Hello! I’m John and I teach Japanese full-time!
I also work as a part time dialect coach teaching actors how to speak Japanese for TV shows!

I specialize in teaching Japanese as a foreign language. I have lived in both America and Japan and I am fluent in Japanese and English. I have been working in language education for over 8 years. I have a degree in History and Japanese Language with awards for excellence in Japanese. I also have taken classes in Japanese voice acting where I worked alongside a professional voice actor!

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 personal 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 goal

Knowledgeable and Easy going

My first meeting with John was great. We discussed my long term goal and set some reason short term goals as well to keep the motivation high. During our lesson he was patient, encouraging, gave useful feedback and had great memorization hacks. I am excited to continue lessons with him.

The best Japanese tutor you'll ever find!

John is a great amalgamation of patience, knowledge, and ability! He always makes sure that the pace you're going at is right for you, and that you're getting the absolute most out of the time you have! I highly recommend contacting John for lessons!

Awesome tutor!

My 12 year old son loves John finds him very knowledgeable! He says that his curriculum is amazing. He loves being able to talk to him and get direct feedback. He had been learning these languages on his own for a while through books and apps but finds the tutoring by John to be much much better. We will continue on with John for a long time I am sure!

Agreeable and intelligent

John was open and friendly, I really enjoyed our first lesson together. I didn't realize I knew as much as I did. John dragged the answers out of me gently and I felt no judgement when I admitted I didn't know the answer. I am looking forward to the next lesson.

First Lesson and My son is so happy!

John helped my son with his homework and gave him the confidence he needs to continue with something that takes practice, dedication and resilience. He now has someone he can use to assist him when he runs into road blocks. So thankful for John B.

Goes at my quick pace and is great at teaching me exactly what I want to learn

John adapts to learning pace and material that the student wishes to go over. I happen to learn very quickly, and John had no problem zooming through material at the rate that kept me stimulated. He also let me essentially lead the direction of the content we went over. This is great, because I have a specific idea of what I want to learn before I go on my trip to Japan, and so John helped me figure out the Japanese phrases and vocabulary I need to know before I go and began to teach me the important things like sentence structures most commonly used in Japan, how to order sushi there, and more.

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!
