Private Japanese Teacher

Experienced JAPANESE teacher since 2007, available for students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while building a strong foundation to further develop proficiency in Japanese. Each class is custom made to your own level and needs.

Text book used: Genki, Minnano Nihongo, Japanese for busy people, JLPT preparation books, or your own text book.

Classes are taught online primarily using SKYPE.

About Yuriko

Hi, Kon nichi wa. Genki?
Hajime mashite, watashino namae wa Yuriko desu.

I was born and raised in Japan. I can teach from beginner to intermediate in Japanese. I have many hours of experience teaching Japanese to any ages, kids to adults, private, group or home-schooling -- whoever wants to learn Japanese (writing, reading, conversation, romaji, hiragana, katakana kanji and JLPT (all level)).
I have a teaching certificate issued by Japanese Ministry of Education which qualifies me to teach 7th -12th grade classes.

I recently relocated from LA to Honolulu, Hawaii so "SKYPE" is the key word, very useful and love it.

Just let me know what time so we can meet.
Let's have fun!

Yoroshiku:)

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

Hi, I'm Chieko. I'm Japanese and living in California but go back and forth between here and Tokyo. So I know the trend of Japan well. Furthermore, I have long working experience as manager in some major international companies in Japan. So I can help you communicate with Japanese workers using natural and effective language. I know the business custom is very different between countries and Japan's one is a little complicated.. So, if you'd like to get along with Japanese, please ask me what to do in a situation you encounter.
I have successfully passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in October 2016.

About Chieko

I am a native Japanese speaker. I'm now living in the USA but also in Japan and go back and forth here and Tokyo. So I know the Japanese trend well from comics to businesses.
I have long working experience as engineering manager at some major international companies in japan. I know it is difficult for you to communicate with Japanese workers because there are a lot of business custom differences between Japan and other countries. If you feel something wrong in your communication with Japanese, please let me know it. I believe I can give you some tips on each specific situation.
I have the teaching credential of general science for middle and high school students certified by the Japanese University and I have successfully passed the Japanese language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign

Language in Oct 2016.
Regarding the textbooks, I will adjust the textbooks and materials used in my lessons according to the student's level, requirements and goals. I have many textbooks and workbooks for the Japanese language learners which I bought in Japan recently. They include textbooks for the Japanese language proficiency Test (JLPT) N1 -N5.

Chieko-san is a very effective and very kind teacher. Whenever I was stuck and giving a wrong answer, she could help me out of the misconception or forgetfulness that I had stumbled into, in a very positive way. This means as a student you can keep moving forward at your own pace, make progress, and avoid feeling discouraged. We each must keep trying our best, as we have learned to say, ganbarimasu !

Chieko was sweet, patient, and organized. I felt very comfortable asking questions ranging from definitions to pronunciations to cultural implications. The first lesson focused on assessing my level, so I think it will only get better going forward.

Hey guys !! Whether you are a lover of Anime, Jpop or need to know Japanese for business or just to show your friends , you have reached the right person !! :) I have 15 years of experience when it comes to the Japanese Language. And I absolutely love it !! I can proudly say that I am proficient in the language. I can speak fluently , understand and write fluently in Furigana (Hiragana and Katakana) I've learned from courses, friends, programs, music, immersion, books etc, you name it I've done it and has had major success. I will teach in a fun and interactive way and we will build up from the fundamentals of words to complete sentences. You WILL be proficient and comfortable in Japanese in no time !

About Anthony

I have 12 years experience in teaching Japanese as a tutor. I also am a Native if English and now added ESL as a subject to teach, so any one interested in the English Language is welcome ! Occupation wise I am a Electrical Engineer Major, Entrepreneur, Author, Motivational Coach and Language Enthusiast. I am a firm believer that we really can do anything we put our minds too. My main focus and purpose is to HELP and add VALUE to as many lives as possible. I am solely interested in the progression and success of the student. It is my duty for me to teach you as much information on the Language in the most comprehensive way possible.

I'm originally from Long Island City, New York. I had a teacher of Japanese descent and she always brought her culture to the classroom. I was 10 years old, and I used to ask her questions about the way she

would dress and her mannerisms and she would tell me anything I wanted to know. The culture is where it began for me, but the language is what took me on a whole different level of mentality and understanding.

I began learning the language at the age of 12 from a Japanese friend. At age 14 I learned from online courses and music, it was so intriguing to me that I began self study. At age 17 is when my listening skills began to kick in. I was understanding not only music but some Anime, this is when it really got fun lol. At age 20, is when I reached advance speaking proficiency and was able to understand LIVE dialoge from Natives. I am now 27. I am excited to teach and speak fluent japanese to you guys so you can hear it in it's native form.

So Anthony why should I choose you to be my teacher?

#1 I am literate in Japanese, I speak proper and perfect English so you will understand me lol.

#2 I will talk to you in a relatable way, so you will not feel like you're in a boring lecture, Japanese is an exciting language, so you do not need to feel like you're preached to.

#3 I will make this fun and interactive, keeping you engaged from beginning to end, wanting to know more. Most importantly I will give you as much information in the time given, so you can leave knowing your money is well spent.

#4 Lastly I can teach you formal and informal Japanese. I will give you all the key components to the Japanese Language without the fluff. In most language instruction there are key things to know mixed with fluff. This is what makes students lose interest or get confused. There will be no fluff in my class, everything that I teach you will be a key component to your language learning success.

So what are you waiting for ? Your success starts here !! Let's do this !! :)

Having attended American school on the weekdays and a total-immersion Japanese school on the weekends (and coming home to parents who only spoke Japanese), I was lucky enough to grow up completely bi-lingual. With over a decade of experience teaching in private and classroom settings, I make my lessons fun, high-energy, and tailor-made to each individual. Please feel free to send me a message, and let's learn some Japanese! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

About Laura

Hello! I am a NYC-based singer, pianist, actress, and animal-lover. Born and raised in Los Angeles, my artistic career began as a classical pianist, performing in venues across California, Japan, and Austria from a very young age. As a singer, I performed around the world with the Broadway tour of Avenue Q, and I've been seen in dozens of musical theatre and Shakespeare productions throughout the U.S. and even in Russia!

By combining my two passions of singing and playing piano, I served as Artist-in-Residence for California Musical Theatre Company, Sacramento Theatre Company, and the cell theatre in NY.

I've been teaching in NYC for over a decade, and my passion is to inspire the next generation of creative people of all ages.

When it comes to music, there is a quote that I love: "Every expert was once a beginner." This quote reflect

s my philosophy on pursuing the arts: that it's never too late to start and that no matter where you are in your musical journey, practice is the key to success. Mastering a skill requires discipline and dedication, and my goal is to help you find joy and inspiration along the way.

My lessons focus on building a strong foundation of technique, which gives you the freedom to explore your creativity and musicality; it is very important for me that my students strive not only for technical precision but also for musical artistry. Together, we will set a practice schedule that you can adhere to regularly, and I'll make sure to send you away with specific instructions each week on how to practice effectively.

With my fun, high-energy approach to teaching, you are guaranteed to enjoy the journey as you take significant steps toward becoming an expert.​ I'm looking forward to meeting you and getting started soon!

I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

こんにちは! I'm a native speaker if Japanese. I've been tutoring Japanese for 10+ years in Japan and the U.S. I love talking about cultures, traveling, hobby, etc. I'd love to hear what your goals are and customize my lessons. :) Let's get started!

About Kyoko

My name is Kyoko. I am a native speaker of Japanese, born and raised in Japan. (As you might guess, my name came from the beautiful city of Kyoto.) When I was in college in Osaka, Japan, I started helping a lot of exchange students with their Japanese. Since then, teaching Japanese has been my passion. I enjoy explaining the grammar until my students fully understand it.

I moved to the U.S. In 2005. Currently I'm raising three bilingual children.

I love photography, crafts, watching anime, and traveling. I'd love to talk to you about all kinds of things. :)

Wow, I want to give ***** 6 Stars! If you are wanting to learn Japanese, then Kyoko is the perfect teacher that anyone could ask for!
I felt embarrassed to seek help to learn Japanese, because after many years of living in Tokyo for my work, I only knew a few small communicating words here and there... arigato, genki etc... and the writing, well that was 'impossible' to read for me!!
Kyoko was very understanding and made me feel completely comfortable about learning the Japanese language from the beginning. At almost 40 years old and trying to push my brain into learning something new, this was challenging and made me nervous at times. But Kyoko is an amazing teacher and when I finished a lesson with her, I was so proud with what I had accomplished and she made me feel empowered and more driven. I can now understand words in hirigana!! It is amazing to me.
I thank Kyoko so much for her help and support with the lessons we had together :) I will do my best.

Kyoko has been an amazing Japanese teacher to my 8 year old daughter. Her lessons are customized to what the student wants or needs to learn. Most importantly she listens and gives great advice for improving your skills. Kyoko is a great teacher who truly cares about your progress. I’ve tried other teachers and my daughter and me like Kyoko the best by far. So much so, she has been my daughter’s teacher for over 3 years.

Kyoko is extremely knowledgeable and is authentically Japanese born and raised in Japan but has lived in the U.S. for awhile now and is natively fluent in English for parents who may not understand Japanese. Her communication and timeliness are amazing! I’d recommend her to any of my friends and family - and have.
