Private Japanese Lessons at Tokyo or Yokohama

Private Japanese lessons for learners from all levels. Our flexible lessons are matched to students’ Japanese study experience, schedule and needs.

Course content, pace and lesson schedule can be adjusted. We will design your individual lesson program that will be tailored from time to time depending on progress and student's requests.

Study Japanese based on your Japanese level and goal

Students have different Japanese skills and learning targets that they might want to address personally. Some want to use Japanese for work and communicate fluently with business clients. Some students want to take the JLPT test or EJU. Some are preparing for their job search. Which one are you?

At Coto, we believe you should focus on learning Japanese in a way that is most beneficial to you. That is why we provide special custom-fit private Japanese lessons.

We take heavy consideration to your requests, ability and personal interests. From here, we suggest the best lesson plan and prioritize improving your weak points privately.

We accept all learners, from beginner to advanced, businessmen to university students.

Progress at your own pace, whenever you want

Because Japanese group lesson progresses collectively, some students may feel class goes too fast or lags behind. Group courses also limit the students' opportunity to get guidance and receive feedback. This is when it is best to opt for a one-on-one lesson.

In our private Japanese course, you set your own pace. Whether you want to challenge yourself by studying Japanese intensively or take it slow, our teachers will provide the flexibility for you to decide.

Let us know the time and schedule that doesn’t interfere with your work and private activities. Day or nighttime classes, we will accommodate your preference and design the best learning curriculum.

Receive support and personalized advice at private lessons

Our private Japanese lessons allow our teachers to focus only on students’ interests and strictly monitor their progress. You will have all the freedom to ask questions and request Japanese language consultations. Because it is a one-on-one lesson, you don’t have to worry about interrupting the lesson flow, too.

Our Japanese instructors will help target your weak points, give you personalized advice and redirect the lesson accordingly. From reviewing class materials to encouraging you, our lessons can be adjusted upon students’ requests.

We recommend private Japanese lessons for...

• Students who have specialized needs to learn Japanese. This includes students who want to communicate professionally in the work environment, learn Japanese business etiquette, prepare EJU or start job hunting.

• Students who prefer to study alone with a Japanese teacher without any distractions.

• Students who want to learn things they are interested in and things they can apply to their careers.

• Students who want to address their concerns privately. Some students might feel unconfident if they study in a small group. Our private lessons put this worry to the back of their mind.

• Students who feel in-person one-on-one class is the most effective way to learn Japanese. Our Japanese schools in Yokohama and Tokyo are located in the center points of the city for easy access.
