Private Japanese Teacher

Konnichiwa! Since returning to the U.S. from Japan last year, I have been tutoring Japanese to young adults. I lived for almost nine years in Japan where I worked in a private school teaching English literature and ESL. I used Japanese daily in staff meetings and in writing reports and e-mails. My experience learning Japanese is unique in that I am self-taught (though I had many mentors). I have passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level N2, and speak to my son in Japanese as well. I am a recent graduate of Teachers College, Columbia University. I look forward to aiding in your learning process.

Private Japanese Teacher

Are you looking to read manga? Watch anime or play Japanese video games without subtitles? I can help you get started on your Japanese language learning journey!

I moved to Japan in 2014 where I taught English, tutored Japanese to other foreigners, and did translations & interpretations in an office. I lived there for 5 years and learned how to speak, read, and write Japanese. I currently have an N2 Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) certification -- which means that I'm at a native-like fluency!

I'm currently back in the US now where I help tutor those who are looking to learn Japanese!

So, if you would love

Private Japanese Teacher

I teach a wide range of students, from beginning/travel Japanese to advanced business Japanese. I also specialize in teaching all levels of JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) preparation. I have many students at the highest level JLPT N1. If Karaoke, Japanese Drama or Anime interest you, then we can have fun learning together.
Teaching is my passion! I love teaching! My teaching style is to have fun learning without stress. I cater my lessons to the individual student to meet his/her diverse interests and academic goals. I create simple formulas, so that difficult Japanese grammar is easy to understand. I respect student’s learning style with great patience. I strongly believe that repetition is key to mastering a language and try to impress this fact on students

Online Japanese Teacher

Today, I have full Japanese fluency, and have worked in both Kashiwazaki, Niigata Prefecture--the deep countryside--and the hectric center of Tokyo. But, like so many of you, I started learning Japanese on my own, with only textbooks and cassette tapes. I am almost fully self-taught, and didn't take my first actual 'Japanese class' until my time at Florida State University. Starting out learning at age six, I understand what works and what doesn't when learning at home. My lessons consist of real-world examples and pop-culture related materials, that won't lose your attention.

I also cultivate lessons depending on what you struggle with. Having trouble with Kanji? I can help untangle all of that confusion. Need grammar help? We'll chat until the grammar just comes naturally. Just let me know your goals, and we'll work together!

About Carley

I'm a Japanese translator and teacher, who has lived everywhere from Tokyo, Japan to Salem, Oregon and everywhere in between. Currently based in Mississippi, I'd love to share the incredible gift of language with those who have a passion for Japan and Japanese culture! I began learning Japanese
