I am an enthusiastic teacher of Japanese language and culture, having been teaching both in Japan and here in New Zealand to a variety of ages, abilities, and nationalities for over 10 years. This has included classroom lessons in Japan and at primary and high school level, as well as private tuition with university-level students.

I pride myself on being a well-organised and diligent tutor and am always seeking the best for my students – whatever their personal Japanese learning goals may be!
