Private Japanese Teacher

Hello, I have been teaching languages for over 15 years, and I love to see my students grow and develop. I speak 4 languages (French, Hebrew, English & Japanese) so I know what it takes to learn a language. It's much more than just "words"!
I lived in Japan for 7.5 years where I taught English as a second language.
Now I teach Japanese for beginners, French, and Hebrew at all levels.
Let me take you on a cultural journey where you not only learn to speak and read basic Japanese but understand the intricate cultural nuances of Japan, it's magical!
Looking forward to meeting you.

Hello! I'm a native Japanese speaker and experienced Japanese tutor. I have been tutoring Japanese since when I was in university as a TA for international students. I adopt the best teaching method and material for each student's needs and make sure that learning experience is fun and effective.

About Tomoko

When it comes to learning a language, I believe that correct grammatical understanding and the amount of output are equally important. Hence I focus on both grammar and speaking/writing practice during my lesson for the best result and you'll feel that your Japanese is improving! My previous Jap

The lesson moved at a comfortable pace. As this is our first intro to Japanese lessons, we had some difficulties with word pronunciation, but Tomoko was patient with us. She helped us break the words down and understand the sentence structures.
We look forward to our next lesson.

My Japanese lessons are unique in that I can adapt to multiple learning styles. I can empathize with English learners that have been struggling with Japanese grammar and sentence-forming issues that plague so many by explaining it in innovative ways. I am also very up to date with Japanese pop culture, history, and other fun aspects, such as travel, food, and music, so I often enjoy incorporating those fun topics into my lessons wherever possible!

I have been working with her on and off for over a year. She's been a fantastic tutor. She willing and able to adapt her tutoring to specific needs and flexible in terms of how and when to meet. Recently I traveled to Japan and I was able to function in simple conversations which was what I needed and the trip went well. She has a good sense of humor and does not take herself too seriously. I definitely recommend her and will continue to use her.

"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!"
