Izumi is one of Melbourne’s most experienced Japanese teachers with over 10 year’s experience teaching at all levels in Australia. During this time she has taught at primary schools, secondary schools and tutored groups of university students. She was even the head teacher at one of the largest Japanese language schools in Melbourne.
Izumi’s mission is to provide the best learning experience for her students and to make the experience of learning Japanese as enjoyable and easy as possible. She achieves this by taking the time to get to know each and every student and putting together personalised lessons that suit their personality and learning style. Each class is adapted classes to individual student needs and the diversity of her students and their stories is one of the things she likes the most.
However, you will also quickly learn that is Izumi has her own quirks that make her lessons interesting and memorable beyond the learning experience.
Izumi special talents include: Always looking fashionable (even on off days), making people smile with her cute and unassuming nature and explaining the most complex of Japanese language concepts in a series of cute and playful cartoons / manga.
Izumi has been teaching Japanese for quite a long time and has quickly learned to adapt her lessons to each student. To most, it may seem like Izumi’s Lessons are very laid back – but they are in fact very deliberate. Conversational topics cover the most important learning points, but always remain fun and interesting. For visual learners, Izumi is a star at summing up major learning points with cute cartoon / manga style drawings.
Forget the stifled planned conversations from school language lessons.
Imagine talking about topics you are actually interested in! The more you share of yourself and your interests, the more Izumi will try and tailor the learning experience to those topics.
Japanese the interesting way.
