I have majored in Western Literature (primarily American and British novels) and have also studied French as well as Latin in college. After I moved to the U.S., I learned Korean, Spanish and other languages. While my passion is to continue learning various languages, I love to share Japanese culture and language with people from different cultures. I have taught the diverse group of individuals in private, and sometimes I worked for the Japanese language institution as well as for the companies as an independent contractor. Besides, I have frequently interpreted for the group of English, Korean and Japanese speakers over 15 years.
I would teach Japanese to anyone regardless of your current level. Before we start the lesson, we can personalize the experience based on your needs and interest. Furthermore, I will suggest the textbook during the first lesson. If you wish, I can teach you Chinese characters as well.
I offer assistance to those who are planning to take JLPT 1-5. Feel free to ask me about it.
I am offering online lessons only. Please contact me if you are willing to take online lessons.
Above all, your satisfaction is most important to me. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with my lessons for any reason, I will not charge you for the session.
Lastly, feel free to inform me if you need to have lessons at another time. I may be able to accommodate your schedule.
If you would like to learn Japanese from a native speaker, please contact me. Arigato
I am planning on taking the JLPT in December and will be doing some consulting work in Japan. I sought Noritaka-sensei's help in preparing for the test as well as learning to communicate effectively in Japanese. After 11 lessons, I wholeheartedly recommend him. He is a native Japanese speaker and has studied several languages. His English is fluent, and he understands how to master a language. His teaching style is personable and flexible, and his knowledge of grammar and linguistic fine points is exceptional. I searched diligently for an excellent tutor, and I am very happy I found Noritaka 先生. I look forward to working with him for many more lessons. Whatever level of Japanese instruction you need, Noritaka 先生 is an excellent choice!Peter, 206 lessons with Noritaka
Great first lesson
I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Sensei Noritaka. He has an easy manner and is very clear and logical in his approach to introducing a learner to the various Japanese alphabets and their nuances. I’m very excited for my next lessonOrla, 3 lessons with Noritaka
Super nice guy and patient.
Off to a great start in our first lesson. Encourages questions and is open enough to just laugh and enjoy our time in the lesson. Will be continuing my Japanese language education with him. Would definitely recommend him to any beginners.Elijah, 3 lessons with Noritaka
のりたか先生 is very thorough with his teaching and very patient. He explains things carefully. Five star for sure. I have been working with him for half a year now and will continue to do so.Siyi, 37 lessons with Noritaka
Due to the similarities of Korean and Japanese, I was looking for a tutor who could speak both languages. Noritaka can speak English and Korean fluently, so he mixed them in during my lesson for better explanations on certain things I had a difficult time understanding. I highly recommend!Sunmin, 2 lessons with Noritaka
Flexible with your needs
He is a great teacher. Having studied some Japanese before I still retained some of what I learned and he is working with me to reinforce and make sure I know the basics. So that I one day can aspire to be fluent in Japanese.Austin, 4 lessons with Noritaka

Very Helpful Session!
I really enjoyed my first lesson with Noritaka Sensei. It has been a long time since I studied Japanese and I feel like I'm well on my way to improving my Japanese language skills. I'm very much looking forward to the next session!Sherri, 2 lessons with Noritaka
conversation & grammar practice.
Worked on grammar that I’ve learned but don’t normally use. This has helped me bring it more into my conversation.Eduardo, 11 lessons with Noritaka
Noritaka-Sensei has been awesomely patient and knowledgeable in explaining Japanese concepts concisely and with wider real-life examples to further illustrate contexts. He is very resourceful in explaining even the tiniest nuances I felt unclear on, and he’s a lot of fun to talk to as well. Very satisfied, very highly recommended!!Jean, 28 lessons with Noritaka
