Private Japanese Teacher

As a native Japanese speaker, who has spent the last 30 years in the United States, I understand the structural and grammatical differences in the two languages. This gives me both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives, which I find valuable as a language instructor.

I have taught Japanese to college students and adults, using beginning Japanese textbooks, and I am most comfortable teaching high school/college students and adults.
I can also teach conversational Japanese and/or customize the lesson to meet each student’s particular goals and needs.

Send me a message to find out if we are a good match!

Maya has been my daughter’s violin teacher for 5 years. She teaches in both English and Japanese, which expands my daughter's musical knowledge in 2 languages. She is patient and works well with kids. My daughter enjoys learning from Maya.

Maya has been my violin and piano teacher for about 7 years. She’s very patient and fun to work with, but sometimes strict for what I work on. We have to prepare for the annual students recital she has in the spring, but i feel I’ve learned a lot from her. She’s my favorite teacher!

Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I've been helping my friends and taught Japanese online.
I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

I have had lessons with Sayaka for three months now, so I thought I would update my review since my first lesson with her. I t has been great to see my Japanese improve while still having fun and not finding it to be a chore. Sayaka shows that she takes time to prepare her lessons for your needs and level. It is also great to chat with her and see that she really cares about you as a person. I don't plan on stopping any time soon!

She is a very good and patient instructor!! I can't wait to continue lessons with her!
