Hi My name is Seiko. I am an experienced Japanese tutor teaching locally in Silicon vally/Bay area, CA. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learning the language but also strengthening your communication skills in understanding of its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience of reviewing and proofreading resume and essays as well as AP/JLPT test preparations.

Seiko-San was very cooperative and encouraging during my first online lesson. I believe it was her first time teaching online and she did well. I am really happy today with my experience, she gave me some nice compliments. I look forward to the next lesson.

Seiko walks with me every lesson through the "Japanese for busy people" book and I like how she asks me to go through exercises in japanese so I can get used to listening. We also spend time enriching vocabulary.

I just started my lesson with Toshi Sensei yesterday. He is such a patient and nice teacher. He helped me to understand more about the pronunciation. I was having a really fun time in learning Japanese, and I am looking forward to have my next lesson.

Toshi is teaching my 13 year old. It was evident during the first lesson that he was prepared and organized. He was also patient and kind and as a result my daughter is looking forward to his next lesson.

Hi, I'm Chieko. I'm Japanese and living in California but go back and forth between here and Tokyo. So I know the trend of Japan well. Furthermore, I have long working experience as manager in some major international companies in Japan. So I can help you communicate with Japanese workers using natural and effective language. I know the business custom is very different between countries and Japan's one is a little complicated.. So, if you'd like to get along with Japanese, please ask me what to do in a situation you encounter.
I have successfully passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in October 2016.

Chieko-san is a very effective and very kind teacher. Whenever I was stuck and giving a wrong answer, she could help me out of the misconception or forgetfulness that I had stumbled into, in a very positive way. This means as a student you can keep moving forward at your own pace, make progress, and avoid feeling discouraged. We each must keep trying our best, as we have learned to say, ganbarimasu !

Chieko was sweet, patient, and organized. I felt very comfortable asking questions ranging from definitions to pronunciations to cultural implications. The first lesson focused on assessing my level, so I think it will only get better going forward.

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

Having attended American school on the weekdays and a total-immersion Japanese school on the weekends (and coming home to parents who only spoke Japanese), I was lucky enough to grow up completely bi-lingual. With over a decade of experience teaching in private and classroom settings, I make my lessons fun, high-energy, and tailor-made to each individual. Please feel free to send me a message, and let's learn some Japanese! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

We started working with Claire in late 2016 at the age of 14. It has worked out great! She is patient, professional and organized. She keeps us appraised of his progress.
