Hello,

My name is Akihiko. If you are looking for a Japanese or math tutor in the Longmont area (Boulder, Loveland, Lafayette) here I am!

I am a mechanical engineer with math and aerospace minors who just graduated with honors from University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I also have an associate's in business from Pikes Peak Community College. My GPA was 3.94. I won the Colorado Engineering Council Award, am a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and and was recognized by the National Society of Leadership and Success. I tutored college math (algebra and calculus) to several students when I was a student. I was also a Japanese conversation partner for several students. I believe everybody has a different learning style, so I adjust my teaching style as I get to know the student. I like it when students come up with their own questions or homework beforehand, so that we have specific items to focus on. When I don't know the answer right away, I will tell you I don't know, and then work to find the answer for you. I like to use a variety of resources.

I am a native speaker of Japanese. I have completed an ESL program so I understand how it feels to learn a foreign language well. I enjoy sharing not only the language but the culture. My lessons focus on more useful conversational Japanese than text book Japanese, but I am happy to address any class requirements. I understand most common issues Americans encounter because my wife is an American who lived in Japan for 4 years, and I have taught her Japanese.

I am available evenings and weekends.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Aki

Michelle, 3 lessons with Akihiko

Aki is marvelous at teaching Japanese and makes it really easy to go fast :)

Akihiko has already taught me way more than I would have expected in just my first two lessons. He is super friendly and really knows how to sequence things so that you get the most important, practical stuff first. I highly recommend him if you are looking to learn Japanese.

So patient and makes learning difficult subjects fun and enjoyable!

I really enjoyed my session with Aki. I found the materials he brought really useful and helpful for gauging my level of Japanese ability, and it was a pleasant experience overall. Thank you Aki for going the extra mile and compiling materials for our lesson and for being a great tutor! I can't wait for more lessons!

Enjoyable and useful lesson

Aki has clearly put some time and effort into putting together study materials to suit my needs. He made our lesson very interesting and focused on teaching me things that will be most useful for my upcoming trip to Hokkaido, e.g. how to make sure my rental car has 4WD :)

Adam, 5 lessons with Akihiko

Super friendly and easy going. Incredibly knowledgeable.

I would immediately recommend Aki to anyone if they are interested in learning Japanese language or culture. He is very friendly and helpful. It really feels like we work together to come up with custom teaching for what I am most interested in. I really look forward to our lessons. He is a great guy, trust me.

A Serious Tutor and Friendly Person

Hello, Aki and I have tutored for 3 sessions now. He adapts to my style, he evaluates me frankly, he keeps things light and interesting, he is not afraid to go off script and yet he prepares for every lesson. He holds me to account for my memory/recall. His English skill is amazing, he is highly intelligent. I'm really happen to have found Aki.

Andy, 2 lessons with Akihiko

Highly recommend!

Aki is a really good teacher and he's not too easy on you, but also not so hard that you're overwhelmed. I'm definitely learning with him! Highly recommended!
