What others say.

  • This is the best Japanese tutor I have ever had – full of energy, passion, patience, dedication and kindness and giving the best in all classes to ensure all students needs were attended to. A lot of in-class interaction and practice gave me more confidence in Japanese speaking.

  • Fantastic tutor and fantastic course! I look forward to continuing my studies in Japanese 103.

  • An experienced teacher, very patient and very easy to like. The classes allow plenty of time to practise new language skills with colleagues. I am increasingly confident with reading / writing hiragana. Looking forward to Japanese 103.
