How do I choose a quality tutor?
Tutors with teaching experience
Experienced tutors are often quicker to identify problems their students are having in learning. Such tutors are also more likely to have worked with students with different backgrounds and personalities. However, it may still be worthwhile to try out tutors with less experience, especially if something about their background or experience catches your eye.
Tutors with certifications
Other than teaching experience, you can also choose tutors who are certified instructors. Aside from indicating proficiency in the language that the tutor teaches, such certifications are a sign that the tutor understands how to help students to maximize their learning.
Can lessons be customized for students?
Before students take their first lesson, we encourage them to discuss their learning needs and goals with their tutors. This helps give you a feel for what to expect, and is also a great opportunity for you to see if a tutor is suitable for you.

Online Japanese Classes FAQ
Q1. Why should I learn Japanese on AmazingTalker?

AmazingTalker’s one-on-one tutoring services are ideal for everyone who wants to learn Japanese efficiently and effectively. We have professional Japanese tutors for toddlers, small children, older kids, middle and high school students, and adults of all levels, including tutors for beginner, intermediate and advanced Japanese classes.

Whether your goal is to improve your Japanese conversation skills for fun, prepare for a test or speak more fluently at work, AmazingTalker's Japanese tutors are here to help.
Q2. Who are our Japanese tutors?

AmazingTalker handpicks only the best local and international Japanese tutors.

Each prospective instructor must undergo a rigorous selection process before becoming an AT Japanese tutor, after which their performance is constantly monitored. Try a class and start learning today.
Q3. How do I choose my Japanese tutor?

If you have a clear idea of your criteria for choosing a tutor - such as any specific learning objectives, target cost for tutoring, etc. - you can use the search function to quickly find a tutor who suits your needs, and select “book trial” to set up your first Japanese online lesson.

If you don't have time to find a tutor or aren't sure where to start, we can help with recommendations. Try using our tutor recommendation tool here, which will provide you with tutor matches according to your selected needs.
Q4. What's the right learning environment for me? Should I choose a Japanese tutor who is a native speaker?

One of the best ways to learn Japanese is to immerse yourself in an environment where you try to use only Japanese.

However, if you do not currently have a solid base in spelling and/or vocabulary, we recommend you choose a bilingual tutor who speaks your target language and your native language, as you will likely have a better learning experience during your one-on-one private tutoring.

If you have a good range of vocabulary but lack the opportunity to practice, then we recommend you choose a native Japanese tutor.
Q5. Learn Japanese in the US - how do I find a local or online tutor?

You're in the right place. We have local Japanese tutors serving New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose and most other areas nationwide, as well as numerous tutors based internationally.
Q6. How much will my online Japanese class cost?

All tutoring fees are set by the Japanese tutors themselves, and not by AT. Most of our Japanese tutors charge USD$10-30 per hour.

You can also get matched with suitable Japanese tutors who fit a specific budget. If the tutor’s fees work for you, you can buy a lesson package from them or start with a “trial lesson.”
Q7. How do I pay for my Japanese lessons?

You can pay with PayPal or credit card (American Express, Mastercard, or Visa). For certain international markets (e.g. Taiwan), we also accept local methods of payment, such as payment via ATM or convenience store.
Q8. How many Japanese lessons should I purchase?

If you have a short term goal, we recommend you purchase enough lessons that you can take classes consistently within your timeframe. If you need significant improvement to reach your goal, we recommend you an adequate number of lessons, and get into the habit of regular weekly learning! The more you put in, the more you get out of it!
Q9. What if I have more questions?

Our FAQs page should have answers to most of your questions. If you can't find the answer to your question on the FAQs page, you can contact us by clicking the red question mark (?) icon at the bottom right of your screen.
