About Akiko

I am a Japanese national who has completed eight Japanese language beginners courses (10 weeks each) as a language instructor at colleges based in Liverpool and Manchester. In a formal course review exercise, I received excellent ratings from my college students with respect to the various teaching components of the course. 

I am adept at recognising how best to target my teaching approach, particularly with respect to students who have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language using my fluency in verbal and written English and Japanese. My teaching experience includes 18 months as a language instructor to college students in Japan, in one-to-one, and group teaching as an employee at a language school. 

In addition, I was employed in the Japan university sector as a translator of English to Japanese and vice versa, and as a business translator involving UK and Japanese companies. I therefore have language teaching experience acquired over several years in various settings. My doctoral degree is sociology-based supporting the teacher-student interaction for making solid progress in learning.

My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Sumaya
Akiko is just the tutor that I was looking for; her classes are well structured, packed little culture notes and other fun, relevant examples that a book alone just doesn't expose you to or keep you engaged. Akiko is friendly and encouraging, she has helped me understand and overcome a lot of things that I had struggled with as a self learner. I highly recommend her and wish I had signed up earlier!
