I am writing this from my moms phone so I thought I should elaborate that I am a 15 year old student, but I absolutely love my lessons with Toshi-san. He is hilarious and makes lessons extremely fun and makes it a lot easier to retain information. It is very hard for me to remember things and be invested due to my ADHD but he never fails to keep my attention. I definitely recommend him for everyone! I think anyone who wants to learn proper Japanese and etiquette should have lessons with him.
Alexis
So cool and personable, and you can tell he genuinely cares and knows what he is talking about. The best possible first lesson I could have asked for. I loved it! So looking forward to see how this goes!!!

Amazing and very patient! Highly recommend and appreciate him!

Private Japanese Teacher

I am a private tutor of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 7 to middle-age. I love to be a witness when my students suddenly "get" something new we've been working on for a while. Japanese is a fascinating, beautiful, and complicated language, and it's exciting to be a partner in my students' achievements and success!

I have a lot of experience teaching middle school and high school age students--including my own kids, whom I homeschool. My first visit to Japan was a semester study abroad in my senior year of high school, and I've lived there off and on since then. My students receive the benefit of my life experiences there, including preparation for the realities of daily life in Japan--from how to use the public transit, to what to do during a natural disaster.

Along with my on-the-ground experience working in Japan as a translator/interpreter in a fast-paced, high-stakes environment, I hold an M.A. in Japanese and N1 (highest level) certification on the Japanese ...

Clare is an absolutely wonderful teacher. She has taught both of our high school aged boys. She is flexible on scheduling. Very calm and patient with both boys. An absolute dream to work with.
Olivia S.
My 12 year old lived her first lesson with Clare! She had been learning on her own a bit and was happy to hear she was learning pretty well. Clare communicated with me very quickly after the lesson to let me know what they had done and how it went as well as what to expect going forward. Excited to see what the next lessons bring!

Japanese is known as one of the most complicated languages. Learning to speak the language, however, doesn't have to - and shouldn't - be complicated at all! Simplified, structured methods that I use will help you stay the course and accelerate your progress for your personal or professional needs. The ability of not only understanding but also having authentic conversations can be yours!

Having been a teacher of Japanese as a second language certified by the Education Ministry of Japan since the 90's, I've had the privilege of teaching diverse learners in age, nationality, proficiency, and more. As your guide, coach, and partner I will fully customize the program together with you so that you can gain the greatest value of ever minute, every lesson. 

Looking forward to working with you soon. Gambari-mashoo!

Masahiro has been a great teacher for my kids. They took lessons from him through summer and fall and learnt a lot of martial art techniques. Masahiro was always very patient and supportive with their progress. I highly recommend teacher Masa (as my kids called him)! Thank you.
David
Masahiro was incredibly wonderful as an instructor. I've done martial arts for 15 years, and practiced 5 to 6 different martial arts. Masahiro was one of the best I've trained with. He was able to adapt to a person's style, was able to instruct in an excellent fashion despite having a limited view of my technique (since it was done remotely). I give the highest recommendation.
Mal P.
My kids enjoyed their first lesson with teacher Masa. The were engaged in a fun filled learning environment the whole time and came out learning how to block and punch! They are already looking forward to their next lessons!

Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...
