I am a fully qualified Japanese trainer currently teaching corporate and private groups in Japan. I have worked in the USA, Australia and the UK due to my love of travel and international relations.
My teaching experience with Japanese has ranged from young learners through to MDs and company directors. Whoever I teach, the methodology remains the same...dynamic,communicative, student centered and fun!
I will be happy to guide you in your Japanese studies whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned learner.
Aside from languages I enjoy sports and pop music.

I am currently working as a Japanese teacher in Japan.
I have experience teaching both Japanese and English at levels from beginner to advanced. I follow a modern student centered communicative approach which has been developed through years of public and private teaching experience. The emphasis in my lessons will always be on guided production allowing you to start speaking Japanese straight away.
Wonderful first lesson! Rinko-san understood exactly what I am trying to learn (conversational Japanese) and got right to it teaching me things that really help. Thanks!
This was my third lesson with Rinko-sensei, she is really friendly and good at teaching! ありがとうございました :)
First lesson today with Rinko-sensei and we had some initial connection difficulties but she very kindly gave me the full time. Rinko is patient and was good at pushing me to do better, I feel very positive about continuing with her.
A great lesson from a great teacher - as always!
