About Aili あいり L.


My name is YURI:).
I was born in Tokyo and BA Psychology major at University in Tokyo.
After working as a secretary in Nihonbashi Tokyo, moved to Tampa, Florida to learn English. I still keep in touch with my roommates who taught me in English. Now it's my turn to teach Japanese!!

Anyway, after living in Tampa, I moved to Houston Texas to studied TOEFL to enter Photography school in Santa Barbara, CA. My dreams come true !!
I went back to Japan, and worked as a chief photographer.

Two years of my experience, I moved to Hawaii. I shot more than ( I don't know how many couples and families I shot...) couple hundreds people for 17 years.

I am here in St. Louis to teach Japanese now!!

Very casual style and whatever you feel like to talk, I am so happy to share my time!!

She is super patient and very articulate such that I have gain much love for the Japanese culture and of course the language. Her lessons are not only very interesting but she also brings much person experience and passion to her work. Thank you so much for being a great teacher. My son also appreciates all you’ve done to help him become a more fluent Japanese speaker.
