今日は and welcome to learning Japanese, I have a bachelor's degree in Japanese language and culture from the Ohio State University, and I have tutored Japanese before and it really isn't as intimidating as it looks. I've learned through many ways and I have many many resources that I will gladly share with you so you can learn on your own, whether you're a beginner or advanced, I can direct you to how to become very fluent with all my knowledge and resources combined. Also as a bonus I will teach you some kanji calligraphy if interested as well.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

Japanese is my pet subject, and I am passionate about both learning and teaching it! Whether you're about to start learning yourself or are already learning and looking for extra help, congratulations! I have been teaching Japanese for two years to a variety of students, such as college students and military preparing to be stationed in Okinawa. Teaching Japanese is a particular passion of mine, because even though I wanted to learn as a high-schooler I had to wait until my sophomore year of college to find a teacher. Japanese learning should be far more easily accessible, and that's what I'm here for! Whatever your goal is, to learn Japanese for professional purposes, private purposes, or even just to watch your favorite TV programs without subtitles, I make it my personal goal to help you achieve it. I look forward to helping you succeed with Japanese!

About Emily
Howdy! I have an undergraduate degree in Classics and an MA in ancient history, and I have been teaching/tutoring since 2009. I know first-hand how much hard work can achieve, but my experience in teaching has also taught me that the work doesn't have to be so hard when a student has experienced, dedicated help. That's what I'm here for! I have done both paid and volunteer teaching, and I have worked both for myself and for a university. I have taught a wide range of students - ADD students, injured students unable to attend normal classes, struggling students - in a variety of environments. I have experience teaching to groups and individuals; face-to-face, chat-room style, and via video conferencing. I teach language because I have a passion for it, and my goal with my students, whether they are learning a new language or furthering the
ir native English skills, is always to help them achieve their own language learning goals. I look forward to helping you achieve yours!

Indianapolis, IN

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

I am a Japanese teacher specializing in teaching intermediate and advanced levels. Although all levels are welcome, usually my students are highly motivated college students or adults who wish to study or work in Japan. I look forward to working with you!

[Academic Japanese, Business Japanese, Conversational Japanese, Japanese Writing, JLPT preparation]

About Erika
Minasan konnichiwa! My name is Erika. I was born and grew up in Saitama Pref., Japan. For those of you who don’t know where it is, Saitama is Tokyo’s neighbor to the north. The movie “Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro)” directed by Hayao Miyazaki is actually based on hills in my hometown!

I moved to San Diego, CA in 2013 after I received my first MA in Literature. I went to San Diego State University and earned my second MA in Applied Linguistics in 2015. I also earned Advanced Certificate in TESL/TEFL from SDSU, which helped me reassess my perspectives on teaching and learning. I have been teaching Japanese both in Japan and the US for almost 10 years, and currently teach at SDSU and UC San Diego Extension besides private lessons as well as business/medical translating. I always enjoy teaching and love helping my students learn new
culture!

***Lesson Details***

All levels are welcome, though many of my students are intermediate-advanced levels. I assess your proficiency level based on my experience as a teacher and a linguist. According to your learning goals, I tailor a teaching plan so it meets your needs and objectives of studying Japanese. What would you like to learn, the language itself or the culture as well? Here are the main lessons I offer to students:

- Conversational Japanese (business, academic)
- Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) preparation
- Writing support (business, academic, or personal)

Conversational Japanese lessons are aimed at improving your listening and speaking skills while working on increasing your vocabulary. We also review grammar points if necessary. This will help you pick up cultural and social cues in everyday conversation. The JLPT preparation and writing support courses are mainly for advanced students, who wish to achieve higher goals. The test is taken not only by students who want to study in Japan but also by people who want to measure their progress in Japanese. It’s very useful for you to set a learning goal, so you have direction in your studies, motivation to continue, and measurable results that you can check to review your progress.

For all lessons, I choose teaching materials that students would be interested such as Japanese News websites or short videos. If you have a textbook you’ve been working on and are going to learn with me regularly, I would make lesson plans based on it too. Basically each student receives their own lesson plans.

***PLEASE READ!!***
- 48 hours notice for cancellations and reschedule.
- If you would like to have a lesson outside of the listed hours, please let me know. I will try to accommodate your schedule.

Learning a language is exciting yet requires patience. If you're a total beginner, within the first few lessons, you'll be able to speak conversational phrases with correct pronunciations and as time goes on you'll be able to write Hiragana characters and understand some Kanji's. I use skill appropriate text books, audio and later on include cultural field trips to give students a chance to practice and deepen their knowledge. All ages and skill levels are welcome and I can't wait to meet you!

About Sayaka
My name is Sayaka and I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. I've been a Japanese teacher, an English teacher, a professional translator and interpreter for corporations and love to teach my native language and culture to aspiring students like you! I'm also a certified fitness instructor and passionate about guiding people towards a healthier lifestyle by providing safe, effective and enjoyable exercises.

I have a BA in Journalism, am ACE certified in fitness, CPR/AED certified by American Heart Association. I'm well prepared, patient and attentive to help my students make progress at each lesson. I look forward to meeting you and guiding you to a journey of new learning!

Hello, my name is Maxmillion. I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Guam, and my parents are both from Okinawa, Japan. I grew up speaking both English and Japanese, and spent many summers attending school in Okinawa. I am comfortable teaching conversational Japanese, hiragana, katakana, basic kanji, and I can also help with proper pronunciation. I currently offer online lessons and in home lessons, but can also meet up locally at a coffee shop, library, etc. よろしくお願いします!

About Maxmillion
I am very proud to have been born and raised on the lovely island of Guam! I have been playing guitar, bass, and drums since I was 15, and have had a passion for music since I can remember. In 2007, I earned my associates degree in music from Musicians Institute Hollywood. I have had my music placed in popular television shows, such as “The Real World” and “Road Rules," as well as the film “The Tested.”

I previously played guitar in a project called Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind. We were featured as the musical guest on the popular late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in January 2014. We were also featured on the local television programs "Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" and "New Day Northwest." We are also featured on YouTube as sponsored artists on EMGtv and Blue Microphones. I also have had the opportunity to share the stage with
Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayer, Don Felder, Brandi Carlile, Russell Ferrante, Travis Carlton, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Guitar is my main focus, but I am also comfortable teaching bass and ukulele. I love all styles, and specialize in rock, blues, funk, pop, reggae, metal, and acid jazz. I have experience teaching students of all ages (as young as 4 years old) and am currently an active teacher. I am also fluent in Japanese.
