Private lessons at The Marlow Language Centre

Learn Japanese with a professional teacher here at the Marlow Language Centre on a one-to-one or one-to-two basis – the most efficient and flexible way to learn a language. A personalised learning experience for you tailored to your specific needs.


Flexible. Classes don’t have to be taken on a fixed day and time.

  • Non-intensive: 1 or 2 x weekly 60- or 90-minute classes
  • Intensive: 2 to 5 hours a day over a 1- to 4-week period

You can take private lessons as either one-to-one or one-to-two tutorials, should you have a partner or friend who’s also interested.


Take private lessons at times to suit you, Monday to Friday 07:30-20:00, Saturday 09:00-14:00. You can cancel and reschedule at 24 hours’ notice.


One-to-one and one-to-two Japanese courses are suitable for:

  • General Japanese, holiday Japanese
  • Business Japanese
  • Relocation to Japan


Why not get the ball rolling by booking an assessment which will enable you to:

  • Meet the teacher
  • Gain an understanding of your proficiency level
  • Plan your personal learning objectives

We can offer you a one-off 60-minute assessment at £40. If you then decide to take a course of lessons we ask you to commit to a six-hour block as a minimum, and we offer a discount on block bookings of 12 to 100 hours. Just call us to book a suitable day and time or fill in the contact form.

Hello. Konnichiwa. I am a Japanese native speaker and I love teaching Japanese. I was born in Hiroshima, Japan and have lived in the UK since 2006 and I have taught Japanese at The Marlow Language Centre since September 2019. I teach Japanese on a one-to-one basis as well as to small groups of students. I am thrilled to say that all of my students are so passionate about learning Japanese that they are a delight to teach and that’s why I love this job! I especially love teaching beginners, since learning a new language can sometimes change our lives for ever in a very exciting way! I love art, gardening, walking in the countryside, discovering nature. Come and join me and let’s enjoy language learning and Japanese culture together!
