Private Japanese Teacher

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan living in Toluca Lake LA, graduated from the literature department of Waseda University in Tokyo Japan. I realize learning another language is tough and requires patience a lot from my experience for learning English.I had learned English for many years in Japan

Toshi is a great teacher that not only teaches regular Japanese, but about Japanese cultures and things you may not know or find in textbooks. Out of any of the Japanese teachers, I recommend him.

This review is an update from our last review 2 years ago...

2.5 years ago we were fortunate enough to find Toshi to teach our son Japanese. Our son started out as a high school student wanting to understand anime and his video games in their original language. Our son is legally blind so a talented and creative teacher was needed. Since then he has enjoyed learning the language with Toshi so much that he has formed professional goals to become a translator. Our son is now heading to university in the fall and will be majoring in Japanese Studies. The program includes a semester abroad in Japan and an internship with a major Japanese corporation. His goal is long term so he will continue to work with Toshi alongside his college studies to reach his goals. Toshi has always taken our son seriously and has adjusted his teaching program as his goals expanded. Toshi’s lessons are still a highlight of the week and it continuously surprises us to hear our son speak the language so beautifully. Our long term investment of lessons with Toshi has been very successful and such a positive experience. We highly recommend Toshi!

Yoshi is a great instructor. Our 12 year old daughter is very into anime and wanted to learn Japanese. She was not prepared for the amount time this would take to learn. Yoshi was patient with her and she very much enjoyed the lesson that included her writing the names of her favorite anime characters.
William R.
So far I've had 5 lessons with Oyamada Sensei, and reading Japanese has already become much easier. We do NHK easy news, and I practice on my own and have gotten much faster at it. Looking forward to keeping going with them. Highly recommend!

"Sensei seems to really enjoy teaching. As both a native speaker and a longtime resident of the US, she is able to bridge the cultures in a way that many instructors would not be able to. I have been studying with her for over six months - both in a private and college setting - and I feel that I would be hard pressed to find a better teacher. In a college setting, she is very strict and covers a lot of material in a short period of time, and those who take her courses must be prepared to expend significant time and energy for success, but those who can keep up are well equipped to continue their studies with pretty much any other teacher or course."
