I am a Japanese trainer with extensive knowledge in teaching Japanese as a second/third language.

I work closely with my students to identify their goals and objectives and develop tailored lessons for a more effective learning experience.

I teach basic through advanced Japanese.

• Real-life applications to Japanese life and culture
• Nuance in Japanese
• Japanese way of thinking, trends, custom, traditional and contemporary Japanese culture

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. Learning second language is sometimes frustrating. I will explain Japanese with cultural background so you can understand better. I have taught from 5 years old to college students. I can do both teaching and toutering. Any age is welcome!!!

About Yuko

I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more. As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.
Jessica
Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.
Marcellin
My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.

Since I had been an exchange student in the US, I had been into learning Japanese culture. This experience made me go to the oldest university in Japan called Ryukoju univ, Kyoto. Kyoto is beautiful. I was always strolling around after school by walk from my home.

If you want to learn the Japanese language with a vibrant and colorful background of Japanese culture, ask me at any time. Let's enjoy discovering the mystery of a different culture!

About Masahito

Hello people!! My name is Masshi! I am very excited that you want to learn Japanese. Learning is fun. And let's unlock the gimmick of learning! It is my passion to teach. I sometimes become a ski instructor during the winter time. The students are 3-18 years old. I love it. Full of green

Great teacher! Very personable! Highly recommend 😊

With Masshy as my tutor, I practiced writing and speaking Japanese within the space of one month and a half. I’m one of those people who feel more confident writing than speaking, especially in a language as different from English as Japanese, but Masshy was eagerly helpful, supportive, polite, patient and kind (the list could go on), and we had fun during our casual conversations, conversation games (‘The three-second game’ particularly stood out to me due to all the fun and excitement of getting to its end with as many questions as possible answered in less than three seconds), and even made up a story together. Feel free to ask him any questions, be straightforward about your needs, and he’ll cater to them to the best of his abilities!
素晴らしい先生で、人柄もよく、話しやすいです。あなたたちはぜひまた受講したいです!

Hi, I'm Chieko. I'm Japanese and living in California but go back and forth between here and Tokyo. So I know the trend of Japan well. Furthermore, I have long working experience as manager in some major international companies in Japan. So I can help you communicate with Japanese workers using natural and effective language. I know the business custom is very different between countries and Japan's one is a little complicated.. So, if you'd like to get along with Japanese, please ask me what to do in a situation you encounter.
I have successfully passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in October 2016.

Online Japanese Teacher

Hi, I first taught Japanese to my friends at college in 2002 and I’ve always enjoyed teaching and interacting with students even though I didn’t expect it to become my career then. I have taught adults including senior citizens, college, high school and middle school students, and young children. Teaching Japanese to American military personnel and spouses who were stationed in Japan was the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. They truly needed the language skills to live in Japan, and they really appreciated that they were able to learn survival Japanese that’s instantly useful out in town.

I grew up in Japan and came to US to go to college. When I was a college student, I taught Japanese and English to middle and high school students during summer back in Japan. I have a Master of Education in TESL. I teach all levels including those who are starting out and also want to improve their fluency and understand the culture and history too!
I’m looking forward to working with ...
