Bio

Nice to meet you! I'm Mr. R.

Serious about wanting to learn Japanese? Then leave it to me, and let's get to work! Being both certified and having years of experience teaching Japanese both online and in public and private schools, I know all too well the headaches people run into when studying Japanese.

Nice to meet you! I'm Mr. R.

Serious about wanting to learn Japanese? Then leave it to me, and let's get to work! Being both certified and having years of experience teaching Japanese both online and in public and private schools, I know all too well the headaches people run into when studying Japanese. While my journey may be different from yours, most of the hurdles we must face when learning Japanese as native English speakers are the same. After helping others face those challenges for nearly a decade now, I'm confident I can help you improve your Japanese.

Have you ever felt this way before? You want to understand something in Japanese, but every time you ask your teacher or a native speaker, either they have never thought about it before or they don't know how to explain it in a way that really answers the question. If you have, then, believe me, neither you nor the other person is crazy. Most people just aren't aware of their language use, especially if it's their native language. That's where I come in! Having studied Japanese as a second language and using it every day for work and at home with my wife, I'm hyper-sensitive to how Japanese works. I've run into that situation hundreds of times and can promise that my experience will help!

Regardless, if someone like me can complete an intensive Japanese language program, pass the JLPT N1 (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and the OPI Advanced test, then I believe that ANYONE CAN LEARN JAPANESE.

So send me a message sometime and allow me to guide you through your Japanese studies. I'd be honored to work with you.

After having participated in intensive Japanese language classes in Tokyo, studying Japanese at the University of Utah, taking the Level 1 Japanese Language Proficiency test and living abroad for much of my life in Japan, I know many of the struggles and the difficulties people feel when studying Japanese and English as a second language. I know I can help you navigate your way through Japanese as well

Excellent Teacher

I cannot say enough good things about J. He is a fantastic teacher and an amazing person. He knows his Japanese and has broken down the subject matter so it is easy to learn. If you want to learn to speak and read Japanese, he is the best.

Beginning Student

Plans lessons to your experience level. Takes you step by step in what curriculum you want to use and ad's his own resource's. I'm lacking computer skill's and Jay takes time to help you navigate Skype.

Larry, 16 lessons with J. Ring

Two lessons in and already a highlight of my week

Always a class working with Jay Sensei! Lyrical linguistics and nailing translations of interpretations is so much fun always! A few months in, and this is already a highlight of my week. The reviews always make me feel more refined and confident in my skill when we go over them. Always excited for tsugi no crassu!

6 Stars!

From day one, our son has been hooked! He and Jay have connected and Lucas looks forward to his sessions. Thanks to Jay for creating a relaxed and practical way to learn Japanese virtually!

Two lessons in and already a highlight of my week

I really feel I’m starting to pick up momentum working with Jay! Now it’s gotten to the point where I’m starting to feel some sort of tension if I construct sentences incorrectly. The lyric dissection is always a highlight I’m lucky to have twice a week and really gives me insight into the linguistics. Can’t wait for Friday!

Two lessons in and already a highlight of my week

So much fun getting a peak behind the Japanese linguistic curtains! I have another reason to start getting excited for Friday!

Jay is a lot of fun and honestly cracks me up. His lessons are colorful and really in depth. Totemo tanoshimina nda! His virtual whiteboard approach is very effective and his ability to customize a class to your needs display his ability to adapt to the student. I can’t wait to learn more!

The Best!!

J. Ring took the time to find out where my 15 year old grandson was having trouble with his online Japanese course. My grandson is looking forward to future time with j. Ring knowing that he will be able to guide him and help improve his language skills.

Awesome Japanese Teacher

We loved working with J. Ring-san! He made lessons fun and catered to what we were interested in learning. I also found his background in linguistics really helpful in unlocking the puzzle of Japanese syntax.
