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.

About Akira K.

First of all, I teach my lesson at a coffee shop or my studio for being in person, or a remote lesson online is available.

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 in a way for taking sever examination.

I graduated Musicians Institute Technology / GIT Hollywood. Guitarist and film composition are my profession too. I love to talk about music and movie with you. I am sure the lessons with you are so much fun.

I had Akira for Japanese tutoring and he was incredibly thorough, kind, and a wonderful teacher. I learned more from him in an hour than I’ve learned in tens of hours of self-study. He was kind, thorough, and overall just great. Looking forward to continuing our tutoring work!

I’m glad to go back to my Japanese studies and this really helps me though I do need to make some time for me to work on my Japanese studies but yeah this is amazing that I’m back to my Japanese studies.
