Private Japanese Teacher

My teaching style is flexible and I want to find learning methods that work best for you. Do you learn more when you talk a lot? Let's do a conversation class! Do you learn by memorizing rules? Let's dive into the mechanics of Japanese! I believe that the best way to learn a language is by being immersed in its culture and finding books, movies or music that will make you want to understand more about Japan. I promise to keep the lessons fun and fascinating!

About Alisa

Translation and language teaching has always been a strong interest of mine. Teaching a difficult language like Japanese and motivating students to keep up with learning can be a challenge, but one that I find rewarding and worthwhile. In terms of tutoring experience, I was a tutor and class assist

Alisa is an excellent teacher! I speak 3 other languages so ive had my share of teachers. She is so clear and makes this very dificult language seem possible!
Anna
Alisa is a fantastic teacher, I was able to learn a lot from her in a short period of time. Very attentive and engaging. Thanks to her I feel confident about my upcoming trip to Japan!
Isaac
Alisa did a great job teaching me Japanese vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and cultural context while I took Japanese 101/102! Since she has native fluency in both Japanese and English, Alisa was able to anticipate which aspects of learning Japanese might be particularly challenging for me, and gave excellent advice for handling those topics. A+!!!

Private Japanese Teacher

Hello! I'm a native Japanese speaker and experienced Japanese tutor. I have been tutoring Japanese since when I was in university as a TA for international students. I adopt the best teaching method and material for each student's needs and make sure that learning experience is fun and effective.

About Tomoko

When it comes to learning a language, I believe that correct grammatical understanding and the amount of output are equally important. Hence I focus on both grammar and speaking/writing practice during my lesson for the best result and you'll feel that your Japanese is improving! My previous Jap

The lesson moved at a comfortable pace. As this is our first intro to Japanese lessons, we had some difficulties with word pronunciation, but Tomoko was patient with us. She helped us break the words down and understand the sentence structures.
We look forward to our next lesson.

Private Japanese Teacher

Having attended American school on the weekdays and a total-immersion Japanese school on the weekends (and coming home to parents who only spoke Japanese), I was lucky enough to grow up completely bi-lingual. With over a decade of experience teaching in private and classroom settings, I make my lessons fun, high-energy, and tailor-made to each individual. Please feel free to send me a message, and let's learn some Japanese! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Laura was wonderful with my 5 year old girl, she was patient, energetic and her love for music showed through! My daughter has been very motivated to practice her songs to show "Ms Laura" next week. We look forward to working much more with Laura.

Amazing! Talented vocalist and pianist that communicates very well. Has great advice and wonderful personality. Great with kids.
Rafael Marinho
I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

Online Japanese Teacher

I grew up speaking both Japanese and English at home and understand the difficulty of trying to juggle both 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 will include reading, writing, listening, and speaking (both formal and colloquial 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!

"Masaki fosters a learning environment where he takes all of the hard work of learning a new language transforms it into fun. He has a bright personality, and the ability to not only translate the language, but the language in the context of the culture. He doesn't just teach you to speak Japanese, but how to be Japanese!

Talking to Masaki you would never know that English was not one of his native languages... I'm still shocked that he didn't begin learning until he was already an adult!

If you are wanting to learn Japanese, or if you are Japanese and you want to become as a native English speaker, you have found your guy!"
