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.

First lesson with Mr Park was really good. I have never used an online tutor before so I didn’t know what to expect. He did very well in assessing my current level and pushing thru material. Even limited self study he still covered things that I didn’t know that was pertinent to the language and I appreciate the way he explains things. The language is not a 1-1 and Mr Park did well in explaining how it converts over.

He has a great technique for teaching a beginner like me. I enjoyed his pace and style. He was also patient as I am beginner. His technique is unique and something I feel comfortable with.

Thanks so much for Toshi in this quarantine time training. Toshi is a very strict teacher and mentor. And thank you for being an inspiration for my Japanese journey. You taught me how to strive for perfect pronunciation and precise in Japanese speaking skills, giving 200% when I’m studying/training and push my self over the limit. You taught me how to think smart and better, confidence for my Japanese. You totally changed my negativity. I will keep training as hard as my brain allows me to do so. Thanks โค๏ธ

"With Masshy as my tutor, I practiced writing and speaking Japanese within the space of one month and a half. I’m one of those people who feel more confident writing than speaking, especially in a language as different from English as Japanese, but Masshy was eagerly helpful, supportive, polite, patient and kind (the list could go on), and we had fun during our casual conversations, conversation games (‘The three-second game’ particularly stood out to me due to all the fun and excitement of getting to its end with as many questions as possible answered in less than three seconds), and even made up a story together. Feel free to ask him any questions, be straightforward about your needs, and he’ll cater to them to the best of his abilities!

When you're taking Japanese lessons, you will be introduced to various Japanese writing systems. Here, Winston-Salem, NC teacher Willy M. explains how learning Japanese calligraphy can help you understand the Japanese alphabet...  The Japanese alphabet, or writing systems, are very different from our alphabet in English.
