I'm a native Japanese speaker here to help you learn Japanese. My aim is to help you gain not only the Japanese skills but also the cultural awareness to help you navigate in situations in which you need to use Japanese. I approach my lessons with customization that is only possible in private teaching. I teach students of all ages who are able to take at least 6 months of my lessons. I look forward to making contribution to your learning.
About Taro T.

こんにちは  My name is Taro, and I am a Japanese teacher from Kobe, Japan.   ​  I first started teaching Japanese when the mother of a high school student reached out to me to help him learn Japanese. I have been teaching the language since then to men and women of all ages.   Japanese is a language that emphasizes formality which is reflected in Japanese culture that values civility and order. Learning Japanese properly enables you to understand how Japanese people think and act, which helps you to enjoy Japan fully when you visit the country.   My job is to help you learn the language the right way so you can get to the next level. In order to do so, I use curated material and utilize technology to maximize your learning process.   I look forward to working with you, and I am excited to help you realize your goal.   Taro Material Used: Genki I&II (beginners) 「上級へのとびら」(intermediate-advanced) 新完全マスター Shin-kanzen Master (JLPT: N4-N1)

Taro is not only an excellent teacher and an expert on the Japanese language, but he is also an incredibly charismatic and kind human being. I told Taro when we began that I would only be able to take lessons for about a month and a half. He agreed and designed an accelerated version of the curriculum to cover as many essentials as possible before my departure for Japan. I have learned more with him in a month than I learned on my own in a year. Highly recommended.
