Patient, Enthusiastic, Well Organized and Systematic

Mamiko has been teaching my daughter Japanese since April 2017. My daughter can now read and write Japanese and speak in full sentences. Mamiko has been wonderful at explaining and making all the lessons fun and interesting. She is patient, consistent, reliable, thoughtful, flexible and organized. Her ability to teach Japanese is measured by how well my daughter is progressing. My daughter's interest in Japan, Japanese culture and language peaked around the time we found Mamiko. Mamiko is not only teaching a language, but she is teaching a culture, the Japanese way, of being patient, of being thoughtful and kind. She is teaching the art of writing. I am very pleased with Mamiko and happy we found such a gem of a teacher. Thank you.

Mamiko is a kind and attentive teacher. She balances our specific situational needs with her prepared lesson plan

Mamiko is teaching us conversational Japanese to assist us show respect to our Japanese customers. I appreciate her ability to react to our requests while also instructing us on points we didn't think of. Her understanding of cultural sensitivities is great.

Very helpful!

I have been working independently with the Genki textbook series with Mamiko's help. She has had useful supplemental exercises and always knows just the assignment to add to push me to the next level.

Very Impressed

I have five children, and have employed several tutors throughout the years. Mamiko is tutoring my daughter in a college Japanese I class. I am extremely pleased with how Mamiko approaches each lesson, and how prepared she is. It is like a mini class. Each time, she is ready to teach, not just go over whatever was covered in class. She shows up with flash cards ready to go, and a lesson plan in place. It is one thing to know your subject; knowing how to teach is another skill altogether. Clearly, Mamiko understands teaching! It's not a free ride for my daughter, either. Mamiko makes her work, but she is super sweet, so it is a pleasant experience. My daughter is very happy working with Mamiko, feels more confident, and is comfortable working with her. Mamiko has also given my daughter tips on studying, helped her identify which parts of each chapter are most important and where she should spend her time, and has even given her tips on dealing with college professors, and success at this level. My daughter is a first semester college student, and timid in new situations, so this has been especially helpful. I'd also like to mention that Mamiko is very easy to reach, and responds immediately to emails, texts, or phone calls. She is very flexible, and willing to go out of her way to accommodate the student. I really cannot say enough good things. She is just a delightful lady, and a very dedicated teacher.

Terrific Tutor and Person

Mamiko is terrific, she is personable, accommodating, and knows how to communicate effectively. She has improved my daughter's understanding of the Japanese language as well as her test scores. My daughter is taking Japanese II and currently has an A in the class. She actually looks forward to their tutoring time together. I even hear occasional laughter coming from the room. Mamiko has a way to keep it light yet effective. I highly recommend her!

Great tutor.

Mamiko U. is an excellent Japanese tutor. I would like to commend you for a job well done. My son is more confident in writing, speaking and reading the Japanese language. Thank you for uplifting his spirit and helping him in every steps of way until he reached his success in learning a new culture. I would highly recommend your services and expertise to many others.
