About me

My name is Mayumi. I am a native Japanese speaker and have been living in London since 2001. I work as a private tutor as well as an interpreter and a translator.


In 2002, I completed a course on TJFL (Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language). This course involved many hours of actual teaching experience. Since then, I have been teaching Japanese on a private basis. In addition, I have an experience of teaching English as a foreign language to Japanese children. 


Studying Japanese is not too hard and can be a great fun. I provide private lessons online. The teaching is done through the English language, however, don't worry if you are not an English speaker and understand only a little English, I will help you to learn along the way.

"Mayumi sensei's lessons were fantastic! They were enjoyable and she made it easy and fun to learn. At first, I thought studying Japanese would be difficult however, she helped me to understand all the way through with patience. I would recommend her to everyone who would like to learn Japanese.”

"I had the opportunity of experiencing an interactive group lesson presented by Mayumi sensei, which I found exciting. I was not only excited to learn new words and phrases in Japanese, but to experience such an organised yet fun lesson. Mayumi sensei has a great way of getting her students to engage. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed her class.”

"I am so glad that I signed up for your lessons. I have learnt so much and my pronunciation has improved a lot. My Japanese colleagues are incredibly impressed with my progression. Thank you so much, Mayumi sensei. Keep up the good work!”
