Azumi is very well-prepared and well-trained in teaching Japanese. She gauges my skill level very accurately, and can anticipate common mistakes very well. To me, these are signs of having lots of experience. Her bright personality, broad life experiences and great sense of humor also make the lessons very relatable and enjoyable. All this makes it well worth my while to make the somewhat long drive to get tutored by her. I hope this review helps, and good luck to future Japanese students!
I really liked my first lesson. I came in with a list of questions. She listened very carefully and answered all the questions. When she felt I understood she then got right into the lessons. She was very good at stopping and explaining things I had trouble with and gave me some really good "gotcha's" to look out for. I am very happy with the structure a tutor can provide and it gives me greater confidence that I can learn well in a much shorter time than doing it by myself.
Azumi is friendly and professional, and has a great grasp of English and Japanese. She challenges me, but is understanding and makes language learning feel relatively easy. She is very responsive to text and email.
Azumi is a professional, well-informed teacher who makes learning fun. One meeting with her, and my son was on fire to work on his Japanese. He was working on his characters even during our vacation. Azumi capitalizes on the students' interests and makes fun suggestions that keep them interested and engaged.
I just had my first session with Azumi so things are still very early. What I really like already is her enthusiasm to teach but she's also exacting about making sure you stay on top of the fundamentals being as I'm returning to studying Japanese after an absence. Looking forward to more!
Konbanwa! Azumi is very friendly and energetic; she increases your enthusiasm for learning Japanese. We practiced conversation and a few phrases and principles in a very memorable way. I look forward to the next lesson!
I am very impressed with Azumi. She is so energetic and passionate about the Japanese language. Her method of teaching is very practical and perfect for my needs in learning Japanese. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Azumi!!!
We love Azumi-Sensei! She is very warm and friendly and so patient and sweet with the boys. She is always upbeat and enthusiastic. She helps the boys with their Japanese homework: kanji, and katakana, and writing sentences with their kanji. They love working with her, and her gentle humor takes most of the drudgery out of doing homework. I love that she is there to help make sure they understand their work, as I don't know any Japanese at all.
Azumi is patient and very nice. A great tutor. She is prompt and professional. It was a great experience.
Azumi-sensei is great! Despite my spotty knowledge of Japanese we very easily picked out a great spot to get started. You can tell she really wants to help you succeed. Enjoyed the lesson thoroughly. Will definitely be contacting her again. Arigatou!
SOOOO Good. Amazing Tutor. Very competent and highly intelligent. Wonderful personality and friendly attitude. Very good at explaining things and helping you to understand.
Professional, prompt, prepared, pleasant, polite, patient, perfect teaching voice and manners. Only distraction for not giving her 5 stars is the coffee house environment. Ms. Azumi has the best teaching qualities. Thank you!
Wow Azumi is awesome! She is brilliantly prepared for every lesson and even after one hour I feel like I have learned so much! She is a real professional and she is perfect at her job. At the same time, I never get bored, not even for a second. I look forward to every lesson with great excitement. What amazed me the most is that she immediately adapted to my level of Japanese which is quite complicated, as I haven't got much structure, just things I picked up from my friends and my travels in Japan. So it was incredible how quickly she recognized what I needed to be taught and how to go about it. If you're looking for a Japanese teacher in L.A. you won't find a better one!
Azumi-san is excellent! She's very perceptive; she quickly learns about my proficiency and teaches accordingly. She's extremely well organized. There's never a moment where she's scrambling about what to move on to next. The time flies by, and I feel like I've learned a lot afterwards. She's native Japanese, and provides a lot of useful info about how things really work in Japan (i.e., language and culture). It's really fun! She checks her email frequently and provides help over email between lessons. She's also very nice and has a great sense of humor. I couldn't give her a stronger review.
Azumi is enthusiastic & very encouraging. She is easy to talk to, and facilitates conversation very well. She is organized & has a great personality that works very well with tutoring. I would highly recommend her for Japanese students of all levels.
Azumi is an excellent tutor, extremely patient and makes learning Japanese engaging and fun. I have learned a lot already in just a few lessons. I highly recommend her for students just starting out as well as intermediate students looking to just brush up.
I am new to learning Japanese and was a little nervous at first. Azumi showed me that with practice I can do this! She was very organized and had plenty of visual aids. She was friendly and offered encouragement throughout my lesson, even if I made a mistake. She also helped me to get my pronunciation right. I'm looking forward to more lessons.
