Really great teacher. Easy to learn with and is very good at explaining the cultural aspects of the Japanese language.
Julianne
Out of all the tutors I've been with over the years, Toshi is by far the best. He is able to take the most difficult concepts and break it down to where anyone can understand which is something that most teachers aren't good at. All and all Toshi is very knowledgeable at what he does as well as understanding and accommodating. Toshi is celebrity tutor you can't go wrong with.
Liz
I’m totally new to Japanese and I was very nervous. I just completed my 3rd 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, 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! :D

During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

My daughter is absolutely LOVING her lessons with Yuriko. We travel often and it is wonderful that my daughter is able to continue her lessons, where ever we are.

As well she has a very congenial personality, is easy-going, and shares her interests in Japan and its culture. Learning with Sunho is fun and interesting !"

Omotenashi: Japanese Hospitality and Etiquette

When you're studying a foreign language, it's helpful to also learn about culture, history, and traditions. Here, Japanese teacher Taro T. introduces the Japanese concept omotenashi... As someone who learned English as a second language, I truly believe in the importance of finding something positive from a new culture, and adopting it in your own life. This doesn’t just help you learn a new language, but it will also help you grow as an individual. Courtesy for Others Omotenashi i …
