It is the difficult time now.
But you can still continue learning Japanese with me.
Let me help you.

I am a highly qualified former Japanese lecturer with over 20 years experience. I taught at secondary school and university levels for many years. Currently I am teaching Japanese to all levels including VCE Japanese, JLPT and business Japanese. If you want to gain high scores, enlist my services and you won't look back! My lessons are fun and very effective. Depending on your goals and needs, I will tailor your lessons accordingly. I am a patient, generous and very approachable teacher with a sense of humour (^^).

Over the past years some of my former students have achieved the highest level in JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test), IB (7/7) and many students gained RAW scores of 40 and higher.

I help you with grammar, kanji, essay writing, reading comprehension and plenty of listening and speaking lessons (preparation for SAC). Are you ready for your detail studies and general conversation?

I also cater for those who want to learn conversational Japanese that can be useful when travelling to Japan or conversing with Japanese friends anywhere. After having first lesson, I guarantee you will be able to speak some Japanese. All my students are expected to do homework and revisions after each lesson. Lessons are conducted in a comfortable lounge setting and supervised by my friendly fat cat.
My teaching hours are very flexible which includes normal working hours, evenings, and weekends.

Japanese (Introduction, Intermediate, Advanced)

"I started learning Japanese from scratch with help from Sakura since year 9. Without her help and guidance every step of the way I know that my Japanese would not be near the level it is today. With Sakura, you'll not only find yourself an amazing teacher (ended up with a 40 VCE raw study score yay) but also an amazing friend (can attest to what she said about sense of humour haha). Definitely check her out if you want to improve your Japanese (for VCE or JPLT or just for fun etc) and especially if you want to learn about the social and cultural context surrounding the language. Came into it all with a slight interest in the language and now I've come out having a deep appreciation for the language and culture as a whole. 10/10 would recommend :)"
