Information About Yukiko - Rugby teacher - (11 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Yukiko:
I am a native speaker. I am from Japan (Kyoto) and have been living in UK for last 20 years. I have a degree in English Literature in Japan. In Japan, I am a qualified teacher to teach English at the secondary school. I taught English at the private language school in Japan. In UK, previously I worked mainly as a translator until I started teaching Japanese. I am the mother of one child.
I have been teaching Japanese to the secondary students and grown-ups last several years. One of my studetns took GCSE Japanese and got A*. I am also teaching a group of billingual primary school pupils based on the requirements in Japan. I often participate trainings held at Japan Foudnation in London to update my knowledge and skills. I use teaching materials developed or recommended for GCSE by JF. I also have other supporting materials which are not easy to get in UK.
Each students has a different purpose, style of learning and expectation. I always strucutre my lesson based on an individual needs. I make my own materials (exercise, reading and writing tasks, etc.), use a lot of visula aids, cards, picutres and incorportae an interesiting episode about Japan. I often make my student laugh, amuse with things in Japan so that they will not lose an interest becuase sometimes learing a language so different form European languages is difficult!

It was my pleasure to have you as a student. I hope your good luck in your study.
Thank you very much for your comment. I will do my best to meet your expectation! Yukiko
When I messaged her she responded in a very timely manner and was so accommodating, the first time I meet her she was so bubbly and friendly, she made me feel so welcome and comfy.
The lesson that followed was perfectly paced, she was so patient, which for a total beginner was amazing and explained everything in a very understandable manner far more than any book could.
Offering excellent information on local culture and a offering a perfect environment for further questions on anything Japanese.
I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Japanese.
Although the language teaching is excellent, I also enjoy conversing about all aspects of Japanese life and culture, both of which she is extremely knowledgeable. She is always more than willing give up her own time to answer any questions I have. She is currently lending me a book about Japanese culture!
I have never had a flair for language, but it's amazing to see the progress I've made in such a short amount of time and I can genuinely attribute most of that to Yukiko-sans teaching style.
I thoroughly enjoy her lessons and look forward to them every week. I would highly recommend her.
