Feature of Partner class

This course is popular with students on a budget who want to study Japanese. Tutors are unpaid volunteer staff who have been approved by Helping Hands and Hearts Japan, Inc. after a careful selection process.  These tutors may or may not have professional educational experience, but all are native speaking Japanese people with some level of English fluency. Some of them are aspiring HH JapaNeeds Japanese teachers. Many of them have lived overseas or worked with overseas volunteers online. Students work with a tutor to set up a location and schedule workable for each person.

Feature of Pro Class

Tutors are professional, experienced Japanese teachers. This course is best suited for students who are not on a strict budget and want to rapidly improve their Japanese for occupational or educational reasons. Pro classes are especially appropriate for students who want to score well on the Japanese Proficiency Language Test. Pro class tutors can teach at your desired time and location, including your home or office or online classes.

There are HH JapaNeeds Japanese tutors in various areas throughout Japan. Most of them are looking for Japanese students and are looking forward to teaching Japanese; they are conditionally registered as Japanese language staff with HH&H Japan and have passed a strict teacher qualification screening. Many of them speak English because they have valuable experience of studying abroad and learning the language from the locals. Since they know how inconvenient it is for foreigners in Japan to not understand the language, they can teach with the learners’ feelings in mind. Ask the coordinator at HH JapaNeeds if there is a tutor that meets your requirements. Free trial lessons are usually available in about a week. Let’s start learning Japanese with HH JapaNeeds’ Japanese tutors!
