About this pro

I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan, graduated from the literature department of Waseda University, 50 years young. I realize learning another language is tough and requires patience a lot from my experience in learning English. I have been teaching various kinds of student from 8 years old to over 60, including student with autism, dysgraphia and dyslexia, intellectual disability and memory impairment though I am not a specialist in that area. Every student different. I have my own curriculum and also make worksheets for each student’s interest too. I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. I try to listen and understand what my student is interested in and which direction she/he wants to go. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions. Call or text me anytime. 30 min sample lesson and consultation via the internet or phone, FaceTime is free. I am sure that lessons gonna be fun! Lessons are online only.

To feel that I can help people and an needed by people.

    Akira is an excellent teacher, he is patient and has a lot of materials for his students!

    Mr. Akira Komatsu caters to the level of your needs. Thirty five years ago I studied abroad in Japan and have not used Japanese all these years. Since COVID-Times, I figure it's time to keep myself occupied other than watching TV. I've had four lessons with Mr. Komatsu and each time, he is patient and caters to my broken Japanese. My focus is to converse and I can see myself slowly getting more comfortable. I started with a 30 minute lesson trial and now I'm continuing with 60 minute lessons. I highly recommend Mr. Kotmatsu if you want to learn Japanese, or simply like me, re-learn it after many year.

    I sought the help of a Japanese tutor for brushing up on some very basic conversation skills that I had acquired having grown up in a household with Japanese speaking parents. I realized after having gone to Japan with my husband that my conversation skills were very rusty. With Akira’s help, I have been able to relearn how to speak correctly, how to correct use the appropriate phrases in particular situations and increase my vocabulary.
