First lesson with Mr Park was really good. I have never used an online tutor before so I didn’t know what to expect. He did very well in assessing my current level and pushing thru material. Even limited self study he still covered things that I didn’t know that was pertinent to the language and I appreciate the way he explains things. The language is not a 1-1 and Mr Park did well in explaining how it converts over.

It's first time for me that I teach somebody Japanese as a teacher. I've taught a lot of my foreign friends Japanese by taking about culture, travel tips and food. What I will do in my class would be having a daily conversation with me. How I studied English was I always asked questions like "what does this mean?" "how do you say this in English?" so in my classes ASK me questions about Japanese! I think it's the quickest way to learn languages :)

My daughter loved her lesson with Yuna. My daughter is just beginning to learn Japanese and had taken a few lessons elsewhere. She felt very comfortable with Yuna who was very knowledgeable, personable, professional and kind. Yuna made the learning experience a lot of fun for my daughter and look forward very much to their next session. An absolutely wonderful tutor.

Seiko-San was very cooperative and encouraging during my first online lesson. I believe it was her first time teaching online and she did well. I am really happy today with my experience, she gave me some nice compliments. I look forward to the next lesson.

Seiko walks with me every lesson through the "Japanese for busy people" book and I like how she asks me to go through exercises in japanese so I can get used to listening. We also spend time enriching vocabulary.
