Hi, My name is Seiko. I am an experienced Japanese tutor teaching online nationwide as well as in-person locally in CA. I provide individually tailored lessons based on your interests, necessary improvements, and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learn the language but also strengthen your communication skills in understanding its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience in reviewing and proofreading resumes and essays as well as JLPT test preparations.

Aimi is so great! My 8 year old (who hates reading) ended his first lesson and said, "Mom! You can't take me out of this class!" Aimi is so helpful and easygoing. I can't wait to see what she'll teach him!

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!

Wakana sensei is extremely knowledgeable and she can explain the reasoning behind the concepts and the nuances of Japanese in a way I can relate to and easily understand. She answers any questions I have (grammar, random cultural questions etc..), which I really appreciate because I usually can't find these answers anywhere.
She is incredibly patient, accommodating, and fun. Wakana sensei itsumo arigatougozaimasu!

I had a great session with Wakana and am excited to do more. She was very interested in why I wanted to learn Japanese and is tailoring the lessons to help me get the most out of it. She made it very interesting and fun. Recommend 10/10!

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.

Best math teacher. Math became my son's favorite subject.

"Would 100% reccomend Aimi せんせい to any student looking to learn everything from conversational phrases/basics to someone looking to becoming fluent in the language.

Having almost no experience with the language, within the first 5 weeks of learning from Aimi せんせい, I have made tremendous strides in learning Japanese, so much so that I've decided to continue taking lessons beyond the first 5.

During each lesson, in addition to having a well structured learning plan, Aimi is amazing at explaining the cultural origins or words/phrases as well as some of the more nuanced aspects of the language. In addition to this, she also is very responsive over text, and is able to answer any questions I might have throughout the week (outside of lessons).

Lastly, I think the best part of these lessons are that they are fun, instant feedback and learning goals oriented, and that she changes the lesson/matches the pace the student is trying to/learning at.

ありがとうございました, せんせい!"

"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."

"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."
