Sumie san is great to work with. In the first lesson and our introductory conversation, she worked to assess my level of experience and adjusted her lesson accordingly. Very helpful and communicative and fun to work with.
Knowledgeable, pleasant, organized, articulate, punctual. .
Very knowledgeable on the subject, goes above and beyond for her students.
Sumie Sensei is great! She truly wants her students to succeed and tailors lessons to meet your needs. I am excited to continue learning with her.
My 13 year old son has been taking online lessons with Sumie for a few weeks now and really loves it. She is kind, caring, energetic, organized, and a great motivator. She always sends us material ahead of time and tailors it towards my son's interests. Sumie is punctual and makes time in her week whenever things need to change. She is very quick to respond when we send her messages. She really seems like she cares about teaching Japanese. I would recommend her to anyone.+ Read More
My first learning session was spectacular. She is not only helping me to learn the Japanese language, she is also teaching me about Japanese culture and history, while explaining how those factors relate to the fundamentals of Japanese language (written, read, and spoken).
She is a wonderful sensei, and i would highly recommend her to anyone.
We had a great first lesson. We can't wait for next week!
I finished my first lesson last night and it was amazing! She gave me a call before the first lesson and explained a lot. I really like her teaching style and I like that she teaches about the culture too! I definitely recommend her for everyone.
My son just had his first lesson with Sumie and he loved it.
Just had my first class with Sumie. I had some computer troubles and she offered other alternatives to begin the class. I found her to be extremely helpful, polite, and nice. I learned a lot about Japan and the language in the first session and so far am very satisfied with her methods of teaching.+ Read More
Just had my first lesson! I'm super excited and pleased with her teaching! She goes into details and explains how and why things are the way they are. i really recommend her and i look forward to the rest of my lessons!
Her Japaneses' stories are very interesting and Sumie sensei is also very cute and nice. Arigatou gozaimasu sensei - ojigi.
Sumie is a great teacher! I have really appreciated the structure, challenge, and cultural insight she has brought to my lessons.
To give just a few examples, Sumie took the time to understand my goals and interests on a preparatory call before I even had my first lesson. In addition, she helped me prepare by structuring homework that targeted these goals and shaped her lesson plan to help me work towards my objectives in a way that suits my personality and schedule. Knowing my interest in Japanese culture, she has even included mini 'history lessons' on the etymology of Japanese works to help me remember them. This is truly personalised teaching!
I couldn't recommend Sumie highly enough.
I just had my first class with Sumie-Sensei and she is great! She prepared a class based in my needs and made me my own lesson material, the class went by so fast!
