If you're looking for an amazing Japanese language tutor, look no further than Kobayashi sensei! She has been an absolute game-changer for my Japanese learning journey. She is incredibly patient and understanding, especially for beginners like myself. No matter how many questions I throw her way, she always takes the time to answer them thoroughly and with a smile. I highly recommend to anyone interested in learning Japanese, regardless of your experience level. Her patience, knowledge, and enthusiasm make her an exceptional tutor. You won't be disappointed!

I was very anxious to try a lesson with a real live human and worried about stumbling over my words, but Kana made me very comfortable and was helpful when I was unsure of a word or phrase, and was happy to repeat herself if I asked. If you need the extra push to go ahead and schedule a trial like I did, know that she is a very good teacher to choose!

It is always a big challenge to keep a child (turning 5) sit down and listen to her teacher in a class. As Kana is qualified in early childhood education and has extensive experiences with children, she dealt with my daughter very well. She is a gentle, supportive and lovely teacher. Well recommended especially for young children. Thank you, Kana

Kana gave me great lesson in reading and practicing numbers in Kanji, and utilizing numbers in different scenarios in Japan. She is very patient and provides all the necessary feedback you need for mastery.
