Hi, My name is Seiko. I am an experienced Japanese tutor teaching online nationwide as well as in-person locally in CA. I provide individually tailored lessons 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 learn the language but also strengthen your communication skills in understanding its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience in reviewing and proofreading resumes and essays as well as JLPT test preparations.

Maximize your Japanese learning with a native speaker with years of teaching experience! I tailor my lessons to each student's learning style, her/his needs and goals. I use Genki 1 and 2 textbooks and workbooks with most of my beginner to intermediate level students, unless other textbooks and/or learning resources are requested. During the lesson, my focus is generally on the grammar explanations and practice, as well as reading, and speaking practice. Homework is assigned after each lesson, and students are expected to work independently on vocabulary building, unless otherwise requested. I encourage all of my students to contact me between lessons if they have any questions, and I will try to answer them within 24 hours. I am currently accepting students ages 16 and up. I am looking forward to meeting you! ❗️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 original time slot has been filled, please contact me. 3. If you realize you will be late for your lesson, please contact me as soon as possible by text or email. I will wait until you log in, but I cannot extend the duration of your lesson. No refund will be given for the time you missed. Please remember that by signing up for lessons with me, you will be agreeing to all of the above.

During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!
