About Paul S.

Close

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.

About Paul
I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily
. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!!

Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.

As a native Japanese speaker, who has spent the last 30 years in the United States, I understand the structural and grammatical differences in the two languages. This gives me both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives, which I find valuable as a language instructor.

I have taught Japanese to college students and adults, using beginning Japanese textbooks, and I am most comfortable teaching high school/college students and adults.
I can also teach conversational Japanese and/or customize the lesson to meet each student’s particular goals and needs.

Send me a message to find out if we are a good match!

About Rie
Born and raised in Japan, I moved to the United States in the 80's to pursue the goal of obtaining a library degree. Fast forward almost 30 years, I now live in Western New York, working in a local school district.
In the past 30 years, I have worked as a librarian, an English instructor in Japan, and a school administrative assistant. I have also taught Japanese to college students and adults in my free time, and when I become an empty nester this summer, would love to dedicate more time teaching the language and customs of my native country. I can help you with homework, conversational Japanese, and more - just contact me and we can find out if we are a good match!

I was born and raised in Japan. Learning second language is sometimes frustrating. I will explain Japanese with cultural background so you can understand better. I have taught from 5 years old to college students. I can do both teaching and toutering. Any age is welcome!!!

About Yuko
I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more.

As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are going to work on slowly in a fun way. I have taught from 3 years to 70 years old. Everyone can enjoy the piano anytime!!!

As a Japanese teacher, I will explain Japanese with cultural backgrounds so you can understand better. I can do both teaching and tutoring. Your goal is my goal. I would love to tailor the lessons whatever you are looking for.

My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

Kyoko has been an amazing Japanese teacher to my 8 year old daughter. Her lessons are customized to what the student wants or needs to learn. Most importantly she listens and gives great advice for improving your skills. Kyoko is a great teacher who truly cares about your progress. I’ve tried other teachers and my daughter and me like Kyoko the best by far. So much so, she has been my daughter’s teacher for over 3 years.

Kyoko is extremely knowledgeable and is authentically Japanese born and raised in Japan but has lived in the U.S. for awhile now and is natively fluent in English for parents who may not understand Japanese. Her communication and timeliness are amazing! I’d recommend her to any of my friends and family - and have.
