Christopher is very knowledgeable and passionate about the language he teaches. He is patient, flexible and kind with his feedback. I have truly enjoyed my time learning Spanish and can not wait to continue with lessons. I would highly recommend Christopher!
Ethan
Christopher is an extremely friendly teacher who works hard to find you a goal to work towards for your instrument. He helps you if you mainly want to self study, or he helps choose songs and methods to learn if you want to study with him mostly.

I’d definitely recommend him for beginners!

First lesson. Too soon to tell. Not what I was expecting, but I had nothing on which to base any expectation. I will trust the process.

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

🇯🇵 This class is for only Japanese learners! アメリカン・ハリウッド・イングリッシュ英会話を学びませんか?日本人の方(18歳以下)の為の初心者向けの英会話レッスンです。アメリカの南カリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスに20年以上在住しております。今すぐ役立つアメリカ・ハリウッド英語の英会話をズームでお教え致します。世界各国のどこからでも学んで頂く事ができます。

🌟英語には色んなアクセントがありますが、アメリカのロサンゼルスの標準な英語が1番世界で使わせています。エンターテイメント業界があるハリウッド、また世界的にビジネスを広げている会社はアメリカの会社が1番多いので、標準なアメリカン英語の発音を使う事が好ましいのです。また、アメリカのニュース・キャスターは全てロサンゼルス(南カリフォルニア)の発音に統一されています。例えばアメリカのニューヨーク州、ケンタッキー州やテネシー州など他の州は日本語と同じように方言や強いアクセントがあります。発音が違うと”田舎から来たの?”と思われてしまいがちなのが正直なところ現実です。日本語で例えると、東京弁が標準語ですが、九州弁や秋田弁など習ってしまうと仕事や普通の会話で使えなくなりますね。それと同じで標準なアメリカ・ロサンゼルス発音(南カリフォルニア)の英語が最も好ましいのです。

Jentezen. F
The reviews of Toshi outlined a tutor who was fully devoted to the craft of teaching the Japanese language. They were accurate with their description of this amazing tutor. None of the reviews are inflated. Toshi makes the pain of the language tolerable while delivering accurate information - grammar and vocabulary. I would highly recommend him for learners at any level.
Savannah
Toshi was a great teacher! Very patient with teaching and answering all the pop culture questions I had throughout the months!

My son has been working with Toshi for 3 years now, and he has developed a true love for the language and culture of Japan. Toshi is a great instructor and a wonderful human being. We couldn't be happier with this experience!

Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
