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, My name is Seiko. I am an experienced Japanese tutor teaching online nationwide as well as in-person locally in Silicon Valley/Bay area, CA. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements, and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learning the language but also strengthening your communication skills in understanding its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience of reviewing and proofreading resume and essays as well as AP/JLPT test preparations.

I had my first lesson with Seiko today, and it was great! She's very nice and encouraging and adds cultural notes throughout the lesson. She also makes sure she's not going too fast and welcomes questions. I look forward to learning Japanese with her!

Seiko-San was very cooperative and encouraging during my first online lesson. I believe it was her first time teaching online and she did well. I am really happy today with my experience, she gave me some nice compliments. I look forward to the next lesson.

Online Japanese Teacher

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

I recently returned from spending 2 years in Japan. My current level is JLPT N4.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin

"Aimi is a great instructor. She beings a curriculum and recommended resources to help you tackle the goal of learning a new language. I've had to reschedule a few classes, and she responds to my emails quickly and accommodates my schedule changes when able! I highly recommend her as a Japanese teacher!"

"Would 100% reccomend Aimi せんせい to any student looking to learn everything from conversational phrases/basics to someone looking to becoming fluent in the language.

Having almost no experience with the language, within the first 5 weeks of learning from Aimi せんせい, I have made tremendous strides in learning Japanese, so much so that I've decided to continue taking lessons beyond the first 5.

During each lesson, in addition to having a well structured learning plan, Aimi is amazing at explaining the cultural origins or words/phrases as well as some of the more nuanced aspects of the language. In addition to this, she also is very responsive over text, and is able to answer any questions I might have throughout the week (outside of lessons).

Lastly, I think the best part of these lessons are that they are fun, instant feedback and learning goals oriented, and that she changes the lesson/matches the pace the student is trying to/learning at.

ありがとうございました, せんせい!"
