About Noritaka

I have majored in Western Literature (primarily American and British novels) and I have also studied French and Latin in college. After I moved to the U.S., I learned Korean and Spanish.

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 languages for the various group of individuals in private and sometimes I worked for the Japanese language institute as an independent contractor. In addition, I have frequently interpreted for the group of English-speakers, Korean speakers and Japanese speakers over the years.

I would teach Japanese to anyone regardless of your current level; beginners and advanced level learners. In the beginning, we can discuss about your needs and interest so that we can tailor the curriculum together. If you already have any material, we can use them; or I will suggest the textbook we can use during the lesson. Upon request, you can learn Chinese characters during the lessons.

Please let me know if you would like to have a lesson in the morning on weekdays. Certainly we can discuss about it. Furthermore, if you prefer to take online lessons, I can do online lessons morning or evening, too.

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 lesson.

If you would like to learn Japanese from a native speaker, please feel free to contact me. Arigato.
