Private Japanese Lessons - JPY 3800 per hour (Tax included) (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Skype)

Hi everyone!

My name is Masahiko Kitaya.

I'm a 37 year old full time native Japanese language teacher originally from Tokyo.

I have over 15 years of experience in teaching Japanese as a Second / Foreign Language both abroad and in Japan.

I have been providing customized lessons to learners of various levels, age groups, nationalities and professions with their individual study goals. I have taught lessons privately, at language schools, at a primary school and at a secondary school in various locations, e.g. Bournemouth, Cambridge and London in the UK for 5 years, in Galway in the Republic of Ireland for 5 years and in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba prefectures in Japan as well as on Skype for 5 years.

Teaching at these educational institutions has given me a lot of valuable experience as well as joy in being part of such an important job. I am looking forward to assisting you with achieving your goals :)

Even if you are an absolute beginner or already well versed with the language, please do not worry. I have experience in teaching all levels of Japanese.

JLPT N5 - N1
Beginners, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate, Advanced and Proficiency Levels

For whom:
Such as students, families, expats, international assignees and corporate personnel are welcome.
This is also an opportunity for those who wish to supplement their current lessons.

Age Group:
My lessons are for both adults and children. The student age currently ranges from 2 to 80 years old and the average is between 28 and 35 years old

My lessons take place at our private classroom in Shin-Yurigaoka (within a 5 minutes walk from South Gate) and/or at our private classroom in Shinjuku (within a 2 minutes walk from JR Shinjuku South Gate).

My lessons also take place at your office, at your home or in a cafe at the locations of your choice in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba prefectures as well as on Skype.

Lessons availability:
I am a full time teacher with a very flexible schedule.
(08:00 - 22:00, Monday -- Sunday including public holidays. Please check the availability first and book well in advance via email)

Lesson style:
My teaching style is empathetic and congenial but professional at the same time.
Lessons are relaxed and we go at your own pace and are conducted either in Japanese, English or mix.

Lesson structure:
Lessons will be structured according to your needs and wishes. A 60-minute lesson typically consists of a grammar lesson, speaking and listening practices and new vocabularies, idioms and expressions are introduced throughout the lesson.

A sample 60-minute lesson structure:
0 - 20 minutes
Catch-up, Welcome general questions and requests and Check the homework
20 - 50 minutes
Revision and New materials
50 - 60 minutes
Welcome questions about the New materials

Lesson type:
I am specialized in teaching Japanese for professional purposes, for academic purposes, for everyday usage and for JLPT Preparation.
During the initial lesson, we also discuss what approach to take in order to achieve your long-term and short-term goals. I use textbooks, structured and / or free conversation, drills and so on. Please feel free to let me know your ideas which you think would help you the most to become more fluent and literate in Japanese.
