My teaching method includes the use of textbook which I employed while teaching at Toronto Japanese Language School (textbook; GENKI at all levels). I prepare and work with my own worksheets with different topics for each lesson. Also, employing movies (ex.Studio Ghibri) and Anime are a crucial part of my teaching tactic since the visual learning is highly effective and even recommended by teaching experts.
For language learners, film can often convey a message better than printed or spoken words.
Depending on my student's preference and proficiency level, we can also have a relaxing chat over coffee which is a great way to improve one's speaking skill as well as her/his pronunciation.
Understanding and applying what a student needs into my lessons is the key to my student's acheivement and success, therefore, please feel free to make suggestions and requests so we can work on your goals together!!
My name is Tahmina! A little bit about my background... I am fluent in Japanese (my first language) since I spent 20 years of my life in Japan. I grew up in Japan and graduated from a Japanese school. Also, having English as my second language, students (English speakers) experience a greater progress because there is no barrier to effective and clear communication during our lessons, which is extremely important in learning a new language! I am able to give lessons both online and in-person. I have 5 years of professional teaching experience, providing group lessons and one-on-one lessons. Besides my private tutoring experiences, I was also hired as a Japanese teacher in a private school located in downtown Toronto. I had 12-15 students in my class, ranging in age from 12 to 24 years old.

Perfect! It was a great experience learning Japanese with Tahmina . She is a very patient and helpful instructor as she was very good with explaining me things that I was having trouble with in terms of understanding the language. I am very a happy to have her as my teacher.
Mehak is a very enthusiastic student who was interested in learning both Japanese and its cultural aspect. She is eager to improve her communication skill and willing to take 2-3 classes a week. I had a great time teaching her and I look forward to seeing her again.
I know Tahmina for almost 9 years, She raised in Japan and I learned Japanese language from Tahmina in Japan. She is the best and amazing teacher I’ve ever had.
I Strongly recommend her to learners.
Being a teacher isn’t easy you’re dedicated,patient and a good person so I just want to let you know that I appreciate all of the hard work that you have put in. Thank you so much ️
great teacher! She knows what she’s talking about and has a great way of delivering new material to students. She’s very passionate about teaching Japanese and is very helpful and approachable. Would definitely recommend her to Japanese learners.
She is dedicated and delivers a massive quality better than any other teacher. I've wasted my money prior to this and after many failure attempts to learn Japanese, I've managed to learn hiragana and katakana in less than a week along with so many lessons and still having her as my teacher. if you're reading this and having a second thought just take my word and choose her, you will not regret this I guarantee it. Excellent quality, reasonable price, highly knowledgeable and a very fun teacher.
I've had many tutors for my son and Tahmina has to be the best of the best! She is so caring, thoughtful, patient and extremely knowledgable. My son was so much more eager to learn Japanese thanks to Tahmina. I highly recommend her!
Shes an exceptional leader and engages well with her fellow colleagues and students !
Tahmina is the most amazing and patient teacher ever. She makes sure that you know the basics before moving onto next lessons. My speaking and writing in Japanese has gotten so well since studying with her. She values Japanese culture and tradition so much and helps you to understand it all. 10/10 would recommend!
