Hi my name is Yuya
I live in Oita Prefecture, famous for its hot springs
I'm a qualified Japanese teacher. I've been teaching online for 3years
My hobbies are going to hot springs and playing African drums.
Now I study English and Spanish
Me as a Teacher
I've been teaching Japanese online for 3 years and over 2000 hours of lessons
I am studying English and Spanish, so I really understand how difficult it is to learn new languages. I am very patient, friendly and I love to talk with new people
I would like you to enjoy studying and practicing Japanese!
My lessons & teaching style
Give me 30 minutes or an hour of your time. There aren’t many opportunities to talk with Japanese people abroad, so I will provide a laid-back atmosphere and give you many opportunities to practice Japanese.
The time we use practicing together will give you the pleasure of conversation and the motivation to study.
Not only will you practice with me once a week but also use the remaining six days to study on your own in your own way.
I can also teach you grammar if you have books like Minna no nihongo or the Genki series.
If you are nervous when you speak, come to my class and I’ll help you build your confidence and see your Japanese improve.

This is my second review as of now. I have learned so much from Yuya that I can’t believe how much I have grown in my Japanese speaking skills. Being able to speak in the language I am learning has helped tremendously in my journey. Yuya is great at leading the conversation while helping correct mistakes along the way. Never once have I been scared to try new grammar or vocabulary when talking with Yuya. Every lesson I learn something new and gain practice on what I learned before. I can’t wait to meet with him again. Thank you Yuya!

I recommend lessons from Yuya-sensei, if you want someone who can support your own needs and goals for studying Japanese. 😁
I really enjoy Yuya-sensei’s style of communication. 🥑 And I am grateful for his flexibility to accommodate what I need to ask a question about or wish to talk about each lesson. I feel more confident to express myself the more we talk—!!
Today, Yuya-sensei used a ⭕️⭕️ button! Very fun, as I use the same things in my classroom with my students. 😆

Yuya has all the qualities of a great teacher. He is patient, easy-going and supportive and attuned to my level immediately - offering a challenge at times but helping me to feel comfortable throughout. I would highly recommend his style of teaching and conversing to anyone who is feeling nervous about speaking Japanese. With Yuya you'll be in very good hands!

I always enjoy my lessons with Yuya. He is kind, patient, and a joy to talk with. He strikes a great balance between making me work outside my comfort zone and providing assistance as required.
He is always supportive and encouraging, and his lessons have made a big difference to my confidence and spoken ability.

As always, Yuya-san’s lesson was very fun, even while he is helping me get through a conceptually difficult novel! I always look forward to our class and am grateful for all the assistance and explanations that are getting me one page closer to my goal :)
