I have been taking regular weekly lessons with Chie-san for several months now. She is a very conscientious teacher and will answer your questions thoroughly. We have a system where I can put down questions that I have in advance and she will go through them at the next lesson. She always has well-prepared answers that she explains well. She is also very approachable such that you feel comfortable asking her anything. She is also mindful of where you are at in your language study and will cater her lessons to meet your needs (eg she incorporates short conversations in our lessons to help me with my speaking ability). I really enjoy my lessons with her!

A very well organized, enthusiastic and friendly teacher, Chie-san has genuinely made learning Japanese not only fun, but also kept me engaged and interested in the language during the lessons I had. She also provides extra pieces of information that may not be in line with the textbook, but is still relevant to the student. (e.g how to give more information about one self in Japanese).

Chie-san is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher who is always making sure you understand the grammar and words that are being used, but also challenges you to try to figure out the right answer by yourself first. She is also always ready to answer any questions you might have! :)

Lessons with Chie-san always feel more like chatting with a friend even though she is helping me to prepare for my exams at University!~
