Private Lessons

1-on-1 lessons are a great way to enhance your Japanese skills. Regardless of if you’re already enrolled in one of my Japanese courses, I would love to work directly with you to create a personalized Japanese learning experience.

Types Private Lessons Available

I offer 4 options for 1-on-1 Skype lessons:

  1. Regular language lessons (Newbie or Beginner) – I will teach you Japanese and personalize the lessons just for you.
  2. Writing critique sessions – You will show my your current writing skills and I will assess them, explain what you may be doing wrong, and make suggestions for improvements.
  3. Pronunciation sessions (or speech fluidity counseling) – Japanese words can be tricky to pronounce, especially when you are a native English speaker. I will work with you to improve your foundation in pronouncing Japanese words. If you’re at an intermediate level, I can work with you to improve your speech fluidity and increase the pace that you can speak.
  4. Conversation lessons – We will work together to have basic to intermediate discussions, about a variety of topics, in Japanese. I will help you to organize your thoughts, learn how to go about translating them, then saying them out loud.
