his spirit and helping him in every steps of way until he reached his success in learning a new culture. I would highly recommend your services and expertise to many others.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I received a degree in Japanese Education from Ohio State University.
