Gloria Kaneko Japanese Academy


Sydney tutor in Japanese



My name is Gloria Kaneko, owner of the Kaneko Japanese Academy.

I am a qualified and experienced Japanese tutor with 18 years of teaching and tutoring experience in Australia, and have built a reputation as Sydney's premier Japanese language tutor.

I specialize in teaching Japanese for HSC and high school, but also teach primary school and adult students as well.

I have been very successful in helping many of my students achieve marks of 90% and over, and achieving Top 5 placings in NSW in the HSC.


I thoroughly teach all aspects of Japanese language personally and provide many examples to help students gain a strong understanding and pick up the language very rapidly.

My classes are conducted in a very unique style, where students are also given plenty of direct interaction one-on-one with their own dedicated native Japanese speaking assistant tutor.

I have a vast array of resources, including listening CDs, texts and past exam papers to help students prepare thoroughly for exams and excel in their results.

My lesson structure and approach to teaching has been developed and fine-tuned over 18 years and has been proven to be both highly effective and lots of fun for students.


I strive to provide the very best resources and lessons to help my students overcome difficulties and accelerate their learning.

My mission is to achieve the best possible results for my students and allow them to reach their fullest potential.

Classes follow the school syllabus, yet are personalized to the students specific needs.

Attention given to exams and assessment tasks.

Students are motivated and encouraged to proactively learn to their speed.

Regular practice and homework materials supplied to reinforce all concepts learned in the lessons.

Study and exam techniques studied to help students overcome stress.

My main academy is located just 1 minute walk from Burwood station, and I also have lessons available in Chatswood.
