Toshi Sensei was great at sharing a mix of Japanese cultural knowledge and language skills. Our first session was jam packed with valuable learning. Looking forward to future sessions.

Very personable and knowledgeable. Easy to learn from.

I'm totally new to Japanese and I was very nervous. I just completed my 4th lesson and I'm finding learning Japanese is fun! Toshi is very patient and he is helping me create a plan forward. I have been working hard and have kind of gotten Hiragana,Katakana, but I need a lot more practice. I am able to read and write some words and in our lesson today I spoke my first complete Japanese sentence. Thank you Toshi for your help and for making my Japanese journey fun!

Private Japanese Teacher

Hello, I have been teaching languages for over 15 years, and I love to see my students grow and develop. I speak 4 languages (French, Hebrew, English & Japanese) so I know what it takes to learn a language. It's much more than just "words"!
I lived in Japan for 7.5 years where I taught English as a second language.
Now I teach Japanese for beginners, French, and Hebrew at all levels.
Let me take you on a cultural journey where you not only learn to speak and read basic Japanese but understand the intricate cultural nuances of Japan, it's magical!
Looking forward to meeting you.

"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."
