My name is Kataoka.
I completed the Japanese Teachers' Training Diploma Course at Regent's College, London, passing the examination set by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate(UCLES) in March 1997.
After completing this course I taught Japanese language in London before returning to Japan to open my own Japanese language school in Oita in 1999.
I also taught at Beppu University and Asia Pacific University(APU).
I have move to London June 2016.
Over 17 years, I have taught more than 500 people from 26 countries. Their levels ranged from complete beginner to advanced.
Because of my experience in London, I can understand how people feel when they encounter difficulty with their studies. I believe that this experience assists me in helping my students.
Moreover, as I used to work in the Japanese Government as a secretary to a member of parliament and also worked in an insurance company, I know about Japanese Business style very well, so I can teach you what you need to know when working with Japanese people.
I always arrange lessons to suit my students' requirements. I have specialised in designing and running classes for students wishing to take the JLPT and have set tests to ascertain what level they should aim for.
Please let me know what you want to study with me.
I am really looking forward to enjoying the lessons with you.
