I am very happy that you are interested in learning Japanese.

Many students moved to Japan after taking my lessons, traveling to Japan or passed JLPT N1 to N5. You can set up your goal and learn a real Japanese that you can speak, read and write in your daily life.

I make a teaching plan, text and worksheet only for you individually with your goal and preferences. I have a short lesson to teach Japanese only for your traveling, too.

I also teach Japanese cooking, Origami, songs, and Japanese calligraphy as a part of lesson, so you can touch the Japanese culture and enjoy them!

My lessons with Yukari are so helpful I’ve only had three so far and have learned so much. She makes everything super easy to understand and the lessons are so much fun; making them comforting and encouraging. She does a great job at including various cultural tips and background stories on the language. It is so interesting and useful if you ever want to go to Japan! I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone looking to improve their skills in this language, at ALL LEVELS!

Yukari is prompt, responsive, sweet, and easy to get along with! I love that she's a native Japanese speaker and can answer all of my questions about cultural norms and etiquette. Can't wait for more lessons with her.
