Enjoy learning and without stress!
Hi, I'm Chieko. I'm Japanese and living in California and go back and forth between here and Tokyo. So I know the trend of Japan well. Furthermore, I have long working experience as manager in some major international companies in Japan. So I can help you communicate with Japanese workers using natural and effective language in Business Japanese. I know the business custom is very different among countries and Japanese one is a little complicated.. So, if you'd like to communicate with Japanese smoothly, please ask me what to do in a situation you encounter. I have successfully passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in October 2016.
About Chieko N.

I am a native Japanese speaker. I'm now living in the USA but also in Japan and go back and forth here and Tokyo. So I know the Japanese trend well from comics to businesses. I have long working experience as engineering manager at some major international companies in japan. I know it is difficult for you to communicate with Japanese workers because there are a lot of business custom differences between Japan and other countries. If you feel something wrong in your communication with Japanese, please let me know it. I believe I can give you some tips on each specific situation. I have the teaching credential of general science for middle and high school students certified by the Japanese University and I have successfully passed the Japanese language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in Oct 2016. Regarding the textbooks, I will adjust the textbooks and materials used in my lessons according to the student's level, requirements and goals. I have many textbooks and workbooks for the Japanese language learners which I bought in Japan recently. They include textbooks for the Japanese language proficiency Test (JLPT) N1 -N5.

Had a wonderful online lesson! She is very thorough when explaining words and topics and it is easy to ask questions with her!

My son (15) has been taking lessons with Chieko-san for 2 years now. He has learned a great deal from her (it seems more than I leaned in my 3 years in HS and college). She sends me regular progress reports and was even willing to learn about the American grading system, make his studies more engaging with homework, and grade him so we could count it for HS credit (we homeschool). She is all around amazing!
