여러분 안녕하세요. 大家 好. My name is Ayaki. I was born and grew up in Osaka, Japan. Currently, I live in England. I like baking, reading, playing piano and walking in mountains and nature. Also, I travel a lot around Japan, but I especially love traveling to various countries overseas. I enjoy learning about other cultures and getting to know people from all over the world.

I'm having the best time learning with Ayaki sensei. Although I used to be embarrassed speaking in another language, especially in the beginning stages, I have never felt this way with Japanese while learning with Ayaki sensei. She's so patient and encouraging, and her materials are personalised and thoughtful, which adds to the class experience. I look forward to my class every week and look forward to building my Japanese in 2023 :)

Ayaki sensei is an excellent teacher. Even from our first trial lesson, she was quite thorough and well-prepared. Her lessons are well-structured and she adapts them to whatever you wish to work on, whether it's a particular grammar point, studying for a future exam, or just practicing conversation. I'm usually nervous speaking in Japanese, but with Ayaki sensei I feel quite comfortable and I very much enjoy our lessons. I would 100% recommend her.

I learned today that Ayaki sensei creates all her own materials! I had always thought that they were from a textbook. They are so clear and engaging, with simple but thorough explanations of grammar and vocabulary. I looked in the two classic textbooks for beginner's Japanese and was surprised I didn't see any of the materials she used! The textbooks don't compare at all. So much effort and thought goes into every lesson and they enhance the quality so much :)

I am going to Japan for the first time in a couple of days and thanks to Ayaki sensei I feel prepared to try to use my Japanese :) Although Ayaki had prepared a lesson plan, as always, she was flexible and helped me practice some travel Japanese at the beginning of class and throughout the main lesson incorporated scenarios in which I could use my new vocabulary and grammar into my travels in Japan. I'm always so grateful for Ayaki's thoughtfulness and comprehensive guidance in class. ありがとう ございます ^^

I took a break of a couple of months from studying Japanese for personal reasons, during which time Ayaki reached out to ask how I was doing, which was really kind and thoughtful. I had my first class back today and asked if we could review what I had learned, as I felt I had forgotten a lot. Ayaki prepared a lot of materials to help refresh my Japanese, and was extremely patient, encouraging and kind. I missed studying Japanese a lot, but particularly Ayaki's classes and Ayaki herself, as she always brightens up my day with her positivity and passion for her classes. A wonderful teacher and a wonderful person with so much thought for her students :) thank you again.
