I am a Japanese native speaker who has a deep interest in helping students learn Japanese and learn how to be successful in Japanese society. I lived in Japan until this past year and worked as a civil servant for seven years. During that time, I helped JET Program workers from America learn how to talk with their bosses and co-workers. This means I can help you learn smooth business Japanese as well as more casual language. In Japan and in the US, I frequently advise LGBTQ students and students of color about Japanese culture and how to adjust to Japanese society. Both Japanese language and culture can be tough--but I will work with you to help you succeed and achieve your goals!

My favorite aspect of tutoring is tailoring my lessons to YOUR needs and desires. If you would like anime, but need more speaking practice, I can come up with role-play situations that will allow you to talk about your interests. If you like Japanese culture and want to read more high-level texts, we can ...

Aki has earned my highest recommendation. She provides weekly Japanese language and culture online tutoring to my 14-year-old son. She engages him fully, providing a rich multi-media experience utilizing video chat and whiteboarding effectively to simultaneously teach the spoken and written language (Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji). He is excited at the prospect of each new lesson and is learning quickly.

Aki is the best Japanese teacher that I have ever had! Aki plans lessons that exactly match the things I need to learn, so it is very efficient for me. She is especially good at explaining difficult grammar points in a very clear manner. She has really helped me improve in reading, writing and speaking. I am very grateful to her and strongly recommend her to other students.

I am an open minded, friendly, multicultural experienced tutor of Japanese languages.
I can personalize lessons at your request from using basic GENKI textbook or Japanese for busy people to free conversation upon your advance request. Please let me know what your purpose and goal. I will do my best to help you to achieve your goal. (Hopefully with a lot of fun.)
I can also teach you Japanese culture such as Origami, cooking and calligraphy. I love Japanese history and would like to share richness of Japanese culture.

Very informative, iv been taking Toshi’s one on one classes along with a college class and I usually learn more from one class than I do from 2 of my 2 hour college classes. Toshi is also very supportive and will make sure that you can reach the level of Japanese fluency that you want at the space that you are comfortable. γ‚γ‚ŠγŒγ¨γ”γ–γ„γΎγ™γ€γ¨γ—ε…ˆη”Ÿ

I am writing this from my moms phone so I thought I should elaborate that I am a 15 year old student, but I absolutely love my lessons with Toshi-san. He is hilarious and makes lessons extremely fun and makes it a lot easier to retain information. It is very hard for me to remember things and be invested due to my ADHD but he never fails to keep my attention. I definitely recommend him for everyone! I think anyone who wants to learn proper Japanese and etiquette should have lessons with him.
Alexis
So cool and personable, and you can tell he genuinely cares and knows what he is talking about. The best possible first lesson I could have asked for. I loved it! So looking forward to see how this goes!!!

Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...

As a native Japanese speaker, who has spent the last 30 years in the United States, I understand the structural and grammatical differences in the two languages. This gives me both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives, which I find valuable as a language instructor.

I have taught Japanese to college students and adults, using beginning Japanese textbooks, and I am most comfortable teaching high school/college students and adults.
I can also teach conversational Japanese and/or customize the lesson to meet each student’s particular goals and needs.

Send me a message to find out if we are a good match!

Takashima sensei is a very kind instructor who is very approachable. She allows contact outside of meetings for questions in a rather friendly atmosphere so you won't feel silly for asking questions. It makes for a comfortable learning environment where it's OK to make mistakes, but you will come out of it knowing more than you did before.

Since she is a native speaker, she is perfect for practicing speaking with someone out in the real world.

Rie is an amazing teacher! Today was my first lesson and I have already learned so much from her. I am excited for our future lessons! :)

He wrote everything, clearly, so I could study later and made sure I understood the meaning behind the words and the reasons those phrases were used, in what context and to whom.

"Emi is the second private tutor that my company has had and she by far has been the best, hands-down. She is professional and experienced but she is also flexible with scheduling which is a necessity for business professionals who travel quite a bit for work.
The homework is not strenuous but is focused and important for success in her lessons. She also teaches at a nice pace but also is willing to work with you if you feel that you are falling behind. You can absolutely tell that Emi cares about her students and their progression with the language no matter their age and experience."
