Overview

Hello, my name is Kaoru N.
I'm originally from Tokyo Japan and just graduated from Berklee college of music in 2013 as dual major of "Classic Composition" and "Contemporary Writing & Production" major.
Back in my home, I taught Karate to kids since 1996 to 2001.
I have tutored Japanese language and guitar, sometime even Karate to whoever interested in those things. I hope you are the next one who I can teach.
I have very good materials for learning Japanese and guitar that I use in my coaching all the time.
Let's start from figuring out what's your goal so I can help you out to achieve the goal.

Just had my first lesson and Kaoru was very knowledgable, patient and had the chops to back it up.
Can't wait for my next lesson, thanks!

Kaoru has been a great Japanese teacher. I am taking the classes online with a friend of mine and the best part is that we were able to work it out with Kaoru and we have been able to take it together. He is a very funny person and he tries his best at explaining and making the class enjoyable. After taking a couple of classes with him I have been able to start reading and have a better understanding of language. I would recommend anybody who is planning to take Japanese lessons to take it with Kaoru.
