I am a Japanese trainer with extensive knowledge in teaching Japanese as a second/third language. I work closely with my students to identify their goals and objectives and develop tailored lessons for a more effective learning experience. I believe that you will absorb more effectively when you enjoy learning and you are encouraged to learn! I teach basic through advanced Japanese. • Speaking, listening, reading, writing, Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji • Conversational Japanese: casual/polite/formal • Real-life applications to Japanese life and culture • Nuance in Japanese • Japanese way of thinking, trends, custom, traditional and contemporary Japanese culture
About Wakana Y.

Hello! My name is Wakana. I am an energetic yet patient native Japanese teacher with many years of experience teaching Japanese. My motto is to provide a learning experience that is enjoyable and encourages students to learn more. I understand how frustrating it can be to learn a language as a second or third language. I also believe that tailoring a lesson to an individual student's diverse interests, needs, and goals is essential because we all have a different learning style. I respect each student’s learning style and create a lesson plan accordingly. I am a firm believer in the importance of repetition in mastering a language and making learning steps enjoyable. Help and knowledge will be provided in all areas. Please ask me any questions** that you have/have had over the years. (**related to Japanese such as grammar, formality, nuance in the language as well as Japanese culture, current trends, or anything!) Please contact me for more information or if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to hearing from you! Doumo arigatougozaimasu. どうもありがとうございます。

Wakana sensei is extremely knowledgeable and she can explain the reasoning behind the concepts and the nuances of Japanese in a way I can relate to and easily understand. She answers any questions I have (grammar, random cultural questions etc..), which I really appreciate because I usually can't find these answers anywhere. She is incredibly patient, accommodating, and fun. Wakana sensei itsumo arigatougozaimasu!

I had a great session with Wakana and am excited to do more. She was very interested in why I wanted to learn Japanese and is tailoring the lessons to help me get the most out of it. She made it very interesting and fun. Recommend 10/10!

I've seen Wakana several times over the summer in preparation for a fall class, and I'm confidant that she is more than capable of helping me through the two years of the language need for graduation. She has a strong grasp of both English and, from what I can tell, Japanese along with great interpersonal skills. I would gladly recommend Wakana to friends and family.
