Здравствуйте!! Меня зовут Йоко!
Hello! I’m YOKO.T. I normally work as a tour guide-interpreter, helping Russians get to know Japan!

I started teaching Russian because I wanted to help get more Japanese people interested in the country and the language.

I first set my sights on Russian when I was in high school. Russian is a very beautiful sounding language. My admiration for the country intensified and I left Japan to study abroad in Russia. When I was posted to the Russian office of a trading company, I got to experience life in Russia and learn from my Russian friends just how wonderful the country is.

Then I switched jobs and started working at a news agency, where I learned the ABC’s of translation and began working as a freelance interpreter, translator, and tour guide-interpreter.

For beginners:If you’re just getting started with Russian, we’ll begin with simple grammar and enough speaking skill to get by on a trip to Russia.

For intermediate:If you’ve studied Russian before but want to try tackling it again, I can help you regain it and refresh your grammar by reading work originally written in Russian, such as short stories. I personally like Chekhov and children’s literature.

For advanced:I will correct your translations. You can practice writing natural translations. I can also help you prepare for a proficiency exam. A former student of mine passed the interpreter guide exam. I’m confident I will be able to assist you!
