review(s) for Artour.
Artour is teaching myself and my husband Japanese from scratch prior to a trip to the Rugby World Cup. Bearing in mind we are both in our 60s, he has a task on his hands! Japanese is not easy to learn but Artour is a fantastic tutor- always full of enthusiasm, energy and encouragement. He has a very broad knowledge of Japan and Japanese and therefore can intersperse grammar and vocabulary with history, geography, culture and restaurant recommendations! We highly recommend him as a tutor.

Thanks a lot for your kind words, William. Looking forward to you passing your Japanese A-levels with flying colours!
I have been taking weekly beginner Japanese lessons with Artour for a few months now, and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them.
Artour is both a professional and friendly tutor, keen on answering every question you have and very encouraging when you hit any roadblocks in your learning.
His enthusiasm for the Japanese language and culture definitely rubs off on you. On top of teaching grammar, vocabulary and kanji, he also shares bits and pieces of Japanese customs and traditions, manners and etiquette, throughout the lesson all of which are essential in assimilating into the culture.
Artour also tailors his teaching to suit you. If he sees that you are struggling in a certain area, he supports you to focus on that, and gives you studying tips and extra materials that will help you improve in your self-studying at home.
I recommend him very highly and am looking forward to having more lessons with him!

Thank you, Jasmine. It was a pleasure teaching you. Please do not hesitate to let me know should you need any help with your coursework!
My husband and I had weekly Japanese lessons from Artour for a few months before our move to Tokyo. Artour was a professional and fantastic tutor. Japanese is known to be notoriously difficult but Artours lessons gave us a great foundation in Japanese.
As we only had a few months, Artour was open to structuring the lessons and covering content that we would find most useful. His lessons and the materials he put together from different resources demonstrated that he understood our learning needs. Having tailored lessons for our learning objectives was what we valued the most about our lessons.
As complete beginners, we found Artours guidance as an experienced tutor on what to cover and in what order really useful. Our objective was to have a base in Japanese. In a few months we had achieved this and were pleased with the progress we had made. We were able to pronounce, read and write the Japanese syllabaries (hiragana and katakana), had covered the basics of Japanese grammar and had an introduction to learning kanji.
A big bonus was also discussing Japanese culture with Artour giving us tips and explaining nuances, which we found really useful.
Artour gave us tips on self-studying. With his support we were able to focus on what we should learn before the next lesson. The lessons were then great for clarifying anything we hadnt understood ourselves and getting Artours feedback before moving to the following weeks content.
Artour was well-prepared, communicated clearly, was approachable and answered any questions we had. Artour was easy to contact and responsive. He was accommodating when it came to scheduling lessons at a time that worked for us.
In our final lesson, Artour advised us on what to cover next as we continued to self-study Japanese.
We would highly recommend Artour as a tutor for Japanese but also for other subjects due to his excellent professional, but friendly, manner and methods as a tutor.
Very good teacher - highly knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and extremely adaptable for individual learning.
Artour has been teaching me Japanese at a beginner level, and has already been a huge help in keeping me moving forward.
He can teach in the style that best suits you. He can teach from a detailed grammatical approach or a more simplified natural approach. He can leave you to progress at your own pace, or push you to do your best if you think that`s what you need.
His lessons are very flexible and he is always ready to answer all of my questions. I recommend him very highly.
Fantastic tutor, really helpful and reliable. Great for learning languages :) worth the money
Very good job
