Sho 先生 has really helped me feel more confident in my Japanese. I appreciate his polite corrections and attention to pronunciation. His teaching style and materials approach each lesson from several different angles so that if one way of describing a grammar point isn't "clicking" for you, then another way will. I would highly recommend Sho 先生 to anyone needing a firm and kind teacher who will work with you to strengthen your language weaknesses.

Sho Sensei is a great teacher! I have completed over 20 lessons with him, and it has been a very positive experience. He is a patient, consistent, and skilled teacher. While using only Japanese, he still is able to clearly explain all grammar and vocabulary, in an easily understandable way. His lessons are thorough, with slides for each lesson, even including flashcards, and lesson quizzes to review.

Very good teacher! I've been studying Japanese on Italki since this April and I attend teacher Sho’s lesson regularly every week. Teacher Sho explains grammar and words all by Japanese and I can understand clearly. He also prepares good materials and quiz and online practices as well. He’s also patient and nice. The lessons are well planned and I can learn to the last minute of each lesson. The learning with him is very helpful and pleasant. I do hope I can learn speaking and writing as quickly as I can. I highly recommend Teacher Sho!

With practice I was able to speak smoothly during most of the lesson. I was nervous about speaking during our first lessons, however I’m not longer fearful of making mistakes. Sho sensei doesn’t interrupt during mistakes and instead allows for reflection with simple questions. He’s obviously very experienced.

Sho provided an straight forward structure to follow for our lesson. I didn't feel rushed. Sho provided feedback in an easy going way.

Today we studied a grammar point that seemed very difficult, but at the end I was able to speak it smoothly by the end. Our lessons are always challenging and informative. I can always practice using the slides he sends.
