Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I've been helping my friends and taught Japanese online.
I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

About Sayaka

Nice to meet you! I'm a native Japanese who have been in US for over 10 years. I have taught Japanese to my friends and online. I am a very patient and a natural listener, so I will listen to your goal, observe your level of Japanese and customize your lessons to be as efficient as possible within

Great teaching, so learning goes very quickly
Ben
Great first lesson!
Debora Acevedo
I have taken 5 lessons with Sayaka sensei and although it’s been rough ( not because of Sayaka Sensei, but because of my busy schedule) it has been completely worth it. Sayaka sensei is patient and understanding. I’ve had to reschedule various classes due to overbooking myself and she has been understanding and gracious enough to keep being my sensei lol
I look forward to my classes, no matter how exhausted I am and only a good sensei can provide that sense of motivation. If you are considering taking Japanese lessons, Sayaka sensei is the right person to help you with your journey.

P.s Japanese is a challenging language (in my opinion)but it’s very interesting!

Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...

He is animated, fun and creates a positive teaching atmosphere. His lessons are designed for a beginner and tailored to my student.
Beverly N.
When trying to find a tutor, I did a lot of research and ended up picking Masaki as my teacher. I definitely made the right choice because he's great! I like how he stresses the importance of the fundamentals, including the correct pronunciation. His goal isn't just for your Japanese to be "good enough", he wants to make it so that you sound like a native speaker. He doesn't hesitate to correct me, but in a very kind way. I've booked 1-hour lessons with him, but because I learn so much in every class so far, the time always feels so short.

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.
