はじめまして！My name is Hikaru. I'm originally from Tokyo Japan, and this is my eighth year living in NY so it feels like my second home now. I'm currently pursuing my Master's degrees at SUNY Albany for Language Education and Communication and completed my Bachelor's Degrees in Music Department, Music Performance and Political Science. I LOVE to teach languages and also the enjoyment in devoting your time to music! Excited to hear from you!
Really enjoying our lessons so far! Hikaru is very flexible, which has really worked out well for me. Since I live in Japan our schedules are very different, but we've been able to make it work nonetheless. She always has lesson plans put together and sends you the PDF's before each lesson. If you are curious about things not in the lesson plan, she's always happy to explore that with you as well. Most importantly, she makes you feel comfortable while you are trying to read and speak Japanese. Thank you, Hikaru!+ Read More
Loved it! Hikaru is very fun and easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable practicing the language. I'm definitely looking forward to our next session!
Very patient and humble.
Hikaru is patient, encouraging and had been super flexible in scheduling our sessions.
Amazing teacher. She really helped me further my studies in the Japanese language. I can't wait for additional lessons.
Ronan loved his first lesson and really likes his instructor, Hikaru.
Hikaru is a great teacher! She's very knowledgeable and engaging. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning Japanese!
