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!

My lessons with Yukari are so helpful I’ve only had three so far and have learned so much. She makes everything super easy to understand and the lessons are so much fun; making them comforting and encouraging. She does a great job at including various cultural tips and background stories on the language. It is so interesting and useful if you ever want to go to Japan! I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone looking to improve their skills in this language, at ALL LEVELS!

Yukari is prompt, responsive, sweet, and easy to get along with! I love that she's a native Japanese speaker and can answer all of my questions about cultural norms and etiquette. Can't wait for more lessons with her.

O genki desu ka?
Hi, I'm Richard, and I can teach you simple Japanese. I graduated from BYU in Japanese and lived as an LDS Missionary in Tokyo for two years in 2003-2005. I love teaching everything that I know in a simple, understandable way. So I can help you learn the basics faster than you would normally. I know what it's like learning in school where you seem to take forever, and don't get very good. I also know what it's like talking to many people in Japan, and learning very quickly, and knowing the difference. I want to help you learn as efficiently and as quickly as possible. I also have a one hour presentation of the basics of Japanese grammar, that basically covers like the first 2 years of college Japanese classes! No joke, it's a powerpoint presentation I've put together that will really give you the "big picture" with the backwards grammar that we try to understand. Ask me any question, and I'll do my best to help you out! Mata ne!

About Richard
