Online Japanese Lessons with

Noguchi Sensei


My name is Noguchi Sensei, and I am a Japanese native with 14 years of experience teaching Japanese. Throughout the years, I have developed my own fun and engaging teaching style.

From 2009 to 2018, I taught private lessons in the U.S.A., mainly to business professionals and Japanese courses for various companies. My focus is teaching not only the Japanese language but also focusing on cultural aspects that students must know in order to communicate effectively in Japanese.

I will tailor my curriculum to your specific needs, and we can meet here in Okinawa or online.

I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your Japanese language goals!

Ms. Noguchi has been an amazing help for my Japanese learning and understanding. I've been struggling for the better part of 20 years to find a good way to step up my Japanese reading, writing, and speaking skills. Her mentoring and guidance has helped me to dramatically improve my ability! I strongly recommend her without any hesitation to anyone at any level for learning Japanese.

Noguchi-sensei's online lessons are a great way for me to continue pursuing my passion in Japanese language while maintaining a busy work life as a consultant. Her lessons are highly catered towards my personal interests and career goals, and are just as effective as her in-person lessons. I highly recommend studying under Noguchi-sensei!

I am a small business owner and I am taking classes online with Noguchi-sensei. She is very adaptive to my busy schedule, and can coordinate with a time zone difference. Her teaching style is personal and quite different from anything I have experienced. I improved my Japanese skills and now I have confidence in speaking Japanese. I would highly recommend her!

I have learned much more with Noguchi Sensei more quickly than I have with many other language classes, and, having taught English as a second language myself, I understand her real grasp of and talent in effective teaching. I look forward to her classes

I am a Dutch film director and about to make my second documentary in Japan. For that reason, I have to learn to speak the language. In February, 2015 I switched from private lessons in the Netherlands to Noguchi san's online lessons. Her lessons are good and great fun. She is a teacher at heart: difficult grammar structures become easy to understand. She is energetic and creative. You can improve on fields according your own interests and needs. I'd say go for it!

These are some short comments from a University Professor concerning my private Japanese sessions with Atsuko Noguchi. She is an excellent instructor, making the weekly sessions interesting. She has a didactic knack for explaining new linguistic paradigms by inventing illustrative examples all the time. I enjoy our meetings.
