I am a native Japanese speaker with a Japanese teaching credential. All ages and levels are welcomed! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I am also qualified to tutor graduate students (Master’s and PhD) doing their thesis.
I believe when we learn other languages, it is important to learn their culture, history, etc. for better understanding. I’ve learned Japanese drums, how to wear Kimono, Tea and flower ceremonies so that we can explore Japanese culture more than just learning the language!

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 ...

Wanting
Really bad experience. I came to learn Japanese seriously while the teacher just spent the first 10min trying to talk about himself and asking me personal questions. When I asked him what his plan is for the class, he threatened me I can change another teacher and he does not want to teach. Pretty condescending attitude it seems to me.

Wakana sensei is extremely knowledgeable and she can explain the reasoning behind the concepts and the nuances of Japanese in a way I can relate to and easily understand. She answers any questions I have (grammar, random cultural questions etc..), which I really appreciate because I usually can't find these answers anywhere.
She is incredibly patient, accommodating, and fun. Wakana sensei itsumo arigatougozaimasu!

I had a great session with Wakana and am excited to do more. She was very interested in why I wanted to learn Japanese and is tailoring the lessons to help me get the most out of it. She made it very interesting and fun. Recommend 10/10!

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.

"Taking Japanese lessons with Rosita sensei is awesome! She Is the only one that gives you an online folder that has your books, exercise book and music! I'm taking this class so I can sing Anime in the future and sensei is unique in the sense that she also specializes in that field. She really listens to the student and creates the class to your wants and in what you need to improve on. You will learn so much from her!"

"This is my first time using the online class. I enrolled my 6 year-old who has written experience with Japanese but needs to practice his conversation skills. Sensei made the class very interactive and we used a lesson plan. Even though the lessons were geared toward an older student, he made sure the vocabulary, sentences and daily experience applied to my son. Highly recommend Sensei Yoshi! Looking forward to the next class! Thank you Sensei!"
