I'm a passionate tutor who teaches Japanese and few other subjects. I'm a Native Japanese speaker who was born and raised in Japan. I speak English fluently. I received a Bachelor of Education and Fine Arts in Japan, Master of Architecture and MBA in the U.S. I'm a licensed architect and sustainable design professional as well.
Teaching is my passion - as much as architecture - and what I'm good at. I listen and teach patiently from my heart. For many years, I've been tutoring very diversifie...
Kyoko was very patient with my 12-year-old daughter and did a good job of explaining things. Look forward to lesson 2. She was very professional and encouraging.

We are very happy with Kyoko, she really is good in explaining and simplifying the process. As a 69 and a 9 year old son taking the tutoring together she is very straightforward in her approach.

Kyoko was a big help to me today. I?m learning Japanese and finally started working with a tutor. Kyoko helped reinforce what I knew and was very encouraging and supportive. She pointed out some very useful basic phrases and she motivated me to study some things I neglected trying to learn on my own. I?m so happy today was a great experience.

Kyoko has a nice way to connect with my son, and keep my son interested and engaged. She is friendly and flexible. She is obviously a master of the subject.
- Hui C. from Bellaire, TX
My first session with Kyoko was both very fun and educational! We were able to cover a fair amount of material in two hours but it did not feel rushed at all, and we did not move on to the next subject until I was comfortable. Kyoko is a very kind and knowledgeable educator, and I am very happy to have her as my tutor!
- Rachel B. from Renton, WA
Kyoko has been wonderful with our 9 year old son, who's approach to piano has mostly precluded scales and theory...he hears a great song, then learns to play it! With Kyoko's masterful guidance, he is also now reading music and playing scales and mindful of proper finger placement. And he still plays at will, for fun...we are so grateful for her thoughtful guidance, and caring approach! Best of luck, Kyoko. We'll miss you

Kyoko met four times with a small group in our office. She made it clear what was expected of us to reach our goals, and we enjoyed our classes very much. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and finally understanding how much time we would have to dedicate to studying, our group decided to discontinue lessons. This is no reflection at all on Kyoko. If we had more time we would definitely have continued our classes with her.
- Frith B. from Seattle, WA
Kyoko is a very knowledgable and patient tutor. Our first lesson was very thorough and covered the Japanese writing system of Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. We learned the pronunciation of Hiragana and Katakana and how to say "hello", "goodbye", "good morning", and "goodnight". We look forward to more lessons with Kyoko!
- MJ A. from Seattle, WA
I had my first lesson with Kyoko recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. She has her plate full with me, I must say. I not only want speaking and listening practice, but also help with grammar and vocab in order to meet my goal of passing the N1 level of the JLPT in December. I'm confident I'll get there with her help. We had a very interesting conversation and I am looking forward to studying with her more.
- Frith B. from Seattle, WA
Kyoko is so great! My daughter loves her lessons and can't wait for the next one! We recommend Kyoko if you are looking for a patient expert! She takes a lot of Pride in tutoring her students. And the scheduling is very easy.
- Heidie F. from Seattle, WA
Kyoko has been tutoring my son for a few months. He loves Japanese but was falling behind because he missed a lot of classes. He was beginning to loose enthusiasm for a subject that is really difficult even for a student who is able to attend classes regularly. Kyoko helped him bring his grade up from a D to a B with kindness and patience. He feels much better now and will certainly continue his lessons with Kyoko throughout middle school.
- Therese T. from Seattle, WA
Kyoko helps me to learn conversation and other Important components of the language. This helps me to be prepared for future travel plans. She also is an excellent art teacher, I have learned so much.
- Ramona C. from Renton, WA
Excellent with children. Very patient and dedicated. Flexible with timing. I would recommend her with a goat or on a boat. I would recommend her here or there, I would recommend her anywhere.
- Carlos V. from Seattle, WA
My son was able to complete some assignments that he had outstanding. We just started so I will monitor his progress but he liked Kyoko and seemed happy with the help.
- Sheryl F. from Seattle, WA
She teaches me about the concept of sustainable building in my country and give me the confidence to present my argument at my presentation. She's very friendly indeed.
- Henny A. from Washington, DC
With Kyoto I feel like I want to practice more and I want to learn the basic skills to improve my skill. Thank you.
- Nobue F. from Seattle, WA
Kyoko has been a wonderful piano instructor for our kids. She is very patient, encouraging and very understanding of their individual abilities and interests. All kids progressed quite a bit and look forward to their lessons.
- Olga S. from Seattle, WA
I have just began my lessons on Japanese and Kyoko is quite good at what she does. She has a great grasp on teaching language and I find it easy to retain the information the way she presents it. I would highly suggest her for lessons!
- Ian C. from Seattle, WA
I appreciate that she was patient with my disabled son. I would definitely recommend her to others with special needs!
