Your Japanese Tutor in Melbourne


Izumi is the head teacher at one of the largest Japanese language schools in Melbourne and has taught Japanese to hundreds of different students Japanese as well being responsible for training new teachers and designing the curriculum for students.

Working at a private school, the most important thing is to adapt 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's Mission

"To provide the best learning experience for my students"

Learning Japanese isn’t easy, just as learning English wasn’t easy for me.

There are a million different ways to learn something new, and I will do my best to put together lessons that suit your personality and learning style.

I want to make the experience of learning Japanese as enjoyable and easy as possible.


Why Choose Izumi?



She has been teaching Japanese for a 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.

And for all you visual learners, Izumi is a star at summing up major learning points with cute cartoon / manga drawings.

Cartoon Art

For those that are learning for the most part on their own and without a textbook you will walk away from Izumi’s lessons with a number of drawings that cover the key learnings from the class. Put enough classes together and you will almost have a personalised textbook.If you are already in a formal Japanese language program (high school or Uni) with a prescribed textbook, you will walk away with supplementary learning cartoons that are more personalised than what you institution is offering.


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.
