Yuzo-san makes miracles... He is making me talk in Japanese; sometimes I can't believe it! I know it is a long way towards fluency, but with Yuzo-san, I feel I'm on the right path. Thanks for being an awesome tutor!

Thanks to Yuzo-sensei, I'm really starting to feel like my Japanese is improving. He's always so patient when I'm having an off day or am making a mess of what I'm trying to convey. He always seems to be in a good mood and be truly interested in the lesson. I don't get the sense that he's biding time or bored but that he's truly engaged and interested. It's a nice feeling, and he's a rare breed. Can't say enough good things. I look forward to our lessons every time, and I'm never disappointed.

This was my first lesson of the year and I was really happy that Yuzo Sensei gave me ample exercises on grammar, since I needed a strong foundation in order to move forward in my Japanese study. I have been taking lessons with Yuzo Sensei just under a year and he has helped me improve steadily on grammar, vocabulary, reading and listening. Sensei also gives me weekly homework besides the custom-made lessons. Because of these continuous practices, I was confident enough to take the JLPT N5 test. This year I look forward to working more with Yuzo Sensei in order to move up to N4 level.

ゆうぞう先生 is very patient and kind. He asks you a lot of questions throughout the lesson, gives you time to express yourself and manages to find many topics to talk about. He is an amazing teacher!

Yuzo is so easy to talk to and is full of interesting stories. His English is also incredible, which is so helpful when you don't know how to say something or when the words just wont come out. I had lots of fun last time, very much looking forward to our next lesson!
