About Taro
Hi. I'm a native Japanese speaker from Kobe. I was born and raised there and speak both standard Japanese and Kobe dialect. I'm an expert at bringing one's overall language level from the beginner to intermediate. I will assist you more with English first if you're a beginner and gradually transition to using only Japanese as you get closer to an intermediate level.

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Taro Sensei for about 5 months. He is a very patient and organized instructor. He designs the teaching material based on my specific level and goals. I enjoy the fun conversation with him during every lesson. My Japanese skill has improved gradually as time goes by. Thank you Taro Sensei.

Taguchi Sensei has helped improve my Japanese tremendously! Not only is he able to accommodate my sometimes crazy schedule, but he's very patient while learning, will go in-depth on topics I don't quite understand and will provide exercises for me on those topics. He's personal, so we use real-time situations from my life to practice with (describing my day at work, where my cats are, what I ate, etc.)

When I visted Japan this year, I owe it to him that I was able to have the amazing experiences I did. Because of him, I was able to understand the language, the culture, and have the confidence in speaking with locals.

I appriciate all the help and encourgaement that he's provided.
ありがとうございます田口先生!

Taro is a great Japanese instructor! He’s constantly analyzing and reevaluating the best possible learning methods for each particular student. I’ve only taken 3 lessons so far but I’m quite confident in his ability to help me reach fluency in Japanese, so long as I am patient and disciplined 🤔😅

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.

The Japanese language and everything about Japan has been a central part of my existence for most of my life. As I mastered Japanese I went through the same problems you will and that's why I can accelerate your learning speed. I know strategies and ways that helped me navigate this tricky language so you reach your goals fast. I am looking forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

About Aaron
Japanese and everything about Japan is my passion. I first started learning Japanese in high school and studied abroad in Japan through AFS for a year while living with a host family. While I was there I passed level 2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), a first for any AFS student at the time. I went on to attend the Japanese language school Yamasa in Aichi, Prefecture and then passed level 1 of the JLPT at age 20. Afterward, I attended Nanzan University where I graduated from the Business Management Department in 2009. Since graduating I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter for 9 years.

Through my experiences learning Japanese and living in Japan I can answer any questions you may have about the language or culture. I enjoy teaching everyone from beginner's to those studying advanced Japanese to enter a
university or work in Japan. Unlike a native Japanese speaker, I am able to systematically explain grammar and other technical areas in a way that will make sense. You can then quickly utilize these techniques to accelerate your own learning.

Each lesson will be tailored to the specific area you would like to study and improve. If you would like to work on conversational Japanese for instance, I can teach you informal Japanese so you can have conversations with friends or dive deeper into a hobby you may have such as anime, J-pop or video games. Learning in a fun and relaxing atmosphere is important and will help you learn quicker and retain information.

Hey guys !! Whether you are a lover of Anime, Jpop or need to know Japanese for business or just to show your friends , you have reached the right person !! :) I have 15 years of experience when it comes to the Japanese Language. And I absolutely love it !! I can proudly say that I am proficient in the language. I can speak fluently , understand and write fluently in Furigana (Hiragana and Katakana) I've learned from courses, friends, programs, music, immersion, books etc, you name it I've done it and has had major success. I will teach in a fun and interactive way and we will build up from the fundamentals of words to complete sentences. You WILL be proficient and comfortable in Japanese in no time !

About Anthony
I have 12 years experience in teaching Japanese as a tutor. Occupation wise I am a Electrical Engineer Major, Entrepreneur, Author, Motivational Coach and Language Enthusiast. I am a firm believer that we really can do anything we put our minds too. My main focus and purpose is to HELP and add VALUE to as many lives as possible. I am solely interested in the progression and success of the student. It is my duty for me to teach you as much information on the Language in the most comprehensive way possible.

I'm originally from Long Island City, New York. I had a teacher of Japanese descent and she always brought her culture to the classroom. I was 10 years old, and I used to ask her questions about the way she would dress and her mannerisms and she would tell me anything I wanted to know. The culture is where it began for me, but the lang
uage is what took me on a whole different level of mentality and understanding.

I began learning the language at the age of 12 from a Japanese friend. At age 14 I learned from online courses and music, it was so intriguing to me that I began self study. At age 17 is when my listening skills began to kick in. I was understanding not only music but some Anime, this is when it really got fun lol. At age 20, is when I reached advance speaking proficiency and was able to understand LIVE dialoge from Natives. I am now 27. I am excited to teach and speak fluent japanese to you guys so you can hear it in it's native form.

So Anthony why should I choose you to be my teacher?

#1 I am literate in Japanese, I speak proper and perfect English so you will understand me lol.

#2 I will talk to you in a relatable way, so you will not feel like you're in a boring lecture, Japanese is an exciting language, so you do not need to feel like you're preached to.

#3 I will make this fun and interactive, keeping you engaged from beginning to end, wanting to know more. Most importantly I will give you as much information in the time given, so you can leave knowing your money is well spent.

#4 Lastly I can teach you formal and informal Japanese. I will give you all the key components to the Japanese Language without the fluff. In most language instruction there are key things to know mixed with fluff. This is what makes students lose interest or get confused. There will be no fluff in my class, everything that I teach you will be a key component to your language learning success.

So what are you waiting for ? Your success starts here !! Let's do this !! :)

I just returned from three years abroad in Japan. Anything from the basics to a Japanese conversation partner is within my ability. I’m certified N3, so anything within the scope of general knowledge of your average Japanese person is what I’m capable of. I am comfortable with Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. For more advanced students, we can also go over more nuanced and cultural aspects of the language.

About Danielle
こんにちは!それともようこそ、こちらへ。
Want to be able to finally watch anime without the subtitles or waiting for the dubbed versions to come out? Dream of visiting Japan one day but afraid of the language barrier? Interested in a cultural approach with someone who’s actually spent time living and speaking with native Japanese speakers? With someone who has experience teaching another language no less? Look no further! Whether you’re taking your first steps in learning the language, or you’re looking for someone to speak with one on one, I’d love to meet! 宜しくお願いします!
