Private Japanese Teacher

I am a Japanese trainer with extensive knowledge in teaching Japanese as a second/third language.

I work closely with my students to identify their goals and objectives and develop tailored lessons for a more effective learning experience.

I believe that you will absorb more effectively when you enjoy learning and you are encouraged to learn!

I teach basic through advanced Japanese.
• Speaking, listening, reading, writing, Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji
• Conversational Japanese: casual/polite/formal
• Real-life applications to Japanese life and culture
• Nuance in Japanese
• Japanese way of thinking, trends, custom, traditional and contemporary Japanese culture

I highly recommend Wakana-san. I have been taking lessons with her for 3 years. I was a complete beginner and the only exposure I had to Japanese prior to that was from Japanese anime. I am glad that Wakana-san has been very patient with me and putting up with my interests in animation. Her lessons have allowed me to understand the differences between the words and structure used in real life vs. those used in animation. Her ability in explaining the grammar and structure to me has definitely worked much better than any textbooks I have read.

My first trip to Japan last year was enjoyable, thanks to the lessons I have had with Wakana-san. I was able to get around Tokyo without much communication issues.

My goal is to be able to speak and listen to Japanese in a business setting and will continue to have Wakana-san help me reaching this goal.

Arigatou gozaimasu!

Wakana has been working with our daughter since she was high school. She wanted to study abroad in Japan and needed to pass exams and interviews.
Wakana made an enormous difference and our daughter was not only learning quickly but showing marked improvement in her progress. She got great grades and receiving strong, positive feedback from her teachers. Wakana formed a wonderful working relationship with her. I cannot recommend Wakana highly enough!

Wakana is an incredibly gifted teacher!
I have been studying Japanese with her for almost ten years. She is bright, warm, flexible, and she has a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone interested in learning the language would be lucky to have her as a teacher!

Private Japanese Teacher

I am a private tutor of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 7 to middle-age. I love to be a witness when my students suddenly "get" something new we've been working on for a while. Japanese is a fascinating, beautiful, and complicated language, and it's exciting to be a partner in my students' achievements and success!

I have a lot of experience teaching middle school and high school age students--including my own kids, whom I homeschool. My first visit to Japan was a semester study abroad in my senior year of high school, and I've lived there off and on since then. My students receive the benefit of my life experiences there, including preparation for the realities of daily life in Japan--from how to use the public transit, to what to do during a natural disaster.

Along with my on-the-ground experience working in Japan as a translator/interpreter in a fast-paced, high-stakes environment, I hold an M.A. in Japanese and N1 (highest level) certification on the Japanese ...

My 12 year old lived her first lesson with Clare! She had been learning on her own a bit and was happy to hear she was learning pretty well. Clare communicated with me very quickly after the lesson to let me know what they had done and how it went as well as what to expect going forward. Excited to see what the next lessons bring!

I was born and raised in Japan. Learning second language is sometimes frustrating. I will explain Japanese with cultural background so you can understand better. I have taught from 5 years old to college students. I can do both teaching and toutering. Any age is welcome!!!

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.
Jessica
Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.
Marcellin
My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.

"Learning a new language on my own was tough and daunting, but after several lessons with Miku, I finally got the guidance I needed! I went from knowing basically nothing to finally building a basic foundation in Japanese reading, writing, and speaking! And I’m getting better with every lesson! She definitely lets me keep it at my own pace and helps to keep me engaged by answering all my curiosities about the culture as well. I hope to continue to take lessons with Miku even after my foundation has been built. There’s just so much to learn and her lessons make it easier to take in Japanese and help me to fully understand all the details. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS INSTRUCTOR!!!"

Japanese Romaji Charts: Japanese Alphabet & Syllables (in English)

When learning Japanese you're introduced to several writing systems, including hiragana, katakana, kanji, and finally - romaji. Romaji simply means "Roman characters." You will typically use romaji when you type out Japanese sentences using a keyboard. "Romaji is the representation of Japanese sounds using the western, 26-letter alphabet," says Donald Ash, creator of TheJapanGuy.com. "Romaji puts Japanese into a format that most Westerners can read and understand." Although romaji i …
