Aiko Tamaki
Japanese Teacher and Academic Manager

Hi everyone!

How are you?

This is Aiko.

Nice to meet you :)

I oversee the academic content of our services and also run teacher training programmes.

If you need our support, please let us know. We will be delighted to help :)

I have been teaching international students from various age groups, nationalities, levels and professional back grounds with their individual study goals for just over 19 years now.

I have taught in Japan for 10 years now. Before that, I was teaching in Taiwan and Ireland. I have been supporting students to establish their language skills in order so that you can have a head start at work and school in Japan and your own country.

Learning and teaching Japanese might come across challenging but depending on how you approach, it can be a lot of fun too.

I will be delighted to answer all your questions.

See you soon!


Akiko Iwai
Japanese Teacher

Hi everyone,

How are you?

My name is Akiko Iwai.

I'm from Tokyo :)

I am a Japanese teacher and I have also been working as a receptionist at a medical clinic for over 20 years.

I am passionate about teaching the language and helping patients.

Fro me, both professions are similar to one another. They require thoughtfulness, compassion as well as attention to the details.

I will learn what you are strong at and weak at and provide solutions accordingly to help you improve your overall Japanese language skills.

In my private life, I enjoy cooking, baking, calligraphy, flamenco, and many other hobbies :)

Now I'm challenging Indian dance! 

Let's work together.

Looking forward to seeing you!
