Mei again was very patient with me. I was having a hard day with understanding and Mei made everything very easy to understand. when she was unsure how to answer one of my questions she said she would find out and email me later. Mei is very thorough with her lessons. I really appreciate her :)

I have had a few lessons with Mei and she is always really great. I am feeling more comfortable trying to speak Japanese with Mei and she always is patient with me while i try to think of how to say something. Mei also works from the text book i use which is very helpful :) I highly recommend Mei as a teacher!

Mei is very encouraging and helpful. The lesson we used was from a work book but Mei offered more examples that gave better understanding. Mei is a great teacher and i look forward to our lessons :)

Just had my 1st lesson with Mei sensei. She put in effort to introduce topics to talk about but as my current level of Japanese speaking is weak, there's still many pauses in between and it became difficult with the teacher talking more. However it's still insightful as she try her best to accommodate my level by explaining using simple Japanese on the topic of different dialects in Japan. I really appreciate that she tried her best to make the lesson work out even if the condition wasn't ideal. Thank you Mei sensei.

Mei is great! I was having technical troubles and Mei gave me 10 extra minutes at the end of the lesson to make up for the time I had missed. Mei is a very helpful teacher and adjusts the lesson to the questions you have. 5stars!
