About John

Hello! I’m John and I am a full-time Japanese teacher. 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. My services include Japanese tutoring, speech contest preparation, JLPT preparation, teaching kanji and correcting pronunciation issues. I even expand my services to teaching about things such as Japanese cooking, origami folding, furoshiki wrapping and much more!

I have a degree in both Japanese Language and History with awards for excellence in Japanese language.

I have been working in language education for over 6 years in both America and Japan.

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!

I teach both online classes and at home.

Great teacher

John is teaching me Japanese. He's really patient with me when I'm trying to remember things. It takes me a bit sometimes to respond and he never rushes me. I am also a student who gets bored if things are too easy, but can also get frustrated if I don't feel successful. John challenges me just enough to make me feel like I am really successful in learning, without feeling like I am always failing
