Sakiko is a great teacher! She is patient and kind and fun to talk to. She provides a list of the vocab we covered in the lesson so I can review it later. She guides conversation well and there are never any awkward pauses, which was something I was afraid of in a conversation lesson.
Teshima-sensei is lively, passionate, professional, and extremely dedicated! She puts in time and effort to help students make the most of the lesson time through detailed preparation beforehand, and carefully curates each lesson to their needs depending on their language ability. She is patient and adept at explaining concepts in a simple way. I’m extremely fortunate to be learning Japanese under Teshima-sensei and fully recommended her to everyone else!

I've been having lessons with Teshima Sensei for about 4 years now (a few years before italki, when she was teaching professionally). In that time, her lessons have always been entertaining and informative. She's always met the syllabus to be taught and emphasizes verbal interaction as the best way to learn. In my humble opinion, not many people can do teach and make it fun and entertaining, but Teshima-Sensei does this with ease. Highly recommended!

Completed my last lesson with Sakiko san in 2022. Thanks for helping me to complete my N4 lessons before the end of 2022, which was my target when we had our first lesson together a few months ago. Very grateful for this!

The best Japanese teacher I’ve ever had the good fortune to find. Sakiko is amazing in organizing classes at the right pace, each one tailored to where you are and at your level.
She is also a kind, funny, and welcoming conversationalist, it’s a true pleasure each time to talk with Sakiko.
As a busy professional, I had many starts and stops with trying to speak Japanese.
Thanks to Sakiko’s many incredible lessons this year, not only am I having conversations in Japanese, but I’ve also had the great chance to make many new and interesting Japanese friends through my Japanese speaking.
If you are interested in seriously giving Japanese a try, Sakiko is really the best teacher to start with !
