Affordable Online Japanese Lessons


Haruka started OHARU in 2020. She discovered that teaching was her true calling after working at a cram school. Since she started her online teaching business, she has gathered more than 30 students, and new students are joining every day. 

Haruka also employs several part-time teachers to help with the workload. All of these teachers are strictly vetted, to make sure that they are native speakers who have experience teaching.

I really enjoy learning from Haruka Sensei. She teaches really well. Not only she's nice, she makes sure I understand what's going on during class and helps out if I have any questions for her. I think I got more motivated to learn the language after I met her.

You are provided with the learning materials for the lessons, she is very good at with her English and can go at any pace of learning that best suits you.Before finding her I had been trying to learn on my own with apps, while I did learn some things, I still had not been able to learn so much more quickly and fully understand everything I had been learning.

She is such a great teacher! I was intimidated to learn Japanese at first, but she is so kind and makes every lesson fun and comfortable! Her lessons are very affordable and she has been flexible working with my schedule. I also had a lesson with Honami-sensei who substitutes when Haruka-sensei is not available. She is very knowledgable and has a great teaching style as well !

In this journey I have learnt a lot from Haruka sensei. I completely recommend her to all those who are looking to learn Japanese in the most clear way, an easiest and as quick as possible.

No complaints!

Haruka sensei is very kind and helpful throughout the lessons, she always explains things in very understandable and relatable wats.

 The lessons always flow very quickly and without stress. And of course big advantage is that you can have lessons from comfort of your home.
