8 Ways to Make the Most out of a Japanese Tutor Session — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks for writing at my request. I’m going to Japan in August so really want to focus on improving speaking so I’m going to find an online tutor. Seems like a great alternative to classes as you can control that it’s entirely in J-J and can fit into an irregular schedule.

  2. Do you think that, perhaps, hiring a cheaper tutor is okay early on, and then you can hire a more expensive, more experienced tutor when you progress into the more advanced aspects of the language? Just a thought.

    • It depends on what you want out of a tutor, even as a beginner, and whether a tutor of that commitment can provide what you want/need.

      The danger I see is that a beginner is influenced easily. A bad influence can cause someone to quit Japanese. So it’s kind of weighing saving a few dollars a lesson vs. making sure you actually stick with Japanese for the long run.
