I am a Japanese national and have been living in the United States since 2001. I currently live in San Diego, California.
I graduated college in Japan and my major was education. My courses focused on international culture and the classes prepared me to teach the Japanese language and culture to foreigners.
I am currently teaching more than 30 classes a week including classes at a language school and private in-home and online tutoring, So far, through the many years of being a tutor, l have taught and am still currently teaching Americans, 2nd and 3rd generation Japanese-Americans, British, Chinese, Koreans, Philippinos, Taiwanese and others, ranging from elementary students to retirees privately and tutored them in various aspects of Japanese depending on their individual needs through English instruction. However, I am currently only accepting those students who are in high school or above.
The thing I love most about tutoring is seeing the face and eyes of a student that has been having a difficult time with a lesson, when he/she finally grasps what I have been trying to teach them. Another favorite thing about tutoring is watching the evolution of a student over time and knowing that I am solely responsible for that progression.

I am very thorough and patient when it comes to tutoring my students. I will go to any length to make sure that whatever it is that I am teaching them will be absorbed by them resulting in their betterment, thereby building a sound foundation from which to build.

Let's start broadening your Japanese conversation by talking about what interests you the most right now! Please feel free to contact me to help you achieve your goals!

For beginner level learners
One of my study materiels when I was learning English was listening to a radio program for English learners broadcasted weekdays. The radio personality wrote a message in the monthly issued textbook that said, "Someday, the day will come when you can feel that all your devotion to your language study would not be a burden anymore". I still clearly remember this message because the day certainly came to me and I am very happy now what I strived for. I hope you will be able to feel the same way in your bright future.

For intermediate level learners
This class is for people who already have a grasp on basic grammar. We will practice conversation using the textbook and what has already been learned. We will also study more advanced vocabulary, expressions and kanji.

For advanced level learners ($50.00 per hour)
In this class, we will focus on increasing your Japanese level further. There will not be a predetermined textbook, so we will use study materiels from whatever genre you are interested in, such as news articles, books and novels. There is no end to learning a language, no matter what level you are, you will always be able to satisfy your curiosity for learning Japanese.

First lesson

Kazumasa gave me enough work to be a little challenging but not difficult. Mostly because I need to learn the Hiragana and Katakana. He is patient and I look forward to more lessons.

Mike, 6 lessons with Kazumasa

Fantastic!

Excellent tutor. Drastically increased the speed of my progression into Japanese language. Very helpful with pronunciation. Patient and willing to cover things multiple times. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn Japanese.

Jeffrey, 13 lessons with Kazumasa

Knowledgeable and flexible tutor

Kazumasa Sensei is a native speaker and a full-time teacher as well. My learning strategy has been studying books by myself and focus on conversation, he's clarifying all my questions and suggesting things beyond the basic book teachings.

Cleber, 19 lessons with Kazumasa

Great teacher

He really helps you understand the topics in Japanese that are difficult. He went through adjectives and I can even complete sentences now in Japanese. He’s a wonderful teacher!

Caleb, 37 lessons with Kazumasa

Terrific Japanese teacher!

I am an ancient person, but with Kazumasa's patient skill, even I am making progress at learning Japanese. He is especially good at pacing the lessons just at the right rate so that I am challenged but not overwhelmed. Also, he often adds additional explanations of expressions that are commonly used but are not explained in the textbooks.

Ellen, 41 lessons with Kazumasa

Terrific teacher!

5 stars with no doubt! Kazu san is a patient, reliable and highly experienced teacher. He covers all of the levels from the beginner to the advanced. I definitely recommend him for any kind of Japanese learning.

Jeong Suh, 38 lessons with Kazumasa

Expert tutor!

Kazu met me at my level of nihongo and was very patient in teaching me new items and grammar. Also, he is systems-based which I appreciate. I feel I have a path to follow. Arigato gozaimasu!
