Dipankar is very knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated. I received lessons from him for 6 months and in that time I scored 1st place in the unrated category in my first chess tournament and went on to improve my rating by 200 points.
I highly recommend Dipankar for chess lessons!
I've taken informal lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 years or so. He does a great job at explaining the game of chess. He is very patient. I have been able to learn a few different openings and have seen great improvement in my games. It is apparent Dipankar loves the game of chess and has an avid interest in improving his own abilities. You won't find a better fit!
I have been learning from Dipankar for around 15 months and I like his teaching style a lot.

The sessions are fun and educational and although I was a total beginner, I recently got my first ever medal in a chess tournament.

Japanese Original Traditional Origami

Origami is fun, easy, inexpensive and great for sharing with others. I teach many different types of origami. :)

*Easy Origami
*Fun Origami
*Fruits & Vegetables
*Sea Creatures
*Sweet & Food
*Others Many More...;)

Origami (Ori meaning "to fold", and kami meaning "paper")
is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin.

There is nothing quite like the joy you get from transforming a plain square piece of paper into a container, animal, flower, etc.

It still puts a smile on your faces when you complete an origami. :)

Toshi Sensei was great at sharing a mix of Japanese cultural knowledge and language skills. Our first session was jam packed with valuable learning. Looking forward to future sessions.
Very personable and knowledgeable. Easy to learn from.
I'm totally new to Japanese and I was very nervous. I just completed my 4th lesson and I'm finding learning Japanese is fun! Toshi is very patient and he is helping me create a plan forward. I have been working hard and have kind of gotten Hiragana,Katakana, but I need a lot more practice. I am able to read and write some words and in our lesson today I spoke my first complete Japanese sentence. Thank you Toshi for your help and for making my Japanese journey fun!
