My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!

Hello! I'm a native Japanese speaker and experienced Japanese tutor. I have been tutoring Japanese since when I was in university as a TA for international students. I adopt the best teaching method and material for each student's needs and make sure that learning experience is fun and effective.

About Tomoko

When it comes to learning a language, I believe that correct grammatical understanding and the amount of output are equally important. Hence I focus on both grammar and speaking/writing practice during my lesson for the best result and you'll feel that your Japanese is improving! My previous Jap

The lesson moved at a comfortable pace. As this is our first intro to Japanese lessons, we had some difficulties with word pronunciation, but Tomoko was patient with us. She helped us break the words down and understand the sentence structures.
We look forward to our next lesson.

"After the first session with Victoria, my daughter was much more confident about her ASL homework assignments and her signing abilities. She often felt that the teacher in her class would be frustrated or annoyed when she asks her to sign more slowly. The teacher would sign too fast for her to understand and she felt lost. Victoria reassured my daughter that she was doing fine and that it is hard for any beginner to learn in a “voice off” class. Victoria was patient, supportive and knowledgeable. We look forward to future sessions!"

When I felt frustration learning English or faced some difficulties of living in the U.S., she always tried to help and assist me heartfully. She even accompanied me to see a doctor when I got medical problem. I was really moved.
