Experience

Hi everyone! My name is Issy, I was born and raised in Japan.
I have been living in London, the UK since 2016(4 years.)I am educated to a Master's degree in the UK, and I have many work experiences related to my language skills, including teaching Japanese, interpretation, translation.
Other than tutoring, I work as a free-lance theatre designer. sometimes as a Japanese-English interpreter for several customers and events. I have started teaching Japanese as a hobby about 3 years ago, and since last year, I have started teaching Japanese to everyone in London. I always have lots of fun to teach my language, it makes my understanding of Japanese even deeper.

Issy is a very nice teacher. Learning Japanese was one of my dreams and now I am saying that the dream comes true!

The most important thing in studying languages is keeping motivation high. Issy’s creative approach to that makes studying sooo enjoyable!

G
Glenn

I met Issy through language/culture exchange events. Her lessons are always well prepared with a mixture of exercises and she even sets homework. Her explanations are always very clear and easy to understand. Learning a language can be tough and scary but Issy's friendly attitude towards teaching put me at ease right away. She's clearly very passionate about sharing the Japanese language with the rest of the world. I would highly recommend her.

Sara

Issy provides a very professional and friendly approach. She listens and puts things in a perspective which makes it easy to understand. I used to see her face to face, but now with the online lessons it's still on a high quality, so very happy.
Also, I love how she tailors the lessons to my needs and wishes. Would def recommend her!
