About Seiko D.

I enjoy teaching Japanese. I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. I earned a college degree in Japan with a secondary teaching credential as well as a BS degree in the US. Prior to my tutoring career, I worked at global companies in Japan and the US for 15+ years. I involved in numerous translations between the languages. My motto is to teach students from their points of view and make sure they understand well in each session.

I teach beginners to advanced levels including JLPT preparations. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements, and goals. Both In-person and online lessons are welcome.

During a lesson, you would most likely use textbooks. For travelers and your interest-based lessons, I will select appropriate materials to meet your needs. You can choose either Romaji or Kana based lessons. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learning the language but also strengthening your communication skills in understanding its cultural aspects, nuance, and expressions. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience in helping interview simulation and proofreading resumes and essays. I also specialize to prepare for JLPT tests. I can teach all n5-n1 levels.

My schedule on the site might not be updated as it always changes. So please send me a message to check my latest availability and any questions you might have. Look forward to hearing from you!

Seiko-San was very cooperative and encouraging during my first online lesson. I believe it was her first time teaching online and she did well. I am really happy today with my experience, she gave me some nice compliments. I look forward to the next lesson.

Seiko walks with me every lesson through the "Japanese for busy people" book and I like how she asks me to go through exercises in japanese so I can get used to listening. We also spend time enriching vocabulary.
