Of course this is not to say that Yumiko-sensei is harsh or intimidating; on the contrary she's extremely nice and friendly, and caring about her students' progress, so improving my Japanese has been fun rather than a chore. Reading other reviews of her, it seems she has been just as helpful to students of all levels of Japanese study. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning or improving their Japanese.

Akari-san is an excellent Japanese tutor! Not only is she very flexible in terms of meeting times but she is also a very skilled Japanese tutor. She took a very dense Japanese text about the call market in Japan (Money Market) and together, we went sentence by sentence dissecting not only the kanji (both meaning and readings) but the overall reading comprehension by letting me re-summarize words or phrases with my own Japanese vocabulary.

I am Japanese and my husband is American. But, my parents take care of her every day after school. I have been trying to find a Japanese tutor who was American, but could teach Japanese just like a native speaker. Kristin is THAT teacher. My daughter is very comfortable with Kristin because she is a young person, full of life, enthusiastic about Japanese and can explain to my daughter in English what she does not understand. This is HUGE!
