Private Japanese Teacher

As a non-native speaker of Japanese, I understand the struggles that an English speaker faces when learning Japanese and can alleviate the problems. I will provide my understanding and comparisons that are easier to comprehend than dense textbooks. I have studied Japanese for 4 years and am currently working on it as my major in college with a GPA of 4.0. I absolutely love explaining the detailed nuances that Japanese has to offer and would love to teach you!

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 took my first class with Sayaka a couple of days ago, I'm glad I got to start my Japanese learning process with her. We had a very good first class, she answered to all of my questions and gave me good advice about what should I be starting with.

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!

"Masaki fosters a learning environment where he takes all of the hard work of learning a new language transforms it into fun. He has a bright personality, and the ability to not only translate the language, but the language in the context of the culture. He doesn't just teach you to speak Japanese, but how to be Japanese!

Talking to Masaki you would never know that English was not one of his native languages... I'm still shocked that he didn't begin learning until he was already an adult!

If you are wanting to learn Japanese, or if you are Japanese and you want to become as a native English speaker, you have found your guy!"
