I have 9+ years experience in Japanese tutoring. I am a Native Japanese with Master's Degree in Education & Counseling, and BA in Psychology Major and Sociology Minor. My students in the past were from different parts of the US and various age groups/communities, (Young children, School/College Students, Adult learners, Seniors and also for a company), on 1-on-1 or in group settings. Study materials can be in a variety of forms - Textbooks, Video, Manga/Anime, song, flashcards etc as you prefer and depending on your learning styles. I also have knowledge in teaching the JLPT exam of all levels N1-N5.

I have taught and continuously would like to teach all age groups and levels for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced. My teaching style is not only limited to teach grammar and vocabulary, but I would love to share Japanese culture, customs, Anime/Manga, video games, music, food, today's news or fun and crazy trends in Japan.

How to learn the Japanese the fun way? I can help! I believe the answer is to keep your interest, curiosity and motivation up while you are learning Japanese. I am excellent at keeping your enthusiasm up by utilizing every aspect of both traditional and present-day Japanese culture. What else would be helpful? Your curiosity and love for Japanese is the best factor for a successful learning journey!

Sayaka Rocks!

Sayaka is always incredibly fun to wirk with. She is very kind and very knowledgeable. It’s great to work through the book with a native speaker to coach me , practice conversation with, and even learn some more colloquial aspects of the language.

Ben, 32 lessons with Sayaka

Enthusiastic and flexible

She is quite willing to work with an old fellow who has a very disorganized background in Japanese, and help him figure out to reach his goal of relative fluency.

Mrs. Sayaka is the best !

This is my third consecutive week learning Nihingo. I went from simple greetings to building sentences . Who knew Japanese would be so addicting! Mrs. Sayaka is really patient & goes out of her ways to help. She’s knowledgeable about Japan ,the culture , traditions , and anime ! Mrs. Sayaka has helped expand my Japanese in such a short amount of time . Every lesson is full is educational, fun and full of laughs. As your student I look forward to mastering nihingo . Arigato Sayaka sensei.

Awesome tutor!

Sayaka さん Is very nice and fun to work with. It feels like I'm learning from a friend rather than just another teacher! I really look forward to our next sessions!

Knowledgeable and kind

My daughter and her friend enjoy having classes with Sayaka. She is knowledgeable and kind with teenagers:) She also taught them about the culture and Japaneese food. Overall the kids are very happy with their class and each week they are learning fun exciting stuff!

Claire, 32 lessons with Sayaka

Personable and easy to communicate with

Sayaka helped me understand the grammar and point out important things in casual conversation to watch out for. She is patient and encouraging and is open to changing directions when going through lessons when I need more clarification on other things.

Teresa, 7 lessons with Sayaka

Amazing

My 15-year-old son is learning so fast and loves his lessons with Sayaka. He takes video lessons two times a week, and he looks forward to each one. Sayaka is patient and skilled.

My son, (6) had so much fun in his first Japanese lesson. He said Sayaka was “soooooo sweet and beautiful.” She is patient and very encouraging. He can’t wait for his next class!
