I am born and raised in Canada, but have Japanese and Chinese parents. I am currently a university student in Canada studying for my Bachelor of Linguistics. I am proficient in both English and Japanese, speak Mandarin conversationally, and have studied Turkish for a several years. I love learning new languages and have also studied Arabic, Korean, Ukrainian, Hebrew, and Bengali in the past but I have had the most progress in Turkish. I also love cooking and homebrewing my own wines and beer! 僕はカナダ生まれの日本と中国のハーフです!今は大学で言語学を学んでいます。僕は日本語と英語の両方が話せます。中国語はペラペラではないですが会話はできます!僕は言語を学ぶのが大好きで色々な国の言語を勉強して来ました。過去に勉強した言語はアラビヤ語、韓国語、ウクライナ語、ヘブライ語、ベンガル語。一番上手になったのがトルコ語です!

Hugh is incredibly friendly, perceptive, and intelligent. I have found he is able to customize the lesson to your needs effortlessly and with great skill, no matter how unconventional they might be. And he does so with clarity and a great sense of organization. He is truly bilingual in Japanese and English, which means you can communicate with true nuance in both languages. I think Hugh is terrific to work with, and I'm sure you will feel the same.

Enjoyed today’s lesson. It was comfortable and informative; I learn so much more having a human to talk to as opposed to an app. It had a good level of difficulty and it was catered toward the day-to-day conversations I would have. I also had all of my questions answered (yay).

Hugh-san specifically prepared today’s lesson for my learning needs- today we learned a lot of sentences that don’t come up in textbooks. By doing sentence translations, I am forced to think about what I would say in everyday situations. Thanks a lot for the effort you put into (and before) our classes! I would highly recommend Hugh as a teacher

We covered more ground expanding vocab and phrases for small talk and introduction scenarios. Always a pleasure working with Hugh San. Great teacher and willing to help in whatever capacity you need. どうもありがとうございます

Another wonderful lesson with Hugh San! Expanded more on vocabulary and phrases and numbers. All very helpful. Such a delight working and growing more confidence with my very beginner Japanese. 10/10!

Another great lesson with Hugh San! Today was a big review day to see what I could remember from our previous lessons as well as practice some basic back and forth phrases in Japanese. Exactly what I need before my upcoming trip to Japan. Highly recommend Hugh San whenever he's available for a lesson!
