I have lived 5 years in California when I was young, and the past 12 years in the UK, so explaining difficult grammar/sentences using slang and idioms in English is my strong suit. I used to be a medical student for 4 years in the UK, so if you would like any medical Japanese help, I'd be able to accommodate!
I have been a tutor since 2019, with students from all over the world!
I am a huge fan of anime and manga, so otakus are very welcome 😊
We will first figure out what your learning style is, whether it be visual, aural, kinetic, etc. Then, we will construct an efficient custom learning plan that maximises your strengths, and supplement your weak areas.
I have access to a variety of textbooks, and will be able to accommodate for a very wide range of proficiency level.
I will incorporate the fundamentals of language, and will focus on accuracy, but in the context of conversational use. You will be able to have confidence in your pronunciation, and the accuracy of the intonation.
I will be setting kanji and vocab homework, as they are crucial in progressing through the language.

Noz's lessons are enjoyable and very informative, in a few months of taking lessons he has greatly improved my Japanese and helped me get through the Japanese 101 course at UH Manoa. I failed the course the first time due to not knowing what to study at the time and what I should focus on and tried to do too many things at once. Noz helped create a sensible route through my course and gave me concepts and light homework to work on which helped greatly in my actual course homework and tests. Would highly recommend taking a few lessons depending on how much you are struggling, at any level!

I have only been with Noz for two lessons but I feel like I have already learned so much from the short time I have been with him and I am excited to learn more from him in the future

T.L.D.R. Get lessons with Nozomu. I've been wanting to give Japanese a shot for a good long while now, I've been getting by on sites like Anki, and Doulingo for a couple years now. When we had began the lesson, he had asked the right questions to pin point exactly where you are in Japanese, and how to build your vocabulary. Orchestrating it in a way that he knows would make sense, and if it doesn't make any sense to you; he'd explain it in a different context or give you some more examples of whatever it is you may be tackling at that given moment. Every time we may get sidetracked or if you're digging into a subject a little deeper, Nozomu is always able to loop what we're talking about back to his original point. He's got one of the most friendliest of personalities, and truly is one of the best teachers/professors I've ever had.
