今日は and welcome to learning Japanese, I have a bachelor's degree in Japanese language and culture from the Ohio State University, and I have tutored Japanese before and it really isn't as intimidating as it looks. I've learned through many ways and I have many many resources that I will gladly share with you so you can learn on your own, whether you're a beginner or advanced, I can direct you to how to become very fluent with all my knowledge and resources combined. Also as a bonus I will teach you some kanji calligraphy if interested as well.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

I'm originally from Tokyo, Japan.
I have been in U.S.A for 10 years already, though…
Since I'm a Japanese, bunch of people have asked me to teach and I always helped them when I have time.

I even took a Japanese class to learn how people study the language in college class, I can help people in college class method.
I also have materials that help you to improve writing and reading.
I know reading and writing are tough. But step by step, you definitely master those!

Let's talk what you want to know and why are you interested in the language. Maybe because of Anime? Comic? or even some pop music? I can easily find those media to help you.

Class start from talking about what you like, who you are. Speak as much as you can or write in English then translate it into Japanese.
If you have no clue in writing, I give you materials to study "Hiragana' and "Katakana." if you are already comfortable of those letters, I'll move on to easy "kanji."
We will talk about grammar based ...

Taro Taguchi is a fantastic teacher. He is highly knowledgeable, prepared, and always willing to help throughout the week. Along with being expedient in his responses, he is always capable of answering any questions clearly and concisely. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn Japanese.

I really enjoy these lessons! English is my second language so I was little bit afraid of studying Japanese but Taro is helping me so much. His way of teaching is pretty nice and comfortable. I couldn't imagine that I can enjoy lessons as much as I do right now. However, Japanese is interesting and amazing language and I think this is great way how to learn it. Thank you so much!

She is very nice and easy to learn from. She explains everything so great and if I have any questions or need her to slow down she adjusts to fit my needs! She's the best!!! I've only had one lesson from her so far and I can't wait for my next lesson. She makes a difficult language to learn simple and clear.

Over the years I've used different books to teach, and I've found that the following books have worked well for my students:
- Youths (Ages 10 - 17): Japanese for Young People; Japanese from Zero
- College Students: Genki; Elementary Japanese
- Adults: Japanese for Busy People
- For the intermediate Japanese learners: Japanese Tutor - Grammar and Vocabulary Workbook.
- I can also get the textbooks that the students use at their classrooms.

About Kaz
I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. After moving to the U.S. to attend college, I worked for a couple of U.S companies before I came to work for Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, as a staff member.

My tutoring sessions are usually held on the Cornell University campus or at coffee shops in Ithaca. I also provide interactive online lessons using Skype. My services include: spoken and written language lessons; school work supplement for high school- and college-level courses; and cultural and travel preparations.

I offer a free initial interview session to see how I can best customize my lessons for each student. We can decide which material would be appropriate for the individual students at the initial interview session. (Please note that the students are responsible for providing their own materials.)

Hello, my name is Maxmillion. I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Guam, and my parents are both from Okinawa, Japan. I grew up speaking both English and Japanese, and spent many summers attending school in Okinawa. I am comfortable teaching conversational Japanese, hiragana, katakana, basic kanji, and I can also help with proper pronunciation. I currently offer online lessons and in home lessons, but can also meet up locally at a coffee shop, library, etc. よろしくお願いします!

About Maxmillion
I am very proud to have been born and raised on the lovely island of Guam! I have been playing guitar, bass, and drums since I was 15, and have had a passion for music since I can remember. In 2007, I earned my associates degree in music from Musicians Institute Hollywood. I have had my music placed in popular television shows, such as “The Real World” and “Road Rules," as well as the film “The Tested.”

I previously played guitar in a project called Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind. We were featured as the musical guest on the popular late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in January 2014. We were also featured on the local television programs "Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" and "New Day Northwest." We are also featured on YouTube as sponsored artists on EMGtv and Blue Microphones. I also have had the opportunity to share the stage with
Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayer, Don Felder, Brandi Carlile, Russell Ferrante, Travis Carlton, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Guitar is my main focus, but I am also comfortable teaching bass and ukulele. I love all styles, and specialize in rock, blues, funk, pop, reggae, metal, and acid jazz. I have experience teaching students of all ages (as young as 4 years old) and am currently an active teacher. I am also fluent in Japanese.

When the child is born he or she can not immidiately talk and they learn their own native language mostly from the parents in the family. Taking it like a game! To formate such a friendly relaxed atmospere family-like atmoshere is the most important task of the Teacher ot the Tutor. But do not forget that when the children start to behave incorrectly, or their own way, they may recieve not even strictly speaking phisical or moral punishment not even condemnation. Never! Encouragement that mistakes are possible but still Learning backgound and Investigaring, Exploring spirit can turn to be the solid basis of the progress in learning. Better to make you thinking not only about beloved yourselves but about others. That is one of the important basic of the Japanese moral and social norms

About Anatoly
Even hard working and learning are the best jnly with a hearted honest smile. One of the best ways to master foreign language is through the local culture (folclore) and hillbilly music. Both are international as some kind of the borderless instrument. One should learn letters and musical notes but without studying of the approaches to harmony he could hardly approach to the balance The instrument is plain but hardly understandable alone. Together we can master everything!
