You will learn how to speak (and write if you are interested!) Japanese while you also learn about the culture and traveling tips. Lessons can be customized and catered to your needs and goals but mainly we can focus on having conversations and learning correct pronunciations while gaining useful words and phrases. I’m a native speaker but I have been living in the US for more than 20 years. As far as my teaching background goes, I was a teacher for Saturday Japanese School total of 10 years in the past and I also did tutoring while I attended my university. From my personal language learning experience, (I learned to speak Spanish also!) I can share my tricks on learning language faster and retaining it. Let’s get started!

About Rina M.

I am a native Japanese speaker and I have over 15 years of teaching experience. I speak English fluently so I know some difficulty for some non-Japanese speakers but I can help on pronunciation, mannerism, etc. If you are looking for a native speaker to converse and polish your speaking skills, I can definitely help you. All levels. We can talk about about culture, food, customs, tradition of Japan, etc.
