How to Enroll in Private Lessons
Complete the New Student Enrollment Form. We will then send you a link to a trial-lesson questionnaire.
After you fill out the questionnaire, we will match you with a Nihongo-Pro teacher and set up a trial lesson at no charge.
If you like your trial lesson, buy lesson tickets to continue learning Japanese online.
Each ticket, good for one 50-minute private lesson with the same teacher who taught your trial lesson, costs US $28 to $35, depending on how many tickets you buy.

Nihongo-Pro tailors my lessons for my specific needs.
Before I discovered Nihongo-Pro, I was faced with an apparently unsolvable dilemma: I had a background in modern Japanese, but I needed to learn how to read Japanese texts from the late 19th and early 20th centuries for a research project. I could not, however, find any resources for reading this kind of text.

Before I started, I had no idea how much the Japanese language had changed in the past century in terms of grammar and kanji use. Working at a small university without a developed Japanese program, I was not sure where to turn for help for acquiring such a specific set of Japanese skills.

Although my situation was unusual, Nihongo-Pro was more than happy to find a teacher who could help me. Fujiwara-sensei has been an amazing resource. She helped me to find Japanese books on how to read texts written in my period of study and formulate a study plan. She has time and again patiently helped me to tackle even the most difficult texts, and I am deeply grateful for the extensive preparation she has done before each online lesson.

Nihongo-Pro is more than a resource for passing the JLPT; it can flexibly accommodate a wide variety of individual Japanese language instruction needs for students anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection.

I have an eye-opening moment almost every lesson.
First, I really appreciate Yamafuji-sensei’s ability to motivate and challenge a busy, working person like me. She keeps the pacing, workload, and material challenging and flexible when needed.

Next, Yamafuji’s sense for the student’s language ability is a great asset for anyone wanting to make the leap from intermediate to advanced. She has a way of imparting general rules and subtleties of the language in memorable ways. I feel I have an eye-opening moment almost every lesson.

Finally, it’s clear Nihongo-Pro has put some thought into the development of the online classroom tool and material. Reading materials, visual examples, quick dictionary definitions and more make the classroom an engaging experience.
