During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Hikaru

はじめまして & thank you for taking a moment to check out my profile! I'm originally from Tokyo Japan, and I moved to NY with my family during high school. I've completed Master's degrees in Language Education & Communication, and Bachelor's Degrees in Music Performance and Political Science. I enjoyed organizing and running language study groups in college, and experienced working as a Japanese TA for several semesters. I LOVE to teach in general, whether it's music or languages, and I personalize most of my teaching materials for individual student. Let me know what YOUR unique short/long-term goals are, along with interest topics, and we'll work it out! Thanks again, and I'm excited to hear from you!

Hikaru is down to earth, conversational and a great teacher. I have already learned so much from her. I can't say enough good things about her. If you make time to study on your own, in conjunction with her lessons you'll be picking up the language in no time at all!

Private Japanese Teacher

Experienced JAPANESE teacher since 2007, available for students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while building a strong foundation to further develop proficiency in Japanese. Each class is custom made to your own level and needs.

Text book used: Genki, Minnano Nihongo, Japanese for busy people, JLPT preparation books, or your own text book.

Classes are taught online primarily using SKYPE.

About Yuriko

Hi, Kon nichi wa. Genki?
Hajime mashite, watashino namae wa Yuriko desu.

I was born and raised in Japan. I can teach from beginner to intermediate in Japanese. I have many hours of experience teaching Japanese to any ages, kids to adults, private, group or home-schooling -- whoever wants to learn Japanese (writing, reading, conversation, romaji, hiragana, katakana kanji and JLPT (all level)).
I have a teaching certificate issued by Japanese Ministry of Education which qualifies me to teach 7th -12th grade classes.

I recently relocated from LA to Honolulu, Hawaii so "SKYPE" is the key word, very useful and love it.

Just let me know what time so we can meet.
Let's have fun!

Yoroshiku:)

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

Japanese tutor. Conversational Japanese teacher.

I lived in Hiroshima, Japan for two years. Before I left, I simply wanted a teacher to offer common phrases and cultural tips. If you plan to move to Japan or visit Japan I can help. I'll teach you basic phrases, important etiquette, and fun cultural facts that Japanese residents know but you don't (yet!!!).

Need help in Japanese class? I speak conversational Japanese. I read and write 200 kanji, hiragana, and katakana. Frankly, I enjoy studying the language and want to help you ace the class.

About Amy

I am a Japanese teacher and ESL teacher currently working on my masters in Education. I lived in Japan from March of 2017 though March of 2019 where I taught in the Japanese public school system.

I prepare students to travel to Japan for business, educational, or professional purposes. To these students I teach specific phrases and cultural etiquette. I also teach beginner to intermediate-level Japanese to students interested in the language for any purpose.

Whether you plan a trip to Japan, are currently enrolled in Japanese classes and need a tutor, or simply find the language fascinating (like I do), I can provide you with the strategies and lessons necessary to grow your vocabulary and comprehension.

I'm preparing for an extended trip to Japan, and I really wanted some in person help to make sure I didn't totally flounder once I got there. Amy was a super friendly and super patient teacher. I never felt uncomfortable practicing or asking for help multiple times on things that I wasn't getting. I would absolutely recommend Amy to anybody trying to learn Japanese.

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.

What I can offer with my Japanese lessons is time spent that is unlike the traditional Japanese learning classroom. With me, there will be less of a strict schedule to follow and more flexibility to fit your needs. You will have the chance to practice and learn with someone who has the experience of learning Japanese from scratch and who understands the needs of those beginning the Japanese journey, rather than someone who has spoke it their whole life. These lessons will help build the foundation for learning Japanese, which you can use to grow and expand your learning in the future.

About Jason

こんにちは!My name is Jason Ogbue. I’m starting takelessons to help students find a place where they can begin their Japanese learning, in case they don’t know where to start. I’ve been studying Japanese for 2 years with a combination of self-teaching and college classes. My goal is to help all of my students create a strong foundation for their Japanese learning that will allow them to grow on their own afterwards. If your ready to begin Japanese, go ahead and make your start with me!

I was a 5th year ALT on the JET Programme. (Ask me how I transferred from Nagasaki to Tokyo!) I taught high school, middle school, and special education English classes. Since then, I've been teaching adults and children here in New York City. As a native English speaker who has studied Japanese, I know the most effective methods to learn it.

I love teaching Japanese and English! They're both so much fun to learn. I can teach you what you need to know to visit Japan, sing karaoke, or become a translator. Anything for my amazing students.

About Sara

I am here to help you meet and set goals with your Japanese and English while encouraging and challenging you to reach new heights as a student and as the wonderful, beautiful individual you are. I will teach with as much enthusiasm as you study. 10 hours of classes a week? No problem! 3-hour sessions? Time to pack some cookies! Haha, you probably think I'm kidding. I'm not. :)
