Starting in December I will be taking an indefinite break from teaching on Italki. For students that have purchased packages, we can rearrange the remaining lessons. Thanks everyone so much! I'll really miss teaching you guys!

About yuri

Informal lessons:
Open conversation
We’ll have conversations on basically any topic you like. I will correct any mistakes that you make and will also answer any questions that you may have. For these lessons, you will need to know at least basic Japanese grammar and should at least be able to communicate at a basic level. I do not use any books or prepare any other materials for informal lessons, but I’d be happy to ask you questions for you to practice answering during the session.

Professional lessons:
I will teach using materials that I have prepared in advance or if you prefer, we can use a textbook. Professional courses are more structured than informal courses; I will prepare a variety of exercises, activities and drills to engage you. Unlike informal lessons which are just open conversation, professional lessons will follow a lesson plan similar to that of a classroom course.

Books I have are:
The Minna no Nihongo series
The Genki series
The Shin Nihongo no Kiso series
Japanese for busy people
etc, for example.

I can help you reach your Japanese goals. Professional lessons can start at the very basics of Japanese conversation and take you up to an upper intermediate speaking level. For that reason, most materials I prepare are aimed at improving your communication/conversation skills.

*** In case you need to cancel ***
I know that there may be several reasons for not being able to come to a lesson, and in that case, you can reschedule the session for another time as long as you do it before the day of the session.
If you would like to cancel your lesson instead of rescheduling, please give me notification before cancelling. Without prior notification, I may not be able to comply with your request. Please look at the FAQ about session cancellation:
