Bio

Teaching Japanese at a reputable language school in Arlington was my first job when I moved to this country. I developed a curriculum for intensive Japanese language training and taught a junior officer of Department of Defense on a one-to-one basis, focusing on a variety of bilateral issues as well as discussions on the social and cultural aspects of Japan. I am currently teaching full time, so my availability is limited to evenings.

Teaching Japanese at a reputable language school in Arlington was my first job when I moved to this country. I developed a curriculum for intensive Japanese language training and taught a junior officer of Department of Defense on a one-to-one basis, focusing on a variety of bilateral issues as well as discussions on the social and cultural aspects of Japan. I am currently teaching full time, so my availability is limited to evenings.

Since then, I worked for one of the largest Japanese trading companies as a research analyst on policies and business and recently retired to pursue my passion to teach Japanese language and culture. I completed two separate Japanese language instructor course works as part of undergraduate program and at a private language school in Tokyo.

At my previous job, I tutored my colleague who wanted to improve his Japanese capabilities, especially business terminologies, in order to advance his career within the company. I also taught Japanese as an assistant at University of Essex in UK, where I was an exchange student. These were both voluntary work but I love helping people who wish to learn or advance his/her Japanese and want to know more about Japan!

I would love to share what I can offer to those who are interested in Japanese and Japan. With my professional business experiences, I'm sure I can teach pretty much anything in Japanese as well as basics of Japanese language. Please let me know what your goal is. We will come up with the best plan for you and start the journey together!

Fantastic tutor and excellent at assessing student goals and needs

In our first lesson Izumi was very insightful in assessing my strengths and weaknesses as a student, namely that I grasp grammar concepts quickly and can read fairly well for a beginner yet need to focus on learning vocabulary. She was also very helpful in recommending additional materials that would be useful for studying, as well as creating a general roadmap of how I should start studying. She was also very accommodating in terms of meeting location and time for us to meet. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn the Japanese language - she really knows what she's doing.

Excellent lesson.

Izumi is an excellent teacher. Her attitude and knowledge put me at ease and confirmed to me that I had found the right teacher. I look forward to my next lesson with her.

Knowledgeable, patient and innovative tutor

Izumi was incredibly patient and innovative in her approach to our son's first Japanese lesson. She conducted the lesson in a very professional and comprehensive way, and at the same time was guided by his level of knowledge and interests. I would highly recommend Izumi to anyone interested in learning more about Japanese language at any level and for any reason. She is a wonderful tutor!
