Hello! I’m Mas, and I’m a native Japanese speaker. I am a qualified Japanese teacher who has completed the Japanese teaching certification program at the Department of Education at Soka University in Tokyo, Japan. This program was developed by the leading professors and researchers of Japanese teaching. I acquired innovative teaching methods based on the latest theories of language teaching and learning—and these have all been adapted to Japanese language learning for foreign learners.

Availability: I am available between 10am – 7pm. Online Booking

Venue: The classroom is  located at Newcastle upon Tyne (City Centre West near RVI/Newcastle University, 15 min walk from Haymarket metro station). Car park available.

Teaching experience:

Outside the classroom, I’m also teaching Japanese for a variety of students at Nissan, The Language Centre, and North East of England Japanese School in the North East of England.

My other interests? I have practised karate since age six and have a wealth of knowledge about other martial arts such as aikido and kenjutsu (swordsmanship). If you are interested in learning Japanese for Martial Arts, check out Japanese for Martial Arts.

I’m also a big fan of Japanese animation and films, and I always keep myself up to date on popular TV shows.

In my class, I guarantee that you will receive an effective, flexible, and eye-opening Japanese lesson that meets your needs for Japanese.

I accept all students, from Beginner to Advanced levels. You will enjoy immersing yourself in Japanese language from Day 1, regardless of your level.
