Yumi made the cutest binder for my daughter to keep her learning materials. My daughter loves going to learn from Yumi and always is so happy when she comes home from her session. I highly recommend Yumi as a Japanese tutor for you or your child.
My daughter looks forward to lessons and is learning. Yumi makes learning fun and really works hard to "drill" the knowledge.
Yumi was my Japanese tutor before I left for Japan. Before I met her I had taken some Japanese in university, but if I had not taken lessons from her I know I would have placed much lower on my exams and I would have been uncomfortable talking in Japanese when I arrived in Japan. However, after tutoring for a few months I was much more capable and confident. I was able to join a club that was all Japanese students and place into a higher level Japanese course in the program I was in. She has lessons prepared for all of her students and can start from any level of Japanese knowledge. She's fun to talk to and an interesting person. I highly recommend her.
Yumi matched the pace I needed. In areas where I was ready to move faster, she moved faster, and kept me challenged and progressing at my optimum pace. Whenever I struggled, she matched my pace, giving me extra time to catch up, so that I always understood the material before moving on to a new concept. Because she maximizes the use of the lesson time, she is an excellent value for every hour spent with her. She uses multiple teaching methods within a single lesson, for variety, which kept me concentrating and focused longer than usual. I loved the way she custom-tailored the lessons to meet some very specific needs that I have. She is a master teacher.
