I've opened a paid online Japanese tutoring service.

I’ve been mulling this over for a while and have come to the conclusion that now is the right time to start offering tutoring services for up-and-coming Japanese learners. While freelance translation work remains my main bread and butter and many of you follow me here for my hobbyist stuff, I know that there are also a lot of you aspiring to master Japanese as well and I want to be able to better serve you all as well better than I could just by answering asks in my free time as I have been up until now.

So to accomplish that, I’m taking appointments for one-on-one Japanese tutoring sessions done over Skype starting today. It doesn’t matter where you live in the world; as long as you’ve got an Internet connection good enough to at least chat through audio (though video is obviously best!), I’m willing to help you out no matter what step in the learning process you’re at, whether you’re still in the beginning stages or grappling with more advanced material!

The wordy specifics, including contact information, are in the link and definitely please check them out before getting in touch with me, but in a nutshell, this service is geared towards:

  • Students preparing for midterm or, more likely in at least the US at this stage, final exams and have lingering points that need addressing before it’s too late.
  • Learners struggling with aspects of Japanese that aren’t adequately documented outside, well, Japanese. Kanji memorization, conversational flow, verb conjugations, tenses, grammatical expressions, whatever, I’ve been there time after time and can help you get past those humps in intuitive terms you’ll understand.
  • People who live in areas with little access to native Japanese speakers to help provide feedback on their output, especially outside the classroom, as well as those who live in places with few reliable local tutoring services.
  • Most anybody just looking for one-on-one help to better their language studies in general, really. Self-studiers are also more than welcome to sign up!

As somebody who’s lived in Japan, studied at some of its best schools, and uses Japanese for work on a day-to-day basis, I’m living proof that you don’t have to be born in Japan to get far in the language and want to help others make the most of their journey mastering it, too. My life has changed for the vastly better with another language to express myself in and I want to share that joy with as many other people as possible.

Again, look at the link for specific details, but my rates as of right now basically hover between $20-$25 per hour depending on the circumstances, with discounts available for groups that apply for a tutoring session with three or more people in them. You’re not committed to sign up for a session right away if you choose to email me, so feel free to contact me just to get a free consultation, too!

Don’t know who I am? If you pay attention to Japanese video game industry news, there’s a decent chance you’ve seen my work in some form or another, but just in case, feel free to look around the rest of my portfolio site to get a good idea about who I am and why I’m hopefully trustworthy as a white guy claiming he knows his way around Japanese. Of course, I’m still always taking offers for freelance translation work in a wide variety of fields, too, not just game-related, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with me for that, too!

I think that’s basically the long and short of it. Even if you don’t feel you need my services, please consider reblogging this and sharing this on other relevant sites if you think there are other people you know who might be interested. I love sharing my knowledge and education with other people, so the more prospective speakers who know I’m out there, the better! I think this is an opportunity where we can all benefit in coming together and I can’t wait to hopefully work with some of you directly in realizing your Japanese goals!

See you soon,

-Tom James/Pepsiman

PS: This doesn’t mean I’ll stop taking asks about Japanese learning. Far from it! I’ve just decided to open up this additional service for those wanting more personalized attention and help with their studies, rather than just general advice. Feel free to keep sending in your questions and I’ll keep on answering them! Promise!

PPS: I’m going to reblog this a few times over the course of the next 24 hours to ensure my regular followers catch this and then tone it down to maybe once or month or so. I figure I should probably be a little more proactive about advertising my paid services, yeah?

November 23rd, 15.30 | Afternoon break.

Been dealing with an online course - thanks to the one who has shared edX on my dashboard, you made my life! - about Marketing & Communication in the past 3 hours. Needed some caffè latte to go on through the module. I’m feeling so good, I’m really interested in learning always more and more about these topics :) 
+ some Christmas-inspired cookies. Why isn’t it Christmas already!?

PS. I’ve made some Christmas shopping on Saturday, still wondering how to decorate my room :) As soon as I manage some time to arrange the decorations, I’ll upload a pic. 

Have a good study-day! ♡
