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.

About Paul

I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily

. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!!

Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.

Since I'm absolute beginner in Japanese, I found Paul to be the perfect fit for me. If you are young or adult (me) I would highly recommend taking classes with Paul at least for your beginning classes. I'm sure he would be the perfect fit for you too.

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!

About Rie

Born and raised in Japan, I moved to the United States in the 80's to pursue the goal of obtaining a library degree. Fast forward almost 30 years, I now live in Western New York, working in a local school district.
In the past 30 years, I have worked as a librarian, an English instructor in Japan, and a school administrative assistant. I have also taught Japanese to college students and adults in my free time, and when I become an empty nester this summer, would love to dedicate more time teaching the language and customs of my native country. I can help you with homework, conversational Japanese, and more - just contact me and we can find out if we are a good match!

I've enjoyed working with Rie 先生. My boyfriend and I have an upcoming trip to Japan and these lessons help me to be more confident in being able to navigate around. I enjoy the feedback because it not only highlights what I can improve on, but it also shows there are concepts I'm actually retaining. Learning Japanese feels natural with her! ありがとうございます!

I love traveling and try to new things, and I love Japanese foods. So, I want to know my interesting and wired! my culture. And I want to know your culture.

I teach students how to speak Japanese as it is spoken in Japan. Japanese is an extremely complicated language where there are many different ways to say one thing depending on the situation. Context plays a big role in Japanese and so does the pitch of each syllable and the flow of an overall sentence. A Japanese speaker may be able to understand a completely inarticulate sentence just based on context and pitch, therefore with poor pitch or flow, that person may assume a foreign language is being spoken and immediately give up on trying to understand. I focus my lessons on how to speak Japanese like a native Japanese speaker, so that a student can go to Japan and converse normally in practical daily life. This means we work a lot on pronunciation and casual conversation, and the student will learn to speak before they read, and to read before they write, as any native speaker of any language does. If the student prefers to focus on learning reading and writing for more artistic ...

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 ...

About Masaki

About me.

I was born in Fukuoka, Japan and moved to the US when I was 18.
I studied ESL then got a degree in marketing and worked in Real Estate and Finance for many years.
I learned English from scratch when I moved to California and am now completely fluent in English, so much so that people can’t believe I’m not from here.
My work takes me back and forth between Japan and the US, and I am so grateful to have a deep understanding of both the Japanese and Western way of life and be able to celebrate the two.

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!

It's hard to believe Masaki could become so fluent at a second language when he only started learning at the age of 18. It makes him a great teacher for adults because he himself started a second language as an adult.

His teaching style is so fun and so tailored to each student I highly recommend him as a language teacher, both in Japanese and English!

Learn Japanese Grammar: How to Use Japanese Adjectives

By Maile Proctor

Verbs and nouns are vital to form a sentence, but if you want to add some color, you also need adjectives. Here, Ann Arbor, MI teacher Elaina R. shows you how to use Japanese adjectives... Adjectives are descriptive words. The stove is hot. The blue sky turned black. I am confused. We use tons of adjectives in our everyday speech. If you're learning Japanese, learning to use adjectives is a must. Luckily, using adjectives in Japanese is pretty darn easy. There are only tw …
