Mastering Japanese: Comprehensive Language and Cultural Tutoring!

Tutor Information


Hello! I'm Tetsuo, a dedicated and passionate Japanese language educator with over a decade of teaching experience. As the co-founder and chief instructor at Brooklyn's leading Japanese language school, I have had the distinct pleasure of guiding a diverse array of students - from middle schoolers to mature learners - on their journey towards mastering the Japanese language. I firmly believe that true proficiency in a language extends beyond grammar and vocabulary. With this principle in mind, I ensure my tutoring sessions are not only focused on language instruction, but also provide an immersive exploration of Japanese culture, business etiquette, and unique societal perspectives. This comprehensive approach guarantees a deeper, more authentic understanding of the language and its people. My expertise spans a wide range of subject areas including but not limited to: - General conversational Japanese - Business Japanese, including conversation, manners, and writing - Hands-on Japanese class for Art, Music, and Acting - Intensive travel-oriented Japanese - Accent reduction techniques - Holistic language skills: reading, listening, writing, and grammar - Special-interest topics: history, politics, essays, Haiku, Tanka, Modern Poems, Art and culture, J-Pop etc. - Classic and contemporary Japanese literature - JLPT-focused preparation - Grammar, Essay and business writing Whether you have specific textbooks or resources, or you're starting from scratch, I'm well-equipped to design a customized curriculum that perfectly aligns with your level of proficiency and learning goals. My mission as a tutor is to go beyond the textbook, enabling you to understand and converse in real-world Japanese. Regardless of your chosen field or purpose for learning Japanese, I am here to guide you towards linguistic and cultural fluency. I'm just a message away and am excited to be a part of your Japanese language journey. Let's embark on this exciting adventure together!
