Private Lesson Schedule

This schedule shows when you can take private Japanese lessons.

Our teachers live around the world, so we can offer private Japanese lessons virtually 24 hours a day. Choose your level and see the times and teachers that best fit your schedule.

There is no need to choose a particular teacher—we will match you based on your desired lesson times, level, and learning goals. Your private lessons will be taught by that one teacher.

At the upper beginner level and above, you can also take coordinated private lessons from two or more Nihongo-Pro teachers.

Choose your time zone:
Do you want a teacher who speaks your language?
All of our teachers speak Japanese natively and use the direct method of teaching (except if you have never studied Japanese), which means instruction is in Japanese as much as possible. If you prefer a teacher who speaks another language, choose below:
