Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...

Masaki tailors the lesson to the individual. We had a great conversation on my first lesson and I'm off to a great start! I'm eager to see how far I get!

Masaki fosters a learning environment where he takes all of the hard work of learning a new language transforms it into fun. He has a bright personality, and the ability to not only translate the language, but the language in the context of the culture. He doesn't just teach you to speak Japanese, but how to be Japanese!

Talking to Masaki you would never know that English was not one of his native languages... I'm still shocked that he didn't begin learning until he was already an adult!

If you are wanting to learn Japanese, or if you are Japanese and you want to become as a native English speaker, you have found your guy!

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 has earned my highest recommendation. She provides weekly Japanese language and culture online tutoring to my 14-year-old son. She engages him fully, providing a rich multi-media experience utilizing video chat and whiteboarding effectively to simultaneously teach the spoken and written language (Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji). He is excited at the prospect of each new lesson and is learning quickly.
Martha
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.
Emma
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!!!

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!

About Yuko

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.

Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.
Marcellin
My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.

"My experience with Clare has been great! Clare is extremely comfortable with Japanese and is just all around excellent at guiding me through lessons. She is extremely patient and absolutely willing to take it slow and focus on my own personal language goals with me. She's able to adapt and help me regardless of my progress moving faster or slower any given lesson. I don't feel any pressure, she is friendly and approachable, and her understanding of Japanese is thorough. She's an excellent teacher. If you plan to learn just how to speak, read, or write, or if you need a tutor to help with the studies you've already begun, Clare has you covered. Highly recommended."

My Japanese is at the intermediate and conversational level and I reached out to Sensei Yoshi to help me take my skills to a higher level. The teaching materials are very effective and Yoshi is very knowledgeable and supportive and is correcting my grammatical errors, which is exactly what I need. I signed up for 2 months' worth of lessons to start and will probably continue 3times a week for at least six months. I highly recommend Sensei Yoshi."
