Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...

Hello! How is your learning going so far?

Since you are looking at my page, I’m guessing that you are looking for a teacher who can help you! If you are trying to learn how to speak Japanese, it's your lucky day!



In my lesson, we will be talking a lot!


Are you a shy person or a beginner? Don't worry! I will help you!


I believe that talking is the most effective and fastest way to learn a new language.
When I was in school, I was so bad at studying, but when I put myself in another country and forced myself only to speak English and not make any Japanese friends, my English skills improved in such a short amount of time.


I would like to use my effective learning experience to teach here.



Kids don't learn their native language by studying; they learn naturally by listening and speaking.


So we will be talking lots during our lessons. Of course, I do not expect you to speak perfect Japanese! I know that you will make lots of mistakes; we will have a safe learning ...

I 100% recommend a chiaki as an instructor, she is great and makes learning Japanese fun,
Alexis
I am studying Japanese with Chiaki for more than 2 years on an other platform. So, when she told me that she decide to move here, I naturally supported her. Her class are fun. I am currently a very hard student but she never give up on me. She just adapted to give me the most interesting class. I nearly want to say that you shouldn't take her class because that makes my life harder to find a lesson time with her.
Troy
I've been taking lessons with Chiaki for over a year and it has been a lot of fun. There is a lot of talking in her lessons which makes it more interesting and easier to remember compared to reading from a textbook.

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.

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 and intermediate 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.

❗️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

Learning Japanese? As being a composer for short Anime films and having a Japanese background, I have worked with Japanese companies for many years and trained employees of different companies in not only speaking Japanese but also the business culture. But that is not all my classes are for everybody for those planning a trip to Japan. What's special of my classes is that we learn to have a conversation for different situations every week. You will start talking after your first class! CHECK OUT MY VIDEOS HERE ON TL FOR JAPANESE TIPS!
