I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

Hi, I first taught Japanese to my friends at college in 2002 and I’ve always enjoyed teaching and interacting with students even though I didn’t expect it to become my career then. I have taught adults including senior citizens, college, high school and middle school students, and young children. Teaching Japanese to American military personnel and spouses who were stationed in Japan was the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. They truly needed the language skills to live in Japan, and they really appreciated that they were able to learn survival Japanese that’s instantly useful out in town.

I grew up in Japan and came to US to go to college. When I was a college student, I taught Japanese and English to middle and high school students during summer back in Japan. I have a Master of Education in TESL. I teach all levels including those who are starting out and also want to improve their fluency and understand the culture and history too!
I’m looking forward to working with ...

My lessons are full of originality and are designed to match your level and meet your goals and range from beginning to advanced levels.
For beginning students, I focus on teaching grammar first and using that grammar to practice making short sentences. For the middle and advanced levels students, we will work together to strengthen your vocabulary, listening and reading skills. Also, students write composition homework every time, and we correct mistakes together in the next lesson. Advanced level students discuss one or two news articles or themes that you decide and the classes are held in Japanese only.

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

I can be anything from a conversation partner, to a study buddy. I can help with total beginners trying to get the hang of hiragana and katakana, to students memorizing kanji. I am familiar with several levels of formality, so I can provide lessons on casual speech or formal speech.

I also am very familiar with Japan itself, and the culture. So if you're planning a trip or studying abroad, I can help you figure everything out.

"I am a student from the Last year I wanted a native speaking Japanese tutor also an older guy who has more experience.
Sensei Yoshi is amazing. It seems that with every class, he shares yet another "goodie" from his treasure chest of Japanese language and culture learning tools, study aids, games, approaches to learning, mastery drills, etc.
Thanks Sensei Yoshi!"
