Amazing experience with Yoshi Sensei. He provided me with a workbook, textbook, and language learning apps to help with the language learning process. Lessons are well prepared, structured, and individually tailored yet flexible and fluid so we can focus on specific areas and topics. He also assigns small amount of homework so that you can keep progressing on your own. I would definitely recommend Yoshi Sensei.

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.

おもしろい!

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!

My daughter is absolutely LOVING her lessons with Yuriko. We travel often and it is wonderful that my daughter is able to continue her lessons, where ever we are.

I am a native speaker and former school teacher in Japan. Learning is fun-that's my motto. When you achieve your goals, you enjoy a feeling of accomplishment, right? I want to help you to achieve your goals. My lesson starts from finding what students really need to learn. Understanding student is the key to success. I am very strong in teaching proper Japanese, including reading and writing Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji with fun way. Also, casual, informal, practical Japanese too.

I appreciate you so much! I am thoroughly enjoying learning with you! :)

I had been studying Japanese by myself for two years before booking a lesson with Jinko.
Even after one lesson I learned so many new things and received many helpful and useful tips. She helped me practice my pronunciation and went over some reading exercises with me as well. I would recommend taking lessons with her, she is patient and kind.

こんにちわ、先生。

I will try to make this short because there is so many good things to say about Jinko Sensei.

To start, I have had an interest in Japanese since I was little, stemming from anime and being Asian myself, I really wanted to actually commit to truly learning the language and becoming fluent.

Since I began, I have improved so much. My biggest problem was reading, but also not being afraid to just speak in Japanese, and slowly I have become more comfortable, and have broken my stigma of trying to speak in Japanese (just don't be afraid of making a mistake).

The best thing is that Jinko Sensei teaches what is practical. She is a very personable, great and amazing person! What more could you ask for from a teacher if you are really trying to learn Japanese. I cannot recommend her enough.

Anyways, I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy our classes together! If you need help reaching your Japanese goals, this is the teacher for you!

Hello! How is your learning going so far?

Since you are looking at my page, I’m guessing that you are looking for a teacher who can help you! If you are trying to learn how to speak Japanese, it's your lucky day!



In my lesson, we will be talking a lot!


Are you a shy person or a beginner? Don't worry! I will help you!


I believe that talking is the most effective and fastest way to learn a new language.
When I was in school, I was so bad at studying, but when I put myself in another country and forced myself only to speak English and not make any Japanese friends, my English skills improved in such a short amount of time.


I would like to use my effective learning experience to teach here.



Kids don't learn their native language by studying; they learn naturally by listening and speaking.


So we will be talking lots during our lessons. Of course, I do not expect you to speak perfect Japanese! I know that you will make lots of mistakes; we will have a safe learning ...

Maximize your Japanese learning with a native speaker with years of teaching experience!

I tailor my lessons to each student's learning style, her/his needs and goals. I use Genki 1 and 2 textbooks and workbooks with most of my beginner to intermediate level students, unless other textbooks and/or learning resources are requested.
During the lesson, my focus is generally on the grammar explanations and practice, as well as reading, and speaking practice. Homework is assigned after each lesson, and students are expected to work independently on vocabulary building, unless otherwise requested.
I encourage all of my students to contact me between lessons if they have any questions, and I will try to answer them within 24 hours.

I am currently accepting students ages 16 and up. I am looking forward to meeting you!

I cannot believe I haven’t written a review before this. I’ve been learning with Rie for almost two years now, and it’s been a wonderful experience. Homework is manageable on top of my classes and her teaching style reminds me of a classroom. I chose to study under Rie because I knew that she was someone whose teaching would hold me accountable to continue progressing. I can say happily that was a great choice and I could not have picked a better instructor.
Ruth Ann
Rie is truly a wonderful teacher of the Japanese language. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons with her
Robert F.
I’ve been studying Japanese off and on for almost 20 years. I had reached an upper intermediate level but I wanted to take my ability to a higher level so I started looking for a Japanese tutor. I feel really lucky to have found Rie. She’s a cool person who’s fun to work with. She’s patient and flexible and she always explains things in a way that is easy to understand. She’s as invested in my Japanese learning as I am and it’s hard to place a value on that kind of support and partnership. She also has good textbooks for people at more advanced levels. Without a doubt, my Japanese has improved more in the time I’ve been working with Rie than it has at any other time in all the years I’ve been studying it. If you’re an intermediate or advanced learner of Japanese and you’re looking to improve, Rie can absolutely help you. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
