About Toshi M.

Welcome! 😃👋🏻 My name is Toshi M. I was born in Hiroshima City and raised in Tokyo, Japan. 🌟 One on One Lessons via Online ( Zoom) (Group Lessons available for more than 3 people.) Takelessons.com requires all group lesson students to sign up and purchase for their lessons separately. ⚠️Please read my entire page including the Cancellation, reschedule, and late policy carefully before purchasing lessons⚠️ 🌟 I teach basic through advanced Japanese. Conversation, Speaking, Writing, Reading, Hearing, Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji (symbols), Grammar, Vocabulary. All level of JLPT ( N5, N4, N3, N2, N1) AP Japanese Language and culture, Accent Reduction For the Japanese Language. Accent Neutralization course. Business Japanese, Japanese Word beautification, Gender differences in spoken Japanese, Proper and Casual conversations, Japanese Polite, Humble and honorific language, and Respectful verbs. Animatic expressions, Slangs, Internet Slangs, Shortened Words, English Made in Japan ( Wasei- eigo), Onomatopoeia, Rough Expressions, Verb Conjugation, Interjections, Exclamations, Speech style Japanese, Nowadays the Japanese Language, etc! ㊙️ I Teach Standard Japanese Neutral Accent (With Tokyo Accent) Japan’s every city has dialects. Tokyo is the capital of Japan. Most Television shows, newscasters, radio, etc Japan’s entertainment business-speak standard Tokyo accent. But Today, it is the form taught in schools, used in official communication. Yes, Standard Japanese is the primary language taught in schools and used in all official matters. There is a main distinction between the different Japanese dialects. They are divided into two major types: the Tokyo-type and the Kyoto or Osaka type. As you can probably guess, it is a division based on the northern and the southern dialects. Thus, there are numerous subdivisions shaped in each particular region. So, Japanese people came from southern Japan and northern Japan, their dialects are different. They don't understand their language with each other at all. Then, they have to speak standard Japanese to each other. So I think you should learn standard Japanese with the Tokyo accent not just because I am from Tokyo, it's because standard Japanese with a Tokyo accent is just like American English. ⭐️ For example, In the US, we have the entertainment industry in Hollywood, media, movies, television shows, or newscasters for NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, etc, are speaking North American English accents. My student who he/she is an actor/actress moved to Hollywood from New York, they need to neutralize accent. They don’t want people to kind of stereotype them or typecast them as New York characters for everything. They’re really focused on being neutral as possible. That way they can fit a bunch of different roles rather than the East Coast ones. Even their acting coach pointed it out and the coach said that, they really need to make it as subtle as possible. So that coach helped them and it’s something that they still work on all the time. It’s because, if only had a New York accent, if they don’t have a neutral standard American accent, it would be more difficult to get roles. Definitely, there’s a thing called typecasting, where you will kinda get stuck playing the same type of character for every TV show, movie, steaming network whatever it is that they book, they will kind of always be the same person and so they don’t think that’s as fun as being a cowboy one day and then being a southerner the next and then being a New Yorker and then being someone from Europe, they like to put on a bunch of different hats and play as many things as they can. ⭐️Also most international, multinational businesses, companies are from the US. American English is the prevailing language of the entertainment business and has more speakers, around 250 million people speak American English around the globe. Standard Japanese with the Tokyo accent has the same concept. I will teach you to real natural standard Japanese with the Tokyo accent. 📚 TEXTBOOK: I usually don't use textbooks, it's because enriching customizes class for all students. but all depend on the student's levels, goals, situations. If you want to learn with textbooks, we can do that, too. ( Cost $5-$30) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My tutoring policy is not just simply to teach the Japanese language as a Japanese. No, I always want to teach students more than the language. If you are interested in the Japanese traditions as well as the language and traditions, then that is a good start for learning. Fun, interest, and enjoyment are the best tools for learning with my tutoring. You will not only be able to speak Japanese, but you will grasp the traits of the Japanese language, traditions, history, culture, and, most importantly, the uniquely Japanese styles of courtesy and customs simultaneously! I teach practical Japanese so you can communicate and exchange proper responses with real Japanese with a sense of natural smooth conversation. My teaching method varies depending on the student's level. 🌟 Are you struggling? Perhaps you went to a Japanese language school, but when you saw Japanese anime or movies you still did not understand? Then you wondered WHY didn't'™t you! After all, you paid so much money for school! Here is the answer: most of the schools are not teaching true and complete Japanese! Yes, they are teaching proper Japanese very well. but it only works for some tests like a JLPT or speaking at work. Limited situations. 🌟 The SECRET is that Japanese people do not speak proper Japanese all the time. They usually speak casual, informal, broken, omitted, slang Japanese when they are talking with friends and family, and also there are gender differences in spoken Japanese! Japanese movies and anime cartoons, manga, are mostly stories of friends and family, NOT stories of formal work. That is why you need to know proper and polite Japanese and casual, informal, broken, omitted, slang Japanese. The Japanese culture and language have customs and orders which you must know and understand completely! I teach both of these structures at the same time. You need to know when and how to change and switch from proper verbs to casual, informal verbs, and then you will begin to understand the Japanese anime and movies, dramas. Then it will help you to enjoy your favorite entertainment! I am very strong in teaching proper Japanese, including reading and writing Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. If you are only interested in JLPT Training (any level) or AP Japanese Language and Culture, we can certainly work with that. ⭐️ However, I also teach business Japanese, mastering speech styles from polite, humble and honorific, super polite language, and respectful verbs. This is necessary for improving your personal and business relations! I am here to assist you! Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, I can tutor you in private lessons on your computer. I give a fun lesson and work to teach the precise and gentle true Japanese way in a friendly and open-minded one-on-one session or group lessons via Zoom. I believe you will find everything you need because I am focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction. I will do everything I can to meet your expectations, and with a variety of offerings to choose from, I am sure you will be happy working with me! 🌟 I also teach ORIGAMI (Japanese art of paper folding), Japanese Calligraphy, how to make SUSHI, and how to hold the Japanese Traditional Tea Ceremony, How to make healthy Japanese foods. I can give you information about J-POP. anime, drama, and traditional Japanese songs as well. We can have fun with those, too. If you would like to have a lesson once per week or twice per week, let's discuss the possibilities! I do not usually set up a specific 10-hour or 20-hour lesson plan, because it all depends on the student's level. You can let me know if you want to continue or not anytime! Let's go from there! If you have any questions about my tutoring, please feel free to contact me through TakeLessons.com. 🔴 Cancellation, reschedule and late, termination, other policy 🔴 ⚠️ Class cancellations and rescheduling must be done 24 hours in advance before the scheduled lesson. If you do not reach me within 24-hours. you will be charged for the lesson. (You must contact me 24 hours in advance or else you will be charged for the lesson. It does not matter what the reason is.) For example, your lesson schedule is on Tuesday at 2 pm, your cancelation or reschedule deadline is Monday at 1:59 pm. Respect for each other time. ⚠️ You must purchase your lessons 24 hours in advance. If I do not receive your payment within that time frame, TakeLessons will automatically remove you from my calendar. So, make sure every lesson is paid for 24 hours in advance! It's a reserve of my time. For example, your schedule is on Wednesday at 2 pm, your payment deadline is Tuesday at 1:59 pm. If you missed a payment more than three-time, your schedule is removed from my calendar automatically. No longer able to take my class. Please be responsible, reliable and respect for each other’s time. ⚠️ End a session. if a learner becomes inappropriate. However, foul language, threats, wearing an inappropriate outfit, and/or other behaviors that make me uncomfortable or disrespectful behaviors are not tolerated. I will let students know that I will end a session if the behavior continues to be inappropriate, and then follow through if necessary. Extreme behaviors, such as sexual acting out, bad attitude, should immediately result in ending a session. Report to the Takelessons incident in as much detail as possible, immediately after ending the session. You will be terminated without notice. ⚠️ If you cannot make your assigned lesson time for more than two weeks consecutively (for vacation, camp, or for any other reason) I will have to give your lesson time to another student. I work with many students from internationally and have a busy teaching schedule, which means that I cannot afford to hold a time slot with a student that cannot consistently show up for their lesson. If you would start lessons again, I ask that you please chose your preferred day and time from my availability, and then let me know when you want to start again. I will then put you in my schedule. ⚠️ If you are going to be late for your lesson, please contact me by text message before your scheduled class. If you are late 5 minutes or more to class (without prior notice), your lesson will be canceled, and you will be charged for the missed lesson. No refunds are given and you might be terminated from my calendar. 🚫🚫 Please note: if you signed up for lessons with me, you have agreed to my cancellation, reschedule, and termination, late policy.

My son has been working with Toshi for 3 years now, and he has developed a true love for the language and culture of Japan. Toshi is a great instructor and a wonderful human being. We couldn't be happier with this experience!

Toshi is a great tutor. No words can really express how awesome he is to work with. My son just smiles the whole time the lesson is going on and is excited to share with me after.

Toshi is the best teacher in the world and I recommend having him as a teacher, he is really funny and kind to hang out with and overall Japanese is really fun.
