Konnichiwa :) Would you like to become fluent in Japanese? I am Alexa, a Japanese tutor and native speaker from Osaka – I was born, raised, and educated in Japan until I was 20 – and I provide a series of fun, relaxed and entertaining lessons tailored specially for you! I have over eight years’ teaching experience in the UK, and I also taught in Japan, France, and the USA. Check out some of my feedback below.

My lessons are structured and prepared around your needs, often building on previous experience and then pushing forwards helping you progress quickly, build confidence and increase proficiency. I also focus my lessons to your specific interests or requirements, whether it is learning Japanese for business, improving your conversation skills, or preparing for an exam (GCSEs, A-levels, the JLPT levels N5 to N1).

I am passionate and dedicated to my students, making sure every lesson is extremely enjoyable, using bespoke and topical content that includes a variety of media types such as videos, recordings and articles. Whatever your level, with my strong focus on speaking and listening, you will quickly gain the confidence to speak freely and easily!

I am available to teach 7 days a week from 8am to 10pm, either at my home in the York city centre or online using Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts. The first lesson is always free and includes a short questionnaire, within which we identify your current level, establish your aspirations, and setup a bespoke teaching structure specifically for you and your schedule.

My rates start at £25 pounds an hour for one person, plus an extra £5 an hour for every additional person.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu!

Amy -- ‘Alexa guided me in preparation for the JLPT N3 exam which I successfully passed in July 2013. Unlike any other Japanese class, we spoke 100% Japanese from the moment I stepped into the room, which really helped me gain the confidence I needed to pass the exam!’

Michael -- ‘Alexa helped my girlfriend and I learn basic conversational Japanese before going to Tokyo for our dream holiday. Not only did she successfully teach us how to get by in Japan during our stay, we fell in love with the language so much that we have decided to continue learning upon our return.’

Lucas -- ‘I’ve been learning Japanese with Alexa for over 3 years now. I started from scratch and now I can hold conversations with my Japanese friends in Japanese!’

Yue -- ‘I can read manga in Japanese! Also, I understand the majority of the content when I watch anime.’

Rich -- ‘I am currently learning Japanese to be able to communicate with my in-laws who speak little English. They are so impressed with my progress every time I speak to them – it’s all thanks to Alexa’s excellent teaching!’
