Hi! I’m Ryu from Japan and I am a native speaker of Japanese. I also speak English and Filipino fluently. I have lived in Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Hong Kong.
I was a flight attendant and I love traveling, learning different languages, and listening to music. I have been learning Spanish and I love listening to Spanish / Latin American music. Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, K-Pop? TWICE.
I love to travel because I want to experience the unknown. It’s amazing how it makes us appreciate the opportunity and experience of a lifetime, while learning and having fun at the same time.
Me as a Teacher
Attentive, fun, supportive. As a tutor, I want to be as flexible as possible to your learning needs. Someone that you can easily approach because you want to practice and be better. I have been learning languages my entire life so I know how it is to be a language learner. I am here for you when you want to learn something new, when you want to practice what you already know, and whenever you just feel like talking in a different language. Consistency is the key!
My lessons & teaching style
Flexible. It will be mostly my lessons will be mainly conversations. We can talk about anything under the sun. If you want to talk about a news article, your new favorite song lyrics, your favorite travel, what’s on your mind? No problem.
If needed, I can correct awkward sentences or wording, and suggest you a better way to say it or express it.
For beginners, we can start with the basics. A lot of basics and practices. The basics are very important and practice makes perfect. Please do not hesitate to mention if you have any request.

Another great lesson with Murakami Sensei. Recently, Sensei patiently helped me with my 発音 and it was through the correction that I discovered how the incorrect 発音 affected my orthograph. Glad to have my Japanese levelled up. ありがとうございます。

Great first lesson with Ryu-San! He is very knowledgeable and patient, knowing when to interrupt and correct me and when to allow me to develop my fluency. I was quite nervous in the beginning of our class but he made me feel at ease in the very first minutes. He has a genuine interest in teaching Japanese and of getting to know other people and other cultures, which probably is one of the greatest drives for him to achieve excellent in what he does. Thank you, Ryu-san for the class today 🙇🏻♂️🙇🏻♂️🙇🏻♂️

I had a fantastic conversation with Ryu today! We spoke about a variety of topics and he was great fun to talk to, patient, knowledgable and refreshingly honest about everything! He also corrected me the perfect amount so as to not disrupt the flow of the conversation and make sure I had plenty of opportunities to try and express myself. Thanks Ryu-San!
