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 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.

Send me a message to find out if we are a good match!

Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I've been helping my friends and taught Japanese online.
I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

About Sayaka

Nice to meet you! I'm a native Japanese who have been in US for over 10 years. I have taught Japanese to my friends and online. I am a very patient and a natural listener, so I will listen to your goal, observe your level of Japanese and customize your lessons to be as efficient as possible within

I am a native Japanese speaker with a Japanese teaching credential. All ages and levels are welcomed! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I am also qualified to tutor graduate students (Master’s and PhD) doing their thesis.
I believe when we learn other languages, it is important to learn their culture, history, etc. for better understanding. I’ve learned Japanese drums, how to wear Kimono, Tea and flower ceremonies so that we can explore Japanese culture more than just learning the language!
