Hi, my name is Yumi, it is so nice to meet you! I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Chiba (land of peanuts and home to Tokyo Disney Resorts!), Japan. Let me introduce two of my favourite things: The 1st one is traveling. I love exploring new places, getting lost, learning about history and cultures during a trip. There were over 15 countries I had visited before the pandemic and I have even lived in the UK for more than 4 years. I've moved to the Netherlands since March 2023 and I'm enjoying a new adventure! My other favourite is...anime and manga! I also am a big fan of voice actors. My favourite works? Don’t get me started. You can find out more if you take a lesson!

Just learned Katakana G line, Yumi sensei explains it really well especially when learning G lines for hiragana with katakana and comparing both together. It makes the understanding simpler and recognizing the characters much quicker also and helps me slowly visualize what the word looks like.

Yumi-sensei is a great teacher that will meet your Japanese level and customize your lessons accordingly in regards to what you want to focus on. She's really easy to talk to, and will challenge you to think critically in order to improve. Super helpful, approachable, and resourceful. The learning environment she creates motivates you to get better. Highly recommend!

This was my daughter’s first lesson with Yumi-sensei and she loved it! Yumi was able to quickly build a great rapport with my daughter and they talked about anime, food, among other things. I will definitely be booking more lessons for my daughter. Arigato!

Yumi-sensei provided me with a list of vocabularies each week for a reading comprehension lesson. We do the reading together and she checked my understanding. When I don't understand something, she explained it in simple Japanese. It's exactly what I wanted and needed to improve. Thank you so much!!
