Hello everyone. My name is Mayuna.
I am a native Japanese speaker and a qualified Japanese language tutor. I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan, and currently live in Osaka since 2017. I also have spent about 6 years of my life in English-speaking countries, including Australia and the United Kingdom.
Me as a Teacher
I've been teaching Japanese since 2018. In addition to teaching, I host a podcast on the Japanese language and have been distributing articles in the italki community since 2021 (#JapaneseLeague). My website: https://japanesemayuna.com/
My lessons & teaching style
There is no minimum level requirement for my lessons. You don’t have to bring anything to the class. Please feel free to book a trial lesson and see if it’s right for you. Lessons are very flexible and cater to students’ needs. Lesson content ranges from casual conversation to test preparation.
Mayuna-san was really cheerful and helpful throughout the lesson. She quickly gauged my level and was able to both find more classical teaching materials to challenge me, but also to keep up the pace with fun, relevant speaking activities. She was also fantastic in gently upgrading and correcting my language throughout the lesson, and built in revision opportunities throughout.
Overall, a really strong lesson delivered by an experienced, knowledgeable teacher. Absolutely loved it, I am coming back for more!

Very good with correcting grammatical mistakes and good homework assignment. Always takes note of topics to make for a very easy flowing and personally engaging conversation

Another great lesson with Mayuna-san! She answered all of my questions really well, and helped to expand my vocabulary. She's always really fun and easy to talk to, and I am already looking forward to our next lesson!

Another fantastic lesson! We chatted a lot, Mayuna answered all of the questions that I brought to the lesson, and we revised things from our previous lesson. We have a plan for the next one, and I'm really looking forward to it!
