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. Lessons are online only.
About Akira K.

I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan, graduated from the literature department of Waseda University, 50 years young. I realize learning another language is tough and requires patience a lot from my experience in learning English. I have been teaching various kinds of student from 6 years old to over 60, including student with autism, dysgraphia and dyslexia, intellectual disability and memory impairment though I am not a specialist in that area. Every student different. I have my own curriculum and also make worksheets for each student’s interest too. I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. I try to listen and understand what my student is interested in and which direction she/he wants to go. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions. I am sure that lessons gonna be fun! Lessons are online only. 🌟Please keep in mind 24h Cancellation Policy: Important. 🙇🙇🙇 In case of cancellation or rescheduling, please let me know no later than 24h before lessons. Otherwise the lesson fee is fully charged.

Akira is really knowledgeable and thorough. He's patient. It's been nice having someone look over my written kana. I really appreciate that he is invested in your learning.

My kid really enjoys working with Akira. He said, "Akira is really cool". What else could you possibly need in a review? Hire him!
