Differences between Partner and Pro Class

Japanese language class Nagoya school private lessons partner pic

Partner class Our most popular class!

This course is popular with students on a budget who want to study Japanese. Tutors are unpaid volunteer staff who have been approved by Helping Hands and Hearts Japan, Inc. after a careful selection process.  These tutors may or may not have professional educational experience, but all are native speaking Japanese people with some level of English fluency. Some of them are aspiring Japanese teachers. Many of them have lived overseas or worked with overseas volunteers. Students work with a tutor to set up a location and schedule workable for each person. 

Japanese language class Nagoya school private lessons pro pic

Pro class

Tutors are professional, experienced Japanese teachers. This course is best suited for students who are not on a strict budget and want to rapidly improve their Japanese for occupational or educational reasons. Pro classes are especially appropriate for students who want to score well on the Japanese Proficiency Language Test. Pro class tutors can teach at your desired time and location, including your home or office.

Student testimony


Jennifer stone

The teachers are friendly, patient, very helpful, and you can learn the language in a comfortable environment.  My learning is continuing even after returning to my home country. Thank you!


Michael Chew

My course was run by a highly qualified teacher, so I had the motivation to continue learning Japanese. She always encouraged me, even when my work was very busy.


Nicole Dryden

What an experience! Thanks to my teacher's passion, I love Japanese even more. I was able to learn in a short time what I thought would take me years to learn. I can now enjoy the latest Japanese anime without subtitles.


Emma Jordan

The person I chose for my family was Naomi.  She was an excellent tutor and who loved to play games and sing with my children. She had studied abroad, so she was very good at English.  I am so thankful that because of Naomi’s instruction, my son was able make good friends with Japanese children.

Tutor's voice


University student

Many foreign friends helped me a lot during my study abroad. Now, I want to return the favor to foreigners staying in Japan.






I have time to help people while my kids are at school. I want to use my English skill and get to know people from all over the world while helping people learn Japanese.



I am an engineer, and I’ve worked in many different countries. I want to help somebody by making use of my experience and my ability in Japanese.

Usually, you can start lessons about a week after applying. You can work directly with the tutor to schedule lessons at a time and on a day convenient for you both.

Where can I study?

Students can study in public places such as civic centers, cafes, homes, offices, and online. Home and office are for Pro classes only. If a student is a child, pregnant, or has a difficult time going outside the classroom, we will consider offering the student a partner class.

Why is the partner class so cheap? Private lessons at other schools are usually much more expensive!
Yes, that is true. Usually, private lessons at other language schools cost between 3,000 and 6,000 yen per hour! We would like to offer 5 hours of lessons per month for 3,750 in Partner class because we hope that as many foreigners as possible will be free from language problems and spend a fulfilling life in Japan. Our partner tutors around the world will be happy to help you learn more about and like Japan.
I can't speak any Japanese yet.  Can I still study?

Of course. Please don't worry. Many of our customers are know little or no Japanese.  You can ask a tutor for a tutor who can speak English. We also have teachers who can speak Spanish, French, and Chinese.

About us

We are Helping Hands: HH JapaNeeds, a leading language school in Nagoya. Our mission is to arrange Japanese language partners for every foreigner who comes to Japan, allowing them to learn Japanese whenever and wherever they want with ultimate flexibility. As a result, we not only relieve everyone of their language difficulties but also unleash their potential for success in life. It is very difficult to find the right tutor, even though there are many Japanese people around. Wouldn't it be nice to have the perfect tutor near you who is always ready to answer your questions? How great would it be if there were a convenient and easy way to meet a Japanese tutor near you? We have developed an arrangement optimization system that carefully analyzes a student's preferences and requirements.  Our system then matches the student with the perfect tutor who can best meet his or her preferences and requirements.  With this, students don't have to spend countless hours searching for a teacher.  Instead, they can spend that time learning with their tutor. Let's make your life a wonderful journey with our Japanese language tutors!



Naoteru Honda founded HH JapaNeeds as a Japanese language school in 2010 with HH&H Japan. He read and manage some companies. But his life hasn’t always been a success. What helped him through these difficult times was attending a language school. He gained confidence and a positive outlook of himself when he realized he could express his feelings in a different language with greater and greater fluency. With the desire to share this life-changing experience he started HH JapaNeeds. We hope you can share the story of your wonderful language journey.

Supported by HH&H Japan Inc.

HH&H Japan's mission is to build a greater level of multicultural coexistence in the world.  We hope to achieve this by promoting, through education, Japan’s language and culture.  As more foreigners increase their understanding of Japanese culture and ability to communicate in Japanese, a greater number of relationships are formed between them and Japanese people.  We feel strongly that these relationships form the foundation of a world peace and mutual respect between cultures. Thank you for your support. Love all, serve all!
