I love teaching/tutoring Japanese language, literature, and culture. I am a native Japanese with a BA in Japanese literature in Japan, with a Japanese teaching credential for Japanese Junior High and High School. I also hold a BS in Computer Science from a US university and 20 years of experience in the computer industry. After Engineering and Technical Business careers at Apple, Xilinx and start-up companies, I have been focusing on teaching Japanese language, literature, and cultural arts for 17 years in the Bay Area and Chicagoland. Due to demand for business communication, I also teach business Japanese.

I do personal private and group class tutoring. Currently, I am available in the Bay Area by appointment. Video tutoring is available from anywhere.

Japanese language and culture are fun, practical and interesting to learn. Whatever your motivation or need is, it is a great opportunity to study the art of life in language. Let's have fun.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Good Japanese Tutor

Ms Akiko-san is very knowledgeable and patient with me. I learned not only the Romanji, Katakana and Hitagana way of Japanese vocabulary but also the Kanji way. She even went to translate the whole paragraph of Kiitagana into Kanji-based one for me to know the normal Japanese-way of writing.

Tutor who understand the business

Thanksful to her ample experience in the IT industry, i am learning not only the language but the business culture as well. Since I am learning both for the business and exam taking, Akiko san has a perfect combination of native Japanese language and understanding of business culture, which also covers the US and the Asia.

Akiko-san is very helpful

I needed an introduction to basic courtesies for an upcoming business trip. She taught me about greetings and introductions, and a few of the subtleties involved. I think I will be able to better show respect to my Japanese colleagues. It is amazing how much I was able to learn quickly from Akiko-san.
