🟨 Casual Conversation Practice for All level -Let's talk freely!
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!

Sakikoさんはいい先生です。さきこさんは とても優しい人で 会話も楽しいです。She also studies and speaks a lot of languages, so she knows about the challenges of learning, maintaining, and balancing languages. She's super patient and she's able to understand what I'm trying to say, and she gives me the most appropriate way to say it based on my current level and goals. She's patient and easy to talk to which helps during the日本語の単語が出てこない時. She also sends you a google sheet with the vocab/grammar points/sentence structures that you went over, which is a really big help! I love that she includes the whole expression such as バランスをとる. I would've never known that would be a toru, I totally thought it would be a suru. Things like that are so helpful, so I appreciate Sakiko-san's attention to these things. Highly recommend!

Wow! I just had my 1st lesson with Sakiko-san, and it was a blast! She understands totally what I'm trying to say and is super supportive. She's so good at grasping what I'm trying to say, and she writes it out and says it for me so that I can know and practice how to say it. She's also super positive and fun to talk to! I got introduced to really useful vocabulary and also reviewed some grammar concepts. This lesson gave me hope of my future dream to do speech therapy with Japanese families who live in the US ♥️

The trial lesson went smoothly and Sakiko sensei was able to direct the conversation despite me being nervous. I like how organized she is with the lesson plan and feedback. I’m looking forward to more sessions.
