Hello! How is your learning going so far?

Since you are looking at my page, I’m guessing that you are looking for a teacher who can help you! If you are trying to learn how to speak Japanese, it's your lucky day!

In my lesson, we will be talking a lot!

Are you a shy person or a beginner? Don't worry! I will help you!

I believe that talking is the most effective and fastest way to learn a new language.
When I was in school, I was so bad at studying, but when I put myself in another country and forced myself only to speak English and not make any Japanese friends, my English skills improved in such a short amount of time.

I would like to use my effective learning experience to teach here.

Kids don't learn their native language by studying; they learn naturally by listening and speaking.

So we will be talking lots during our lessons. Of course, I do not expect you to speak perfect Japanese! I know that you will make lots of mistakes; we will have a safe learning environment, and we will laugh lots!

LEARNING SHOULD BE FUN, so I always try to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible!

I can't wait to have a lesson with you!

About Chiaki K.

I'm Chiaki! I was born and grew up in Japan.

I think you will be surprised to see how happy and positive I am during our lessons.

I am not trying to overreact or anything, but I get super happy when you do well because I think of my students as my learning partners. When you do well or accomplish your goal, I get super excited for you!

After I graduated from high school, I went to college in the USA. My major was early childhood education, and I worked at a preschool after college.

There were 13 cute American students in my class!
I have also worked at a language school in America teaching Japanese, so I have experience teaching English and Japanese.

Recently I finished training with a medical interpreter school. A medical interpreter must translate complex medical information to patients who speak a different language. Interpreters help ensure a complete understanding of essential information between medical staff and their patients.

I love anime, cooking, working out at the gym and talking, so if you have similar interests, we will certainly get along :)

I am studying Japanese with Chiaki for more than 2 years on an other platform. So, when she told me that she decide to move here, I naturally supported her. Her class are fun. I am currently a very hard student but she never give up on me. She just adapted to give me the most interesting class. I nearly want to say that you shouldn't take her class because that makes my life harder to find a lesson time with her.

I've been taking lessons with Chiaki for over a year and it has been a lot of fun. There is a lot of talking in her lessons which makes it more interesting and easier to remember compared to reading from a textbook.

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Chiaki-san for about two years now. She is always prepared and enthusiastic at each lesson. Chiaki-san is friendly, funny and never makes you feel self conscious if you make an error. She is very interested in me being successful in learning Japanese.

Chiaki is a fantastic Japanese language instructor, and also a wonderful ambassador for Japanese culture.

I am interested in learning the language, but also very curious about what living in Japan is really like - the type of thing the textbooks just can't teach.

Chiaki's vibrant personality brings the language lessons to life; beyond just grammar and vocabulary, Chiaki brings a unique point of view in a wide variety of interests; she is exactly the type of person I would like to talk with should I ever get to visit Japan.

Chiaki is the type of teacher for students looking for more than just the textbook - someone who opens a window into what life in Japan is really like.

Highest recommendations!

Chiaki-せんせいのれっすんは たのしくておもしりいです。

Arigatou gozaimashita, Chiaki-sensei

I have taken Japanese lessons with multiple teachers, and Chiaki is by far the best teacher I have had! She always keeps the conversation moving and is extremely encouraging and patient with her students. Taking lessons with her has greatly improved and continues to improve my speaking and listening abilities. I highly recommend her!

I have taken over 40 lessons from Chiaki sensei and she is great! She is very patient and will keep you engaged. If you are looking for a teacher with high energy that can create a fun atmosphere, I’d highly recommend Chiaki sensei. She’s has lots of teaching experience and is worth every penny!

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Chiaki for almost two years. She is, by far, the best language tutor I have ever had. She's always on time, communicates very quickly, and is honestly a very sweet person. Her lessons are very organized and she has kept detailed notes since our very first lesson. She has helped me pass the N5, and is helping me reach the N4 level at my pace. I cannot recommend Chiaki enough as a tutor.
