Information About Satomi - Halesowen teacher - (18 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Satomi:
A native Japanese from Tokyo with the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language. Lived in the UK for over 25 years. Specifically trained to teach non-Japanese learners. Teaching full time as a profession. Fluent in English so that we can discuss about grammar in depth in English. My background is in graphic design but I travelled around New Zealand and Australia before coming to the UK. Through my travel, I met people from many different countries and greatly enjoyed the experience. I live in Kings Norton which is in the south side of Birmingham.
I taught my son Japanese singlehandedly from home without outside help and he got A* for both Japanese GCSE and A level. I take on both adults and students ranging from adults with Japanese connection in business, students who are studying for GCSE/JLPT. Young people who want to live and work in Japan in the future, people who want to watch Japanese anime without subtitles, people who want to visit Japan on holiday and much more. The level of my students range from complete beginners to upper-intermediate. I have also taught groups of children, and a group of adults in a company setting. Both group types had some cultural sessions in which I received excellent feedback.
I am friendly, enthusiastic and dedicated, and am happy to incorporate various aspects of Japan such as culture, anime, food etc. to add depth and insight to enrich your learning experience. I use Skype and online notepad for online lessons, and for both face-to-face and online, I normally issue 'no obligation' weekly homework unless you opt out, from over 30 textbooks and workbooks which I have accumulated over the years. Lessons normally continue throughout the year including school summer holidays and Christmas.

Within two months of learning from Satomi, she was able to confidently exchange greetings in Japanese.
Satomi is a highly skilled professional with a structured approach to teaching Japanese. She leverages her student's strengths to their advantage and maximises learning through guidance, coaching, and follow-ups.
A year on, my daughter is now able to confidently converse in Japanese at intermediate level and it is improving with time.
I am ever so grateful to Satomi for her professionalism and impact on her student.
Thanks so much Satomi… !!!
I have completed 5 lessons with her and am very impressed. Her lessons are both challenging and fun, however she is patient and always takes the time to explain anything not understood.
Would highly recommend.
