About me


My name is Emi. I am a native Japanese and English speaker, currently residing in the state of Arizona (USA).

Although, I was born and raised in the United States, I completed the majority of my schooling in Japan.

While I am new to the Verbalplanet platform, I have been teaching both English and Japanese since the late 90s. (yes, I'm old).

My personal interests include yoga, reading and photography. I enjoy teaching, and I find it extremely gratifying when my students reach the next level!

Teaching Approach

I am flexible and enjoy teaching students of all levels. All lessons are tailored to your needs.

Tell me your main goals, and together we will devise a plan.

For beginners and intermediate students, I suggest we work with the book, "Genki", as I feel its one of the most comprehensive text books out there.

However, if you would rather focus on conversational skills, we can make that happen as well. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
