Japanese is my pet subject, and I am passionate about both learning and teaching it! Whether you're about to start learning yourself or are already learning and looking for extra help, congratulations! I have been teaching Japanese for two years to a variety of students, such as college students and military preparing to be stationed in Okinawa. Teaching Japanese is a particular passion of mine, because even though I wanted to learn as a high-schooler I had to wait until my sophomore year of college to find a teacher. Japanese learning should be far more easily accessible, and that's what I'm here for! Whatever your goal is, to learn Japanese for professional purposes, private purposes, or even just to watch your favorite TV programs without subtitles, I make it my personal goal to help you achieve it. I look forward to helping you succeed with Japanese!

About Emily
Howdy! I have an undergraduate degree in Classics and an MA in ancient history, and I have been teaching/tutoring since 2009. I know first-hand how much hard work can achieve, but my experience in teaching has also taught me that the work doesn't have to be so hard when a student has experienced, dedicated help. That's what I'm here for! I have done both paid and volunteer teaching, and I have worked both for myself and for a university. I have taught a wide range of students - ADD students, injured students unable to attend normal classes, struggling students - in a variety of environments. I have experience teaching to groups and individuals; face-to-face, chat-room style, and via video conferencing. I teach language because I have a passion for it, and my goal with my students, whether they are learning a new language or furthering the
ir native English skills, is always to help them achieve their own language learning goals. I look forward to helping you achieve yours!

During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Hikaru

Taro Taguchi is a fantastic teacher. He is highly knowledgeable, prepared, and always willing to help throughout the week. Along with being expedient in his responses, he is always capable of answering any questions clearly and concisely. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn Japanese. Happy to rate him 5 stars, and would give more if I could!

I really enjoy these lessons! English is my second language so I was little bit afraid of studying Japanese but Taro is helping me so much. His way of teaching is pretty nice and comfortable. I couldn't imagine that I can enjoy lessons as much as I do right now. However, Japanese is interesting and amazing language and I think this is great way how to learn it. Thank you so much!

Newark, DE

I've been in love with the Japanese language for over 20 years now, and teaching it for at least 15. I love to make my lessons interactive, with games, white board activities, and conversation. I use a variety of methods to teach, so my students gain a well-rounded understanding of the language. Whenever appropriate, I incorporate cultural notes and information about Japanese customs and holidays.

About Patience
I have a BS in Japanese, and have traveled to Japan 3 times, including my 4-month homestay experience. I have been a tutor for several years, but previously worked in language exchange programs both at Mount Union College and at University of Pennsylvania.
When I did my Japanese homestay, I lived with a family who had limited understanding of English, so I learned very quickly and relied upon my knowledge of Japanese. Each time I've returned, I've done the same, so that I am constantly learning, practicing, and improving myself.
I have tutored adults, adolescents, and children such as my 3 year old niece. I have a wide range of resources, books, fun games and activities that I have gathered or created over the years, that make learning exciting and keep it interesting.

I've been teaching Japanese since I was a teenager (am 30 years old now) and very patient. I Have helped several students reach fluency levels in Japanese over the years. If you have a goal I'll help you get there.

About Stephen
Currently looking for new students.
I teach piano, japanese, chess, go(weiqi/baduk), and meditation/self-improvement.
I am very proficient in all of the above subjects and have helped dozens of students reach their long-term goals over the years. I am also very patient and have taught children piano lessons for more than 10 years. As a learner I know how overwhelming new subject-matter could be and I tend to understand the pace that the student needs/wants to go at.
I feel a huge sense of accomplishment when I see my students improving. I also am constantly improving myself as a teacher so the lessons will only get better and the material should be easier to understand with time.
Let's master anything you want to work on, and have a lot of fun too :)
Thanks for reading!
-Stephen

Patient instructor. I'm super rusty and he was able to keep at my pace. He also made it interesting by using practical scenarios and alternating with cartoons or games. He watches anime as well so I was able to learn while talking about things I like. It helped practicing much easier.

When the child is born he or she can not immidiately talk and they learn their own native language mostly from the parents in the family. Taking it like a game! To formate such a friendly relaxed atmospere family-like atmoshere is the most important task of the Teacher ot the Tutor. But do not forget that when the children start to behave incorrectly, or their own way, they may recieve not even strictly speaking phisical or moral punishment not even condemnation. Never! Encouragement that mistakes are possible but still Learning backgound and Investigaring, Exploring spirit can turn to be the solid basis of the progress in learning. Better to make you thinking not only about beloved yourselves but about others. That is one of the important basic of the Japanese moral and social norms

About Anatoly
Even hard working and learning are the best jnly with a hearted honest smile. One of the best ways to master foreign language is through the local culture (folclore) and hillbilly music. Both are international as some kind of the borderless instrument. One should learn letters and musical notes but without studying of the approaches to harmony he could hardly approach to the balance The instrument is plain but hardly understandable alone. Together we can master everything!
