【Podcast】 【Instagram】 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 also specialised to introduce you not only languages but Japanese culture or tips to travel in Japan!

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!

I find her structured approach very pleasant. We started with basic things and I already got a good impression of the language and learned a few words. So if you want to learn Japanese or find out more about Japanese culture, this is the place for you. I'm looking forward for the next lesson.

I have been learning with Maki San for over a year now and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every lesson. Each lesson is customised towards my goals as a learner and starts with fun conversation about various topics. I can look back over the year and see how much I have improved thanks to Maki San's support and encouragement.
