When it comes to learning a language, I believe correct grammatical understanding and the amount of output are equally important. I therefore focus on both grammar and speaking/writing practice during my lesson for the best results and you'll feel that your Japanese is improving! I adopt the best teaching method and materials according to each student's needs and make sure that their learning experience is fun and effective. Language learning is like a journey, and continuous practice is essential.
I encourage my students to review what we worked on in the lesson as much as they can during the week. By building up a solid vocabulary and grammar base, you’ll become able to carry on basic conversations in Japanese soon enough!
Are you looking to start learning the language but don't know where to start?
Are you a long time Japanese leaner looking to jump up to the next level?
Then I'm here to assist you! Anyone at any level is welcomed. I would love to share my passion for the language and culture with my students. Looking forward to hearing from you!
I am a native Japanese speaker and experienced Japanese tutor. I'm currently pursuing my postgraduate degree in Education and International Development at UCL while getting teacher training.
I started my tutoring career as a TA for international students back in 2011. Since then I have taught more than 30 students, both in classroom settings and one-on-one. It has always been my pleasure to see them thriving in learning the language.
My previous Japanese tutoring experiences are as follows:
-Tandem language assistant at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto
-Registered tutor at Kyoto International Cultural Association
-Private tutoring in Paris, Melbourne, and New York
I can also meet up in a cafe/public place.

Perfect! As a complete beginner in Japanese, I have now had half a dozen lessons with Tomoko ... she is exactly what I wanted in a tutor - friendly, fun and responsive to my needs. She is very highly recommended!
Perfect! Well prepared for the age and level. Nice materials our daughter was engaged in and very friendly approach. Thank you Tomoko-san!
My 7 year-old daughter goes to a bilingual school and needs a lot of help with her Japanese homework. Tomoko is a brilliant tutor and knows how to work with children. My daughter enjoys her lesson and is getting good grades. We are very happy with Tomoko's work!
Tomoko is an amazing teacher, and I feel very lucky to have met her! I have been learning Japanese from her for almost two years and I cannot recommend her enough. She is a patient and encouraging tutor with an excellent ability to explain complicated grammatical questions. Her lesson is always well structured with a mixture of practice exercises. Her easygoing and fun personality makes her lesson very relaxed and enjoyable. As much as I miss our in-person lessons in NYC, I will continue to take her lesson online, as I doubt I'd be able to find a tutor as great as her. Thanks always, Tomoko-sensei!
