We just signed up for additional lessons with Aimi. My granddaughter was reluctant to take online lessons. Aimi's teaching style and personality were the winning ticket. She is enthusiastic, her lessons are well organized, and she couldn't be nicer. Nicole looks forward to her lessons with Aimi, and we're so grateful and happy to have chosen her. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing teacher. She listened to what I am interested in learning about and teaches through positive reinforcement.

Aimi is wonderful. She is helping my 5 yr old son continue his Japanese education since he is out of school due to the current epidemic. She is very patient and makes learning fun. My son looks forward to his classes with Aimi every week!

I toked with hear tell now 2 class and am taking more

She is good teacher and so kind and see how you like to learn Japanes and make it in easy way.

She is so kind and smiles avry time.

The only bade thing abut hear that she do not do games and songs during the clas she tried but don’t now my be
For example = she have a learning song but just hear it no interactive with it and no games at all

But she is good teacher any one that is 11year old and up book with hear tray it you will learn and have fun.

Signed my 9 year old up for Japanese lessons, she had her first lesson last night. She was so excited to show us what she learned, although my daughter is a little shy Aimi was awesome!

This is only the second online lesson that I've ever had in Japanese. My first review that I gave to my former teacher was five stars. This one though, If I can give more than that I would but unfortunately five stars is the limit. Whoever is taking, or considering taking Japanese lessons with Aimi wont be disappointed. I'm in my 50's and Aimi would do anything to make sure that I would grasp the material. I'm 100 percent sure that she is equally outstanding teacher with younger students...And you, whoever you might be out there reading this review and willing to try learning Japaneses, go ahead and schedule a lesson with her; whether you are adult or young I'm confident Aimie will be the perfect fit.

Aimi is a great instructor. She beings a curriculum and recommended resources to help you tackle the goal of learning a new language. I've had to reschedule a few classes, and she responds to my emails quickly and accommodates my schedule changes when able! I highly recommend her as a Japanese teacher!

This was an amazing experience. Aimi made time to fit my busy schedule. She was extremely flexible and responded to my needs in a timely manner. I was very impressed with the effort she devoted into ensuring that my Japanese language needs were addressed. This has obviously been a great beginning. Thank you.

The lesson went very well. Aimi is very interactive.
The only small problem was the distraction created by a presrnce of 8 months baby crawling and making sounds.

Aimi is such a sweet lady! She is very accommodating and friendly. She cares and focuses on what you want/need to learn. She speaks good English and she's always on time. I would definitely recommend her!

I've been taking Japanese lessons now for a few months from Aimi. She is friendly, patient, and interested in what you want to learn. Because I have plans to travel to Japan, she has focused her efforts on educating me on what phrases would be helpful as well as ensuring i know key customs.
I've loved every minute.

Would 100% reccomend Aimi せんせい to any student looking to learn everything from conversational phrases/basics to someone looking to becoming fluent in the language.

Having almost no experience with the language, within the first 5 weeks of learning from Aimi せんせい, I have made tremendous strides in learning Japanese, so much so that I've decided to continue taking lessons beyond the first 5.

During each lesson, in addition to having a well structured learning plan, Aimi is amazing at explaining the cultural origins or words/phrases as well as some of the more nuanced aspects of the language. In addition to this, she also is very responsive over text, and is able to answer any questions I might have throughout the week (outside of lessons).

Lastly, I think the best part of these lessons are that they are fun, instant feedback and learning goals oriented, and that she changes the lesson/matches the pace the student is trying to/learning at.

ありがとうございました, せんせい!

Aimi was very clear and helpful. She got the basics down and made sure I understood everything. I would have given her five stars, but this is my first online lesson and I have nothing else to compare it to. She was an amazing teacher, though, and I enjoyed her lesson!

I had a wonderful experience with Aimi. She was patient, encouraging, and very well prepared for all classes. Her notes were very simple and easy to follow. I learnt a lot about Japanese grammar, pronunciation, greetings thanks to Aimi. Very highly recommend Aimi for anyone trying to learn Japanese.

Working with Aimi has been a great way to work on improving my Japanese. Aimi has helped me understand the grammar I am studying in class and a very supportive and patient teacher!

Aimi is obviously fluent in Japanese, but her English also is excellent. She is a very committed, personable, and conscientious teacher. I haven't known Aimi that long, but I already am impressed.
