Top Japanese Tutor related questions

In most cases, your tutor can require textbooks. Some tutors can lend or buy the books, then either bring them when they visit or send them via courier. Note that this can cost extra. If your Japanese lessons are online, you must have a laptop or desktop computer with a webcam, updated teleconferencing apps and a fast internet connection. A quiet area is also necessary so that you can take your lessons without distractions. 

The service can take a few weeks to a few months, depending on a few factors. Your current skill level, speed, stock knowledge, frequency and duration of your sessions can shorten or lengthen the time. After a few sessions, you can ask your tutor how much time they think it will take for you to complete the service.

You may also hire Japanese translators if you only need to translate Japanese documents into English

As with learning any other language or skill, it doesn’t seem easy at the beginning. Learning Japanese can even appear overwhelming at first, as it has three alphabets. But if you book a capable tutor on Airtasker, your confidence will increase along with the lessons they impart. The difficulty of learning the language depends on your motivation, willingness to learn, the time you spend practising it, and your tutor’s skill. 

Apart from credentials and years of experience teaching the language, your tutor’s skill in motivating students is crucial. Patience, a positive attitude and perseverance in teaching beginning students are some of the qualities you should seek in a Japanese tutor. You can see which Japanese tutor is best for you by looking at their reviews and ratings from former students who booked them on our platform. 

What do Japanese tutoring services include?

Japanese tutoring services include all the necessary activities to develop or hone your language skills. You can hire a language tutor suited to your particular skill level. There are private Japanese language tutors who offer Japanese lessons for kids, Japanese grammar lessons for beginners, or even conversational Japanese lessons. 

The service can include setting your learning objectives, teaching you the alphabets, instruction in grammar, spelling and sentence construction and learning useful phrases for everyday conversation. Your tutor can give you tests after each lesson and a final test to track your progress.

Japanese Tutoring: Setting learning objectives

Your Japanese lessons begin with your tutor creating a syllabus. Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, this can help you attain the level of skill you want in speaking, writing and reading Japanese. Your personalised syllabus can also help track your progress. 

Learning the Japanese alphabets

Your tutor can teach you the Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana alphabets. Don’t worry if you are a beginner and find these lessons overwhelming - your tutor can teach you the basics. They can start you on the 46 characters in Hiragana, and teach you the differences of each alphabet and their uses. Some tutors can teach you how to read, write and pronounce Katakana and Kanji characters if your Japanese language skills are more advanced.  

Speaking, reading and writing Japanese

These Japanese lessons can include learning how to read, write and speak the most useful conversational phrases and words. This instruction includes how to construct and express proper sentences in Japanese. To keep your lessons exciting, your tutor can use various instructional methods and media, such as instructional videos, anime, textbooks, Japanese films and other media. 

Japanese proficiency tests

Your tutor can give you short tests after each lesson to see how well you’ve improved and what areas need improvement. You can receive a final exam that covers all the lessons towards the end of the service. Your private Japanese tutor can give you feedback after each test and let you know if you’ve achieved your learning objectives. 

If you get low scores on any of the tests, they can redo the lessons and give you new tests as necessary. This process is repeated until you master the lessons. After you’ve learned Japanese, why not learn another language?
