About Me
italki teacher since Feb 12, 2022
Hi, thank you for visiting my profile page! I'm Fumi, a dedicated teacher for you :) If you're nervous about taking lessons with me, I'd like to say, please don't worry about making mistakes! It's a safe place. Just express yourself a lot in my class! I understand how hard it is to learn a new language. I had a hard time being an exchange student in the US a long time ago, and I still struggle to find the right words or expressions when I speak English, which you'll see in my lessons. We can work together to improve your Japanese! I live with my husband, three children, and two cats in Yamanshi. Right now I'm learning the Korean language.

I am thoroughly enjoying my classes with Fumi and they have helped me so much with both my speaking and listening comprehension. Pitch accent has been difficult for me but Fumi is such an encouraging and effective teacher - I am looking forward to our next class.

Fumi sensei is a true professional and I am grateful for the opportunity to take lessons with her. Her calm reassuring voice, very deep knowledge of the language, and engaging personality really make the process enjoyable. After each lesson, she sends detailed notes and recordings which keep me motivated and focused until our next meeting. I have followed her advice and started recording myself speaking and it is really starting to pay off! I still have a LOT to learn , but I am confident I will reach my goals with Fumi Sensei by my side. I highly recommend her classes. ふみ先生のおかげさまで、日本語が上達し始めて、とても楽しいです!ありがとうございました!

Fumi Sensei, is very accomodating and flexible with her teaching methods. Even though I sign up for her pitch accent class, she adjusts it to my needs regarding questions on grammar and any other questiojns I may have about the language. As a beginner in Japanese she has also found ways to implement Japanese into our lessons even though it is taught in English. She prepares a dropbox file after the lesson to allow you to restudy the material afterwards so nothing is forgotten. I highly recommend Fumi, if you are looking for a teacher who is organized, adapatable, encouraging, and reinforces good practices for speaking Japanese.

Fumi Sensei is incredibly welcoming and patient. I have been learning Japanese for a few years and have since degraded due to a lack of keeping up with it, and she was more than welcoming to helping me learn new things as well as clean up my Japanese. I will absolutely be scheduling more in the future :)

When I first started taking lessons with Fumi-sensei, it was really difficult for me to even hear the Japanese pitch accent. I still have a long way to go but now I am starting to not only hear it but am able to speak using some of the patterns. The learning environment in class is very encouraging so even though I have difficulty with some words or phrases I am motivated to keep trying!

Yet again, another wonderful lesson with ふみせんせい!She is patient and through. I still get nervous during lessons, but her encouragement helps me push past that. If you are on the fence about scheduling a lesson with ふみせんせい、just do it!
