I am retired from teaching, but I missed teaching. I enjoyed teaching very much, not only because I am teaching what I know, but I love to share my knowledge on subject matters with my students. My first priority is to find out what the students want. In private tutoring setting, I focus on what they need, and how they can achieve their goals. I will provide them with materials I have accumulated for the last 20+ years in terms of making learning fun and easy. Students have to buy a text book from any book stores.

Minimum lesson is 1 hour duration. Cancellation policy: if student cancel the lesson in less than 3 hours before actual lesson time, s/he will be charged $25 for the cancellation fee.

Table Tennis

Table Tennis

I have played table tennis during my high school days for only a year and a half and reached the final in regional tournament and at a college for 2 years in Japan. I have coached high school students when I was in Japan and three middle school students in Santa Ana and presently adult students at YMCA in Torrance. I go to out of state for a senior tournament once a year and top 3 finishers in men's single, men's doubles and mixed doubles events for the last 4 years. It is very important to have a good swing/stroke form in the beginning because once you got bad forms or habits, it is too difficult to correct.

Very knowledgeable

Had a great experience. I needed help from someone who had expertise, not just a native speaker. If you need someone with a lot of knowledge, he is the right choice.

Michael, 1 lesson with Hiro

Superbly entertaining tutor

I really like Hiro's style. He expects you to do your homework (review the material), but as soon as a session starts he just jumps in and for the next hour it's a non-stop interactive adventure. You barely notice the time pass. He provides additional material to learn and he is accommodating to your choice of a textbook. Highly recommend.

Alexander, 9 lessons with Hiro

Great to speak in Japanese for an hour!

We worked on conversation and reviewed my textbooks from college; he was a good tutor. Arigato, Hiro-san! I will look at my schedule and make another appointment.

Jayme, 1 lesson with Hiro

A lots of patience.

My daughter was shy and embarrassed to be exposed to the situation that she had to communicate even when she doesn't know the language others speak. However he showed a great patience and was nice to her. Thank him a lot for that.

Noriko, 6 lessons with Hiro

Knowledgeable and ability to teach is very good!

My 13 year old is just beginning from zero to learn Japanese. All good!! He starts with the basics and works up from there. He is patient and eager to teach. we haven't tried any other tutors as Hiro seems to be just fine!

Lisa, 6 lessons with Hiro

... Hiro is the best!

In a matter of a few tutoring sessions, I have learned more Japanese than in months of taking an online course. Hiro is terrific, patient and has a great sense of humor. I make my living as a teacher and from one teacher to another, Hiro is outstanding. Ichiban ii!!

Great Japanese Teacher!

Great at communication regarding schedule and my son loves his sessions with Hiro! He is patient, encouraging and knowledgeable in his way of teaching. Very happy to have his help for our 13 year old!

Carla, 8 lessons with Hiro

Hiro has a gift for teaching

Hiro is amazing. I'm learning Japanese with him and he is on point. He gives you exactly what you need to improve Japanese. Very professional. I have eight months to study Japanese before I go to Japan for work, but I think Hiro will help me A LOT with my Japanese if I continue to work with him.

Daim, 17 lessons with Hiro

Great Instructor

Hiro is a great instructor and fun to learn from! He has fairly flexible hours, will review content as much as you like/need, and he'll will work through a curriculum, or individual topics/ideas to fit your learning needs.
