I have completed the trial class and Rika sensei is so professional. She provided me good help to restart my Japanese study. I would definitely enroll in her class upcoming.

I've been taking some lessons with Rika to prepare for my trip to Japan. The lessons were nicely customized around activities I was planning to do, and the study material was helpful for me to practice outside of lessons. I feel a lot better equipped to interact with people when I get there.

Rika was very personable. If you are looking for structure and a qualified teacher with a lot of teaching experience in your Japanese learning journey, then I recommend you try at least one lesson with her.

I'm having a great time reviewing and learning with Rika-Sensei. She has great teaching material and also customizes my lesson to fit my needs. I look forward to more lessons with her!
