About Mari

Welcome to my music studio! This will be a fun, incredible way to start or continue your music instruction. I have been a private violin and piano instructor since 1991. I took a break in 2005 while my kids were little. Now that they have grown up a bit, I am so excited to come back to this!

Mari was an awesome instructor, and very kind.

I absolutely loved learning from Mari for my piano lessons! As an adult learner, I felt like my brain doesn't work as fast as it used to, so learning a new instrument was difficult, but Mari completely caters each lesson to my learning speed and maximized my abilities. She takes into accounts the areas and types of music I wanted to learn and helped me to achieve being able to play that type of music. I also loved and appreciated that she works around my busy work schedule and accommodating lessons when plans change throughout the week. I would highly recommend Mari as a music teacher to anyone interested in learning a new instrument at all ages!

Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I've been helping my friends and taught Japanese online.
I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

About Sayaka

Nice to meet you! I'm a native Japanese who have been in US for over 10 years. I have taught Japanese to my friends and online. I am a very patient and a natural listener, so I will listen to your goal, observe your level of Japanese and customize your lessons to be as efficient as possible within

I took my first class with Sayaka a couple of days ago, I'm glad I got to start my Japanese learning process with her. We had a very good first class, she answered to all of my questions and gave me good advice about what should I be starting with.

Sayaka has been very patient and helpful with Japanese lessons. She has customized the lessons to fit me and helped me learn what is useful for my interactions and job. Thank you Sayaka!

Sayaka is a wonderful instructor! I cannot recommend her enough! She is so thoughtful and genuinely wants you to learn and improve. She even surprised me at our previous lesson with material that was relevant to my job! I can't wait to take more classes with her!

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!

First lesson with Mr Park was really good. I have never used an online tutor before so I didn’t know what to expect. He did very well in assessing my current level and pushing thru material. Even limited self study he still covered things that I didn’t know that was pertinent to the language and I appreciate the way he explains things. The language is not a 1-1 and Mr Park did well in explaining how it converts over.

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

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.
Jessica
Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.
Marcellin
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.

"The best instructor I have ever had in my life.

As it states on her profile, she is well-versed in all levels of Japanese language and culture. She is extremely good at developing a lesson plan specific to each student's needs, and can use a wide variety of media to help each student - again, depending on what each student would like to do. Whether you want to learn how to speak for a trip, or how to navigate the Japanese business environment at a fluent and competent level, she will have the best instruction. To say that she is adaptive is an understatement. You will absolutely come out of every class feeling that you have learned something meaningful and useful towards your language goals. Jessie will work with you to develop a schedule that will work with your life outside of class, and is extremely easy to work with regarding schedule changes.

Jessie managed to get me from a beginner level, to just starting on N2 material, in a shorter time than I could have imagined. She has an extremely high level of motivation and excitement that shows through in every lesson.

I highly recommend Jessie for any level due to her adaptability, high skill level, and wide span of knowledge."

"I have been enjoying my lessons so far and I've been learning a lot. Clare is good about giving me lots of real-life information that a textbook doesn't really explain, which I enjoy very much and find helpful! She was very good at handling my expectations and concerns the first day and having good analogies to help me understand things. She has been very good about working with my chaotic schedule as well, which I appreciate very much. I look forward to my future classes."

"Learning a new language on my own was tough and daunting, but after several lessons with Miku, I finally got the guidance I needed! I went from knowing basically nothing to finally building a basic foundation in Japanese reading, writing, and speaking! And I’m getting better with every lesson! She definitely lets me keep it at my own pace and helps to keep me engaged by answering all my curiosities about the culture as well. I hope to continue to take lessons with Miku even after my foundation has been built. There’s just so much to learn and her lessons make it easier to take in Japanese and help me to fully understand all the details. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS INSTRUCTOR!!!"
