I am a native Japanese speaker from Japan and a professional teacher.
I am a very patient and encouraging teacher, and I try to make every session relaxing and enjoyable. I am also a language learner, so I understand the challenges and frustrations of learning a foreign language. I like working one-on-one with students because each lesson is different and dynamic.
I believe that practice is the key to becoming an advanced speaker. You can practice with anyone, but a trained teacher is the best partner. Because I provide conversation practice with integrated grammar. I can also give you grammar and vocabulary corrections.
My lessons are always 100% adapted to your needs. No matter what your goal is or how difficult it might be to reach, I can work with you every step of the way until you pass your exam, speak like a native, understand the book, have the best possible application or anything else.
Finally, I have worked with many complete beginner students. If you are a beginner, I welcome you to take my lessons.
A Friendly Reminder
・If you plan to take Japanese lessons regularly, and you cannot find the suitable time on my timetable, please let me know your place or time zone and specific available time.
Example: Japan, UTC+9 / Monday 7AM-10AM, Friday 9 PM -10 PM.
I have received excellent feedback, for example，
“I feel that I have continued to learn with Haru consistently since the beginning. What's really great is that because he is responsive to my specific learning goals, I am able to ask him questions about what I learn on my own to progress forward with my studies. In this way, our sessions feel more structured. This, I feel, is good in terms of our compatibility, and the ability to work together is a much bigger component to success for me personally. I also appreciate that he is not very intrusive regarding my private life. Thanks, Haru!”
“A lesson with Haru-san is like a visit in a Japanese friend's home. He is so easygoing that I forget my fear about making mistakes and find myself conversing enthusiastically.”
