Hi My name is Seiko. I am an experienced Japanese tutor teaching locally in Silicon vally/Bay area, CA. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learning the language but also strengthening your communication skills in understanding of its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience of reviewing and proofreading resume and essays as well as AP/JLPT test preparations.

I enjoy teaching Japanese and want to make fun lessons with you! I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. I earned a college degree in Japan with a secondary teaching credential as well as a BS degree in the US. Prior to my tutoring career, I worked at global corporations in Japan

Seiko-San was very cooperative and encouraging during my first online lesson. I believe it was her first time teaching online and she did well. I am really happy today with my experience, she gave me some nice compliments. I look forward to the next lesson.

Seiko walks with me every lesson through the "Japanese for busy people" book and I like how she asks me to go through exercises in japanese so I can get used to listening. We also spend time enriching vocabulary.

Online Japanese Teacher

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.
Martha
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 will not only be able to give you guidance on your conversation skills, but also about the mannerisms and cultural background of the language.

Jinko-Sensei is a fantastic teacher! I took her lessons for about two years and in that time I was able to pass JLPT N3. Each lesson is personalized and I learned many new vocabulary, kanji and grammar, in a fun way. I particularly appreciated that as my level increased she spoke to me in almost only Japanese so that I could practice listening and conversing, which was my weakest spot. She is professional, organized and enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend you take her lessons!

Jinko Sensei,

Thank you for today's Lesson with the emphasis on Japanese-style phrasing. I truly appreciate all of you efforts to prepare me to live in Japan.

Jinko Sensei,

Thank you for your time and patience. Much of the what we covered today can be used in many different situations where I need to be able to express my thoughts and ideas in Japanese.

I look forward to our next class.
