About Emi
I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada by Japanese parents. I was privileged with different kinds of learning opportunities including piano, Japanese language, ice skating, ballet, skiing and martial arts. After high school I attended university where I majored in Piano performance.

Over the last 10 years I have tutored all ages for piano and Japanese and learned how to be patient, persistent and to just be able to adjust and accommodate to different kinds of learning styles and abilities. I realized that it’s important to have a structure in your teaching styles and have clear expectations, standards and goals. Making certain modifications to your teaching styles along the way is crucial as well to meet individual student needs. I believe in setting high standards for students is an important way to get them to rise to their pote
ntial.

In my free time I love to go on a short hike, explore new restaurants or see a live music show.

今日は and welcome to learning Japanese, I have a bachelor's degree in Japanese language and culture from the Ohio State University, and I have tutored Japanese before and it really isn't as intimidating as it looks. I've learned through many ways and I have many many resources that I will gladly share with you so you can learn on your own, whether you're a beginner or advanced, I can direct you to how to become very fluent with all my knowledge and resources combined. Also as a bonus I will teach you some kanji calligraphy if interested as well.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

My hand lettering changed from the very first class! I write openly now, not with shame but fame because my hand writing has been made beautiful and attractive! Thanks Moataz.

Over the years I've used different books to teach, and I've found that the following books have worked well for my students:
- Youths (Ages 10 - 17): Japanese for Young People; Japanese from Zero
- College Students: Genki; Elementary Japanese
- Adults: Japanese for Busy People
- For the intermediate Japanese learners: Japanese Tutor - Grammar and Vocabulary Workbook.
- I can also get the textbooks that the students use at their classrooms.

About Kaz
I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. After moving to the U.S. to attend college, I worked for a couple of U.S companies before I came to work for Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, as a staff member.

My tutoring sessions are usually held on the Cornell University campus or at coffee shops in Ithaca. I also provide interactive online lessons using Skype. My services include: spoken and written language lessons; school work supplement for high school- and college-level courses; and cultural and travel preparations.

I offer a free initial interview session to see how I can best customize my lessons for each student. We can decide which material would be appropriate for the individual students at the initial interview session. (Please note that the students are responsible for providing their own materials.)

I've been in love with the Japanese language for over 20 years now, and teaching it for at least 15. I love to make my lessons interactive, with games, white board activities, and conversation. I use a variety of methods to teach, so my students gain a well-rounded understanding of the language. Whenever appropriate, I incorporate cultural notes and information about Japanese customs and holidays.

About Patience
I have a BS in Japanese, and have traveled to Japan 3 times, including my 4-month homestay experience. I have been a tutor for several years, but previously worked in language exchange programs both at Mount Union College and at University of Pennsylvania.
When I did my Japanese homestay, I lived with a family who had limited understanding of English, so I learned very quickly and relied upon my knowledge of Japanese. Each time I've returned, I've done the same, so that I am constantly learning, practicing, and improving myself.
I have tutored adults, adolescents, and children such as my 3 year old niece. I have a wide range of resources, books, fun games and activities that I have gathered or created over the years, that make learning exciting and keep it interesting.

I focus on speech fluency, it doesn't matter if you memorize vocabulary but don't have the confidence to speak the words you took the time to study. I practice with the basics of grammar because I want you to be comfortable saying the first thing that pops into your head, we can work on building more advanced skills later.

About Kyle
Hi, I am an undergrad studying Horticulture at OSU, I enjoy gardening and working together with people and plants. I am a baking enthusiast, I love all forms of food, and I live to play soccer.
My parent's took me to Japan for 3 years as a child to expose me to different cultures and people, which I've taken to heart in believing that however different our upbringing or backgrounds are, we are just people. People who just want to communicate their thoughts, emotions, and observations with others, and I want to help contribute to spreading communication as much as I can.
I have worked as a TA and tutor at OSU for students studying Japanese, and I have helped many Japanese exchange students understand English grammar and how they can relate(make connections with) their native language to English.
I will structure lessons that are practical
for you to learning English or Japanese that relate to your interests and profession. My intentions are for you to become more comfortable speaking in your second language, to develop conversation skills that you can use, and to take enjoyment from using a non-native language.
I am an easygoing, reliable, patient guy. I understand we all start at different levels of fluency and will work with you every step of the way, in other words, fluency is repetition.

She starts at with flash cards and takes it nice and slow and then when you start getting it she'll quiz you in them and will make you think about each word. Then she taught me to write hiragana which was cool. She's a nice teacher with a great smile, really enjoyable.
