I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

Online Japanese Teacher

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 have lived in Japan for 6 years, and I can speak fluently not only in Japanese but also English, Mongolian, and Russian. In my personal experience learning languages is best by practicing a spoken language. Therefore, we will start off with practicing short and simple conversations. We will also develop the objectives and goals of our lessons, and discuss your preferences before setting up the lesson plans. This will allow us develop a personalized approach that suits you the best. I will do my best to help you achieve your goals.

About Demi

I am inventive, curious, and open minded. I always try to make sure that my students leave the sessions with not only understanding of the material, but also understanding how this information relates to the bigger picture (i.e., human health).

"Was very tolerant of the fact that I had zero knowledge of the language upon entry. He also doesn't waste time and is good about explaining words and their meanings. His snippets of knowledge about Japanese traditions and their relationship with certain words he drops added bonus insight to them that I really enjoyed! He is also very clear about what should be done to improve for the next lessons!"
