I am a Japanese trainer with extensive knowledge in teaching Japanese as a second/third language. I work closely with my students to identify their goals and objectives and develop tailored lessons for a more effective learning experience. I believe that you will absorb more effectively when you enjoy learning and you are encouraged to learn! I teach basic through advanced Japanese. • Speaking, listening, reading, writing, Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji • Conversational Japanese: casual/polite/formal • Real-life applications to Japanese life and culture • Nuance in Japanese • Japanese way of thinking, trends, custom, traditional and contemporary Japanese culture
About Wakana Y.

Hello! My name is Wakana. I am an energetic yet patient native Japanese teacher with many years of experience teaching Japanese. My motto is to provide a learning experience that is enjoyable and encourages students to learn more. I understand how frustrating it can be to learn a language as a second or third language. I also believe that tailoring a lesson to an individual student's diverse interests, needs, and goals is essential because we all have a different learning style. I respect each student’s learning style and create a lesson plan accordingly. I am a firm believer in the importance of repetition in mastering a language and making learning steps enjoyable. Help and knowledge will be provided in all areas. Please ask me any questions** that you have/have had over the years. (**related to Japanese such as grammar, formality, nuance in the language as well as Japanese culture, current trends, or anything!) Please contact me for more information or if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to hearing from you! Doumo arigatougozaimasu. どうもありがとうございます。

Wakana is very energetic and knowledgeable about the nuances of both English and Japanese, making her explanations of different concepts easy to understand and useful to put into practice. She is also excellent at tailoring lessons to your specific needs and interests, as well as answering seemingly any question you can come up with along the way. Plus, she is patient and always ready to celebrate your successes. Every week, I come away from her lessons with tons of new knowledge and the confidence to put it into practice. And I'm always looking forward to the next.

She's very patient and explains everything thoroughly! Our tutor sessions are always a lot of fun, and I learn a lot in just one hour! She gauges your understanding of the language and adjusts accordingly. If you want to learn Japanese, I can't think of anyone better to teach you!
