Japanese For All Levels - Taught by Bilingual Award Winning Actress in London

Methodology

I offer Japanese classes to students of all levels, from beginner to degree level learners. I have coached students of Japanese through degree level exams and every level of the JLPT qualifications. As a non-native speaker, having been through the process of learning Japanese as an adult, I deeply understand the challenges that students face. As such, I can offer more support in learning methods, tips and tricks than a native speaker might.

Japanese can be a challenge to master, and most of the textbooks on the market skip over the intricacies of the language. Whilst I am very familiar with Genki and Minna no Nihongo, I have spent the past few years compiling my own lesson materials and can therefore tailor my lessons to my students' goals and current abilities, supplementing or replacing the traditional textbooks.

Experience

BA Japanese (Double First Class) University of Cambridge, 2014
MA Musical Theatre (Distinction) Royal Academy of Music, 2016

JLPT Level 1
LRAM Teaching Qualification
Best Actress Nominee, Stage Debut Awards 2017

I studied Japanese at the University of Cambridge, and love every part of learning and teaching the language. I have 7 years' experience working as a private Japanese tutor in the UK and Japan. My complementary work as a professional actor on stage and screen (Royal Lyceum Theatre, CBBC) allows me to offer a unique, dynamic approach to tutoring. When desired, I can combine elements of self-confidence / public speaking training into my language and drama classes. I have worked with business professionals, actors, sportspeople, students and entrepreneurs to help them develop their language skills alongside their confidence.

For the third year of my BA study, I lived in Kyoto and studied Japanese at Doshisha University. I also passed the JLPT Level 1 examination. After graduating from Cambridge I returned to Japan for 6 months, volunteering on rural farms across the country and working as a private tutor and translator. I have worked as an EFL tutor since graduating from University and have worked with business professionals, actors, sportspeople, students and entrepreneurs to help them develop their language skills alongside their confidence.

I offer face-to-face and online teaching, and normally am happy to travel to the student.
