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.

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 anymo

clear explanation and masterful direction

Ueno san is very clear about what he wants you to learn, what the particulars of verbs and conjugation are, and addresses important details between written, spoken, and printed language

Kayle, 27 lessons with Kazumasa

Kind and thoughtful tutor

Ueno san is kind and very patient. He is easy to talk with and is great at explaining confusing or difficult concepts. He was able to assess the level of Japanese I had and then began tailoring lessons to me and helped me practice using elements of grammar I found difficult. He's really great!

Kyle, 5 lessons with Kazumasa

greetings, conversation, adjectives and numbers

Ueno san is very understanding, patient, and thorough with his lesson. We covered some basic phrasing for adjectives, how to count up to 99, and reviewed last week's basics

Kayle, 27 lessons with Kazumasa

Very kind and straightforward

Kasumasa covered the basics on lesson 1 - From characters to simple subject verb phrases in a very natural and patient manner. He was very approachable and explained concepts in a way that makes sense to those outside of the Japanese culture.

Great!

he is so kind! Working with him is very easy. I have learning disabilities so I need a lot of explaining and he has been so understanding and helpful. Going slow whenever i need it or repeating things multiple times if i ask. Really recommend him!

First Lesson

Kazu continues to show his specialties in teaching Japanese. His tactics of rigorous practice and implementation of Japanese culture in his teachings remain unrivaled!

Caters the class to your liking

Mr. Ueno(san) quickly has addressed a lot of my language needs in a few weeks. He established a great system of starting with conversation and then we go over grammar/language structures. He challenges me. He gives me very useful practice so I can speak correctly.

Kazu-sensei is amazing!

Been learning from Kazu- sensei for over 6 months and my Japanese has been improving a lot! My wife is Japanese and I can actually communicate with her family, which is a pretty big deal for me. I cannot thank Kazu-sensei enough for all the patience, caring in pushing me when needed and dedication. Thank you sir!

Thomas, 19 lessons with Kazumasa

Helpful and patient!

He began me at a very easy paced study of hiragana and we progressed into phrases, proper grammar as well as some katakana. He also answered any questions I have. He is an outstanding sensei!!!

Zoe, 13 lessons with Kazumasa

excellent tutor

We chose Kazu after reviewing his detailed profile and amazing reviews. Our experience with him confirms we made the right choice. Kazu taught my son beginner Japanese. It's his first Japanese lesson. From my observation, Kazu is very experienced and very approachable. My son thinks Kazu is a very nice teacher and taught him a lot in one hour. We look forward to the next lesson with Kazu!
