I am a private tutor of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 7 to middle-age. I love to be a witness when my students suddenly "get" something new we've been working on for a while. Japanese is a fascinating, beautiful, and complicated language, and it's exciting to be a partner in my students' achievements and success!

I have a lot of experience teaching middle school and high school age students--including my own kids, whom I homeschool. My first visit to Japan was a semester study abroad in my senior year of high school, and I've lived there off and on since then. My students receive the benefit of my life experiences there, including preparation for the realities of daily life in Japan--from how to use the public transit, to what to do during a natural disaster.

Along with my on-the-ground experience working in Japan as a translator/interpreter in a fast-paced, high-stakes environment, I hold an M.A. in Japanese and N1 (highest level) certification on the Japanese ...

I have been enjoying my lessons so far and I've been learning a lot. Clare is good about giving me lots of real-life information that a textbook doesn't really explain, which I enjoy very much and find helpful! She was very good at handling my expectations and concerns the first day and having good analogies to help me understand things. She has been very good about working with my chaotic schedule as well, which I appreciate very much. I look forward to my future classes.
Laura B.
Clare has been an amazing tutor! I did about ten weeks of one-on-one Japanese lessons in anticipation of a trip to Japan - although the trip fell through, Clare was extremely helpful and patient, always teaching with an emphasis on how things would actually be expressed in Japan. She was great at establishing the foundations and rules of grammar, but also when those rules can be broken.

After spending several years in the country, she also has fabulous insights into the culture and how to navigate as a non-native in Japan. Thanks Clare, I will be certainly be back when I can plan my next trip!

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!
