I am a native Japanese speaker with a Japanese teaching credential. All ages and levels are welcomed! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I am also qualified to tutor graduate students (Master’s and PhD) doing their thesis.
I believe when we learn other languages, it is important to learn their culture, history, etc. for better understanding. I’ve learned Japanese drums, how to wear Kimono, Tea and flower ceremonies so that we can explore Japanese culture more than just learning the language!

Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I've been helping my friends and taught Japanese online.
I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

About Sayaka

Nice to meet you! I'm a native Japanese who have been in US for over 10 years. I have taught Japanese to my friends and online. I am a very patient and a natural listener, so I will listen to your goal, observe your level of Japanese and customize your lessons to be as efficient as possible within

I took my first class with Sayaka a couple of days ago, I'm glad I got to start my Japanese learning process with her. We had a very good first class, she answered to all of my questions and gave me good advice about what should I be starting with.

Sayaka has been very patient and helpful with Japanese lessons. She has customized the lessons to fit me and helped me learn what is useful for my interactions and job. Thank you Sayaka!

Sayaka is a wonderful instructor! I cannot recommend her enough! She is so thoughtful and genuinely wants you to learn and improve. She even surprised me at our previous lesson with material that was relevant to my job! I can't wait to take more classes with her!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"This is only the second online lesson that I've ever had in Japanese. My first review that I gave to my former teacher was five stars. This one though, If I can give more than that I would but unfortunately five stars is the limit. Whoever is taking, or considering taking Japanese lessons with Aimi wont be disappointed. I'm in my 50's and Aimi would do anything to make sure that I would grasp the material. I'm 100 percent sure that she is equally outstanding teacher with younger students...And you, whoever you might be out there reading this review and willing to try learning Japaneses, go ahead and schedule a lesson with her; whether you are adult or young I'm confident Aimie will be the perfect fit."

"Learning a new language on my own was tough and daunting, but after several lessons with Miku, I finally got the guidance I needed! I went from knowing basically nothing to finally building a basic foundation in Japanese reading, writing, and speaking! And I’m getting better with every lesson! She definitely lets me keep it at my own pace and helps to keep me engaged by answering all my curiosities about the culture as well. I hope to continue to take lessons with Miku even after my foundation has been built. There’s just so much to learn and her lessons make it easier to take in Japanese and help me to fully understand all the details. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS INSTRUCTOR!!!"
