I was a 5th year ALT on the JET Programme. (Ask me how I transferred from Nagasaki to Tokyo!) I taught high school, middle school, and special education English classes. Since then, I've been teaching adults and children here in New York City. As a native English speaker who has studied Japanese, I know the most effective methods to learn it.

I love teaching Japanese and English! They're both so much fun to learn. I can teach you what you need to know to visit Japan, sing karaoke, or become a translator. Anything for my amazing students.

About Sara

I am here to help you meet and set goals with your Japanese and English while encouraging and challenging you to reach new heights as a student and as the wonderful, beautiful individual you are. I will teach with as much enthusiasm as you study. 10 hours of classes a week? No problem! 3-hour sessi

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007. From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

Sue is the best 선생님!! I contacted her for Korean lessons this summer and she responded immediately and was able to accommodate my time schedule. She’s a very patient and kind teacher and person. I had the hardest time with pronunciation and she was able to help me really hear how the words were supposed to be pronounced and made me feel more confident. She made every lesson fun and enjoyable — every teacher should be like her.

Konnichiwa! Since returning to the U.S. from Japan last year, I have been tutoring Japanese to young adults. I lived for almost nine years in Japan where I worked in a private school teaching English literature and ESL. I used Japanese daily in staff meetings and in writing reports and e-mails. My experience learning Japanese is unique in that I am self-taught (though I had many mentors). I have passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level N2, and speak to my son in Japanese as well. I am a recent graduate of Teachers College, Columbia University. I look forward to aiding in your learning process.

Learn Japanese from a Japanese! Not only will you learn to communicate, we can learn to enjoy Japanese content. I can teach you to read and write, so you can read 僕のヒーロー and watch Konosuba with original voice acting without subtitles, even create your own content in any media that only you can create! I will contextualize our lessons so that it is most relatable to you and your goals. My lessons will utilize the power of recall and memory, so you can be sure that it's more useful than listening to an audio tape while you sleep!

About Satoru

I am a native Japanese speaker, with over 22 years living in the United States. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University, and have since traveled across the country and met and taught Japanese to many people who were interested in learning from simple conversation to being able to read their fav

Learning Spanish is not just an attractive endevour for those looking to broaden their professional and personal opportunities. Speaking Spanish can also be a valuable asset. As the second most widely spoken language in the world, Spanish has more than 400 million speakers and is the native tongue in 20 different countries. One of the most effective ways to learn the building blocks of Spanish is in the context of conversations rather than static vocabulary drills, and that's where I come in with fun, interactive classes designed to help you learn the language in a fast and entertaining way. Discover the best way to learn Spanish with a native language speaker, born and raised in Mexico.
