In-person language lessons with a tutor can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private Japanese tutor in Vancouver, online learning may be a good option for you. To take lessons with a Japanese tutor in your area, you may have to pay more to cover their travel costs or travel to their home, and the average cost of private Japanese lessons in Vancouver is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top tutors from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a tutor are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your tutor's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your tutor and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Give it a try with a free trial session and see for yourself!
You can watch Japanese tutor intro videos, check their availability, and read reviews from their students on their profiles. You'll also see which learning needs, ages, and levels the tutor is comfortable with.
Are you new to LanguaTalk? When you sign up, you'll get a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson. Use this to meet your chosen tutor and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for a Japanese tutor in Vancouver instead. (Please note: not all tutors offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)
Hello! My name is Nami. I am a Japanese native speaker.
I am looking forward to seeing you!See Reviews From Students
I have a high passion for learning languages!
Myself, I learn and speak more than 6 languages besides my native language.
I also work as a designer and an artist.
Class types (55min/30min):
I have experience teaching at a private school, and I’ve been teaching the Japanese language & culture to foreigners for more than 7 years.
In 2021, I earned a TESOL certification, and in 2022 I earned the certificate "Teaching Japanese as a foreign language".
Although, I still continue to study Japanese language education.
I believe that it’s most important to HAVE FUN to keep your motivation of learning.
I have about 800 lessons of experience teaching online with students in various countries as Japanese tutor. I am certified by The World Japanese Language Centre for the 420 hour Advanced Japanese Teacher Training Course. Because of my experience and good knowledge of Japanese business environment, I know how to communicate with Japanese people in the business scene and how to respond. I also teach children from very young age. I customize lessons depending on the student and their aim, goals and personality etc. I was born in Japan and raised in Tokyo. I experienced living in Kyushuu, and Okayama, too, as my father moved there to work. Every time I made friends, I had to say ''Kon-nichiwa'' and ''Sayoonara''. A bit sad but it was great to see new friends. I live in the UK now. As I mentioned, I am teaching Japanese after my work experience of Japanese companies. It has been a great experience working there with great people. This helps a lot to teach my students who are thinking to live in Japan and work for Japanese companies.See Reviews From Students

I know how difficult it is to learn foreign languages because I spent tons of time acquiring English and Spanish.
I believe, from my experiences, that learning foreign languages is like a "long journey".
It's impossible to arrive at the destination the next day but we know we can arrive there someday unless we stop moving forward💪
Let's pleased with our small progress than big progress🙌
I look forward to joining your journey!See Reviews From Students
Hello everyone. I’m Yoko. Nice to meet you.
I was born, raised and educated in Tokyo. I moved to Brazil in 2001 and now live in the UK.
I speak Japanese, Portuguese and English.
I know how hard it is to learn foreign languages, but it’s also fantastic to be able to communicate with people in the world.
I tailor my classes for all levels (your interests, needs, and also goals).
- Start from zero? That's great, we can have a lot of fun together to do speaking, grammar and writing hiragana and Katakana. I always encourage my students to learn Hiragana and Katakana at least. I believe being able to read Japanese helps your understanding and importantly, motivates you more.
- Looking for a conversation partner? Yes, I can do that. We can talk about anything you want, e.g., celebrity gossip, news about what's happening in the world.
- Looking for someone who corrects your writing? Yes, please count on me. Please send me your writing at least 1 day before the class. We’ll review it together in class.
I can give you accurate instructions, because I myself have been learning English and Portuguese for a long time, as I understand common mistakes we usually make.
Material: ‘GENKI’’MARUGOTO’ or others (PPT, videos, music etc)
Learn: speaking, listening and writing (Hiragana and Katakana)
Free conversation, discussion
Learn: Speak correctly
Pls send me your writing at least 1 day before the class. We’ll review it together in class.
*All the classes are available both in English and Portuguese.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Ola, sou Yoko. Prazer em conhecer.
Nasci e cresci em Toquio e me mudei ao Brasil em 2001 e agora moro no UK.
Falo japones, portugues e ingles.
Dou aula de japones para todos os niveis:
-Comece do zero? Eh otimo, podemos nos divertir muito de falar, gramatica e escrever hiragana e katakana. Eu insentivar meus alunos a aprenderem pelo menos Hiragana e Katakana. Ser capaz de ler japones ajuda a sua compreensão e motivacao.
-Procurando aula de conversa? Sim, conte comigo. Podemos falar qualquer assuntos que voce quiser, pode ser fofocas de celebridades, noticias sobre o que esta acontecendo no mundo.
-Procurando alguem corrija sua redacao? Sim, conte comigo. Me manda sua redacao pelo menos 1 dia antes da aula. Vamos revisa-la juntos na aula.

Hello there! I'm Norah. I am a Certified tutor of The 420-hour Advanced Japanese Teacher Training Course.
I was born and raised in Saitama and was working in Tokyo for 20 years. I speak "Tokyo-standard accent Japanese" and can teach Keigo (A special polite speech style) for business.
I have been teaching Japanese since 2018. When I was living in Florida, I was volunteering to help students who studied Japanese at a University, and that experience brought me to become an online Japanese tutor.
I want you to relax and enjoy our lesson, I will ask you how you want to study Japanese. Some students want to study grammar accurately, some want to have conversations, some want to read books with me, and some students want to write a diary in Japanese! I can be flexible according to what you want. If you are not sure how to study Japanese, I will suggest the best way for you.
[Accent, Intonation of Japanese]
Pronunciation between English and Japanese is very different! I will help your accent and pronunciation to sound more natural in Japanese.
[My favorite materials]
Of course, you can use your favorite textbooks but I prefer to use these. Also, I use many different types of books for fun including comics, and news websites to gain vocabulary.
[Message to all Japanese-language learners]
I love teaching, listening to my students, and speaking with people from different countries. A small question may help your comprehension of the Japanese language. Don't hesitate to ask me. I would love to support you! Looking forward to seeing you. Book a trial lesson now! :)
Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute lessons for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute lessons only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.
On LanguaTalk, you can find highly qualified tutors who offer personalized 1-on-1 Japanese lessons based on your goals and learning style. Here's how it works:
1 - Search for a tutor who meets your needs by reviewing videos, ratings, prices, and availability.

Your tutor will create a customized lesson plan based on your goals, learning style, and current level. During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to speak, listen, and interact with your tutor in real-time.

The advantage of taking lessons online is that you can learn at any time and from any location. When you select a tutor, check their calendar to ensure that they have available slots that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand from other students.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial lesson. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be reduced to 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at a minimal cost.
Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the tutor is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any lessons you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in Japanese as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial lesson, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can schedule a trial lesson with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
If you prefer not to learn online with tutor, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you.

You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may offer local lessons, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many tutors do not teach Japanese in Vancouver as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that it will be online unless the tutor specifically states that they offer in-person lessons in Vancouver.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Japanese online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
There are several options for learning Japanese in Vancouver, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group lessons with Japanese tutors in Vancouver if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one lessons with a private tutor, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good tutor. Learning online may make private tutors a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the tutor, but are generally cheaper than in-person lessons in Vancouver.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private Japanese lessons in Vancouver is between $25-$35 per hour. Online tutors do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
