About me

Konnichiwa, genki?

I was born and raised in Japan. I now live in the Netherlands.

I was the company owner of a language school in Shinjuku, Tokyo for 8 years. We were specialized in teaching Japanese from beginner to business levels for European and Asian expats living in the Tokyo area. I also taught Japanese as a head teacher in addition to training other teachers.

It is always interesting for me to teach people with different work experiences : ) Because I believe that teaching language always opens my new world!

Don’t worry, if you don’t speak a word of Japanese. Everyone has to start from somewhere… In fact, I am learning Dutch now!

Let’s enjoy learning Japanese language and culture with me!

I have some experience in developing online teaching methods and designing new curriculum for Japanese languages lessons.

Noda-sensei clearly has much experience teaching students with a wide range of abilities. He was immediately able to suggest areas to target in coming lessons. This was very helpful for an advanced intermediate student such as myself. Thanks.
