About Mika


Bio

I'm bilingual in Japanese and English. I am qualified to teach both languages. I grew up in Japan and moved to Canton, Georgia in 2007. I received my certification as a Japanese language tutor from the Human Academy in 2005. I graduated with a degree in English, American literature, and education from Tohoku Gakuin University - also in Sendai, Japan.

I know studying a foreign language can be very challenging, but at the same time, it can also be a lot of fun!

I overcame many problems...

I know studying a foreign language can be very challenging, but at the same time, it can also be a lot of fun!

I overcame many problems when I first studied English as a student myself in Japan.

I have taught very advanced students who are currently enrolled at the University of Georgia and Georgia State University, high school students, businessmen in their 50's and children as young as five years old.

I love to teach Japanese and I would welcome the opportunity to help you learn a very beautiful and interesting language with a long and culturally rich background.

I also teach students using Skype - the FREE internet video conferencing service over the internet.

Mika is awesome!

I am a man very new to Japanese and Mika made me feel at ease. She helped me to define reasonable goals and expectations for our classes. She's very professional.

Jake, 1 lesson with Mika

Mika-San is wonderful!

I have a busy schedule and I'm not always fully brushed up when it comes to our lessons. Mika Sensee is really patient with me. It's exciting to go to work and practice what I learned with a Japanese Engineer. I always feel like I get it down so much better the week after I have a lesson with her. Studying on my own is okay. But studying with a teacher is so much better.

Great Teacher

Mika Sensei is patient, Kind, Friendly, a good communicator and has a deep understanding of the nuances of the language and well versed with traditional and contemporary Japanese Culture. She is extremely effective as a teacher as she tailors the class so as to retain my interest. She helps me build on my strengths and makes sure my mistakes are corrected. Thank you Sensei for being a great teacher, and I hope to improve more under your tutelage.

The most fun tutor I've had

It's a lot fun to learn real Japanese, not to say I'm not thankful for textbooks but there is a certain level of nativity you need. Mika sensei explains lessons very well, and, from what I've experienced, knows how to pace her students.

Excellent Introduction to Japanese!

Mika did an excellent job introducing Japanese as an Adult Learner, I look forward to our sessions in the upcoming year. Thank You Mika for making Japanese easy to learn as an Adult Beginner.

Great lesson!

I wrote an essay for homework in the past tense. Today, we learned past tense negative and worked on talking about what we did and did not do as children. The lesson went very well!

Megan, 28 lessons with Mika

Friendly and encouraging

Mika is patient and encouraging especially when teaching difficult topics. She will move as fast as you want to cover material, so if you are serious about learning and study outside her teachings you can cover a lot of material very quickly!

Mika is very patient and knowledgeable!

Mika is helping to jog my memory from the language I learned long ago. She also taught me new grammatical concepts and vocabulary in first lesson. She makes learning japanese fun!

Simona, 19 lessons with Mika

Excellent job

Mika translated a letter for me from Japanese to English. She did an excellent job of translation plus explaining Japanese feelings etc. in the letter. I would expect her to be a caring and outstanding teacher.

Bette D, 1 lesson with Mika

Mika is phenomenal!

I have never had to tutor before, but once I found Mika I knew she was the teacher who was going to help me reach my goals. I want to reach level 2 on my JLPT. I tend to be overly ambitious with the goals I set for myself, but Mika is very understanding and accommodating. She is very open to discussing her culture and customs, which makes our after session discussions, so much more pleasant. She doesn't treat you like just another student, she is truly an amazing teacher and I have so much respect towards her. If you want to learn Japanese, I can't recommend Mika enough!
