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.

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.

こんにちわ、先生。

I will try to make this short because there is so many good things to say about Jinko Sensei.

To start, I have had an interest in Japanese since I was little, stemming from anime and being Asian myself, I really wanted to actually commit to truly learning the language and becoming fluent.

Since I began, I have improved so much. My biggest problem was reading, but also not being afraid to just speak in Japanese, and slowly I have become more comfortable, and have broken my stigma of trying to speak in Japanese (just don't be afraid of making a mistake).

The best thing is that Jinko Sensei teaches what is practical. She is a very personable, great and amazing person! What more could you ask for from a teacher if you are really trying to learn Japanese. I cannot recommend her enough.

Anyways, I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy our classes together! If you need help reaching your Japanese goals, this is the teacher for you!

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

Lessons are online only.

Akira is a great teacher. I really appreciate that he explains everything in depth when I don’t understand the grammar. I also appreciate that he corrects me every time I mispronounce something.

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!

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!

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.
