It has been a couple years since I had Jinko-san as a language instructor; due to scheduling (mine, not hers). The purpose for me to study the language was because I had an opportunity to visit a relative who was living in Japan for a short term and I wanted to have a basic understanding of the language and culture. With her instruction I was able to communicate a little with the people there, and I was able to read in Hiragana and Katakana, which I found to be extremely useful.
Jinko-san is very passionate about the Japanese language and has a gift in teaching the subject matter in such a way as to make memorable and entertaining.
If I ever have the opportunity to visit Japan again; or if my busy schedule ever clears up; I would definitely like to learn more Japanese from Jinko-san.

Truly excellent learning experience. I first enrolled in one of Jinko sensei's community college courses, which was too easy for me, but engaging Jinko-sensei as a private tutor ended up being the perfect solution! Scheduling is flexible, she explains lessons in an interesting and understandable way. The best are the conversations-- they are informative, insightful, fun, and challenge your listening and speaking without overwhelming you. I look forward to every class!

I've been a student of Jinko-san for nearly two years. Jinko-san has been patient, is adept at explaining things (I ask a LOT of questions!), and works at my pace. She is friendly and is genuinely passionate about teaching the language.
I look forward to my one-on-one classes with her every week. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in learning Japanese.

I enrolled and completed Sensei Hanson's Elementary Japanese class in 2012. Learning the language from her was an authentic and informative experience as she is a native speaker of Japanese. I went on to certifying in the JLPT exam and continue to seek higher levels of certification. Sensei Hanson has influenced me to study Japanese.

I started studying Japanese with Ms. Jinko a few years ago. First as a student in her college course, and then as her tutoring student. She has a talent for making lessons in this complex language fun, interesting, and incredibly educational. She is a very nice person, very organized and helpful, and motivates through encouragement. I have honestly enjoyed every single lesson! I have full confidence that under her, I will become fluent in Japanese.

My son took Japanese lessons with Miss Jinko for three years. He learned not only the Japanese language but learned about Japanese culture as well. He thoroughly enjoyed his lessons. Jinko was flexible and made learning fun. She remains my son's all time favorite teacher.
