Hi, My name is Seiko. I am an experienced Japanese tutor teaching online nationwide as well as in-person locally in Silicon Valley/Bay area, CA. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements, and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. 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 and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience of reviewing and proofreading resume and essays as well as AP/JLPT test preparations.

About Seiko D.

I enjoy teaching Japanese. I am an experienced Japanese tutor, 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 corporations in Japan and the US for 15+ years. I was liaising with the company business between the countries and involved in numerous translations between the languages. I understand nuance well to translate. 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 a native level JLPT 1. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements, and goals. Both In-person and online lessons are welcome. If you are interested in JLPT lessons, please send me a message as it differs from the regular Japanese lessons.

During lessons, you would most likely use textbooks. I would use other materials to make the sessions for you to learn the language proactively. High school and college students: I have been tutoring local school students for many years. I can connect young people well. I am also familiar with the textbooks being used high schools. I tutor my students to review for the area of what he/she was not so sure in school and give homework help and test preparations. 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 also 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.

Due to COVID-19, I am currently providing online lessons only. 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!

I had my first lesson with Seiko today, and it was great! She's very nice and encouraging and adds cultural notes throughout the lesson. She also makes sure she's not going too fast and welcomes questions. I look forward to learning Japanese with her!

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.
