Our Story

Who we are

TA 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 tutoring at a tiny restaurant in Tokyo into an organization of academic, test prep, and college admissions experts, helping international students to realize and reach their potential and capture the opportunities of the future.

We believe in 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

Our mission is to guide and teach anyone with the desire to learn while establishing and maintaining world-class standards for education and mentorship. We hope that our team not only teaches students but inspires them to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and beyond their limits, and nothing is more exciting to us than seeing our students achieve their goals!

Our Values

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.

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.

Strength in Difference

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


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