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

はじめまして & thank you for taking a moment to check out my profile! I'm originally from Tokyo Japan, and I moved to NY with my family during high school. I've completed Master's degrees in Language Education & Communication, and Bachelor's Degrees in Music Performance and Political Science. I enjoyed organizing and running language study groups in college, and experienced working as a Japanese TA for several semesters. I LOVE to teach in general, whether it's music or languages, and I personalize most of my teaching materials for individual student. Let me know what YOUR unique short/long-term goals are, along with interest topics, and we'll work it out! Thanks again, and I'm excited to hear from you!

Hikaru is down to earth, conversational and a great teacher. I have already learned so much from her. I can't say enough good things about her. If you make time to study on your own, in conjunction with her lessons you'll be picking up the language in no time at all!

My daughter loves her instructor and was very happy with her.

O genki desu ka?
Hi, I'm Richard, and I can teach you simple Japanese. I graduated from BYU in Japanese and lived as an LDS Missionary in Tokyo for two years in 2003-2005. I love teaching everything that I know in a simple, understandable way. So I can help you learn the basics faster than you would normally. I know what it's like learning in school where you seem to take forever, and don't get very good. I also know what it's like talking to many people in Japan, and learning very quickly, and knowing the difference. I want to help you learn as efficiently and as quickly as possible. I also have a one hour presentation of the basics of Japanese grammar, that basically covers like the first 2 years of college Japanese classes! No joke, it's a powerpoint presentation I've put together that will really give you the "big picture" with the backwards grammar that we try to understand. Ask me any question, and I'll do my best to help you out! Mata ne!

About Richard

My goal is to help students ENJOY the piano by finding ways to make it easier and doable. I have a very useful approach in helping students become self sufficient to sight read very well, to see patterns, understand music theory to either help them play well, or to even create their own music(I compose a lot of great music as well)

I couldn't sight read very well until I was 16, but I had a great sight reading teacher that showed me how to develop it, and now I can say that I'm one of the best sight readers out there that I know. I was a ballet pianist at Brigham Young University for several years where all I did was sightread binders full of ballet/classical music. I play for choirs, church congregations, jazz bands, or musical jam sessions all the time, and I couldn't do that at all if I didn't learn how to sight read well.

I would love to help you learn the piano, and I will do my best to make learning as effective as possible. I especially enjoy teaching those who quit and would like to try again, because I know what that is like.

Concerning my musical background, I've played, arranged, and composed piano for choirs, bands, jazz combos, singers. I've been in bands all my life, and have composed for jazz bands, choirs, and orchestras at BYU and in Eastern Europe. I also play about 10 different instruments. I won two Student Emmys in Hollywood for my compositions to BYU's animations in 2010 & 2014.

I am currently writing music for video games.

◆30-minute lesson: Speaking practice plus one activity from listening, reading, or grammar, idioms your choice.

About Naoko

Hi, everyone! I am Naoko. I live in the upper New York state since 2010 and teach Japanese online and in-person. I used to work at a trading company in the semiconductor industry in Japan. Also, I have three years' experience of working in the bridal company. These experiences working in the two different fields are very valuable and I acquired much knowledge and business skills. I like traveling, eating authentic food and talking with foreign people. I have been to Eastern Europe, Asia, Oceania, Canada, Bahamas, Maldives.
I currently teach Japanese online and in the local area around Upstate New York. I have students from various occupations like lawyers, professors, engineers, and doctors. Also, I teach young Japanese children who are developing their literacy and speaking skills, teenage students being homeschooled, and college studen

ts working on JLPT preparation or their graduate theses. Furthermore, I help businessmen and women who are trying to apply for job opportunities in Japan and who want to learn Business Japanese as relates to the honorific system, how to write formal emails, conversation on the telephone, and useful phrases for business situations.
My lessons are full of originality and are designed to match your level and meet your goals. For beginning students, I focus on teaching grammar first and using that grammar to practice making short sentences. For the middle and advanced levels students, we will work together to strengthen your vocabulary, listening and reading skills. Also, they write composition homework every time, and we correct mistakes together in the next lesson. Advanced level students discuss one or two news articles or themes which you decide.
Let's start learning Japanese with me.
I look forward to seeing you soon!

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!!!

About Yuko

I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more.

As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are going to work on slowly in a fun way. I have taught from 3 years to 70 years old. Everyone can enjoy the piano anytime!!!

As a Japanese teacher, I will explain Japanese with cultural backgrounds so you can understand better. I can do both teaching and tutoring. Your goal is my goal. I would love to tailor the lessons whatever you are looking for.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Are you looking to read manga? Watch anime or play Japanese video games without subtitles? I can help you get started on your Japanese language learning journey!

I moved to Japan in 2014 where I taught English, tutored Japanese to other foreigners, and did translations & interpretations in an office. I lived there for 5 years and learned how to speak, read, and write Japanese. I currently have an N2 Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) certification -- which means that I'm at a native-like fluency!

I'm currently back in the US now where I help tutor those who are looking to learn Japanese!

So, if you would love

About Nic

Hey there! My name is Nic and I absolutely love Japan and its culture. In 2014, I moved to Japan and lived in a rural town where I was quickly made to speak Japanese everyday. I studied Japanese daily and quickly made many great Japanese friends! We talked a lot about Japanese culture, anime, manga, and other daily life topics in Japan.

Before I left Japan, I took the Japanese Language Proficiency Test and passed the N2 level, which means that I am of native-like fluency! I often help tutor and explain Japanese language concepts to those who are interested in learning the language in both a basic or a higher-level capacity. I try my best to explain difficult topics in easy-to-understand ways with both explanations and examples. A lot of those who I have helped in the past have told me that this was incredibly helpful as they can both gra

sp why certain words or grammar points are used and how to use them!

If you're interested in learning Japanese with me, feel free to reach out and we'll set up a time. I'm looking forward to helping you achieve your Japanese language goals!
