Let's work out together, enjoy learning a very interesting language.

Let me tell you a little bit about my background.

I grew up in Japan and moved to Georgia in 2007. Since then, I lived in Florida, moved to San Paulo Brazil, backed to Tokyo Japan, and finally came back to Arizona in 2013.
I’ve been teaching Japanese since 2017 for 14 years!

I received my certification as a Japanese language teacher from the Human Academy in 2005. I graduated with a degree in English, American literature, and education from Tohoku Gakuin University - also in Sendai, Japan.

I know studying a foreign language can be very challenging, but at the same time, it can also be a lot of fun!
I overcame many problems when I first studied English as a student myself in Japan.
Also, I've been studying Spanish as my 3rd language for 3 years! I understand the problems and the frustration of my students because I have a lot of same experiences as a student.

I have taught very advanced students who are college students, high school students, businessmen in their 50's and children as young as five years old. I have met a lot of great students.

I love to teach Japanese and I would welcome the opportunity to help you learn a very beautiful and interesting language with a long and culturally rich background.

OPen-minded, flexible, patient and smart.

Mika adapted herself to my needs. She showed flexibility and patience, besides scholarship. I planned one short program but I've learned so much I've extended it.

Dom, 3 lessons with Mika

Best tutor!

We worked on lesson 12 from Genki textbook. She is always so patient and explains concepts in a very clear manner. I feel more confident in my Japanese language skills. I’m enjoying my sessions very much.

Caroline, 26 lessons with Mika

Very nice and kind!

Mika was very nice and welcoming in the first lesson. She started off by asking some questions to get to know me and then we eventually got into the lesson. She was very nice about everything and it was a fun lesson.

Mika San: Japanese

Mika San taught me introducing myself where I'm from and what I do for a living. What I like is that we get a lot done within the hour we have together and she's also a fast pace teacher which I love. And we practice a lot in my pronunciation of the Japanese language it was fun

Stygma, 6 lessons with Mika

Excellent tutor

Mika can quickly assess level and knows what needs additional review and emphasis. She is good at teaching both speaking and reading Japanese. I highly recommend her as a tutor.
