This is my second review as of now. I have learned so much from Yuya that I can’t believe how much I have grown in my Japanese speaking skills. Being able to speak in the language I am learning has helped tremendously in my journey. Yuya is great at leading the conversation while helping correct mistakes along the way. Never once have I been scared to try new grammar or vocabulary when talking with Yuya. Every lesson I learn something new and gain practice on what I learned before. I can’t wait to meet with him again. Thank you Yuya!

I recommend lessons from Yuya-sensei, if you want someone who can support your own needs and goals for studying Japanese. 😁 I really enjoy Yuya-sensei’s style of communication. 🥑 And I am grateful for his flexibility to accommodate what I need to ask a question about or wish to talk about each lesson. I feel more confident to express myself the more we talk—!! Today, Yuya-sensei used a ⭕️⭕️ button! Very fun, as I use the same things in my classroom with my students. 😆

Yuya has all the qualities of a great teacher. He is patient, easy-going and supportive and attuned to my level immediately - offering a challenge at times but helping me to feel comfortable throughout. I would highly recommend his style of teaching and conversing to anyone who is feeling nervous about speaking Japanese. With Yuya you'll be in very good hands!

I always enjoy my lessons with Yuya. He is kind, patient, and a joy to talk with. He strikes a great balance between making me work outside my comfort zone and providing assistance as required. He is always supportive and encouraging, and his lessons have made a big difference to my confidence and spoken ability.

As always, Yuya-san’s lesson was very fun, even while he is helping me get through a conceptually difficult novel! I always look forward to our class and am grateful for all the assistance and explanations that are getting me one page closer to my goal :)
