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 ...

Private Japanese Teacher

I am a private tutor of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 12 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! Your lessons will be tailored to your needs and goals - if you are a complete beginner, I will recommend a workbook based on your age (adult, high school, or middle school), and as we get to know each other better, you'll get targeted assistance with your weak points. Prepare to do some assigned homework every week, and to be studying vocabulary and writing daily.

Sensei O. has been a very good Japanese instructor for the past several months for me. He is very patient and understanding and does an amazing job at making the language very fun to learn. Since learning under Sensei O. I went from knowing very little Japanese to being able to read Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Thank you for being such an amazing teacher Sensei!
June K.
Sensei Yoshi is a great Japanese teacher as well as a nice person to talk to. My 13 yr old boy learned a lot from him and I can see and hear that he focuses fully from the beginning to the end of the virtual lesson. Highly recommended.
SAMUEL
Yoshi is a great instructor. Our 12 year old daughter is very into anime and wanted to learn Japanese. She was not prepared for the amount time this would take to learn. Yoshi was patient with her and she very much enjoyed the lesson that included her writing the names of her favorite anime characters.

I'm a first generation half-Japanese American currently living in Boston, MA! I spent my childhood surrounded by Japanese language and culture, followed by 7 years of formal language training, culminating in a Japanese language minor at the University of Washington. My thesis focused on the manifestation of gender in Japanese performing arts.

Growing up bilingual, I understand the difficulty of trying to juggle two languages! Whether you want to learn a new language, or simply want to brush up on your Japanese skills, I am always happy to be of help! Lessons include reading, writing, listening, translating literature, and speaking (polite, casual, and formal styles). I use the Genki and Tobira books and also like to introduce students to classic and modern Japanese literature as a way to enhance the students’ cultural knowledge. I welcome beginning and intermediate Japanese students!

We just signed up for additional lessons with Aimi. My granddaughter was reluctant to take online lessons. Aimi's teaching style and personality were the winning ticket. She is enthusiastic, her lessons are well organized, and she couldn't be nicer. Nicole looks forward to her lessons with Aimi, and we're so grateful and happy to have chosen her. Thank you!

My approach is to teach practical Japanese rather than” text book” Japanese, and I teach teenage and adult learners from beginner to intermediate level. I will be using text books/materials for grammatical study, but the main focus will be natural speaking skills. That way you will be ready to use your Japanese whenever you visit Japan, watch Japanese anime/manga or talk to Japanese people. Therefore, my lessons will be more conversational and there will be a lot of interactions.

The reason for valuing and focusing on "practical" skills is that although I was born and grew up in Japan, I have spent half of my life in other countries. And, since I have lived so long in non-Japanese speaking countries, I sincerely understand how hard it is to learn and communicate in a foreign language. So gaining and improving useful and practical language skills are very important for me.
