About Fumiko

I am a native Japanese tutor completely bi-lingual and bi-cultural and have been trained in teaching Japanese to non-Japanese students. I have been teaching one-on-one and online to students all over the US for the past 12 years.

I have students aging from 5 years old to professionals who want to live and work in Japan. Whether it be needing help with homework, preparing for school exams & JLPT, improving grades, or brushing up on conversation for an upcoming visit, I will cater to all levels, objectives and ages and prepare each lesson accordingly.

My method is to build, repeat, and apply with each lesson. I am friendly, patient and encouraging. Students enjoy the pace & attention where their questions are answered clearly and immediately. We can use the many textbooks and drill books I have to enhance comprehension.

I have a high retention and success rate. Join me in learning Japanese. You will be amazed at how much you will learn and improve!

Wonderful tutor! Adaptive, detailed, and encouraging! — A friend and I recently studied Japanese with Fumiko. We are beginner students and were looking to continue our studies after a group class we had attended became unavailable. Fumiko was quickly able to get us back up to speed, revisiting materials we needed to review and even elaborating on some topics to improve our knowledge. She sent summaries of all of our lessons, calling out specific point ...
