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!
Ken
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!

We can focus on all four skills; speaking, listening, reading, and writing, but if a student would like to focus on only speaking, we can certainly do that as well. We also talk about cultural aspects of Japan and cover the vocabularies related to the cultural aspects.

Sensei seems to really enjoy teaching. As both a native speaker and a longtime resident of the US, she is able to bridge the cultures in a way that many instructors would not be able to. I have been studying with her for over six months - both in a private and college setting - and I feel that I would be hard pressed to find a better teacher. In a college setting, she is very strict and covers a lot of material in a short period of time, and those who take her courses must be prepared to expend significant time and energy for success, but those who can keep up are well equipped to continue their studies with pretty much any other teacher or course.
Chris
Sensei Emi was patient, kind, and very thorough with her teaching. I started from knowing absolutely nothing about Japanese language or culture and now, having completed just 5 hours of lessons with her, I feel I have a solid foundation to build upon. Within our 5 hours we covered numbers, greetings, and almost all of the 46 basic hiragana. She was born and raised in Japan so it was lovely hearing about the culture and society from stories she lived through first hand. As I continue my education in Japanese I hope to return to her and continue to learn more. I highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone learning Japanese at any level.
Anderson
Emi is the second private tutor that my company has had and she by far has been the best, hands-down. She is professional and experienced but she is also flexible with scheduling which is a necessity for business professionals who travel quite a bit for work.
The homework is not strenuous but is focused and important for success in her lessons. She also teaches at a nice pace but also is willing to work with you if you feel that you are falling behind. You can absolutely tell that Emi cares about her students and their progression with the language no matter their age and experience.

Kiernan
My first Japanese lesson was excellent. Because of my weird amount of previous knowledge, we spent a large amount of the time finding my exact skill level and fixing my bad intonations, and where I need to start. It was very fun to try to communicate my own thoughts in Japanese, and Toshi was very patient with me while I fumbled my words. I look forward to future lessons and I have high hopes for the final results.
Juliette
Toshi taught Japanese to my 12-year-old son. He was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He was asking key questions about the Japanese problems to my son. My son felt comfortable with his way of tutoring, even Toshi is knowledgeable, he is not intimidating at all, he is a friendly Japanese wizard.
Renn
Toshi is an excellent tutor. He does a great job of assessing a student's ability, interests, and goals and tailoring the lessons to the student. He has a gift for teaching, and he creates a wonderful space for learning. As someone has mastered a number of other languages and complex grammars, I know the importance of technical ability as well, and Toshi has an excellent command of grammar, syntax, and structures of Japanese. He is a native speaker AND a great teacher. I feel fortunate to have found him and am happy to recommend him.

"This is my first time using the online class. I enrolled my 6 year-old who has written experience with Japanese but needs to practice his conversation skills. Sensei made the class very interactive and we used a lesson plan. Even though the lessons were geared toward an older student, he made sure the vocabulary, sentences and daily experience applied to my son. Highly recommend Sensei Yoshi!

"Clare has been an amazing tutor! I did about ten weeks of one-on-one Japanese lessons in anticipation of a trip to Japan - although the trip fell through, Clare was extremely helpful and patient, always teaching with an emphasis on how things would actually be expressed in Japan. She was great at establishing the foundations and rules of grammar, but also when those rules can be broken.

After spending several years in the country, she also has fabulous insights into the culture and how to navigate as a non-native in Japan. Thanks Clare, I will be certainly be back when I can plan my next trip!"

Japanese Writing Systems for Beginners: Learn Hiragana

With three different writing systems, learning Japanese can be confusing for beginners. It's much easier to break the systems down, and focus on one at a time. Here, Japanese teacher Kaoru N. shares his tips to help you learn hiragana...  There are three types of letters in the Japanese language: hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Hiragana and katakana are based on sounds and pronunciation. In kanji, each character has its own meaning. Hiragana characters are the most fundamental and basi …
