I am an open minded, friendly, multicultural experienced tutor of Japanese languages.
I can personalize lessons at your request from using basic GENKI textbook or Japanese for busy people to free conversation upon your advance request. Please let me know what your purpose and goal. I will do my best to help you to achieve your goal. (Hopefully with a lot of fun.)
I can also teach you Japanese culture such as Origami, cooking and calligraphy. I love Japanese history and would like to share richness of Japanese culture.

I am a native Japanese speaker from Tokyo. I have served as an instructor at the Greater Louisville Regional Japanese Saturday School, which provides courses entirely in Japanese. I have helped students prepare for JLPT (Japanese-Language Proficiency Test) and the Japan Kanji Aptitude Test (Kanji Kentei). Whether you want to improve your reading or writing skills, or you are simply looking for a conversation partner, let me know!

If you are not sure if Japanese lessons are for you, I recommend signing up for shorter lessons first and then switch to longer lessons if you enjoy it:-) I would love to hear from you. Thank you!

Ramon R.
Really great teacher. Easy to learn with and is very good at explaining the cultural aspects of the Japanese language.
Julianne
Out of all the tutors I've been with over the years, Toshi is by far the best. He is able to take the most difficult concepts and break it down to where anyone can understand which is something that most teachers aren't good at. All and all Toshi is very knowledgeable at what he does as well as understanding and accommodating. Toshi is celebrity tutor you can't go wrong with.
Liz
I’m totally new to Japanese and I was very nervous. I just completed my 3rd 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, 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! :D

"Was very tolerant of the fact that I had zero knowledge of the language upon entry. He also doesn't waste time and is good about explaining words and their meanings. His snippets of knowledge about Japanese traditions and their relationship with certain words he drops added bonus insight to them that I really enjoyed! He is also very clear about what should be done to improve for the next lessons!"
