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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

"I started taking lessons about a month ago and so far it has been a very positive experience. My Japanese is at the intermediate and conversational level and I reached out to Sensei Yoshi to help me take my skills to a higher level. The teaching materials are very effective and Yoshi is very knowledgeable and supportive and is correcting my grammatical errors, which is exactly what I need. I signed up for 2 months' worth of lessons to start and will probably continue 3times a week for at least six months. I highly recommend Sensei Yoshi."
