I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

You'll be learning basic conversations you could have in japanese, as well as learning how to write and read. It will start out mostly in English, but as we progress our conversations and lessons will be more and more in Japanese.

I am a native speaker and former school teacher in Japan. Learning is fun-that's my motto. When you achieve your goals, you enjoy a feeling of accomplishment, right? I want to help you to achieve your goals. My lesson starts from finding what students really need to learn. Understanding student is the key to success. I am very strong in teaching proper Japanese, including reading and writing Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji with fun way. Also, casual, informal, practical Japanese too.

As a non-native speaker of Japanese, I understand the struggles that an English speaker faces when learning Japanese and can alleviate the problems. I will provide my understanding and comparisons that are easier to comprehend than dense textbooks. I have studied Japanese for 4 years and am currently working on it as my major in college with a GPA of 4.0. I absolutely love explaining the detailed nuances that Japanese has to offer and would love to teach you!

About Todd

I am currently a Sophomore at the University of Massachusetts Amherst studying foreign languages, economics, and music. I love finding new ways to express myself, whether it's with Japanese or Chinese, or even with some good old Rock and Roll. I love cracking jokes and making people laugh while the

You will learn how to speak (and write if you are interested!) Japanese while you also learn about the culture and traveling tips. Lessons can be customized and catered to your needs and goals but mainly we can focus on having conversations and learning correct pronunciations while gaining useful words and phrases. I’m a native speaker but I have been living in the US for more than 20 years. As far as my teaching background goes, I was a teacher for Saturday Japanese School total of 10 years in the past and I also did tutoring while I attended my university. From my personal language learning experience, (I learned to speak Spanish also!) I can share my tricks on learning language faster and retaining it. Let’s get started!

About Rina

Hi! I am a native Japanese speaker and I have over 15 years of teaching experience. I speak English fluently so I know some difficulty for some non-Japanese speakers but I can help on pronunciation, mannerism, etc. If you are looking for a native speaker to converse and polish your speaking skil

"Would 100% reccomend Aimi ใ›ใ‚“ใ›ใ„ to any student looking to learn everything from conversational phrases/basics to someone looking to becoming fluent in the language.

Having almost no experience with the language, within the first 5 weeks of learning from Aimi ใ›ใ‚“ใ›ใ„, I have made tremendous strides in learning Japanese, so much so that I've decided to continue taking lessons beyond the first 5.

During each lesson, in addition to having a well structured learning plan, Aimi is amazing at explaining the cultural origins or words/phrases as well as some of the more nuanced aspects of the language. In addition to this, she also is very responsive over text, and is able to answer any questions I might have throughout the week (outside of lessons).

Lastly, I think the best part of these lessons are that they are fun, instant feedback and learning goals oriented, and that she changes the lesson/matches the pace the student is trying to/learning at.

She also always takes pauses to make sure I have everything written down as well as time to ask questions and explain her answers. Her teaching method is understandable and paced but is also challenging. Great teacher and I am excited for more lessons."

"Great teacher! Uses established course textbooks to guide the classes, yet adds custom lessons tailored to your needs or focus. Hiromi makes sure to challenge you on your trouble spots by preparing custom focused instruction. Within my first set of 5 lesson my skills improved dramatically. Even without being able to speak fluently, I could understand the large majority of my business meetings in Japan. In less than 2 months I have been able to learn correct, day to day conversational speaking that covers a variety of subjects and life necessities. Highly recommended!"

The 9 Most Popular Kanji Tattoos

When you're taking Japanese lessons, you will be introduced to the three different writing systems: hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Although kanji is generally considered the most difficult to learn, because of the symbols, it's the most popular writing system among non-Japanese speakers. Kanji consists of thousands of characters which were derived from the Chinese writing system. Because of the way they look, and the fact that they can convey a meaningful message in a limited amount of ch …
