About Me

Hi!
My name is Yuko.
I have an MA degree in teaching Japanese as a foreign language and a BA in classical Japanese literature.
I've been teaching Japanese for more than 15 years.
I used to have my own Japanese school in Osaka, Japan, until 2011, but now I try to stay home longer for my son.

About my teaching style:
-My teaching style is relaxed, patient, and engaging.
-I can customize lessons to your specific needs.
-I understand different communication and learning styles.
-I'm also studying special needs education for learning disabilities. If you struggle reading and/or writing, I can give you some effective advice.

A little about me and my interests:
-I love reading (my favorite novelist is Haruki Murakami)
-I've been practicing Aikido for about 5 years
-I've been taking narrating voice over lessons

If you have any questions about class, please let me know.
Thanks for reading my profile, and I look forward to meeting you online soon!
