Private Japanese Teacher

Learn to speak and read Japanese, have fun, and get to speak with a native Japanese speaker who only recently moved to the US.

I was born and raised in Hiroshima prefecture, Japan. I have a long history of teaching English to Japanese students at the Junior and High School levels, and use my skills now to teach English speakers about Japanese language.

About Yae

My family was enthusiastic about international cultures, and so I became an English teacher in Japan. I taught English to Junior High School students in Osaka for more than 10 years. During this time I realized the importance of experiencing other cultures first-hand, so I went to the US and stud

Mrs Yae isn't only an extremely careful, thoughtful and well prepared instructor, she is also able to offer an insight into the culture which helps a lot when learning a language that isn't commonly used in this part of the world. As an ESL instructor myself, I appreciate Mrs Yae's techniques when it comes to explaining some of the most complicated aspects of the language, I highly recommend her services.

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!

"Since Last December my daughter really enjoys having Sensei Yoshi as her Japanese tutor. Sensei is great at understanding what my daughter needs to learn in order to do her best in her Japanese class. Sensei Yoshi has been very patient with my daughter and has touched on the basics of Japanese further pushing my child to execell. I really recommended Sensei Yoshi if you are looking for a Japanese teacher"

"I'm Japanese American and work for Toyota. I was constantly being nagged because since I am Japanese I didn't know how to speak the language. Much to my surprise I didn't realize that by learning business Japanese would help my career. She really helped me in understanding the Japanese business culture and to be able to speak fluently."

"Mr Yoshi is an amazing teacher! Although I was very nervous, he carefully explained things and encouraged me. He wrote everything, clearly, so I could study later and made sure I understood the meaning behind the words and the reasons those phrases were used, in what context and to whom. I'm extremely happy that I've taken lessons from him. Thank you Mr Yoshi and Take Lessons! I'm even more dedicated to learning Japanese now!"

"Great teacher! Uses established course textbooks to guide the classes, yet adds custom lessons tailored to your needs or focus. Hiromi makes sure to challenge you on your trouble spots by preparing custom focused instruction. Within my first set of 5 lesson my skills improved dramatically. Even without being able to speak fluently, I could understand the large majority of my business meetings in Japan. In less than 2 months I have been able to learn correct, day to day conversational speaking that covers a variety of subjects and life necessities. Highly recommended!"
