Teaching since:

I am a Japanese national and have been living in the United States since 2001. I studied at Shizuoka University in Japan and my major was education. My courses focused on international culture and the classes prepared me to teach the Japanese language and culture to foreigners.

I am currently teaching more than 20 classes a week including classes at a language school and private tutoring, So far, through the many years of being a tutor, l taught and am still currently teaching Americans, British, Chinese, Koreans, Filipinos and others, ranging from elementary students to retirees privately and tutored them in various aspects of Japanese depending on their individual needs through English instruction.

The thing I love most about tutoring is seeing the face and eyes of a student that has been having a difficult time with a lesson, when he/she finally grasps what I have been trying to teach them. Another favorite thing about tutoring is watching the evolution of a student over time and knowing that I am solely responsible for that progression. I am very thorough and patient when it comes to tutoring my students. I will go to any length to make sure that whatever it is that I am teaching them will be absorbed by them resulting in their betterment, thereby building a sound foundation from which to build.

Great experience! Kazumasa-sensei is very thorough and patient. He does a great job of covering lots of bases in a given time and gives plenty of material in a lesson to challenge yourself with. Highly recommend! :)

Really great Sensei! Knowledgeable, Kind, Thoughtful & Polite. Mr. Kazumasa worked with me personally to design a curriculum and improve my Reading/Speaking/Listening&Understanding abilities drastically over 4 months in preparation for my language test. I had not used Japanese for more than 10 years, but with Mr. Kazumasa's patience, and dedication, I gained much needed confidence and performed very well. He goes above and beyond to ensure your success.

I've had several different tutors throughout college and I have to admit that Ueno sensei was the best tutor that I've ever had.
