Learn Japanese with an experienced teacher who makes your goals their goals - whatever they are!
Japanese is my pet subject, and I am passionate about both learning and teaching it! Whether you're about to start learning yourself or are already learning and looking for extra help, congratulations! I have been teaching Japanese for over a decade to a variety of students, such as college students and military preparing to be stationed in Okinawa. Teaching Japanese is a particular passion of mine, because even though I wanted to learn as a high-schooler I had to wait until my sophomore year of college to find a teacher. Japanese learning should be far more easily accessible, and that's what I'm here for! Whatever your goal is - to learn Japanese for professional purposes, private purposes, or even just to watch your favorite TV programs without subtitles - I make it my personal goal to help you achieve it. I look forward to helping you succeed with Japanese!
