I can help you with conversation skills, correct pronunciation and proper grammar. I usually use a textbook called ‘Genki’ for my lessons. I provide the textbook so you don’t have to buy it. With ‘Genki’ we can work on various grammar points, vocabulary building, situational role playing, pronunciation, and plenty of exercises to improve your listening and speaking skills.

I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that you can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at your own pace.

About Miku O.

Hi everyone! My name is Miku. I was born in Hawaii and raised in Japan. I graduated from Dokkyo university in Saitama, Japan, and majored in hospitality and tourism. I was a former flight attendant for ANA (All Nippon Airways) living in Tokyo, Japan until I moved back to Hawaii in 2016. I’m now a flight attendant for American Airlines.

I only do lessons over Skype or FaceTime, so no in-person lessons. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Hope to see you soon!

Mikuさん is awesome!! Extremely patient and helpful without holding my hand. I’m able to understand sentences better with less than a year of lessons. She’s very professional and prompt. The lessons are always interesting and I actually feel like I’m improving every time (even if it’s just a little at a time). I’m really looking forward to being more conversational in Japanese!!

I highly recommend Miku and have recommended her to several friends because lessons with her are extremely fun, engaging, and thorough. I look forward to every single one, and have already learned so much in what seems like a short time--the time flies! She is also incredibly accommodating and makes rescheduling very easy and hassle free. I very much appreciate the time she shares with me as a student in helping me learn the way I do!

Miku is a great teacher to work with! I've been doing weekly lessons with Miku remotely since December of 2019 (now July 2020 as I'm writing this) starting from no experience.  I was worried about my ability to learn a new language since my only experience prior to this was learning Spanish in school years ago, but learning to read and speak Japanese with Miku's guidance has been the right level of challenging and fun.  Miku is a great communicator, flexible, really knowledgeable, adds nuance to the lessons we move through, and also really just fun to talk to and learn from.

I was nervous about one on one tutoring, but honestly I can say with complete confidence that Miku makes me feel very comfortable during these lessons. She does a great job of mixing exercises with casual conversations to help you really understand how to use the language in real conversation. She is always very fun and flexible with the timing. Highly recommended!!

Miku San has been my most valuable asset towards my journey of fluency in the years I’ve spent in pursuit of it. The more you meet with her the more you begin to appreciate her passion for teaching Japanese. Her lessons are both thoughtful and flexible . If I ever have questions on the context she will take the time to articulate an explanation regarding grammar or culture that I could never do on my own, or even with former tutors. Lessons with Miku San have the feeling of meeting with an old friend whilst providing genuine efforts towards your goals. I would recommend her to anyone.

Learning a new language on my own was tough and daunting, but after several lessons with Miku, I finally got the guidance I needed! I went from knowing basically nothing to finally building a basic foundation in Japanese reading, writing, and speaking! And I’m getting better with every lesson! She definitely lets me keep it at my own pace and helps to keep me engaged by answering all my curiosities about the culture as well. I hope to continue to take lessons with Miku even after my foundation has been built. There’s just so much to learn and her lessons make it easier to take in Japanese and help me to fully understand all the details. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS INSTRUCTOR!!!
