About Me

Testimonial from a current student

I studied Japanese at university and was a bit rusty when I started with Noriyuki 2 years ago. He assessed my level at the first lesson and started me just where I left off.

From the moment I started taking classes from Noriyuki, I knew I'd found the right Japanese teacher. Teaching Japanese is Noriyuki's full-time profession, not a side job, and it shows. His approach is the perfect combination of being structured yet flexible - structured because he's very organized and thinks through what each lesson should focus on, but flexible because he tailors the lesson to each student's individual needs. He achieves this because he has a wealth of teaching materials, whether it's a mid-level textbook, a listening CD, or anything else. (I think he knows every book that's ever been written about learning Japanese!) Need practice with conversation? Noriyuki knows the right book and listening materials to use. Need help with a particular grammar pattern? Noriyuki can pull out plenty of examples and review them with you. On top of that, he's in tune with all of the Japanese cultural events in London (including a bit of sake tasting), which only makes the lessons more fun.

If you're looking to learn, improve or maintain your Japanese, you simply won't find a better teacher than Noriyuki.

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.
