About Kaoru

Hello, I am so thrilled that you are interested in learning Japanese! I am a Japanese native, born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. After I graduated from college, I worked as a montessori teacher at a kindergarten in Tokyo. I absolutely loved teaching little children, yet after a few years, I decided to accompany my American husband and moved to Boston, MA. I then studied Graphic Design and became a graphic designer in the Bay Area. I am a mother of two college-aged children, and a golden retriever. I love Japanese language, culture, and food. If you have the passion to learn Japanese and Japanese culture, I would be delighted and honored to be your tutor! Hello, I am so thrilled that you are interested in learning Japanese!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Japanese

I am a Japanese native and once was a Montessori kindergarten teacher in Tokyo. After I moved to CA, I had an opportunity to be a Japanese instructor at a private language school in Bay Area where I taught conversational Japanese both at corporate classroom settings and private homes. Though my career then turned and I became a graphic designer, my love for Japanese language and culture had never changed. I am a creative individual who believes in fun in every learning and would welcome the new opportunity to help students who chose to explore Japanese language and culture!

Kaoru-san is a gifted tutor of the Japanese language. My goal was to learn a little bit of the language so that I could "get by" in casual conversa ...
