Experienced Japanese tutor available for eager students who are new to Japanese or want to strengthen their skills! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of grammar, cultural understanding and essential vocabulary. I specialize in every day Japanese, typically use the Genki books, and also have audio, movie/show clips, workbooks and other valuable resources available to use during lessons.

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!

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

Private Japanese Teacher

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.

Since I'm absolute beginner in Japanese, I found Paul to be the perfect fit for me. If you are young or adult (me) I would highly recommend taking classes with Paul at least for your beginning classes. I'm sure he would be the perfect fit for you too.

Learn to speak and read Japanese, have fun, and get to speak with a native Japanese speaker who only recently moved to the US.

I was born and raised in Hiroshima prefecture, Japan. I have a long history of teaching English to Japanese students at the Junior and High School levels, and use my skills now to teach English speakers about Japanese language.

About Yae

My family was enthusiastic about international cultures, and so I became an English teacher in Japan. I taught English to Junior High School students in Osaka for more than 10 years. During this time I realized the importance of experiencing other cultures first-hand, so I went to the US and stud

Mrs Yae isn't only an extremely careful, thoughtful and well prepared instructor, she is also able to offer an insight into the culture which helps a lot when learning a language that isn't commonly used in this part of the world. As an ESL instructor myself, I appreciate Mrs Yae's techniques when it comes to explaining some of the most complicated aspects of the language, I highly recommend her services.

"Masaki fosters a learning environment where he takes all of the hard work of learning a new language transforms it into fun. He has a bright personality, and the ability to not only translate the language, but the language in the context of the culture. He doesn't just teach you to speak Japanese, but how to be Japanese!

Talking to Masaki you would never know that English was not one of his native languages... I'm still shocked that he didn't begin learning until he was already an adult!

If you are wanting to learn Japanese, or if you are Japanese and you want to become as a native English speaker, you have found your guy!"
