I am a native Japanese speaker and translator living in the United State. I have 2 years of experience to teach Japanese language to American high school students. During my college days, I assisted the Japanese class instructor and helped college students to read, write and speak Japanese. I have been tutoring on Wyzant for about one and a half years. Now I teach Japanese community education classes at two locations.

I studied linguistics in the United States and one of the linguistics classes I took was Applied Linguistics, basically how to teach foreign languages. I chose Japanese and ended up with getting self-published with a Japanese grammar book, "Speak Like Native Speakers Japanese Verb Conjugation I."

I want my students to enjoy learning Japanese, because it is fun to learn a foreign language. For beginner students, I can offer the lessons starting from the very basic grammar, greetings, numbers, the letter Hiragana, Katakana, and so on. For advanced students, reading lessons are available. We can read the Japanese book "Kiri no mukou no fushigina machi," which targets Japanese 4th or 5th graders to read. Or "Akage no Anne," the Japanese translation of "Anne of Green Gables," can be your textbook.

Let me help you to speak real Japanese. Your life will be more colorful.

Excellent Japanese tutor who knows what she's talking about!

Isoko is an amazing tutor. Not only is she easy to talk to, she also knows what she's talking about. She's even published a great Japanese textbook. Isoko is very patient with me even though I ask her a lot of questions. She is very encouraging and as a generally shy person, I feel comfortable speaking in Japanese with her. She is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling and location for lessons. If you are looking for Japanese tutoring at any level, she is definitely the one to go to!

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Emma. You are wonderful student, too! To have an advanced student like you, who spent a year in Japan, is a great opportunity for me to grow as a Japanese tutor. Thank you very much!

Great Japanese Tutor

Our twelve year old Daughter just had her first tutoring lesson for Japanese with Isoko and we are very pleased! "Isoko is nice, very patient, is from Japan so knows about the culture too. I've only had one leason so far but she is great, and she definitely has the equipment (sheets you can study, text book etc.) all in all she is a great tutor." - Teresa

Margo, 32 lessons with Isoko

Adapts to meet my daughter's needs, very flexible and kind.

Showing my daughter all kinds of options, starting with basics but also changing if she asks for something different. She has been very patient and flexible with where and when we meet and is always there early with materials all set up!
