Private Japanese Teacher

Hello everyone! My name is Miku. I was born in Hawaii and raised in Japan. I graduated from Dokkyo university in Saitama, Japan, and majored in hospitality and tourism. I moved to Hawaii two years ago and currently work for American Airlines as a flight attendant.

I can help you with conversation, grammar, and pronunciation. I like to use a textbook that you usually use, but I am flexible. We can work on specific grammar points, vocabulary building, role playing, pronunciation, and plenty of exercises to improve your listening and speaking skills.

I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that you can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at the pace you want with me.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me and PLEASE sent me a message before booking lessons. I'm flight attendant so my schedule varies from day to day.

Hope to see you soon!

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.

Online Japanese Teacher

I am a Japanese native speaker who has a deep interest in helping students learn Japanese and learn how to be successful in Japanese society. I lived in Japan until this past year and worked as a civil servant for seven years. During that time, I helped JET Program workers from America learn how to talk with their bosses and co-workers. This means I can help you learn smooth business Japanese as well as more casual language. In Japan and in the US, I frequently advise LGBTQ students and students of color about Japanese culture and how to adjust to Japanese society. Both Japanese language and culture can be tough--but I will work with you to help you succeed and achieve your goals!

My favorite aspect of tutoring is tailoring my lessons to YOUR needs and desires. If you would like anime, but need more speaking practice, I can come up with role-play situations that will allow you to talk about your interests. If you like Japanese culture and want to read more high-level texts, we can ...

Aki has earned my highest recommendation. She provides weekly Japanese language and culture online tutoring to my 14-year-old son. She engages him fully, providing a rich multi-media experience utilizing video chat and whiteboarding effectively to simultaneously teach the spoken and written language (Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji). He is excited at the prospect of each new lesson and is learning quickly.
Martha
Aki is the best Japanese teacher that I have ever had! Aki plans lessons that exactly match the things I need to learn, so it is very efficient for me. She is especially good at explaining difficult grammar points in a very clear manner. She has really helped me improve in reading, writing and speaking. I am very grateful to her and strongly recommend her to other students.

My niece had so much fun with her first lesson and is looking forward to learning so much more.
Tasha
Signed my 9 year old up for Japanese lessons, she had her first lesson last night. She was so excited to show us what she learned, although my daughter is a little shy Aimi was awesome!
Alexandre G.
This is only the second online lesson that I've ever had in Japanese. My first review that I gave to my former teacher was five stars. This one though, If I can give more than that I would but unfortunately five stars is the limit. Whoever is taking, or considering taking Japanese lessons with Aimi wont be disappointed. I'm in my 50's and Aimi would do anything to make sure that I would grasp the material. I'm 100 percent sure that she is equally outstanding teacher with younger students...And you, whoever you might be out there reading this review and willing to try learning Japaneses, go ahead and schedule a lesson with her; whether you are adult or young I'm confident Aimie will be the perfect fit.

"Really enjoying our lessons so far! Hikaru is very flexible, which has really worked out well for me. Since I live in Japan our schedules are very different, but we've been able to make it work nonetheless. She always has lesson plans put together and sends you the PDF's before each lesson. If you are curious about things not in the lesson plan, she's always happy to explore that with you as well. Most importantly, she makes you feel comfortable while you are trying to read and speak Japanese. Thank you, Hikaru!"

5 Must-Read Japanese Manga Books
