About Kumiko

I grew up in Japan, US and Poland within a diverse, international family. I know Japanese and Polish culture as well as American culture very well.
I have worked as an interpreter for several years, along with teaching Japanese and English to whoever wanted my help. To be able to truly understand and speak a language, you have to understand the culture and people's way of thinking of that country. Japanese people and native English speakers have very different culture and it is essential to understand the differences in way of thinking and manners of people.

I aim to teach students the mannerism and culture of Japan to make it easier to learn the language.

My father is Japanese and I grew up in Japan when I was little and also went to University in Japan. I have extensively studied the language when I was growing up in US so I wouldn't fall behind on Japanese language. It is very common in people who speak a few languages that one language exceeds another, and I wanted to keep both languages at the same highest level.

I am very friendly and patient, genuinely love helping people who wants to learn Japanese. It is about communicating your thoughts and feelings, please let me know your goal and I will help you accomplish it!
