About Yuriko I.

Hi, my name is Yuriko

I was born and raised in Japan. I can teach from beginner to intermediate in Japanese. I have many hours of experience teaching Japanese to any ages, kids to adults, private, group or home-schooling -- whoever wants to learn Japanese (writing, reading, conversation, romaji, hiragana, katakana kanji and JLPT (all level)).

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

Yuriko-sensei is very flexible with my schedule and very patient with me as I begin to put together what I have learned in college and from books with how "people really talk."

In class and via Skype, I have taught hundreds of classes to small children to retired businessman. Classes are tailored to each student's needs. We can focus on conversational, reading and writing, or listening. Casual or formal. Prep yourself for the dream trip to Japan, or learn enough to chat with your Japanese anime friends, or take care of your Japanese customers. Very flexible style, but my main focus is to have fun learning.
