When I went to Japan, I had very little Japanese experience and when I returned, I really wanted to learn more. 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. He is a wonderful teacher who wants the best for you, is extremely accomodating to your needs, and very welcoming. If you are susceptible, please give Oyamada-sensei a try, I am sure he will not disappoint.
Kelby Martin
I was introduced to Oyamada-sensei through a friend of mine who also had attended his lessons for a long while. Oyamada-Sensei is great. He always comes to lessons with high energy and we end up talking about film, anime, and games for a few minutes all the time, it seems.

I work 40 hours a week and often have to do lessons late at night. Oyamada-sensei has not only been flexible, but very patient with me given my schedule and available time for study. He's always met me halfway and never been judgemental; something I deeply appreciate.

If you're looking to learn 日本語 as a beginner (like me) or if you want to sharpen your skills, Sensei has you covered!

Yoshifumi is a great teacher. He's very nice and easy to relate to. My daughter is learning a lot.

My japanese level is intermediate, but I have difficulty listening and speaking. I was too nervous trying not to mess up or not to sound rude. She made it possible for me to carry on conversation without being awkward. She is engaging and her teaching method is effective. I would recommend her 100%.
Perry
She has a great grasp of Japanese culture and teaches relevant and important words and phrases to assist with learning Japanese and its culture. She understands all aspects of language and grammar, as well as cultural insights. She is fun to listen to and enthusiastic. I would recommend her 100%.
Justin
Wakana is very encouraging and fun to learn with. Practicing Japanese with her is actually the best part of my week because I love learning Japanese and she is truly an amazing teacher and amazing person to be around. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a Japanese instructor.

I was born and raised in Japan, so I am fluent in Japanese, but at the same time I can speak well English since I have been learning English for more than 10 years and my father is from the U.S. So we can communicate smoothly and you will not be bored or frustrated either. I have been tutoring Japanese and ESL at my university for several years so I have knowledge of tutoring as well. I will teach in an enjoyable way! Let's have a fun and learn Japanese!

O genki desu ka?
Hi, I'm Richard, and I can teach you simple Japanese. I graduated from BYU in Japanese and lived as an LDS Missionary in Tokyo for two years in 2003-2005. I love teaching everything that I know in a simple, understandable way. So I can help you learn the basics faster than you would normally. I know what it's like learning in school where you seem to take forever, and don't get very good. I also know what it's like talking to many people in Japan, and learning very quickly, and knowing the difference. I want to help you learn as efficiently and as quickly as possible. I also have a one hour presentation of the basics of Japanese grammar, that basically covers like the first 2 years of college Japanese classes! No joke, it's a powerpoint presentation I've put together that will really give you the "big picture" with the backwards grammar that we try to understand. Ask me any question, and I'll do my best to help you out! Mata ne!

About Richard

I enjoy the feedback because it not only highlights what I can improve on, but it also shows there are concepts I'm actually retaining. Learning Japanese feels natural with her! ありがとうございます!"

Since I live in Japan our schedules are very different, but we've been able to make it work nonetheless. She always has lesson plans put together and sends you the PDF's before each lesson. If you are curious about things not in the lesson plan, she's always happy to explore that with you as well. Most importantly, she makes you feel comfortable while you are trying to read and speak Japanese. Thank you, Hikaru!"

Japanese Grammar for Beginners: Learn to Conjugate Japanese Verbs

If you're learning Japanese, here's some good news: Conjugating Japanese verbs is much easier than you think! Here, Ann Arbor, MI teacher Elaina R. shares some simple tips to help you conjugate Japanese verbs... I love conjugating Japanese verbs. Why? In most romance languages, conjugations are based on tons of factors, including subject, number, and even gender. For example, in Italian, "I am tired" is Io sono stanca; but if you are male, it's Io sono stanco. If there are sever …
