About Yoko

I was born and raised in Japan and lived there until I was 27 years old. Currently, I work for a Japanese language school and a Japanese abacus math school where I teach preschool to elementary students. In addition, I work at a public school district and support physically or mentally challenged students. I find working with them to be rewarding and I work hard to help them reach their full potential. I truly enjoy working with students from diverse backgrounds.

I also have experience working as a banker at an international bank in Japan and have developed well-seasoned customer service skills. I look forward to meeting students of all age groups and a variety of cultural backgrounds.

During my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, and exercising. I am a creative, patient, and caring individual who finds pleasure in helping people and animals. I hope to provide students with the skills to develop their inherent strengths. By teaching Japanese language and culture, I hope I can contribute to their increased understanding of global issues.

Thank you very much for posting the great review about my lesson. It has truly been a pleasure getting to know your children. They love to learn and have an amazing attention span. Because of their eagerness to learn, I truly enjoyed tutoring your children and already miss them a lot. I am sure they will have a wonderful life experience in Japan. Have a great summer, and I wish you good luck with settling into your new life in Japan.

I appreciate the positive review very much! Educating your eager learners is a joyful experience. Their kind nature motivates me to become a better educator. I cannot wait to learn more about the culture of Hawaii and Brazil from them, and teach them all about the Japanese language. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach them.

Excellent Tutor

I would highly recommend Yoko as a tutor - she is extremely kind, affable and enthusiastic and has a very approachable manner with children. She is also reliable, prompt and hardworking. She is clearly very intelligent, her communication skills are excellent, and she was flexible about the manner in which we ran lessons as well as the times of our meetings. We were only able to meet with Yoko a
