I was born and raised in Hiroshima prefecture, Japan. I have a long history of teaching English to Japanese students at the Junior and High School levels, and use my skills now to teach English speakers about Japanese language.

Mrs Yae isn't only an extremely careful, thoughtful and well prepared instructor, she is also able to offer an insight into the culture which helps a lot when learning a language that isn't commonly used in this part of the world. As an ESL instructor myself, I appreciate Mrs Yae's techniques when it comes to explaining some of the most complicated aspects of the language, I highly recommend her services.

"I have known and worked with Cindy for well over a year to sharpen/maintain speaking skills and to improve my writing. Prior to Covid, we met weekly in a bookstore cafe and during 2020 we have continued via Zoom. As I have been a student of Italian for quite some time, we simply jumped in at an advanced level. Her everyday awareness of spoken Italian is a perfect way to achieve my goals. We have kept the meetings informal and conversational, with homework that varies from text book segments to writing letters to just having conversations about everyday things. I know Cindy also provides a more structured set of lessons and has worked with students of all ages. The best "testimonial" I can give is that I plan to continue to work with Cindy. Any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail."
