Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

I recently returned from spending 2 years in Japan. My current level is JLPT N4.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin

I am a native Japanese & Chinese speaker and a resident in the United States. I am trilingual in Japanese, Chinese and English for written and verbal, so I could teach all three of the languages! I have been in the United States for 8 years with fluent English level, so communication will not be a problem with me:) I graduated from Pepperdine University as an International Business Major, and I have a year of tutoring experience at the non-profit organization. I am an outgoing and friendly person, so I will make my class unique with a friendly atmosphere! Please send me a message with your language level if you are interested in my lesson!

You will learn how to speak (and write if you are interested!) Japanese while you also learn about the culture and traveling tips. Lessons can be customized and catered to your needs and goals but mainly we can focus on having conversations and learning correct pronunciations while gaining useful words and phrases. I’m a native speaker but I have been living in the US for more than 20 years. As far as my teaching background goes, I was a teacher for Saturday Japanese School total of 10 years in the past and I also did tutoring while I attended my university. From my personal language learning experience, (I learned to speak Spanish also!) I can share my tricks on learning language faster and retaining it. Let’s get started!

Hi! I am a native Japanese speaker and I have over 15 years of teaching experience. I speak English fluently so I know some difficulty for some non-Japanese speakers but I can help on pronunciation, mannerism, etc. If you are looking for a native speaker to converse and polish your speaking skil

We can focus on all four skills; speaking, listening, reading, and writing, but if a student would like to focus on only speaking, we can certainly do that as well. We also talk about cultural aspects of Japan and cover the vocabularies related to the cultural aspects.

About Emi

Hello, my name is Emi. I was born in Nagano prefecture and raised in Saitama prefecture. After graduating from college in Tokyo, I moved to the U.S. and have been teaching Japanese at public middle schools as well as colleges for almost 30 years. My hobbies are practicing musical instruments and

Sensei seems to really enjoy teaching. As both a native speaker and a longtime resident of the US, she is able to bridge the cultures in a way that many instructors would not be able to. I have been studying with her for over six months - both in a private and college setting - and I feel that I would be hard pressed to find a better teacher. In a college setting, she is very strict and covers a lot of material in a short period of time, and those who take her courses must be prepared to expend significant time and energy for success, but those who can keep up are well equipped to continue their studies with pretty much any other teacher or course.
Chris
Sensei Emi was patient, kind, and very thorough with her teaching. I started from knowing absolutely nothing about Japanese language or culture and now, having completed just 5 hours of lessons with her, I feel I have a solid foundation to build upon. Within our 5 hours we covered numbers, greetings, and almost all of the 46 basic hiragana. She was born and raised in Japan so it was lovely hearing about the culture and society from stories she lived through first hand. As I continue my education in Japanese I hope to return to her and continue to learn more. I highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone learning Japanese at any level.
Anderson
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.

Learn Japanese Through Music: 7 Fun Songs to Sing at Karaoke

Karaoke is a fun activity in any language, but believe it or not, singing karaoke is also a great way to improve your Japanese-language skills. Karaoke, as we know it, actually started in Kobe City, Japan. The word 'karaoke' is a combination of the words kara (from karappo, which means 'empty') and oke (from okesutura, which means 'orchestra'). You may not have realized that you can learn Japanese through music, but karaoke is one of the best ways to practice vocabulary and …
