I have been teaching and tutoring this language over 5 years. I started my teaching after being a language and university student in Japan.

I can help students get grasp of Japanese as I had to learn it myself as a foreign language.

About Mari

Welcome to my music studio! This will be a fun, incredible way to start or continue your music instruction. I have been a private violin and piano instructor since 1991. I took a break in 2005 while my kids were little. Now that they have grown up a bit, I am so excited to come back to this!

Mari was an awesome instructor, and very kind.
Anne
I absolutely loved learning from Mari for my piano lessons! As an adult learner, I felt like my brain doesn't work as fast as it used to, so learning a new instrument was difficult, but Mari completely caters each lesson to my learning speed and maximized my abilities. She takes into accounts the areas and types of music I wanted to learn and helped me to achieve being able to play that type of music. I also loved and appreciated that she works around my busy work schedule and accommodating lessons when plans change throughout the week. I would highly recommend Mari as a music teacher to anyone interested in learning a new instrument at all ages!

Great violin teacher!!! My daughter can now do vibrato and play at a much higher level.

Hello! I'm a native Japanese speaker and experienced Japanese tutor. I have been tutoring Japanese since when I was in university as a TA for international students. I adopt the best teaching method and material for each student's needs and make sure that learning experience is fun and effective.

About Tomoko

When it comes to learning a language, I believe that correct grammatical understanding and the amount of output are equally important. Hence I focus on both grammar and speaking/writing practice during my lesson for the best result and you'll feel that your Japanese is improving! My previous Jap

The lesson moved at a comfortable pace. As this is our first intro to Japanese lessons, we had some difficulties with word pronunciation, but Tomoko was patient with us. She helped us break the words down and understand the sentence structures.
We look forward to our next lesson.

I grew up speaking both Japanese and English at home and understand the difficulty of trying to juggle both languages! Whether you want to learn a new language, or simply want to brush up on your Japanese skills, I am always happy to be of help! Lessons will include reading, writing, listening, and speaking (both formal and colloquial styles). I use the Genki and Tobira books and also like to introduce students to classic and modern Japanese literature as a way to enhance the students’ cultural knowledge. I welcome beginning and intermediate Japanese students!

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.
