Excellent Sensei

Yuri Sensei is extremely engaging for my 5 year old son. He felt so comfortable with her from day one. She is patient, animated and persistent in her work. She brings educational tools and uses toys in conjunction with play to provide a more natural and fun learning environment for my son. She is able to hone in on my son's strengths and use them to help with his weaknesses. We are looking forward to many more sessions with her.

Thoughtfully prepared lessons!

Yuri is an excellent Japanese instructor. She tailors the session to relevant content that fits my interests and goals. I was able to go to Japan recently with additional vocabulary that helped me get through everyday interactions with much more ease! I look forward to learning more with her. :)

My daughter loves Yuri!

We hired Yuri to tutor our 9-year-old daughter in Japanese, and our daughter couldn't be happier. Yuri arrived on time, and was all ready to teach our daughter. She came very prepared with notebooks and even props for the lesson, which I think is especially good for young students. Yuri is also just really friendly and sweet. My daughter is thrilled with Yuri and what she has learned so far.
