Nina is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She makes learning Japanese fun but also serious. You are bound to learn a lot without realizing it. Each lesson is super fun and you will come away with more knowledge than you could have ever expected to learn on your own. Kamiterru!

Private Japanese Teacher

Having attended American school on the weekdays and a total-immersion Japanese school on the weekends (and coming home to parents who only spoke Japanese), I was lucky enough to grow up completely bi-lingual. With over a decade of experience teaching in private and classroom settings, I make my lessons fun, high-energy, and tailor-made to each individual. Please feel free to send me a message, and let's learn some Japanese! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Laura was wonderful with my 5 year old girl, she was patient, energetic and her love for music showed through! My daughter has been very motivated to practice her songs to show "Ms Laura" next week. We look forward to working much more with Laura.

Amazing! Talented vocalist and pianist that communicates very well. Has great advice and wonderful personality. Great with kids.
Rafael Marinho
I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

Private Japanese Teacher

I teach a wide range of students, from beginning/travel Japanese to advanced business Japanese. I also specialize in teaching all levels of JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) preparation. I have many students at the highest level JLPT N1. If Karaoke, Japanese Drama or Anime interest you, then we can have fun learning together.
Teaching is my passion! I love teaching! My teaching style is to have fun learning without stress. I cater my lessons to the individual student to meet his/her diverse interests and academic goals. I create simple formulas, so that difficult Japanese grammar is easy to understand. I respect student’s learning style with great patience. I strongly believe that repetition is key to mastering a language and try to impress this fact on students

During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

Online Japanese Teacher

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.
