Name: Erina Yamamoto
Location: Online only

Phone: 7579785068
Levels: From 0 knowledge, Beginner, Conversation, JLPT N4, JLPT N5

I've been teaching Japanese for 6 years to beginners and lower intermediate students (JLPT N5 to N4). I regularly tutor both teen and adult learners via online Skype lessons. I mainly use a text book called Genki in my lessons, which covers reading, writing, speaking and listening. All of my lessons are planned around the individual learner in order to give them the best start on their Japanese journey. Some learners retain information best through a conversational approach, mixed with learning the grammar basics. For others, it may be more fun and beneficial to learn some textbook Japanese with a side of examples from Japanese movies, anime and songs you like! I have experience teaching all kinds students and conditions such as dyslexia or autism are no barrier to learning Japanese! 


The first lesson is 50% off, do not hesitate to contact me.
