About Mika

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 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 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 d ...
