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.

Aimi is so great! My 8 year old (who hates reading) ended his first lesson and said, "Mom! You can't take me out of this class!" Aimi is so helpful and easygoing. I can't wait to see what she'll teach him!

Amy is so great! My daughter looks forward to her lesson every week!
Darlene D.
We just signed up for additional lessons with Aimi. My granddaughter was reluctant to take online lessons. Aimi's teaching style and personality were the winning ticket. She is enthusiastic, her lessons are well organized, and she couldn't be nicer. Nicole looks forward to her lessons with Aimi, and we're so grateful and happy to have chosen her. Thank you!

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!
Sandi T.
My daughter is absolutely LOVING her lessons with Yuriko. We travel often and it is wonderful that my daughter is able to continue her lessons, where ever we are.

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.

Maybe I'm a bit like you. I was interested in Japanese as a high school student, but had no one to explain it to me. I studied the langage in college, lived in Japan for several years, and now teach the language at the high school level. I also work as a translator on the side. I have a 95% JLPT N1 pass (advanced ability) and am certified to teach Japanese in high school.

About Matthew

I have been a high school and college English and Japanese instructor for 15 years! I'm not the prettiest teacher in the world, but I am patient and I like to get work done!

"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."
