I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

Kiernan
My first Japanese lesson was excellent. Because of my weird amount of previous knowledge, we spent a large amount of the time finding my exact skill level and fixing my bad intonations, and where I need to start. It was very fun to try to communicate my own thoughts in Japanese, and Toshi was very patient with me while I fumbled my words. I look forward to future lessons and I have high hopes for the final results.
Juliette
Toshi taught Japanese to my 12-year-old son. He was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He was asking key questions about the Japanese problems to my son. My son felt comfortable with his way of tutoring, even Toshi is knowledgeable, he is not intimidating at all, he is a friendly Japanese wizard.
Renn
Toshi is an excellent tutor. He does a great job of assessing a student's ability, interests, and goals and tailoring the lessons to the student. He has a gift for teaching, and he creates a wonderful space for learning. As someone has mastered a number of other languages and complex grammars, I know the importance of technical ability as well, and Toshi has an excellent command of grammar, syntax, and structures of Japanese. He is a native speaker AND a great teacher. I feel fortunate to have found him and am happy to recommend him.
