Hello! I’m John and I teach Japanese full-time!

I specialize in teaching Japanese as a foreign language. I have lived in both America and Japan and I am fluent in both Japanese and English. I have been working in language education for over 7 years in both America and Japan. I have a degree in both Japanese Language and History with awards for excellence in Japanese language.

My services include but are not limited to:

•Japanese language tutoring
•Japanese conversation practice
•JLPT test preparation
•Kanji test preparation
•Speech contest preparation
•Correcting pronunciation issues

I even expand my services to teaching about things such as Japanese cooking, origami folding, furoshiki wrapping and much more!

I offer a wide variety of classes through the Wyzant Online Classroom, Skype and Google Hangouts with a wide variety of detailed PowerPoints and worksheets specially tailored to each individual student.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I always enjoy guiding students to not only passing tests, but helping them become both competent and intuitive in the Japanese language. Helping others learn and grow is so important to me.

I have carefully selected and prepared lessons for each level of Japanese, however I always tailor each lesson to each individual student because not every person learns a language the same way. I want to help you find which way works best for you. If you have anything specific that you would like to study, please let me know before your class and I will be happy to make a lesson to meet your needs.

Whether you are studying Japanese in school and need help catching up on work, are planning on moving to Japan, or even if you are an adult who is just curious about the language, I would be delighted to help you. I would love to share my knowledge of Japanese language and culture and help you achieve your personal goals.

If you are interested in my services as a Japanese tutor, or any of my other services listed above please send me a message. Feel free to message me for any advice or questions at any time even if you are not taking my classes!

Amazing Teacher

John was extremely friendly and guided me through my first lesson here. He made sure to ask if I had questions and pronounced everything clearly. Will definitely be back for another class!

John B.

John is a great tutor. He is patient and knowledgeable. He provides helpful methods and is encouraging. I'm so glad I happened to find him to prepare for a trip to Japan. I was very discouraged at first but when I found John I knew everything would be okay. I would highly recommend him to a student of any level.

Amazing, kind and accommodating

My wife and I were travelling to Japan and wanted to learn a bit of the language to help us get around. John taught us the basics of grammar, numbers, and common phrases we would need to get around. He was incredibly polite, respectful and encouraging. It was so fun!! We might continue with lessons after we return!

Great Tutor, kind and patient

Mr. John taught me the parts of Japanese I from the Genki handbook that I had missed when I had to withdraw from a class. We did the workbook from the end of chapter 3 and all of chapter 4. John was very encouraging, kind, and patient. He was very knowledgeable and could answer any question I asked him in full detail. He made sure I understood previous concepts before moving on, so it felt like it was perfectly paced. In addition, I had many times where I was grumpy or frustrated, prior to and during the lesson, but he never once acted bothered by it and was very patient and kind to me regardless. By the end of our tutoring sessions, I had an exam that was required for me to move into Japanese II. I passed the exam, and the class, with an A. I'm very happy with John's service and would definitely recommend him to those looking for a Japanese tutor.

Pleasant and intelligent tutor

John was a great tutor. The fact that he is a native English speaker also went a long way in being able to understand what it was I was misunderstanding. Not always something easy to explain to native Japanese speakers unless they have very extensive English experience.

Wonderful Japanese Tutor

He's helping my son with speaking and writing. It has changed his afternoons and his life. Wonderful to see his dedication and progress. So Happy. :) It's what he looks forward to all week - the best gift I could give.

Wonderful tutor!

John just started tutoring my high school son who struggled with his first year of Japanese . After just the first session, John was able to get him engaged and committed to making progress with his Japanese. Great tutor.

Our hero!

My college senior son needed to pass Japanese in order to graduate and receive his degree, but for a variety of (complicated) reasons his 3rd and final quarter of Japanese had been delayed, putting him in the difficult position of needing to catch up after a hiatus. John's tutoring proved to be absolutely indispensable in shepherding him through that final term. He focused on the important matters and was patient and helpful at every step, and my son was able to pass the class and graduate. Highly recommended!

Practical Practice

In grammar exercises and practice, John Sensei provides practical usage in sentences helping to pull together grammar rules, reading and writing. He helps me correctly pronounce words and allows me to hear vocabulary and grammar properly used at the sentence level.
