Hello! I’m John and I teach Japanese full-time!
I also work as a part time dialect coach teaching actors how to speak Japanese for TV shows!

I specialize in teaching Japanese as a foreign language. I have lived in both America and Japan and I am fluent in Japanese and English. I have been working in language education for over 10 years and I have a degree in History and Japanese Language with awards for excellence in Japanese. I also have taken classes in Japanese voice acting where I worked alongside a professional voice actor!

Not only have I worked with countless language learners helping them pass the various levels of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, but I have also helped place many students in Japanese language programs at prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Waseda, and Oxford Universities as well.

I absolutely love teaching the Japanese language to students of all ages and meeting new people from all over the world!

My services include but are not limited to:
-Japanese language tutoring
-Japanese conversation practice
-JLPT test preparation (N5 - N1)
-Kanji test preparation
-Speech contest preparation
-Correcting pronunciation issues

I offer a wide variety of classes through the Wyzant Online Classroom, Skype and Google Meet with a wide variety of detailed PowerPoints and worksheets specially tailored to each individual student.
Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I always enjoy guiding students to not only passing tests, but helping them become both competent and intuitive in the Japanese language. Helping others learn and grow is so important to me.

I have carefully selected and prepared lessons for each level of Japanese, however I always tailor each lesson to each individual student because not every person learns a language the same way. I want to help you find which way works best for you. If you have anything specific that you would like to study, please let me know before your class and I will be happy to make a lesson to meet your personal needs.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I am currently taking Japanese courses at Harvard and applying for a fellowship in Japan, tutoring with John has set me up for success as he provides constant encouragement and an array of study techniques and resources. He is also very knowledgeable about Japanese customs and norms, which is helpful in understanding the correct formality when speaking to a native Japanese speaker.

Dream Tutor

I've only just begun with John, but I can safely say he is a one of a kind tutor. His knowledge, teaching skills and patience are unbeatable. He creates a safe place for you when learning and makes it a lot of fun. I'm always excited for our next session. I will be continuing my lessons with him for a long time.

Amazing Japanese Teacher

I started taking lessons from John about two years ago and it was such a great decision for my language learning journey! I feel as though I have made so much progress in learning the language and I was exposed to so much new vocabulary and grammar. John's lessons allow you to build all the skills you need to be experienced at Japanese, such as listening, reading, and communication. I had to meet with the Japanese advisor at my college for a placement test and was told that my reading comprehension was impressive, and it's all because of these lessons. Not only that, there were many times where I had to cancel, reschedule, or change the time of our lessons, and, every time, John was very kind and accommodating. Overall, I think it is a very good idea to take lessons from John because they are so fun and you will be able to learn a lot more Japanese!

Outstanding Japanese language savant!!!!

Honestly, everything about John is terrific. He mainly helped me with grammar and sentence structure. As a beginner, I fully understood everything he taught me. John is patient, kind, and humble. Definitely will work with John again!

Excellent service

Very flexible and gives you options to start off. No judgement with him where you are in learning. Very friendly and easy to talk to. Would highly recommend him!

Great patient, prepared and knowledgeable

John is a great tutor. I've been seeing him for a year and a half now. I started with a different tutor and switched to John later on. And boy am I glad I did. I was doing a lot of learning on my own, but I truly believe switching to John is what really made the difference in me learning Japanese. He is always prepared for lessons with powerpoints and other helpful tips. I can't believe I'm almost finished with the first textbook when 2 years ago that seemed so daunting. He's also just super friendly, easy to get along with and really encouraging. I look forward to our weekly lesson!

Knowledgeable and Easy going

My first meeting with John was great. We discussed my long term goal and set some reason short term goals as well to keep the motivation high. During our lesson he was patient, encouraging, gave useful feedback and had great memorization hacks. I am excited to continue lessons with him.

The best Japanese tutor you'll ever find!

John is a great amalgamation of patience, knowledge, and ability! He always makes sure that the pace you're going at is right for you, and that you're getting the absolute most out of the time you have! I highly recommend contacting John for lessons!

Awesome tutor!

My 12 year old son loves John finds him very knowledgeable! He says that his curriculum is amazing. He loves being able to talk to him and get direct feedback. He had been learning these languages on his own for a while through books and apps but finds the tutoring by John to be much much better. We will continue on with John for a long time I am sure!
