WHO WE ARE

Tokyo Academics is the passion project of a constellation of teachers, researchers, and academics in Tokyo, Japan. Since 2012, we’ve evolved from a few university friends teaching over a restaurant in Nakameguro, to a growing number of part-time and full-time individuals located in a share office, to what we are now: an organization of experts deeply passionate about helping students meet their potential and capture the opportunities of the future.

OUR VISION

A world where individuals have the capability to learn anything, the confidence to tackle any challenge, and the community support to reach success.

OUR MISSION

To guide and teach anyone who wants to learn while establishing world-class standards for education and mentorship.

OUR VALUES

null
Integrity

Your reputation is your greatest asset. Protect it at all costs and never do anything you wouldn’t feel comfortable explaining out loud to your peers.

null
Sustainable Growth

We focus on the long-term, sustainable growth of our students, staff, and community. There are no magic tricks – only discipline, structure, and hard work.

null
Impact Through Effort

There is no glory in effort without results and impact. Your merit is measured by your demonstrable, tangible impact, not by your expenditure of time or resources.

null
Efficiency

Aim for the best possible outcome in the least wasteful manner.

Strength In Difference

The more differences we share, the stronger our ideas, perspectives, and solutions
