I can help you with conversation skills, correct pronunciation and proper grammar. I usually use a textbook called ‘Genki’ for my lessons. I provide the textbook so you don’t have to buy it. With ‘Genki’ we can work on various grammar points, vocabulary building, situational role playing, pronunciation, and plenty of exercises to improve your listening and speaking skills.

I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that you can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at your own pace.

Mikuさん is awesome!! Extremely patient and helpful without holding my hand. I’m able to understand sentences better with less than a year of lessons. She’s very professional and prompt. The lessons are always interesting and I actually feel like I’m improving every time (even if it’s just a little at a time). I’m really looking forward to being more conversational in Japanese!!
Cathy
I highly recommend Miku and have recommended her to several friends because lessons with her are extremely fun, engaging, and thorough. I look forward to every single one, and have already learned so much in what seems like a short time--the time flies! She is also incredibly accommodating and makes rescheduling very easy and hassle free. I very much appreciate the time she shares with me as a student in helping me learn the way I do!
Adrienne
Miku is a great teacher to work with! I've been doing weekly lessons with Miku remotely since December of 2019 (now July 2020 as I'm writing this) starting from no experience.  I was worried about my ability to learn a new language since my only experience prior to this was learning Spanish in school years ago, but learning to read and speak Japanese with Miku's guidance has been the right level of challenging and fun.  Miku is a great communicator, flexible, really knowledgeable, adds nuance to the lessons we move through, and also really just fun to talk to and learn from.

My 12 year old son takes Japanese with Toshi weekly for an hour. He has enjoyed the lessons from day one. Toshi is a gifted teacher, and my son appreciates quick breaks during the lesson (it keeps him engaged for longer). My son says Toshi is a nice balance of serious and fun, and he also says what a great teacher he is. Toshi is supportive, encouraging and fun. What more could you ask for?!
Jaron
Toshi Sensei is very professional and genius. Since my major problems are speaking and listening, he tailored every lesson to my individual needs and included a lot of challenging materials that fit my level. Highly recommend!

Toshi is very knowledgeable and very patient with my 12 year old, he's always happy and smiling and leaves my daughter excited for the next lesson :)

Aimi is so great! My 8 year old (who hates reading) ended his first lesson and said, "Mom! You can't take me out of this class!" Aimi is so helpful and easygoing. I can't wait to see what she'll teach him!

We just signed up for additional lessons with Aimi. My granddaughter was reluctant to take online lessons. Aimi's teaching style and personality were the winning ticket. She is enthusiastic, her lessons are well organized, and she couldn't be nicer. Nicole looks forward to her lessons with Aimi, and we're so grateful and happy to have chosen her. Thank you!

My approach is to teach practical Japanese rather than” text book” Japanese, and I teach teenage and adult learners from beginner to intermediate level. I will be using text books/materials for grammatical study, but the main focus will be natural speaking skills. That way you will be ready to use your Japanese whenever you visit Japan, watch Japanese anime/manga or talk to Japanese people. Therefore, my lessons will be more conversational and there will be a lot of interactions.

The reason for valuing and focusing on "practical" skills is that although I was born and grew up in Japan, I have spent half of my life in other countries. And, since I have lived so long in non-Japanese speaking countries, I sincerely understand how hard it is to learn and communicate in a foreign language. So gaining and improving useful and practical language skills are very important for me.

Mika is a fantastic teacher. By the end of the first lesson, I was already understanding and constructing simple sentences and conversing in Japanese. She is a very patient and encouraging teacher, and very good at explaining how the language works. I highly recommend her!
