About Noritaka

I have majored in Western Literature (primarily American and British novels) and I 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 various group of individuals in private and sometimes I worked for the Japanese language institution as well as for the companies as an independent contractor. In addition, I have frequently interpreted for the group of English, Korean and Japanese speakers over the period of 15 years.

I would teach Japanese to anyone regardless of your current level. Before we start the lesson, we can personalize the lesson based upon your needs and interest. If you have any material, we may be able to use it; otherwise, I will suggest the textbook in the first lesson. If you wish, I can teach you Chinese characters as well.

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 lesson. In addition, feel free to ask me if you can have lessons at different time. I may be able to accommodate your schedule.

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

Effective Japanese Tutor

i have worked with Noritaka Sensei on line for several weeks. I lived in Japan 40 years ago and have decided to review my Japanese to make my first trip back since college more fun and meaningful. Sensei has worked with me 2-3 times per week and the sessions are fun and I am making much faster progress than I had hoped. Noritaka Sensei effectively uses a textbook at times and at other times just
