About me

【 Hi there! I will be out of country from May 19 until May 29 and I will be available to teach from May 30. Please feel free to make trial / regular lesson bookings anytime from May 30. Arigato! 】

Konnichiwa, ogenki desuka?

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 Japanese teachers. I also have work experiences in hotel / travel, media / TV, and business consulting industries.

It is always interesting for me to teach people with different work experiences and back grounds : ) 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!
