Private Japanese Lessons - JPY 3800 per hour (Tax included) (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Skype)

Hi everyone!

My name is Masahiko Kitaya.

It is very nice to meet you :)

I'm a 38-year-old full time Japanese language teacher from Tokyo.

Are you planning to start from scratch? or are you trying to establish a study routine? or perhaps looking for a speaking partner to practice conversation with? or maybe planning to sit the next JLPT?

I have been providing customized lesson plans to learners from various age groups, levels, nationalities and professions with their individual study requirements for over 15 years.

I have taught private lessons, at language schools, at a primary school and at a secondary school in various locations, for example, Bournemouth, Cambridge and London in the UK for 5 years, in Galway in Ireland for 5 years and in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba prefectures in Japan for 5 years now.

Those opportunities have given me a lot of valuable experiences and through which I have learnt joy in teaching languages!

I now belong to a group of private Japanese language teachers called Asao. Together, we will be delighted to assist you with achieving your goals :)
(As well as working as a teacher, I look after their administrative work too.)

Level:
Even if you are an absolute beginner or already well versed with the language, please do not worry :) I have experience in teaching all levels of Japanese.

JLPT N5 - N1
Beginners, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate, Advanced and Proficiency Levels

For whom:
Such as students, families, expats, international assignees and corporate personnel are welcome.
This is also an opportunity for those who wish to supplement their current lessons.

Age Group:
My lessons are for both adults and children. The student age currently ranges from 2 to 80 years old and the average is between 28 and 35 years old

Location:
My lessons in person take place at our private classroom in Shin-Yurigaoka (within a 5 minutes walk from South Gate) and/or at our private classroom in Shinjuku (within a 2 minutes walk from JR Shinjuku South Gate).

My lessons also take place at your office, at your home or in a cafe at the locations of your choice in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba prefectures as well as on Skype.

Lessons availability:
I am a full time teacher with a very flexible schedule.
(08:00 - 22:00, Monday - Sunday including public holidays. Please check the availability first and book well in advance via email)

Lesson style:
My teaching style is empathetic and congenial but professional at the same time.
Lessons are relaxed and we go at your own pace and are conducted either in Japanese, English or mix.

Lesson structure:
Lessons will be structured according to your needs and wishes. A 60-minute lesson typically consists of a grammar lesson, speaking and listening practices and new vocabularies, idioms and expressions are introduced throughout the lesson.

Catch-up, Welcome general questions and requests and Check the homework
20 - 50 minutes

Lesson type:
I am specialized in teaching Japanese for professional purposes, for academic purposes, for everyday usage and for JLPT Preparation.

And, Asao Language School also reserves the right to refuse bookings.

FAQ:

"What types of study materials are used?"

In the initial lesson(s), we usually discuss in detail what approach to take in order to achieve your short term and long term study goals. Depending on your requests, we will suggest different lesson structures with a variety of textbooks. Alternatively, we can also take conversation-based approach. Please feel free to let us know your requests anytime.

"Can I receive a Student Visa by enrolling at your school?"

No, for further information, please contact the nearest immigration office in your neighborhood or embassy of Japan in your country.

"Do you offer any sort of trial lessons?"

No, we are very sorry we provide neither free/trial lessons nor discounts on our lesson fees. We are a group of professionally trained and experienced teachers and we are fully committed to assisting you from the first lesson.

"Can the lessons be bought on a one-time basis or in a block of lessons?"

We accept both one-off private lessons and block bookings. We may suggest that you book the first lesson individually first in order to meet the teacher, ask further questions, set goals and try our sample lesson. You are also more than welcome to try a different teacher(s) after the first lesson(s).

"Are the lessons always taught by the same teacher(s)?"

Yes, unless otherwise requested, the same teacher(s) will be teaching your lessons regularly. If the originally designated teacher(s) becomes unavailable temporarily we will inform you first and mutually decide upon alternative time and day to continue with the same teacher. If the teacher becomes unavailable permanently, we will suggest a new teacher(s) so that you can continue with the same time and day.

Teachers make a lesson progress report after each lesson and regularly update each other in relation to lesson content, teaching strategies and so on. Therefore, the transition of teachers should be processed smoothly and effectively.

"Are the lessons at Asao usually booked at the same day and time every week or am I able to schedule them for different days and times?"

Both ways are possible. If you prefer to book lessons at different times and days and even at locations, it will be no problem also. However, as our lesson schedule and the availability of our classrooms change on an on-going basis, please kindly let us know your preferred time(s) and date(s) for lessons well in advance, so that we can reschedule ourselves to accommodate your requests.

"I prefer to pay in cash. Can I pay directly to the teacher on the day?"

No, we are very sorry booking lessons with us always requires advance payment. Our teachers do not deal with payment and lesson scheduling themselves, because so that they can fully dedicate themselves to the lessons itself.

"I prefer bank wire transfer to cash" Is it possible for you to accept international bank transfer for payment?"

Yes, if you are already based in Japan and therefore would like to use the Japanese banks, please let us know, we will forward you our bank account details.

If you prefer to make payment before leaving your country or using your bank abroad, please kindly let us know, we will forward you our bank account details including SWIFT code.

"I'm not sure if I can send a bank wire transfer. What are my options?"

We accept advance payment in a form of bank wire transfer, Gennkinnkakitome, PayPal and cash in person.

Gennkinnkakitome is a type of service provided at every post office in Japan. Through this service, you can send cash to any address in Japan by registered mail. If you take the lesson fee and the specified home address (Please inquire) with you to a post office, and inquire for the service, they will assist you.

If you prefer PayPal payment, please kindly let us know. We will forward you our account details. Please kindly note that PayPal applies their unique currency exchange rate and handling fees in each transaction. For further information, please check their terms and conditions.

If you prefer cash payment, please kindly let us know well in advance, so that we can ask our accountant to call in in time to collect the payment at one of our classrooms requested. Please kindly note that for each cash payment, there is minimum payment requirement of 10000 yen.

"Can you provide receipts?"
Yes, please let us know to which name you would like us to make the receipt out. Please kindly note that, if you make a payment through a bank wire transfer or Gennkinnkakitome, they will automatically provide you with receipts. We can also provide invoices for our corporate clients.

"If I am running late for the class or cannot go to the class, who should I contact?"

After confirming the receipt of your payment and therefore your booking(s), we will forward you the contact detail of your teacher. However, please contact your teacher on that number only in emergency. For lesson scheduling, payment and other administrative work, please continue to directly contact our colleague, Masahiko Kitaya who looks after our administrative work.

Additional information:
A cultural / social activity is organized every month.

Please feel free to let me know your ideas, thoughts, questions and requests. I will make sure that I will always prioritize what you would like to learn and how you would like to learn in each lesson☺

Looking forward to hearing from you
