Private Japanese lessons

Available in Person (Tokyo Area) or Online 

Does this sound like you?

・“ I want to learn Japanese, but I don’t know how to study”

・“Standard Japanese lessons don’t meet my needs”

・“I want to learn Japanese that is going to help me in everyday life”

・“It’s too difficult to go to a class at the same time every week. I’m too busy”

There’s no need to let these issues stop you from learning Japanese!!

With Private Lessons, you can take lessons at a time and place that is convenient for you.
Classes can be 1:1 or in a group.

I work with my students to develop a custom lesson plan that fits their needs:
・JLPT Prep
・Business Japanese
・Conversation courses
・Or we can create something completely unique to what you want to learn.

I have taught Japanese to students of all levels from beginner to advanced in 8 years, different nationalities, and different occupations (eg diplomats, corporate executives, programmers, system engineers, office workers, housewives, etc.) in individual lessons and group lessons.

Learning Japanese should be a great experience for everyone. No matter your level or your motivation, I can help.

The location of the lesson is your choice (e.g. office, home, café, online) and the first consultation is free!

You can sign up for lessons via this website. Sign up today!

I looking of to seeing you!

Ms. Dorra Turki (Tunisia)

Mr. Azuma is very serious, organized and has the ability to make the lessons pleasant for his students. He always arrives early, and don’t leave the class until I fully understand the lesson. This is how serious and implied he is with his student progress. He tested my abilities and made customized courses adapted to my level. In a very short time, my Japanese really improved.

In only a month I was already able to talk with native speakers about difficult subjects.

I had to write monthly reports in Japanese for my company, so he read them, corrected them while explaining to me the grammatical issues and teaching me a new vocabulary that is important to write my business reports. That way I was able to learn things that I really needed for my work.

His lessons are very easy to understand, and his patience is amazing. He teaches me in a way I could improve my every day’s Japanese and my business Japanese at the same time, which is amazing regarding the fact that we had only two hours per week.

My boss is very happy with my progress, as my reports got better and my business Japanese improved too. My company decided to hire Mr. Azuma again for his teaching skills.

Mr. Unique Song (China)

I started my Japanese studying with Azuma-san with very little knowledge, and after about three months of private lessons I was able to hold simple conversations in Japanese, talking about daily lives and other topics learned in class.  My friends as well as colleagues were quite impressed with the progress and I was also happy with the progress made.

Azuma-san was always well prepared before the lesson, and during lesson. He teaches via hundreds of self made PPTs to illustrate vocabulary, grammar and various examples, as well as self summarized PPT and examples to explain difficult grammar points such as the difference between “は” and “が”.  In my 2 hours lesson each time, we usually spend about 30 to 45 minutes for free talk, and the rest for grammar and text book.  In fact I started with two private tutors and ended up with Azuma-san alone.  He was always on time, polite, and flexible in terms of arrangements.  I am very satisfied with Azuma-san’s professionalism.
