Hello Everyone! I am Fumi. I was born and raised in Japan. I grew up in the Kansai area, so I speak standard Japanese and the Kansai dialect. I worked at the International Center, and I helped many people who came from abroad set up their new life in Japan. Now I have been living in the USA for over 14 years.
I love traveling and exploring a new world. I had been to Switzerland, Australia, Canada, etc. Nomad life and traveling all around the world are my dreams.
I also love cooking and eating! I cook Asian foods almost every day.
Me as a Teacher
I have many experiences in teaching Japanese from Beginner to Intermediate.
Supporting people learning Japanese to achieve their goals is the biggest joy for me!
- Helped people from abroad start a new life in Japan and taught them daily conversation
- Japanese private tutor in Japan (Beginner to Intermediate)
- Translator in a foreign pharmaceutical company in Japan
- Online Japanese tutor in the US
Learning languages is fun but at the same time, we struggle with it. Don't be afraid of making mistakes in my lessons. I believe making mistakes and correcting them is the fastest way of learning languages. Let's have fun and do our best together!
My lessons & teaching style
I like my classes to be fun and interactive. You are always welcome to ask questions and let me know if there is anything you would like to learn (such as pronunciation, casual or polite way, Kansai-dialect, etc.). The more you enjoy our lessons together, the more you'll retain the language. I like the relaxed teaching style and it makes approachable each other. With language learning, I know how important it is that you feel secure enough to make mistakes and ask questions. I am friendly and patient with my students and love to see your progress!
