Japanese Lessons – Fees

Are private 1-1 Japanese lessons expensive?

For the price of a decent Japanese meal in a restaurant, every week you can experience so much more than just a full tummy! 🎌 🔜 🧠

A fast, efficient way to learn, your private 1-1 lessons will be at your level – no more wasting precious lesson time going over things you already know – or missing the point of something too difficult.

I tried group Japanese lessons, but found I have so many more questions than a group setting could possibly accomodate. I’m a beginner, but really keen to make progress, so a private tutor is better for my needs. – CB, TV Producer, 2020

Group lessons can appear cheaper than private 1-1 tuition, but work much like gym memberships. It’s very easy to miss classes you’ve already paid for, and then hard to catch up, which can put you off returning. Mottainai! What a waste!

Later on, students and tutors may choose to meet in person again (travel fees would be applied at the time, case by case).

If you need to miss a week with your Japanese tutor, just let them know in advance. If need to cancel less than 24 hours in advance (hey, it can happen to anyone) the lesson fee will be charged at just 50% – in order to reimburse your tutor fairly.
