Private Japanese Teacher

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.

Hello. I am a Chinese woman fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and English. I am looking for students to study Mandarin and/or Japanese and for ESL for Japanese and Chinese language speakers. I grew up in China and lived and went to university in Japan. Coming from the north of China, I speak

Private Japanese Teacher

I am a Japanese native speaker who has a deep interest in helping students learn Japanese and learn how to be successful in Japanese society. I lived in Japan until this past year and worked as a civil servant for seven years. During that time, I helped JET Program workers from America learn how to talk with their bosses and co-workers. This means I can help you learn smooth business Japanese as well as more casual language. In Japan and in the US, I frequently advise LGBTQ students and students of color about Japanese culture and how to adjust to Japanese society. Both Japanese language and culture can be tough--but I will work with you to help you succeed and achieve your goals!

My favorite aspect of tutoring is tailoring my lessons to YOUR needs and desires. If you would like anime, but need more speaking practice, I can come up with role-play situations that will allow you to talk about your interests. If you like Japanese culture and want to read more high-level texts, we can ...

Aki is the best Japanese teacher that I have ever had! Aki plans lessons that exactly match the things I need to learn, so it is very efficient for me. She is especially good at explaining difficult grammar points in a very clear manner. She has really helped me improve in reading, writing and speaking. I am very grateful to her and strongly recommend her to other students.

I can’t even begin to describe how incredible Aki has been as a tutor ever since our first lesson together. I can tell that my speaking skills have improved tremendously since working with her. Aki is great at providing a variety of different assignments and exercises to ensure no stone is left unturned in the learning process. I appreciate the fact that she customizes the lessons and assignments to focus on my interests as well as the areas of language learning that I could use more practice in. This may sound like an exaggeration, but choosing Aki as a Japanese tutor was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Thank you, Aki!!!

Aki is a wonderful instructor. I have had around 8 lessons with her so far, and it’s always great to learn new things with her. She is highly knowledgeable, and is great at explaining things in a way that makes challenging subjects and concepts easier to understand. Not only that, she is also easy to get along with. I am a naturally anxious person, I was really nervous to start taking Japanese lessons, and make myself actually speak out loud in Japanese, but taking lessons with Aki is always a great time. I have built a lot more confidence in my ability since I started these lessons, and I am so grateful for that! You won’t regret taking lesson with Aki! She’s a wonderful teacher! どうもありがとうございますあきさん!

Private Japanese Teacher

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.

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!

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!

Online Japanese Teacher

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.

I am currently working as a Korean, ESL, and Japanese tutor. Because I am also a language learner (English and Japanese), I know why and in what area the students struggle when learning Japanese especially English and Korean speaking students. I am confident that I can help you to achieve your goal even if you speak languages other than English and Korean.

About Herena

Hello. I am an in-service tutor at the college. I am currently helping students with Korean, ESL, and Japanese. I meet many students with various needs daily basis. If you let me know your concerns or struggles, I will try my best for you to achieve your goal! Let's make it happen together!

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

"Really enjoying our lessons so far! Hikaru is very flexible, which has really worked out well for me. Since I live in Japan our schedules are very different, but we've been able to make it work nonetheless. She always has lesson plans put together and sends you the PDF's before each lesson. If you are curious about things not in the lesson plan, she's always happy to explore that with you as well. Most importantly, she makes you feel comfortable while you are trying to read and speak Japanese. Thank you, Hikaru!"
