Hello, my name is Kahori.
I am from Japan and have been living in the UK for nearly 10 years now.
If you are interested to learn Japanese but not confident to start it alone, want to improve your Japanese or if you are looking to learn real Japanese expressions. Let me help you!
Living in the UK, it surprised me that the English I have learnt in Japan, which I believed to be perfectly correct, was not all that correct at times. Armed with this knowledge I hope to teach some new phrases and expressions to Japanese people looking to improve their English skills.
Also, it amuses me when meeting new English people I encounter new unique phrases each time.
I love learning the most appropriate and polite English expressions (so that I can teach my children) as well as learning fun casual expressions.
In the past, many of my students moved to Japan, or traveled to there for Holiday. They all said how helpful it was to have some knowledge of the language beforehand. Of course you can learn just for fun too!
These experiences make me think, how I can translate this in Japanese so you can have a better understanding of Japanese and it is fun to brush up on my own Japanese in this way.
You never stop learning.
So, let's have fun talking and learning together!
Looking forward to hearing from any intrepid students.
- Private freelance tutor (Japanese and English) since 2008.
Over the years, I have taught more than 30 people, through 1 to 1(online and face to face), or group lessons. Long term or short term depending on the pupil's needs. However, I have always had good relationships with each of them, and always recieved positive feedback.
- Certified Teacher at Yorkshire Humberside Japanese School since 2011.
- CRB checked (Criminal Records Bureau approved - for when working with children)
- Mother of 3 bi-lingual children.
I prefer a more relaxed, informal approach to learning.
Using tools and resources I have acquired from teaching different ages of children I will apply them to lessons for beginners:
- Basic communication.
- Common phrases and situations
- Simple reading and writing in Hiragana and Katakana
- Language etiquette (to avoid common mistakes)
These tools include - flash cards, story books, practice writing sheets (as PDFs), phrase cards, role play.
I want learning Japanese to be a fun experience not a stressful one. So we will learn at your pace and only increase the level as you become more confident.
- For the more advanced students a more comprehensive range learning materials are provided through which homework and exercises can be followed in the students spare time.
If the student wants a more specific topic on which to study, this can easily be incorporated.

Would recommend to anyone who is considering learning Japanese.
It is very kind of you saying so,but that is also becouse of your excellent leaning skilles and the great pacience too.
I am having fun on each lesson.
It's been such honour to having lessons with you.
I am honored to be able to leaen Japanese with you.
Lucky is my word actually. You are the very best student I could ask for.
Your learning attitude is very sincere, highly motivated, and you try to improve what you have learned with me on your own, which is key to leaning a language.
Also yes, I agree with "hit it off", I felt very comfortable learning with you.
Though it is very kind of you rating me as 5/5, it could be too soon to decide for you.
I hope you will think the same way even at the end of several more lessons.
