Emily E.

5 Japanese lessons

I also highly recommend her for "Finals" - our last tutoring meeting was walking around the local foreign market (which included Japanese food items) and speaking in nothing but Japanese for an hour. This fall I walked into my Japanese class and was completely on top of my game, largely because of Amandah. If you need a Japanese tutor, she's the one you want!
Nicholas F.

3 Japanese lessons

Akari-san is an excellent Japanese tutor! Not only is she very flexible in terms of meeting times but she is also a very skilled Japanese tutor. She took a very dense Japanese text about the call market in Japan (Money Market) and together, we went sentence by sentence dissecting not only the kanji (both meaning and readings) but the overall reading comprehension by letting me re-summarize words or phrases with my own Japanese vocabulary.
Kevin B.

6 Japanese lessons

Of course this is not to say that Yumiko-sensei is harsh or intimidating; on the contrary she's extremely nice and friendly, and caring about her students' progress, so improving my Japanese has been fun rather than a chore. Reading other reviews of her, it seems she has been just as helpful to students of all levels of Japanese study. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning or improving their Japanese.
