Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

As a native Japanese speaker, who has spent the last 30 years in the United States, I understand the structural and grammatical differences in the two languages. This gives me both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives, which I find valuable as a language instructor.

I have taught Japanese to college students and adults, using beginning and intermediate Japanese textbooks, and I am most comfortable teaching high school/college students and adults.
I can also teach conversational Japanese and/or customize the lesson to meet each student’s particular goals and needs.

1. Lesson cancellation and rescheduling must be requested at least 8 hours before the scheduled lesson starts. Without an 8-hour notice, you will be charged for the lesson, regardless of the reasons.

2. If you cannot attend your lessons for two or more consecutive weeks, your time slot may be given to another student. If you wish to resume lessons with me but your

Rie is a very friendly and patient teacher, but she is also very effective! She quickly assesses strengths and weaknesses and does a great job motivating you to continue developing your skill.
Ada D.
I started lessons with Rie in order to pass a college course placement test after missing the first semester of my school's Japanese program. Not only was I able to test into second semester Japanese with her guidance, I was also accepted into a rigorous study abroad program after less than a year of studying the language.
As someone who finds speaking another language rather frightening, I was very fortunate to find a teacher like Rie. Not only is she extremely patient, she tailors lessons and homework to the needs of her students. It only took me a few lessons for me to feel completely at ease while stumbling through grammar points and vocabulary.
I’ve had many different language teachers in the past, but Rie has definitely been my favorite. If you are looking to learn Japanese I highly recommend her teaching!
Lyla N.
Rie-san is a really great instructor, i've always felt a little awkward with online lessons but hers are really fun!

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!

Japanese Honorifics: Formal & Informal Name Suffixes | TakeLessons

When learning to speak Japanese, you’ll come across suffixes used to address people called “honorifics.” Japanese honorifics are an important way to convey respect, formality, and friendship to those you interact with. Both formal and informal honorifics are common in Japanese, which is why every speaker needs to get the basic suffixes down. To an English speaker, the concept of honorifics may seem new, but the fact is, we already use terms, such as Miss, Mr., and Dr. as prefixes. But …
