I started taking lessons about a month ago and so far it has been a very positive experience. My Japanese is at the intermediate and conversational level and I reached out to Sensei Yoshi to help me take my skills to a higher level. The teaching materials are very effective and Yoshi is very knowledgeable and supportive and is correcting my grammatical errors, which is exactly what I need. I signed up for 2 months' worth of lessons to start and will probably continue 3times a week for at least six months. I highly recommend Sensei Yoshi.

Was very tolerant of the fact that I had zero knowledge of the language upon entry. He also doesn't waste time and is good about explaining words and their meanings. His snippets of knowledge about Japanese traditions and their relationship with certain words he drops added bonus insight to them that I really enjoyed! He is also very clear about what should be done to improve for the next lessons!

Oyamada Sensei is very good at finding a student's skill level and tailoring his instruction to improve the skills and challenge the limits of the student, which has quickly spurred me on to dramatic improvements in my Japanese ability after only 3 lessons. He also makes it fun by playing to the interests of the student and keeping the sessions light and full of humor. Highly recommended if you want to work hard, have fun, and learn Japanese!

After Practice of Oyamada karate......!
The core emphasis in Oyamada Karate is use of the Sabaki Method, a system of techniques employed with the goal of turning an opponent's power and momentum against opponents and re- positioning oneself to the opponent's -blind- spot to counterattack from a more advantageous position.

Very pleased with Yoshifumi . My kids learned a lot since they've started Japanese lessons. They love to go to their Japanese lessons, and they started to practice since then. They enjoy learning process and I am so happy to see them progressing so well. Sensei Yoshifumi has great personality, high professional and communication.

Sensei Yoshi had a lot of resources to share, lots of examples which he was able to access as I asked questions. A very thorough lesson with as much detail as I wanted.

The lesson went so smoothly! Yoshi wasted no time in diving right into the lesson, which was wonderful. I am so appreciative! Yoshi took the time to call me the day before to get a feel for my Japanese level and created a corresponding custom plan. Yoshi already seems like a wonderful teacher and a lovely person- and this is just after one lesson! I am highly impressed. =)

Sensei is an awesome teacher!
I have been taking lessons with Yoshi-Sensei for about 3 months, and he is a great teacher. He easily adapts to my weak areas, even during a lesson, and constantly keeps me challenged and interested. He's always able to accommodate anything, and I love study from him.

Excellent Native Japanese Teacher!
Yoshi sensei does a great job teaching the fundamentals of the Japanese language For those who are new to or relearning (like me) Japanese, his teaching style and focus is perfect. He teaches well rounded lessons; covering written, spoken, and reading aspects through Kanji, Katakana, and hiragana. On a personal level, he is friendly, patient, fun, kind person. In addition, I have learned so many new things like Japanese Calligraphy, Japanese tea ceremony, Origami, Japanese traditional healthy meals, Japanese culture, etiquettes, manners, I highly recommend him as a tutor.

This is my first time using the online class. I enrolled my 6 year-old who has written experience with Japanese but needs to practice his conversation skills. Sensei made the class very interactive and we used a lesson plan. Even though the lessons were geared toward an older student, he made sure the vocabulary, sentences and daily experience applied to my son. Highly recommend Sensei Yoshi! Looking forward to the next class! Thank you Sensei!
