Gahhhhhh, what an epiphany today!!!!! Chika-sensei explained to me what others (tutors/class/freaking textbooks) couldn’t in so many words!! It. Blew. My. Mind. We definitely laughed about it for a good minute or two since I couldn’t believe she made it so simple to understand. It’s only my third (really, only my third?) lesson with sensei and I’ve connected so much of what I’ve learned through my other dry methods of learning Japanese. Thank you for being a tutor Chika-sensei!!!!!!!! Or I think I’d be a grim studious lookin’ student right now. You rock all the socks in the world.

Chika is a great teacher and I totally recommend taking lessons with her, she's probably one of the best Japanese tutors in the platform since she takes the time to understand what works for you and the best approach to maximize your language learning gains.

Chika Sensei's class is wonderful. She assesses your level, and gives you a very personalized lesson. She has many topics to discuss, and guides you step by step in conversational Japanese! If you are nervous, or hesitant, she is so patient and kind and helps you with any doubts. I absolutely recommend Chika Sensei Her class seemed so short, I can't wait to see her next lesson, and to see her Trivia at the end of the class! La clase de Sensei Chika es una de las mejores clases que he tomado en iTalkie. Ella te contacta de antemano para saber tu nivel y prepara la clase de manera muy personalizada, teniendo mucho material para trabajar, y te guía paso a paso en conversación y gramática de la lengua japonesa haciéndote sentir cómoda y quitándote los nervios. Me encanta su clase, por que es firme, pero a la vez dulce y te motiva a seguir adelante. Súper recomiendo a Sensei Chika! No puedo esperar a tener mas lecciones con ella. Ademá, tiene una trivia al final de clase, muy interesante!

Chika-san is amazing!!! I have been taking lessons regularly since February 2022 and not leaving anytime soon! Chika-san is a skilled teacher, conversationalist and such a joyful, intelligent person! Taking a lesson with her will lighten up your day and warm your winter, guaranteed! Her positive energy is heartwarmingly contagious! As she's a an avid learner of foreign languages herself, she's able to quickly detect problem areas and help you out with individual solutions and approaches. We did everything from daily conversations, books, food (she's got a special knack for this one!), travelling, roleplays, complex things like mails and contracts with Japanese companies, kanji, writing (if you thought you knew how hiragana is written correctly, you're in for a surprise!) all the way to sociocultural and philosophical discussions. She's extremely flexible while professional at the same time and always finds joy and fun in whatever you choose to do! You can't go wrong with Chika-san!!!!
