Private Japanese Teacher

Hello, I have been teaching languages for over 15 years, and I love to see my students grow and develop. I speak 4 languages (French, Hebrew, English & Japanese) so I know what it takes to learn a language. It's much more than just "words"!
I lived in Japan for 7.5 years where I taught English as a second language.
Now I teach Japanese for beginners, French, and Hebrew at all levels.
Let me take you on a cultural journey where you not only learn to speak and read basic Japanese but understand the intricate cultural nuances of Japan, it's magical!
Looking forward to meeting you.

I consider myself a challenged beginner in Hebrew and Orion is patient and kind, and manages to add humor to my learning. She is willing to break down the nuances of the language in the easiest of terms, when needed. I can tell she would be a phenomenal instructor for more advanced learners as well. I look forward to my continued lessons!

"Miku San has been my most valuable asset towards my journey of fluency in the years I’ve spent in pursuit of it. The more you meet with her the more you begin to appreciate her passion for teaching Japanese. Her lessons are both thoughtful and flexible . If I ever have questions on the context she will take the time to articulate an explanation regarding grammar or culture that I could never do on my own, or even with former tutors. Lessons with Miku San have the feeling of meeting with an old friend whilst providing genuine efforts towards your goals. I would recommend her to anyone."

"Emi is the second private tutor that my company has had and she by far has been the best, hands-down. She is professional and experienced but she is also flexible with scheduling which is a necessity for business professionals who travel quite a bit for work.
The homework is not strenuous but is focused and important for success in her lessons. She also teaches at a nice pace but also is willing to work with you if you feel that you are falling behind. You can absolutely tell that Emi cares about her students and their progression with the language no matter their age and experience."
