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.

Great trial lesson. Rika sensei is exactly the instructor I was looking for. She's interactive, listens well, and skilled at setting up a structured course tailored to my needs. I'll be booking regular weekly sessions to get my Japanese on track to fluency.
