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.

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.

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.
