Hello! My name is Elissa. I was born and raised in Okinawa, Japan and currently a resident of the U.S. with a background in business. I am a Native Japanese Speaker, fluent in both English and Japanese.I specialize in Japanese Tutoring and Interpreting.

I have been providing Japanese Language Interpreting and Translation services prior to and during official court proceedings since 2008. I have been tutoring Japanese in the United States since 2011 and have 5 years of experience teaching Japanese to students in Japan. I help my students prepare to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Tests. My experiences also include organizing a trip to Japan and assisting my clients as an interpreter.I enjoy teaching my native language and culture.

As a private tutor, I design each curriculum and tailor lesson plans to meet each students needs while retaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I strongly believe that repetition is key to learning a new language. My teaching philosophy is based on respect for the students. I believe it is crucial for the teacher to believe in the student's ability and to encourage them in their studies.

If you are interested in my services I would be more than happy to serve you as your Japanese tutor. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need some advice on studying Japanese or learning the culture!

Thank you!
Elissa

Great Tutor!

We had our first Japanese lesson and Elissa brought so much enthusiasm and energy to the hour. My son is still practicing what he learned a few hours ago. Elissa is a native speaker but thoroughly bilingual and very knowledgeable about Japanese culture.

Wonderful Tutor

Elissa is a wonderful Japanese tutor. We are so fortunate to have found her on Wyzant. Our son loves her teaching method and enjoys that he is actually starting to speak Japanese. I would highly recommend Elissa.

Greatest Tutor Ever!

Our son has a difficult time gaining trust with anyone in an educators role. Since Elissa has been working with him he has almost become a different type of student. He literally comes home excited and enthusiastic about continuing his studies. Our thanks goes to Elissa for being such a great role model, educator, and support for our son. He is truly inspired! Thanks so much Elissa you are a true teacher in every sense of the word.
