Hi, I'm Chieko. I'm Japanese and living in California and go back and forth between here and Tokyo. So I know the trend of Japan well. Furthermore, I have long working experience as manager in some major international companies in Japan. So I can help you communicate with Japanese workers using natural and effective language in Business Japanese. I know the business custom is very different among countries and Japanese one is a little complicated.. So, if you'd like to communicate with Japanese smoothly, please ask me what to do in a situation you encounter.
I have successfully passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in October 2016.

My son (15) has been taking lessons with Chieko-san for 2 years now. He has learned a great deal from her (it seems more than I leaned in my 3 years in HS and college). She sends me regular progress reports and was even willing to learn about the American grading system, make his studies more engaging with homework, and grade him so we could count it for HS credit (we homeschool). She is all around amazing!

Private Japanese Teacher

Certified teacher for Japanese (EC-12), Mandarin(EC-12) and Art(EC-12). I grew up speaking Japanese, Mandarin and Taiwanese, so I have no problem mixing them up to meet your need. Many years of freelance tutoring experience for Japanese and Mandarin have helped me teaching all levels of Japanese including Pre-AP and AP classes at my former employment of 9 years at a public high school. While I appreciate having a structured learning environment at a school setting, I miss the free-style teaching that suits the needs of each student. Desires to learn come strongest when one is genuinely interested in something, and rarely do those desires come from wanting to learn from a textbook . I hope you will have fun and enjoy my classes.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
If you are interested in learning Japanese using a textbook and a workbook, please let me know! Each student are required to have their own copy of the textbook for these classes.

Aimi is so great! My 8 year old (who hates reading) ended his first lesson and said, "Mom! You can't take me out of this class!" Aimi is so helpful and easygoing. I can't wait to see what she'll teach him!

I can personalize lessons at your request from using basic GENKI textbook or Japanese for busy people to free conversation upon your advance request. Please let me know what your purpose and goal. I will do my best to help you to achieve your goal. (Hopefully with a lot of fun.)

Learning Japanese? As being a composer for short Anime films and having a Japanese background, I have worked with Japanese companies for many years and trained employees of different companies in not only speaking Japanese but also the business culture. But that is not all my classes are for everybody for those planning a trip to Japan. What's special of my classes is that we learn to have a conversation for different situations every week. You will start talking after your first class! CHECK OUT MY VIDEOS HERE ON TL FOR JAPANESE TIPS!

There are also alternate terms to address a member of another person's family, versus your own.
