Hi, there! My name is Satoru and I moved San Fransisco Bay Area since 2013 from Tokyo, Japan. In Tokyo, I was a marketing specialist over 15 years at global IT companies. After moving here, I have belonged to Japanese - English Toastmasters club and the club includes various people, like business people, students, teachers, artists and so on. Because of my marketing professional experience, I realize that I'm good at teaching business Japanese with it's culture and common knowledge. In addition, I know how to make effective communicate on business without missing key points. I'm an easy going and optimistic person and my teaching style is focusing simple way and encouraging. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Satoru really challenges me, particularly in the areas I am weakest in. My brain is getting a real workout, and it's a great experience. He structures his lessons around my goals and really keeps me focused on them. His lessons are a lot of fun.
