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 at all levels of the Japanese language. I've been teaching the Japanese language for two years (since 2019). I became a certified Japanese language teacher in March 2020. I have also been teaching English as a second language for five 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. I always try to have fun lessons so that you can relax and enjoy each lesson without pressure. We will always discuss and adjust the class schedule as necessary to make a customized plan that fits your needs. Courses: • Beginner/Starter Japanese lessons • Conversation lessons • Writing (Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji) lessons • Japanese Travel lessons • Japanese Anime/Manga lessons • School and class work tutoring • Customized lessons 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. 
Please ask me any questions if you may have. One free 30 minute trial lesson and joint planning session is available per your request.

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!

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.
