Current Availablity

Due to the high demand of Private Tutoring, it’s taking a lot of time for us to find tutors. We will contact you once we find matching tutor.


  • Scheduling: The student and instructor will decide on the lesson date, time and location.  Each lesson will be one hour or can be extended up to 120 minutes upon request. Students must notify the instructor 24 hours in advance if they plan to reschedule.  Students will be charged for a lesson rescheduled less than 24 hours in advance. If a student is not present within the first 20 minutes of the scheduled tutoring time, the lesson will be cancelled and not rescheduled. Payment for this lesson will not be refunded.
  • Payment: Payment for tutoring must be received before the first lesson. At the first lesson, the teacher will evaluate your Japanese skills, and work with you to develop a curriculum.  All receipts will be emailed to the student; please retain for your records.
  • Our language program including private tutoring is for the Japan Society of Northern California  members only.
  • 5-class packs expire three months from the date of purchase
    10-class packs expire 6 months from the date of purchase.
  • Cancellations: Students who wish to cancel their private tutoring must contact their instructor and the JSNC at least 3 business days before their next lesson. The remaining tuition balance, calculated on the basis of the non-discounted price, will be refunded. Thus if the student does not complete the lesson package, they will be charged at the non-discounted rate for classes they take.  Please note that membership fees paid at the time of registration are non-refundable. Requests for cancellation may be made by email to [email protected]
