Introduction: (Lessons are ONLINE ONLY; please message me only if a student is thinking about seriously taking classes and don't message me about tourism, translation nor interpretation service.) I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan living in Los Angeles, graduated from the literature department of Waseda University. I realize learning another language is tough and requires patience a lot from my experience in learning English. Every student different. I have my own curriculum and also make worksheets for each student’s interest too. I listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. I try to listen and understand what my student is interested in and which direction she/he wants to go. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions. Call or text me anytime. 30 min sample lesson for $20 via Zoom. I am sure that lessons gonna be fun! I use GENKI as a textbook. Lessons are online only.

Akira has been exceptionally professional, communicative and friendly. Our son will be taking Japanese as a high schooler next year and so he is getting a jump start with lessons this summer. Akira gave us all of the information needed on what work books to get, online tutorials, and the lessons are fun, per our son. Highly recommend.

I’ve been learning Japanese with Akira for the last 2 months and I love, I like that we set the pace depending on how I’m doing and it’s becoming a routine already which is essential when learning a new language. The lessons are diverse, dynamic and it’s a pleasure to keep on learning.

Akira was able to assess my daughter's level of fluency very quickly and efficiently devised a plan to further her progress in a way that works well for us. We are looking forward to continuing lessons!

My son really enjoyed his first lesson learning Japanese. He’s traveling to Japan and we wanted him to be able to understand the language. Akira does an amazing job teaching Japanese. I highly recommend his tutoring.
