Hi everyone! I’m Maki from Japan and I was raised in Shizuoka where is famous for Mt. Fuji. While teaching Japanese, I have worked as a travel coordinator to help local people go to Japan in New Zealand for 3 years. After moving to England, my career as a tutor has been expanded. Currently I live in Japan and I am so excited to share current events in Japan with you. I’m specialised to introduce you not only languages but Japanese culture or tips to travel in Japan! Hope you will get large amount of travel information to Japan as well as language skills from me while having lessons!

I highly recommend Maki as a teacher. Maki's kindness and patience make every lesson enjoyable and comfortable. Her preparedness and excellent teaching materials ensure that each session is productive and engaging. Maki strikes the perfect balance between practical conversation and grammar, making learning enjoyable and effective. With her guidance, I feel that I will be confident and well-prepared for the JLPT N4 exam. Maki's dedication to covering all exam materials has been invaluable, and I consider myself fortunate to have her as my teacher.

I really enjoy Maki's lessons. I learn a lot, and the relaxed atmosphere makes me feel more confident to speak even if I make mistakes. Maki is a patient and flexible teacher who matches the lesson content to your learning and interests. I am very much looking forward to my next lesson!

Another good lesson with まき! All of the usual good preparation, fun conversation, and exercises. This time with grammar testing too, aligned to JLPT which helps to benchmark my grammar understanding and improve my weak points. Thanks again!

Maki-san is more than just a teacher. She is a good friend. Classes with her don’t feel like classes as they are so fun and amazing. Anyone wanting to learn Japanese, just go with Maki-san without giving it a second thought.
