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.

Read "About Me" below or click the "Ask A Question" button for more information. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Private Japanese Teacher

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.

Lessons are online only.

Akira is a great teacher. I really appreciate that he explains everything in depth when I don’t understand the grammar. I also appreciate that he corrects me every time I mispronounce something.
