I'm a first generation half-Japanese American currently living in Boston, MA! I spent my childhood surrounded by Japanese language and culture, followed by 7 years of formal language training, culminating in a Japanese language minor at the University of Washington. My thesis focused on the manifestation of gender in Japanese performing arts.

Growing up bilingual, I understand the difficulty of trying to juggle two languages! Whether you want to learn a new language, or simply want to brush up on your Japanese skills, I am always happy to be of help! Lessons include reading, writing, listening, translating literature, and speaking (polite, casual, and formal styles). I use the Genki and Tobira books and also like to introduce students to classic and modern Japanese literature as a way to enhance the students’ cultural knowledge. I welcome beginning and intermediate Japanese students!

I am a native speaker and former school teacher in Japan. Learning is fun-that's my motto. When you achieve your goals, you enjoy a feeling of accomplishment, right? I want to help you to achieve your goals. My lesson starts from finding what students really need to learn. Understanding student is the key to success. I am very strong in teaching proper Japanese, including reading and writing Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji with fun way. Also, casual, informal, practical Japanese too.

Jinko has been teaching our child for some years now and we think she is a wonderful teacher. Jinko is particular, encouraging, helpful and dedicated. External examiners have noted the excellent progress of our child, in particular, their pronunciation of Japanese. Sincerely, Jinko comes highly recommended from us!
Elise
Love that Sensei Jinko is patient, yet rigorous. We've learned so much in just two lessons already because she focuses on the language, correct pronunciation, and encourages integration and practice through daily use.

Toshi is a great teacher that not only teaches regular Japanese, but about Japanese cultures and things you may not know or find in textbooks. Out of any of the Japanese teachers, I recommend him.

This review is an update from our last review 2 years ago...

2.5 years ago we were fortunate enough to find Toshi to teach our son Japanese. Our son started out as a high school student wanting to understand anime and his video games in their original language. Our son is legally blind so a talented and creative teacher was needed. Since then he has enjoyed learning the language with Toshi so much that he has formed professional goals to become a translator. Our son is now heading to university in the fall and will be majoring in Japanese Studies. The program includes a semester abroad in Japan and an internship with a major Japanese corporation. His goal is long term so he will continue to work with Toshi alongside his college studies to reach his goals. Toshi has always taken our son seriously and has adjusted his teaching program as his goals expanded. Toshi’s lessons are still a highlight of the week and it continuously surprises us to hear our son speak the language so beautifully. Our long term investment of lessons with Toshi has been very successful and such a positive experience. We highly recommend Toshi!

I am a private tutor of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 12 to middle-age. I love to be a witness when my students suddenly "get" something new we've been working on for a while. Japanese is a fascinating, beautiful, and complicated language, and it's exciting to be a partner in my students' achievements and success! Your lessons will be tailored to your needs and goals - if you are a complete beginner, I will recommend a workbook based on your age (adult, high school, or middle school), and as we get to know each other better, you'll get targeted assistance with your weak points. Prepare to do some assigned homework every week, and to be studying vocabulary and writing daily.

Oyamada-sensei has helped me learn more than I could have ever known in the short period of time I've been learning from him.
