Minna-san Konnichiwa!!

I'm Haruka, It's a pleasure to meet you! I was born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan and I'm currently teaching Japanese.

Having qualifications in teaching Japanese, I'm able to teach various levels; at the moment I have experience teaching beginner courses, primary school level and can teach all the way up to the JLPT N1 level.




Institute : Fukuoka YWCA

Course : Teaching Japanese as a Second Language 

               ( 420 hours of training at a Japanese government accredited course. )

​Date of completion: 2017

  • Working at private schools in London, teaching Japanese to adults and children.(2017-2019)

  • Private tutoring (online/in person) (2010-currently)

  • Teaching Japanese to foreign students at public schools in Fukuoka.(2019-currently)

Teaching Style

The Style I use to teach Japanese is the "Direct Method" where I will try to communicate and explain everything in Japanese. I use this method as it is the most effective way of learning languages. If students have a difficult time understanding the Japanese being taught, I will assist by using English to help them.


Only using Japanese during lessons from the start may sound difficult, but students slowly get used to it and improve quicker through this style!

Let's do our best together!!

While learning Japanese during lessons, I will also teach students aspects of Japanese culture. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding lessons.
