About Me

Testimonial from a current student

I have been taking weekly lessons for just one hour with Nori for over 3 years. With his guidance I've developed from a rudimentary understanding of basic grammatical constructs and minimal vocabulary, to being able to read news, manga, novels. I'm able to understand videos, movies and anime and, most important, converse in daily casual and professional conversation. Nori finds materials and articles that match your level and interest; he speaks to you in Japanese at a good speed to force your listening skill to develop. He also takes time not simply to explain the usage of certain constructs, but shows you why they exist. With Nori you will learn the actual history of the language you learn, which is interesting and helpful in learning and understanding, and instrumental to memorising.

I think it's obvious that I recommend Nori from the perspective of a long term learner. If you're serious about Japanese, he’ll get you to the next step and guide you on your journey.

I am an experienced Japanese Language teacher who has been providing one-to-one and group based tuition to non-Japanese people in London and nearby areas since 2001. I am native Japanese and before moving to London, was a professional teacher working within the Japanese education system for seven years. I built on this experience and qualifications by becoming a qualified teacher in Japanese as a Foreign Language.

I also have a network of other Japanese teachers within London. I can recommend them when I can not offer you suitable classes.
