· Japanese · Online 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.

· Japanese · Online 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.

· Japanese · Online 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.

· Japanese · Online 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.

· Japanese · Online 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.
