Improve your Japanese: Friendly teacher with 30+ years Experience
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.
About Jinko H.

Ages taught: 15 to 75 こんにちは。 If you are trying to start learning Japanese, you found a right tutor!! I am very happy to see many people who want to learn and improve their Japanese. Please note that my current availability is really limited. If you want to learn Japanese with me, but you don't find any time slot which is convenient to you, don't be discouraged. I can add you in the waiting list and let you know once I have open slot. Hello! My name is Jinko and I love teaching! It's a joy for me to see people's improvement and success. I was born and raised in Tochigi, Japan. I have been teaching Japanese since I moved to America in 2001. Currently, I teach Japanese at community college and home. Also, I teach at Saturday school(HOSHUKO) in Bethesda, MD, where students can learn many subjects in Japanese. At the same time, I am raising 3 children as bilingual. I earned B.A. and certified in Japan as a teacher. 11 years of experience as a public school teacher in Japan gave me a joy to see children's success and achievement. That's why I've started teaching in America too. Learning is fun! Not only children, but adults too, can have fun to learn something new. My role is to help and support them to achieve their goals. Because I use both languages, I can teach efficiently, explain details, and provide some useful tips. I am very good at finding what kind of learning style they prefer and make you feel comfortable while you learn. Also, I believe it is one of my talents to find out what each student needs to practice and study in order to improve their skills. Which means I plan my lessons based on your needs so you can learn efficiently. I am very confident that I can provide high quality lessons and make you satisfied. My experience and constant effort to improve my teaching skill is the benefit for you. Please read about my policy before you sign up with me. This is very important for both you and me. 【Cancellation, reschedule and late policy】 I respect your time very much. Thus, I expect you to respect mine too.

Please remember that you must contact me 24 hours in advance or you will be charged for the lesson. No matter what the reason is. If you can't make your scheduled lesson for more than two weeks consecutively (for vacation, camp, and so on) I need to give your lesson time to another student. My schedule is very tight since I work with many students. Which means that I can't afford to hold a time slot with a student who can't consistently show up. If you would like to start lessons with me again, please contact me with your preferred time slot from my availability.

My daughter is taking a Japanese class with Ms. Jinko for her AP exam. My daughter enjoys the class and thinks that the class is helpful for her listening comprehension and spoken Japanese.

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.
