Sensei O. has been a very good Japanese instructor for the past several months for me. He is very patient and understanding and does an amazing job at making the language very fun to learn. Since learning under Sensei O. I went from knowing very little Japanese to being able to read Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Thank you for being such an amazing teacher Sensei!

Sensei Yoshi is a great Japanese teacher as well as a nice person to talk to. My 13 yr old boy learned a lot from him and I can see and hear that he focuses fully from the beginning to the end of the virtual lesson. Highly recommended.

Yoshi is a great instructor. Our 12 year old daughter is very into anime and wanted to learn Japanese. She was not prepared for the amount time this would take to learn. Yoshi was patient with her and she very much enjoyed the lesson that included her writing the names of her favorite anime characters.

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 ...

Learn to speak and read Japanese, have fun, and get to speak with a native Japanese speaker who only recently moved to the US.

I was born and raised in Hiroshima prefecture, Japan. I have a long history of teaching English to Japanese students at the Junior and High School levels, and use my skills now to teach English speakers about Japanese language.

About Yae

Mrs Yae isn't only an extremely careful, thoughtful and well prepared instructor, she is also able to offer an insight into the culture which helps a lot when learning a language that isn't commonly used in this part of the world. As an ESL instructor myself, I appreciate Mrs Yae's techniques when it comes to explaining some of the most complicated aspects of the language, I highly recommend her services.

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 ...
