Native Japanese-speaking teachers

One of the best ways to learn Japanese is to immerse yourself in an environment where you can only use Japanese. If you want to learn proper Japanese pronunciation and talk like a native speaker, we would advise you to find a native Japanese-speaking tutor. However, please keep in mind that native-speaking tutors usually don’t speak your mother tongue.

Our native Japanese-speaking tutors are 25%-40% cheaper than private home tutors.

How do I choose my tutor?
Tutors with teaching experience
Experienced tutors are more likely to identify problems their students are having. They also know how to get along with students from different backgrounds and personalities. However, it may be worthwhile to try out tutors with special life experiences even if they currently don’t have past experience in teaching.
Tutors with certifications
Other than teaching experience, you can also choose tutors who are certified instructors. Usually a certified instructor will be proficient in the language he/she teaches, and knows exactly how to help students to maximize their learning.
Can lessons be customized for students?
We encourage students to discuss their learning needs and goals with their tutors before the first lesson. This is also a great opportunity for you to see if a tutor is suitable for you.

I have had 15 classes with Ms.Haruka for two months. She is always well-prepared, responsible and never late for the class. Most importantly, she caters to my need and teaches me patiently throughout the class. I always have great time talking to her in class! Thank you so much, Ms. Haruka. I deeply appreciate what you have done for me for the past two months :)

Online Japanese Classes FAQ
Q1. Why should I learn Japanese on AmazingTalker?

AmazingTalker’s one-on-one tutor is suitable for everyone that wants to learn Japanese, regardless if you are a child, beginner, student, adult or professional.

Our tutors can help you to learn in all aspects of the language - listening, writing, reading, speaking, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, or customized courses (e.g. business Japanese programs). If you would like to significantly improve your conversation abilities in Japanese, or if you’d like to stand out in your test or your work, then AmazingTalker’s Japanese tutor can definitely help you!
Q2. Who are our Japanese tutors?

AmazingTalker handpick only the best local and international Japanese tutors.

Each of our tutors have to go through a rigorous selection process before becoming an AT Japanese tutor, and their performance will also be constantly monitored by us. You will get the best learning experience from the tutor we have recommended for you!
Q3. How do I choose my Japanese tutor?

If you have a clear idea of your criteria for choosing a tutor - such as cost of lessons, nationality of the tutor, learning objectives, etc. - you can use the search function to quickly find a tutor to suit your needs, and select “trial lesson” for your first Japanese online lesson.

However, if you do not have the time to find a tutor, we can help you with a recommendation. In just a short 3 minutes, we can find a suitable tutor for you using our Auto-Match function!
Q4. Should I choose a Japanese tutor that is a native speaker?

One of the best way to learn Japanese is to immerse yourself in an environment where you can only use Japanese.

However, if you do not currently have a solid base of spelling and/or vocabulary, we would recommend a bilingual tutor, as you will achieve a better learning outcome in the limited time of one-on-one private tutoring.

If you have a good range of vocabulary but lack the opportunity to practice, then we would definitely recommend you to choose a native Japanese tutor.
Q5. Learn Japanese in the US - how to find a tutor near me?

We have local Japanese tutors from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, San Jose, Philadelphia as well as international tutors based in .
Q6. How much will my online Japanese class cost?

All tutoring fees are set by the Japanese tutors themselves, and not by AT. Most of our Japanese tutors charge USD$10-30 per hour.

We will match suitable Japanese tutors to the student’s cost needs. If the tutor’s fees are acceptable to you, we recommend that you can start with a “trial lesson”.
Q7. How do I pay for the my Japanese lessons?

We accept payment for the lessons by credit card. In some countries (e.g. Taiwan), we also accept local methods of payment, such as ATM payment or payment at convenient stores.
Q8. How many Japanese lessons should I purchase?

If you have a short term goal, we recommend you to purchase the number of lessons that is appropriate for your timeframe. If you need significant improvement to reach your goal, we recommend you to purchase adequate number of lessons, and get into the habit of regular weekly learning!
Q9. What if I have more questions?

Our FAQ page should have answers to most of your questions. You can find the FAQ page at the bottom of the AmazingTalker website. If you cannot find the answer to your question in the FAQ page, you can contact us here.
