About Harumi


Bio

I was born in Osaka, Japan and lived there until I was 26 years old. I taught conversational English to Japanese children aged between 2 and 13 for six years while I lived in Japan. My American husband and I owned an English conversation school in Japan. After moving to the United States, I homeschooled my children. I have been teaching conversational Japanese for over 8 years now. My teaching methods are not limited to using text books alone. I use flash cards, games and even songs...

I have been teaching conversational Japanese for over 8 years now. My teaching methods are not limited to using text books alone. I use flash cards, games and even songs when students are small children. I can also teach Japanese culture, like origami, old Japanese fables, cooking Japanese cuisine, how to wear Kimonos and so on.

Knowledgeable Tutor

Harumi is very good at tailoring lessons to skill levels, and is very easy to work with. My langauage skills are markedly better after just a few lessons. She is also very accommodating in terms of scheduling as well.

I Leard A Lot!

What I liked about Harumi's tutoring is that she understood the level of Japanese I was at. She also helped me when I needed it, but at the same time, she didn't give me all the answers, which was really great. I memorized much more from this session then studying by myself. Thank you!

First session

My daughter was so nervous but at the end of the session she was so excited and said the lesson was really fun.

Great Tutor for Kids!

About a year ago my 8 year old daughter asked about learning Japanese because of her interest in kawaii and anime. We have always wanted her to learn a second language, so we decided to find a tutor. We were lucky to find Harumi. The lessons never get boring for my daughter because Harumi has so many fun learning games to play with her. It's amazing to see how much Japanese she is learning while having fun the whole time. Thanks, Harumi!

Kind and patient tutor!

How to make a statement and how to ask a question. How to introduce yourself and how to introduce someone else. How to say yes and no. She taught a few vocabulary words. A lot was learned in the lesson. I would definitely recommend this tutor.

Encouraging and patient

Harumi is an excellent tutor, punctual, a great communicator, and uses creative materials. Harumi is kid friend and is always well prepared.

Good teacher.. She's understanding.. and will adapt to the student

She'll sit there patiently while I try to think of how to say stuff in Japanese and I never feel like I'm taking too long, I've had like a year of lessons and am learning at a good pace.

Fun and Flow in Japanese

Harumi Sensei is a very good teacher, very adaptable to the student needs. Her classes are fun and flow really well.

Jorge, 101 lessons with Harumi

Pleasant, patient, and helpful.

I've only had the first lesson, but it seems like we are a good match. I'm coming back to studying Japanese after a long hiatus, and want to focus on casual conversation and building confidence. Harumi-sensei seems to understand and is willing to be flexible with the lesson structure in order to better suit my goals. I'm looking forward to working with her.
