Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

I have taken 5 lessons with Sayaka sensei and although it’s been rough ( not because of Sayaka Sensei, but because of my busy schedule) it has been completely worth it. Sayaka sensei is patient and understanding. I’ve had to reschedule various classes due to overbooking myself and she has been understanding and gracious enough to keep being my sensei lol
I look forward to my classes, no matter how exhausted I am and only a good sensei can provide that sense of motivation. If you are considering taking Japanese lessons, Sayaka sensei is the right person to help you with your journey.

P.s Japanese is a challenging language (in my opinion)but it’s very interesting!

I was nervous at first but Sayaka sensei was truly wonderful and a pleasure to learn from. She put my worries at ease and made the lesson easy to understand and so much fun. I can't wait to continue learning. She is truly the best. I recommend her 100%

I have had lessons with Sayaka for three months now, so I thought I would update my review since my first lesson with her. I t has been great to see my Japanese improve while still having fun and not finding it to be a chore. Sayaka shows that she takes time to prepare her lessons for your needs and level. It is also great to chat with her and see that she really cares about you as a person. I don't plan on stopping any time soon!

Great lesson! I felt that I actually was able to learn more in one lesson than two months of trying to teach myself on language apps. Sayaka was very friendly and easy to work with. Looking forward to more lessons.

It’s very fun having a lesson with Teacher Sayaka! She makes me feel like she’s more of a friend to help more than a teacher. Lesson speed was perfect for me and she picked up what level I was really fast which was great! I really recommend her!

I had a lot of fun in my lesson with Sayaka! We mostly tested how much I already know since this was my first lesson. Sayaka is very kind and I'm sure I'll enjoy each lesson with her!

Sayaka is most helpful. She goes out of her way to prepare lessons and offer learning materials that fit for me. She's the perfect fit for a writer whose novel features American and Japanese characters in dialogue. I'm super happy to discover her for my first Japanese tutor.

I took my first class with Sayaka a couple of days ago, I'm glad I got to start my Japanese learning process with her. We had a very good first class, she answered to all of my questions and gave me good advice about what should I be starting with.

Sayaka is a wonderful instructor! I cannot recommend her enough! She is so thoughtful and genuinely wants you to learn and improve. She even surprised me at our previous lesson with material that was relevant to my job! I can't wait to take more classes with her!
