Introduction: I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan, graduated from the literature department of Waseda University, 50 years young. I realize learning another language is tough and requires patience a lot from my experience in learning English. I will 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 and consultation via the internet or phone, FaceTime is free. I am sure that lessons gonna be fun! Lessons are online only.

Japanese Lessons

Komatsu Sensei is very helpful and patient. I’m currently bad at conversations in Japanese but I can feel that I’m getting improved through the lessons.

Akira is very prompt in his communication and well-prepared for lessons. My son was so excited after his first lesson with Akira and we are looking forward to working with him. He was very patient and professional.

Japanese Lessons

Absolutely thankful to have found Akira to help my 10 year old to learn Japanese language. I know Akira is accomplished in so many other fields but it’s so nice to watch him take the time to ask my daughter how her weeks been and remember small details of her week. It makes her feel extremely special. Hoping this journey with Akira as my daughters language teacher continues.
