Hello. I’m a landed immigrant from Japan. I’ve studied how to teach at university in Japan. I’ve been teaching Japanese since 2003. I’m kind, friendly and patient.
I had my lessons with her for a little over 2 and a half year until I have to relocate out of town due to work some five years ago. The format was one on one during that time and she was very kind and patience and was very adaptive to your needs in terms of lesson structure. When I moved out of town she even offered to have Skype lesson with me but unfortunately it just didn't work out due to my work hour changes. I would totally recommend this tutor if you are interested in starting/continuing your Japanese study.
I had Taeko sensei as my Japanese tutor for well over a year. What I like is that she is very well prepared in advance; I love her textbook Ganbatte!; she prepares worksheets; she gives homework; she modifies and adapts the lessons to my level (I'm a beginner); speaks mostly in Japanese slow enough, and will repeat or paraphrase when needed; she brings different materiel to supplement the lessons, such as games, Japanese objects, calendars, etc; she writes all the notes for me such as vocabulary, key sentences, kanji, grammar points; the setting is very quiet and private (in her own dining room), and she always offers a nice pot of tea. But must importantly, she is very friendly and super easy to work with. You'll like her too.
Taeko is gracious, enthusiastic and I loved the sessions. It really helped me to be prepared for my travels in Japan. She serves tea with the lesson. She’s very good.
Taeko is a patient and motivated teacher- happy to answer questions, and rewards curiosity and vigor. Highly recommended!
Very committed and dedicated teacher, Taeko sensei always prepare her classes ahead of time and will teach you exactly what you need cording to your level and reason you want to learn, she always welcome me with a very positive atitude and a delicious cup of macha tea. I recommend rather you are a Japanese student with lots of experience or if you are just a beginner. Thanks to her now I feel confident enough to go on my journey Japan and keep learning while living there
