Hi. I'm a native Japanese speaker from Kobe. I was born and raised there and speak both standard Japanese and Kobe dialect. I'm an expert at bringing one's overall language level from the beginner to intermediate. I will assist you more with English first if you're a beginner and gradually transition to using only Japanese as you get closer to an intermediate level.

Helped construct an annual scorecard on Remittance Service Providers (RSPs) which increased the transparency of the money transfer industry. Gathered data on RSPs’ presence and payment points in Latin America and South East Asia.

Taguchi Sensei has helped improve my Japanese tremendously! Not only is he able to accommodate my sometimes crazy schedule, but he's very patient while learning, will go in-depth on topics I don't quite understand and will provide exercises for me on those topics. He's personal, so we use real-time situations from my life to practice with (describing my day at work, where my cats are, what I ate, etc.)
When I visted Japan this year, I owe it to him that I was able to have the amazing experiences I did. Because of him, I was able to understand the language, the culture, and have the confidence in speaking with locals.
I appriciate all the help and encourgaement that he's provided.
Taro is a great Japanese instructor! He’s constantly analyzing and reevaluating the best possible learning methods for each particular student. I’ve only taken 3 lessons so far but I’m quite confident in his ability to help me reach fluency in Japanese, so long as I am patient and disciplined 🤔😅+ Read More
Taro is amazing! Just finished 5 lessons and I feel great about my Japanese. I will be signing up for more!
Taro is very positive and polite. He knows how to challenge me but at the same time keeps me motivated.
I highly recommend Taro to anyone who wants to learn Japanese!
Taro is a great teacher. Rather than simply expecting rote memorization, he uses practical applications to help you learn and understand the material.
Taro is a very nice helpful and professional Sensei
Mr. Taro is a marvelous teacher! He is very patient and kind. He works hard to tailor his lessons to your need. His lessons encompass speaking, reading, and writing. It doesn’t matter if you are new to Japanese or already have foundational conversational skills, Mr. Taro can help your Japanese skills reach the next level!+ Read More

Along with being expedient in his responses, he is always capable of answering any questions clearly and concisely. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn Japanese. Happy to rate him 5 stars, and would give more if I could!+ Read More
I really enjoy these lessons! English is my second language so I was little bit afraid of studying Japanese but Taro is helping me so much. His way of teaching is pretty nice and comfortable. I couldn't imagine that I can enjoy lessons as much as I do right now. However, Japanese is interesting and amazing language and I think this is great way how to learn it. Thank you so much!+ Read More
Taro was very good and knowledgeable teacher. As a native speaker he provided a lot of helpful insights.
He teaches me eagerly, friendly, kindly and calmly. When I can't understand, he explains with English and Japanese. It's very helpful for me. I recommend to try taking his lesson.
Taro is a great instructor! I am learning so much.
Thank you for teaching me! I went to Japan last summer and I've been studying Japanese for my next trip. Taro has been helping me improve my Japanese. He speaks very clearly and he is really patient. He's a great teacher as well as a great individual.+ Read More
