Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!

Molly is amazing! She’s taught me way more than singing skills - my confidence as a singer has grown exponentially since I began taking lessons from Molly. I would recommend Molly to anyone, especially anyone who may think that lessons are intimidating. I feel comfortable making mistakes because Molly is so kind and positive. That said, since starting taking lessons with Molly, I’ve been making a lot fewer mistakes! Molly is the best!
Tia
Molly is such a kind and patient teacher. She never gets upset if you make a mistake and she is extremely encouraging throughout the lesson. I'm a very shy singer but I feel comfortable singing in front of Molly because she isn't judgemental at all! I always look forward to my lessons with her and I've already grown as a singer and grown confidence-wise because of working with her! I highly recommend her!

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
