I am a native Japanese speaker from Tokyo. I have served as an instructor at the Greater Louisville Regional Japanese Saturday School, which provides courses entirely in Japanese. I have helped students prepare for JLPT (Japanese-Language Proficiency Test) and the Japan Kanji Aptitude Test (Kanji Kentei). Whether you want to improve your reading or writing skills, or you are simply looking for a conversation partner, let me know! If you are not sure if Japanese lessons are for you, I recommend signing up for shorter lessons first and then switch to longer lessons if you enjoy it:-) I would love to hear from you. Thank you!

My first class with Hiromi was fantastic. She has a great personality that adds to the learning environment. Good explanations and she was very patient with me.

Hiromi is extremely helpful. It is so nice to have visual contact with her. She answers all of my questions that I have from studying on my own. When I am stuck on a problem, she clears it right up for me. She is a natural. I’m glad to have found her as my Japanese Teacher 👩‍🏫
