Looking to make a real difference to your Japanese? Tailored Lessons bring a dedicated focus to you and your studies, spurring you on to achieve your learning goals and revitalise your approach to language learning.
Up until now, you may have learnt as part of a class or through self-study. By taking on a tutor, you are adding an extra level of commitment to your language studies.

Tailored Lessons are designed around you, your needs and learning aims. There is no predetermined syllabus, and we can take things as speedily or slowly as you feel comfortable with.
For many students, lessons will be structured around a textbook (e.g. Genki) or materials designed for those sitting the JLPT. However, ticking off a list of vocab or grammar items is never our true aim, and if you would rather totally avoid textbooks, this is also possible.

We will use Japanese in our lessons together from day one, and will always aim to link the language being covered in class with scenarios relevant to your life and interests.
For beginners or elementary learners, common topics include:
