I am a Japanese trainer with extensive knowledge in teaching Japanese as a second/third language.

I work closely with my students to identify their goals and objectives and develop tailored lessons for a more effective learning experience.

I believe that you will absorb more effectively when you enjoy learning and you are encouraged to learn!

I teach basic through advanced Japanese.
• Speaking, listening, reading, writing, Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji
• Conversational Japanese: casual/polite/formal
• Real-life applications to Japanese life and culture
• Nuance in Japanese
• Japanese way of thinking, trends, custom, traditional and contemporary Japanese culture

I highly recommend Wakana-san. I have been taking lessons with her for 3 years. I was a complete beginner and the only exposure I had to Japanese prior to that was from Japanese anime. I am glad that Wakana-san has been very patient with me and putting up with my interests in animation. Her lessons have allowed me to understand the differences between the words and structure used in real life vs. those used in animation. Her ability in explaining the grammar and structure to me has definitely worked much better than any textbooks I have read.

My first trip to Japan last year was enjoyable, thanks to the lessons I have had with Wakana-san. I was able to get around Tokyo without much communication issues.

My goal is to be able to speak and listen to Japanese in a business setting and will continue to have Wakana-san help me reaching this goal.

Arigatou gozaimasu!

Wakana has been working with our daughter since she was high school. She wanted to study abroad in Japan and needed to pass exams and interviews.
Wakana made an enormous difference and our daughter was not only learning quickly but showing marked improvement in her progress. She got great grades and receiving strong, positive feedback from her teachers. Wakana formed a wonderful working relationship with her. I cannot recommend Wakana highly enough!

Wakana is an incredibly gifted teacher!
I have been studying Japanese with her for almost ten years. She is bright, warm, flexible, and she has a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone interested in learning the language would be lucky to have her as a teacher!

Nina is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She makes learning Japanese fun but also serious. You are bound to learn a lot without realizing it. Each lesson is super fun and you will come away with more knowledge than you could have ever expected to learn on your own. Kamiterru!

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

I recently returned from spending 2 years in Japan. My current level is JLPT N4.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin

"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!"

"My experience with Clare has been great! Clare is extremely comfortable with Japanese and is just all around excellent at guiding me through lessons. She is extremely patient and absolutely willing to take it slow and focus on my own personal language goals with me. She's able to adapt and help me regardless of my progress moving faster or slower any given lesson. I don't feel any pressure, she is friendly and approachable, and her understanding of Japanese is thorough. She's an excellent teacher. If you plan to learn just how to speak, read, or write, or if you need a tutor to help with the studies you've already begun, Clare has you covered. Highly recommended."
