Introduction
With over 400 hours of Japanese teaching experience via Wyzant Tutoring, I will help instill confidence in you that you can learn Japanese and also make it fun! What makes me unique as a tutor is that I was born and raised in Japan and have Japanese native-level mastery (in terms of grammar, pronunciation and cultural understanding). Students have shared that they have appreciated my ability to answer questions regarding grammar clearly. I cater my lessons to each student and try to incorporate a variety of learning techniques. I also speak French proficiently and am currently learning Spanish, so I have insight into what it's like to learn a new language as an adult.

Marisa worked with me and my two sons over Zoom for several months with Japanese. She’s super organized with her program. She had us buy a workbook that she led us through in our weekly sessions so everything felt super organized and purposeful. She also added flair to our weekly lessons by incorporating videos and games in the sessions - wow!! As you know, with any language there are connotations (positive and negative) and she was skillful in directing us the proper terminologies when there were multiple options and their degree of formality or secondary meanings (like numbers, greetings etc) she’s super knowledgeable, friendly, patient and professional. Thanks Marisa!

Marisa is very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about Japanese culture. I had fun picking her brain about Japan, and learning the language. Highly recommend!
