Although I spent over 20 years at a Japanese corporation as a "salaryman", my passion has always been teaching and languages. I have been teaching for over 5 years now while working as a freelance translator, primarily for Japanese magazines. I incorporate a little Japanese history and culture into my lessons so that students can more easily understand and remember words and expressions and also to keep the lesson fun and interesting. Let's learn one of the most beautiful languages in the world with an experienced tutor with vast knowledge of the Japanese culture and history !

Japanese
I was born and raised in Tokyo and studied at a Japanese university majoring in law and minoring in Japanese history and literature before working at one of Japan's oldest corporations for over 20 years. I have most recently been teaching Japanese to junior high students at a Japanese school, while tutoring high school students and adults at their homes. My experience teaching and tutoring different levels of Japanese hepls me to customize my lessons to each student's individual needs. I believe my experience growing up and working in Japan and my diverse teaching experience will benefit students of all ages who seek to improve their Japanese and better communicate with Japanese people. I have a certification of Step 2nd grade in "Kanji Kentei" or Standard Test of Kanji (Chinese characters).
