I've seen Wakana several times over the summer in preparation for a fall class, and I'm confidant that she is more than capable of helping me through the two years of the language need for graduation. She has a strong grasp of both English and, from what I can tell, Japanese along with great interpersonal skills. I would gladly recommend Wakana to friends and family.

I had so much fun today speaking Japanese with Wakana! She is very kind and will help you if you don't know what to say. I look forward to learning more with Wakana!

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

Lessons are online only.

Akira is a great teacher. I really appreciate that he explains everything in depth when I don’t understand the grammar. I also appreciate that he corrects me every time I mispronounce something.

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.

"I have taken 5 lessons with Sayaka sensei and although it’s been rough ( not because of Sayaka Sensei, but because of my busy schedule) it has been completely worth it. Sayaka sensei is patient and understanding. I’ve had to reschedule various classes due to overbooking myself and she has been understanding and gracious enough to keep being my sensei lol
I look forward to my classes, no matter how exhausted I am and only a good sensei can provide that sense of motivation. If you are considering taking Japanese lessons, Sayaka sensei is the right person to help you with your journey.

P.s Japanese is a challenging language (in my opinion)but it’s very interesting!"
