I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

Toshi is teaching my 11-year old daughter Japanese and my daughter loves it! She is very motivated and Toshi is friendly, knowledgeable. We are so happy to work with Toshi. Highly recommend!
Mildred
Toshi has had several sessions with our son. Out of all the tutors and teachers that he has had in his life Toshi has been the best. Toshi has done an amazing job building his confidence. When he is in session I can hear him laughing and when he is done he is so excited for the next session. I would highly recommend Toshi. Thank you Toshi for everything you do!
Noelle
I was feeling very nervous about taking my first the lesson, but Toshi was very kind and knowledgeable. I was able to laugh throughout the whole lesson, and really start to feel comfortable. When I struggled to find words Toshi was able to help me find them, and was very patient with listening to me say “ummm” while I racked my brain. If you are looking for a great Japanese tutor, look no further than Toshi.

"Since Last December my daughter really enjoys having Sensei Yoshi as her Japanese tutor. Sensei is great at understanding what my daughter needs to learn in order to do her best in her Japanese class. Sensei Yoshi has been very patient with my daughter and has touched on the basics of Japanese further pushing my child to execell. I really recommended Sensei Yoshi if you are looking for a Japanese teacher"

"Would 100% reccomend Aimi せんせい to any student looking to learn everything from conversational phrases/basics to someone looking to becoming fluent in the language.

Having almost no experience with the language, within the first 5 weeks of learning from Aimi せんせい, I have made tremendous strides in learning Japanese, so much so that I've decided to continue taking lessons beyond the first 5.

During each lesson, in addition to having a well structured learning plan, Aimi is amazing at explaining the cultural origins or words/phrases as well as some of the more nuanced aspects of the language. In addition to this, she also is very responsive over text, and is able to answer any questions I might have throughout the week (outside of lessons).

Lastly, I think the best part of these lessons are that they are fun, instant feedback and learning goals oriented, and that she changes the lesson/matches the pace the student is trying to/learning at.

γ‚γ‚ŠγŒγ¨γ†γ”γ–γ„γΎγ—γŸ, せんせい!"
