During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Hikaru

はじめまして & thank you for taking a moment to check out my profile! I'm originally from Tokyo Japan, and I moved to NY with my family during high school. I've completed Master's degrees in Language Education & Communication, and Bachelor's Degrees in Music Performance and Political Science.

I just had my second lesson with Hikaru and I ask so many questions all the time and am just a lot as a person, but she's so patient and is really willing to answer all of my questions and go over absolutely whatever. She's also very good at explaining things and can explain the grammar side to me (I'm a big grammar proponent), which is an absolute blessing. Lessons fly by and I absolutely cannot wait for my next one.

Also, she's been helping me find resources that I can use to work on my Japanese outside of lessons. I know that some people won't do that because they want you to buy more lessons, but Hikaru genuinely just wants to help me learn both the language and the culture.
Micah
Great instructor. Patient and willing you work with you.
Paige M.
After one class I’m so excited for more. Hikaru started off by explaining the very very basics and was incredibly knowledgeable whenever I asked questions. I look forward to my next class.

My son has been working with Toshi for 3 years now, and he has developed a true love for the language and culture of Japan. Toshi is a great instructor and a wonderful human being. We couldn't be happier with this experience!

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!

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!

❗️Cancellation, reschedule and late policy ❗️

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.

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.

"The best instructor I have ever had in my life.

As it states on her profile, she is well-versed in all levels of Japanese language and culture. She is extremely good at developing a lesson plan specific to each student's needs, and can use a wide variety of media to help each student - again, depending on what each student would like to do. Whether you want to learn how to speak for a trip, or how to navigate the Japanese business environment at a fluent and competent level, she will have the best instruction. To say that she is adaptive is an understatement. You will absolutely come out of every class feeling that you have learned something meaningful and useful towards your language goals. Jessie will work with you to develop a schedule that will work with your life outside of class, and is extremely easy to work with regarding schedule changes.

Jessie managed to get me from a beginner level, to just starting on N2 material, in a shorter time than I could have imagined. She has an extremely high level of motivation and excitement that shows through in every lesson.

I highly recommend Jessie for any level due to her adaptability, high skill level, and wide span of knowledge."
