Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.

As a native Japanese speaker, who has spent the last 30 years in the United States, I understand the structural and grammatical differences in the two languages. This gives me both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives, which I find valuable as a language instructor.

I have taught Japanese to college students and adults, using beginning and intermediate Japanese textbooks, and I am most comfortable teaching high school/college students and adults.
I can also teach conversational Japanese and/or customize the lesson to meet each student’s particular goals and needs.

❗️Cancellation, reschedule and late policy ❗️

1. Lesson cancellation and rescheduling must be requested at least 8 hours before the scheduled lesson starts. Without an 8-hour notice, you will be charged for the lesson, regardless of the reasons.

2. If you cannot attend your lessons for two or more consecutive weeks, your time slot may be given to another student. If you wish to resume lessons with me but your

Rie is a very friendly and patient teacher, but she is also very effective! She quickly assesses strengths and weaknesses and does a great job motivating you to continue developing your skill.
Ada D.
I started lessons with Rie in order to pass a college course placement test after missing the first semester of my school's Japanese program. Not only was I able to test into second semester Japanese with her guidance, I was also accepted into a rigorous study abroad program after less than a year of studying the language.
As someone who finds speaking another language rather frightening, I was very fortunate to find a teacher like Rie. Not only is she extremely patient, she tailors lessons and homework to the needs of her students. It only took me a few lessons for me to feel completely at ease while stumbling through grammar points and vocabulary.
I’ve had many different language teachers in the past, but Rie has definitely been my favorite. If you are looking to learn Japanese I highly recommend her teaching!
Lyla N.
Rie-san is a really great instructor, i've always felt a little awkward with online lessons but hers are really fun!

I am actually a speech therapist. With 20 years since graduation under my belt, I am a pretty experienced therapist. My experience includes hours upon hours of children and adults. My reason for going with Take Lessons is that there are some people who want to learn conversational Japanese but don't qualify for "therapy" per se, because they do not live in an environment where Japanese is regularly spoken.

I am a native speaker, and I am fluent in English. I received all of my professional training in English. Might I say I function well in both languages, speaking, reading and writing. My desired focus is accent modification, targeting intermediate and advanced non-native speakers to bring their speech closer to native speech.

I am from Yokohama area. My Japanese can reflect mild regional flavor, but generally smack within standard Japanese.

About Chie

With the recent surge in popularity with all things to do with Japan, speaking the language like a native is an enviable skill. Many an excellent teachers abound, but I think my unique set of skills may offer an edge to those who want to learn to sound closer to a native speaker. I am a certified Sp
