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!

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!

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

I am a native Japanese speaker from Tokyo. I have served as an instructor at the Greater Louisville Regional Japanese Saturday School, which provides courses entirely in Japanese. I have helped students prepare for JLPT (Japanese-Language Proficiency Test) and the Japan Kanji Aptitude Test (Kanji Kentei). Whether you want to improve your reading or writing skills, or you are simply looking for a conversation partner, let me know!

If you are not sure if Japanese lessons are for you, I recommend signing up for shorter lessons first and then switch to longer lessons if you enjoy it:-) I would love to hear from you. Thank you!

Very sweet and kind! Her notes were very detailed and covered a broad range of topics. I appreciate that she sent the notes to me after each lesson so I could review them before the next session.

Sunho has been very understanding of my level and works with me as I try to advance my level. She understands my questions and happily helps me to better understand the Korean language and culture! I have lived in Seoul for a while and have been studying Korean on and off for about a year; Sunho helped me advance my Korean through review and new information. I would definitely recommend Sunho. :D

"Really enjoying our lessons so far! Hikaru is very flexible, which has really worked out well for me. Since I live in Japan our schedules are very different, but we've been able to make it work nonetheless. She always has lesson plans put together and sends you the PDF's before each lesson. If you are curious about things not in the lesson plan, she's always happy to explore that with you as well. Most importantly, she makes you feel comfortable while you are trying to read and speak Japanese. Thank you, Hikaru!"
