Introduction: *** A free introductory lesson (includes consultation) is available now!! *** Hi, I'm Yoko. I'm a native Japanese speaker, born in Japan. I attended school and college in Japan. Now, I am living in the States with my family. Being a native Japanese, I am a fluent speaker of all levels of the Japanese language. I've been teaching the Japanese language for three years (since 2019). I became a certified Japanese language teacher in March 2020. I have also been teaching English as a second language for six years. I understand the challenges of learning a second language and I'm able to help students keep moving forward. In the lessons, we will have discussions in English (as needed), but will always focus on progressing in Japanese language conversation. As always, we will try to have fun lessons so that you can relax and enjoy each lesson without pressure. We will discuss and adjust the class schedule as necessary to make a customized plan that fits your needs. Online Private Courses via Zoom: • Beginner/Starter Japanese lessons [textbooks: Genki, Adventures in Japanese, Japanese for Young People] • JLPT N5/N4 preparation lessons • Conversation lessons • Writing (Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji) lessons • Japanese Travel lessons • Japanese Anime/Manga lessons • School and classwork tutoring • Customized lessons Online Group Lesson courses via Zoom: - as per your request • Writing (Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji) group lessons • Youth entry-level group lessons for junior/high school students Let's get started learning Japanese. All of the courses include some Japanese cultural education as well; this assists you as a student, as the Japanese language cannot be fully mastered without an understanding of the culture. Beginner and starting students are welcome, as well as younger school-age children, 11 years and older, are welcome. (New group lesson is a good deal) 
Please ask me any questions you may have. One free 30-minute trial lesson and joint planning session are available per your request. You must take my free trial lesson, especially if you are a visual learner!!

Having lessons with Yoko has been one of my best decisions. I’ve been wanting to learn Japanese for years but quickly figured out I couldn’t do it alone or just with duolingo. She is very thorough with her lessons and all around an amazing teacher, would absolutely recommend getting lessons from her! ありがとうございます!

I have only recently started my lessons with Yoko Sensei, but they have quickly become the highlight of my week! The trial lesson was a great way to meet and discuss the best way to work towards my Japanese goals. I only wish I could afford to do lessons more often! どうもありがとうございます Yoko 先生!

Thank you very much for the great review. I'm impressed that you have memorized a lot of vocabularies and phrases already and are able to have basic conversations with me. I'm excited you speak Japanese proficiently in the near future. Regards, Yoko

I love the class so far very engaging and enriching. The homework really helps with the learning curve and the videos provides a lot of material I can practice! I’d recommend these lessons to everyone who wants to learn Japanese!

Yoko has been teaching our 11-year-old daughter for 6 months and we are very impressed with the results. Our daughter started learning Japanese on a language app but the experience was very repetitive and her progress was limited. Since starting classes with Yoko, our daughter’s knowledge and excitement for the Japanese language has really taken off. Yoko makes sure our daughter is always challenged with new material but never overwhelmed. Most importantly, since Yoko makes learning Japanese fun, our daughter looks forward to every class.

I would give 500 stars if I could. I was on a search for a tutor when my daughter requested Japanese lessons. Yoko’s immediate communicate was great and I can tell that she’s excited for those that want to become acquainted with Japanese. Her lessons are methodical and conducted with care and excitement. I highly, highly recommend. My daughter as enjoyed everyone lesson and I looked forward to her teaching us what we knows so that we can have small discussions with her at home.
