All Wasabi tutors are either certified teachers of Japanese as a foreign language or have been trained as volunteer tutors. Before joining Wasabi they have gained experience as teachers in language schools, universities, volunteer programs and as private tutors. Their backgrounds are diverse and many of them have lived abroad or worked corporate jobs before they discovered their passion for teaching.

The English level of our tutors varies. If you prefer a tutor who speaks English, please let us know before booking your lessons.
