« Perfect! I love that Akemi-sensei is so encouraging and on point. Every minute of class is well spent and I find the time goes so fast because we cover a lot of solid material. She is very well prepared and tailors her lesson plans according to where each student is at. I have been working with her and I look forward to more each time I am and finish class. Japanese is not an easy language to learn but I feel positive that as long as I work hard on my end and also follow Akemi-sensei's teachings, I should be able to reach my language goals over time. Thank you Akemi-sensei for being my guide on this journey :) »

If you want to have the Best Japanese Teacher, this is Akemi

Methodology

My teaching method incorporates both discussion and demonstration methods that enable the student learning process. I prepare the subject matter according to each student and their capabilities assessing their level of skill throughout. I like to initiate the conversation and why it must be this way in order to allow the person learning to comprehend the meaning of the translation. This allows for me to integrate a hybrid blended style that conforms to the student's interests and needs. Each personality has its own challenges and my ability to adapt is a skill well learned.

Background

My background is Radio and TV field in Tokyo Japan as Announcer. I have been Teaching Japanese language and Culture for English speaking students more than 28 years in the world. Students are 2.5 years old to adults students. I had taught Japanese languages and cultures more than 200 students in the world.

Excellent! Akemi Sensei is a really great tutor. I’m never bored with my lessons. I’m learning a lot with her being my tutor. Each lesson is fun I love it a lot so far.

Akemi's response

She is such a wonderful student. She has dreamt about living in Japan since she was 11 years old. And now she just started to take action in learning Japanese from me.
I would love to help her dream come true for living Japan in her future.
I am so excited to teach her and help her for a future life in Japan.
I am her permanent Japanese language teacher.

Perfect! Akemi is a great teacher! She provides the perfect material to teach you what you need to know while having fun doing it! I needed to learn business Japanese and Akemi's way of teaching made it so much easier to learn. She has a great response rate and is always willing to answer any questions out of class. I highly recommend her lessons.

Akemi's response

I am so happy to know her and I'm having fun teaching Japanese.
She is such a hard worker for living, studying and learning the Japanese language.
Her passion for learning Japanese is such a wonderful power.
She is the BEST student for me.

Akemi is a fantastic teacher. She tailors her teaching style to your learning style to make the learning easier and more productive. She teaches not only the language but the customs and etiquette which is often overlooked with most teaching styles. Domo arigato gozaimas, Akemi sensei.

Akemi was Japanese tutor as I prepared for the Monbukagakusho scholarship exams. I had tried other tutors but Akemi had by far the most structured and professional approach to teaching me the language. She is from Nikko, which is just north of Tokyo, so for those worried if she will have a non-standard dialect, rest assured that this is not the case. I would definitely recommend her services for anyone looking learn Japanese from scratch or bring themselves to a more advanced level.

Our business hired Akemi for translation services and we could not have chosen a better person for it. She also provided language instruction for our employees who wanted to learn basics of Japanese language and business manners. She was able to create her own curriculum and instruction materials that proved to be a very valuable item for our company. She can teach anyone. She is friendly, kind, and very impressive in her delivery of coaching. You cannot go wrong.

I met Akemi Sensei in Stockton and have been taking Japanese lessons from her for over 5 years! Even after I moved to the Bay Area, she continued to tutor me over skype. She has a Japanese broadcasting background, which is perfect for students who want to practice correct intonation and professional communication. She understands English very well and can translate fluently. Akemi Sensei is professional, patient, intelligent, gracious, and a gifted teacher. As a fourth generation Japanese American, I came in not knowing anything about the Japanese language and very little about the culture. But after her tutoring, I am able to speak and understand Japanese! I feel reconnected to my culture and proud of my background. I would highly recommend Akemi Sensei to anyone learning Japanese for the first time casually or for extra tutoring to supplement classes, for a conversational partner, and to prepare for a trip to Japan! Akemi Sensei is highly gifted as a Japanese teacher.
