Japanese with Yoshiko
Thank you for reading my profile.
I was born and raised in Japan. I have been living in Saudi Arabia since Dec 2022.
I have been married to a Saudi Arabian husband and have one bilingual 4 year old boy.
Teaching Japanese is my main job and I really love it!!
I like learning languages, watching English dramas, eating a variety of food, work-out, yoga, and traveling.
I studied Mongolian,Thai,Uzbek,Spanish and Arabic.
Me as a Teacher
I took two Japanese teaching courses. One is for starters and beginners and the other one is for all levels. I have taught Japanese to many nationalities both in English and Japanese since 2021.
Most of my students are regular students.
I am a friendly, curious and open-minded person.
I really enjoy sharing Japanese culture and learning about other cultures.
I have experience of travel agencies and hotels so we can talk about sightseeing spots in Japan. We can also discuss parenting and Arabic culture.
The strong points of my lessons are having review time, giving you chances to think the correct way to say instead of telling you the answer right away, and organized notes.
My lessons & teaching style
【In my lessons, you can realize your mistakes, get to know new phrases and practice to use them in a correct way for the next time.】
My lessons are mainly conversation.
My lesson style is learning from your interests, what you want to say or something you want to solve.
The main goals in my lessons are speaking Japanese naturally ( not like textbooks) and learning new vocabulary at the same time.
Therefore, I will type your mistakes and explain them right away or at the end of the lesson.
(Whichever you prefer!)
I will share your google document and you can refer to it anytime.
*I don't offer lessons like test preparation, business communication, grammer or script focused lessons.

I had another fun lesson talking about Family with Yoshiko-Sensei. As always Yoshiko-Sensei listens patiently and provides detailed and useful feedback so I can feel myself really improving after each lesson. Looking forward to the next one!

今日もありがとうございました！I have had quite a few lessons with Yoshiko-san, and she always comes very well-prepared for our lessons (and is super flexible when it comes to scheduling)! Yoshiko-san is excellent at teaching vocab/asking questions that are specific to you and your interests (i.e. work, school, culture, etc.), and I find myself using a lot of the new words that I've learned from her!! これからもよろしくお願いします！
