Yasushi-san reads it back once I’ve read it so I can listen to the correct pronunciation and phrasing. I ask questions about the vocabulary or we discuss other topics such as Japanese food, customs of Japan, and the historical significance of cities. Some of the articles I’ve read in Japanese have been about stolen bees, a plant explosion, and an avalanche. It has been a wonderful learning experience and I recommend Yasushi-san to anyone interested in supplemental studies in math or Japanese.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
There was a good deal of interaction which I was comfortable with. I think we can all remember classes where the teacher stood and lectured for the whole period - Malone is not like that. We discussed the concepts of line, shapes, movement, etc. All in all this was the most enjoyable and educational art class I have ever taken. I look forward future classes. He has put a charge in me that had been lacking for years. I would recommend Malone to anyone who wants to be a better artist.
