During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

Maximize your Japanese learning with a native speaker with years of teaching experience! I tailor my lessons to each student's learning style, her/his needs and goals. I use Genki 1 and 2 textbooks and workbooks with most of my beginner to intermediate level students, unless other textbooks and/or learning resources are requested. During the lesson, my focus is generally on the grammar explanations and practice, as well as reading, and speaking practice. Homework is assigned after each lesson, and students are expected to work independently on vocabulary building, unless otherwise requested. I encourage all of my students to contact me between lessons if they have any questions, and I will try to answer them within 24 hours. I am currently accepting students ages 16 and up. I am looking forward to meeting you! ❗️Cancellation, reschedule and late policy ❗️ 1. Lesson cancellation and rescheduling must be requested at least 8 hours before the scheduled lesson starts. Without an 8-hour notice, you will be charged for the lesson, regardless of the reasons. 2. If you cannot attend your lessons for two or more consecutive weeks, your time slot may be given to another student. If you wish to resume lessons with me but your original time slot has been filled, please contact me. 3. If you realize you will be late for your lesson, please contact me as soon as possible by text or email. I will wait until you log in, but I cannot extend the duration of your lesson. No refund will be given for the time you missed. Please remember that by signing up for lessons with me, you will be agreeing to all of the above.

Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client? Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways. Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left. Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down. My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends. Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible! One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can break down and explain jokes and humor to the point where you’ll be captivating a crowd. I want to build you up, not only in your speaking, listening, reading and writing ability, but in your confidence, because I believe confidence and charisma is the foundation for communication. I have also trained in acting and script analysis so I like to use movies and TV shows to teach language in a fun and interactive way. Let me help you master Japanese!
