I am a professional Japanese language educator and a social scientist. I teach all levels of Japanese and help with exams and assignments in Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities for GCSE`s, IB, A Levels, University Undergraduates and Postgraduates.
I studied at the Osaka University of Foreign Studies on the Japanese Ministry of Education scholarship and have a university degree in teaching Japanese as well as Level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency (JLPT) Test and the JETRO Business Japanese certificate. Over my post-graduate (MA and PhD) education at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, I attended 24 courses in the Social Sciences, Arts, Humanities, and Languages of East and Southeast Asia.
Currently a doctoral researcher and academic mentor at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, I also work at the JLPT exam in London. I am a member of the SOAS Japan Research Centre, the British Association of Japanese Teachers, the International Association for Asian Studies, the British Association for Japanese Studies, and the Japan Society of the UK.
In addition to my academic pursuits, I have worked for a number of Japanese multinationals and SMEs around the world. Using that experience as a Certified Cross-Cultural Trainer I provide executive coaching and give interactive workshops on doing business with Japanese companies: the do`s and don`ts, how to gain and maintain trust, keigo (honorific speech), Japanese business etiquette and correspondence, etc.
I also take on specialist translation and interpreting projects from and into Japanese, having worked with the likes of Toyota Motors, the NHK, Ricoh, and Cendant Moblity.
Being a huge language buff and thanks to the international life I have lived, I have a written and conversational command of Chinese, Thai, Russian, Dutch, French and a few other languages.

Experience: I have taught Japanese for nearly 25 years. I have successfully prepared numerous students for their GCSE`s, A-levels, IB, and university examinations. I can help with your Japanese school or university coursework. I provide full-on individual preparation for your Japanese exam as an external student. I also teach adults for business and hobby purposes and mentor undergraduate and postgraduate students for essays, dissertations and exams.
I have worked as an academic mentor at my university for over 5 years. I assist both graduate and postgraduate students with all aspects of essay writing, dissertations, exam revision, individual research projects etc. I have successfully helped with hundreds of written assignments for all faculties across Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities, including but not limited to
Media and Communication Studies
I usually pick up from where the lecturer/supervisor failed the student and help them finish successfully their coursework:
individual research projects.
I also help develop Study Skills, Life and Time Management Skills, give advice on career and academic development, help deal with various study-related issues.
