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 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.

Send me a message to find out if we are a good match!

It's first time for me that I teach somebody Japanese as a teacher. I've taught a lot of my foreign friends Japanese by taking about culture, travel tips and food. What I will do in my class would be having a daily conversation with me. How I studied English was I always asked questions like "what does this mean?" "how do you say this in English?" so in my classes ASK me questions about Japanese! I think it's the quickest way to learn languages :)

My daughter loved her lesson with Yuna. My daughter is just beginning to learn Japanese and had taken a few lessons elsewhere. She felt very comfortable with Yuna who was very knowledgeable, personable, professional and kind. Yuna made the learning experience a lot of fun for my daughter and look forward very much to their next session. An absolutely wonderful tutor.

"My reading comprehension on par with where we are on lessons, but my struggle is listening comprehension. I am listening and repeating playback of workbook audio files over and over trying to get it. They speak so fast for beginner like me. Jihye not only helped me with this on her own time, but on our next lesson she made a change. We did the textbook lesson as planned but she reserved a small portion of our time to dictating workbook narrative at a pace I could keep up with. Noted difference on the first go. I am grateful and know I will only get better!! Thank you."

"Pablo is an amazing instructor. In my experiences with him, he is patient, friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and pleasant. He changed the schedule at my request at least 8 times before I found a date and time that would work. . . Pablo will work with whatever is best for the student and wants those he teaches to succeed. Before my first lesson, he contacted me to find out where the best starting point would be for me and tailored my first Spanish lesson to meet the appropriate level. Pablo is a natural at teaching people and I am grateful to be learning from him."
