I have been doing daily lessons with Sori-sensei for a little while now and I recommend it for anyone who wants to take their Japanese to the next level. He offers many different types of lessons and I have been doing a mix of conversation and grammar lessons. Sometimes we go over vocab and expressions that are useful for specific situations. For example, I needed to get my shoes repaired in Tokyo and he helped me figure out what to say to the people at the shop.
We are also going through the Minna No Nihongo intermediate textbook right now to work on grammar. It is good to go through the exercises with someone who can explain in Japanese what is natural to say. He also uses the questions as a way to start conversations so I can practice communicating and using the new expressions that I'm learning.
I have taken lessons with him while I was in the US and while I've been living in Japan and it has been good practice.
I hope you enjoy your lessons with Sori-sensei!

日文說一說,突然你穿插幾句中文, 我聽不懂, 你就勃然大怒.
然後你有這麼玻璃心嗎? 你中文這樣我聽不懂, 不就代表你中文差嗎?還是你要懷疑我中文比你差嗎?
但不論如何, 這件事就是發生了, 也希望讓大家借鑑.
This is the worst paid lesson experience I've ever had!!
I'm paying for the class, not free and you can't even teach?!
What you did? you just got mad because you suddenly mixed some Mandarin vocabulary in a Japanese conversation ?
You said you f****** repeated 3 times and I was still confused, it's my problem?
You especially repeatedly saying it's your first time to hear someone saying that to you,
Who's the Mandarin native speaker? When a Mandarin native speaker can't understand what you say, it just means your Mandarin sucks.
and you got angry because you've got a fragile heart, LMAO.
It's not my problem that your Mandarin is mixed up with some weird accent that I barely understand.
Although he seems to have good comments from others and that's why I wanted to try out this lesson,
but WHAT I EXPERIENCED tonight was terribly awful!
If any words for this 1000 points paid lesson, that would be GFYS.

It was very relaxing to talk with the topics during the class, especially, I was very surprised to receive the quick feedback after class. Thank you.

Sori sensei was very honest - his class isn't the best for my needs, which are mainly reading and the JLPT.
For my level, he recommended me to self-study or study with someone who's comfortable in speaking English.
I will take his classes later on when I am more used to communicating in Japanese and need to practice my oral skills.

I felt very nervous during the class but Sori sensei was able to guide me through the conversation and was able to understand my broken Japanese. Sori sensei's class definitely is challenging for me but in a good way. The feedback at the end of the class was extremely helpful. It helped me realize what I should study and how much I should study for. Thank you Sori Sensei.

It has been my 6th class with Sori sensei and I have to say I like our class setting and atmosphere a lot: I pick conversation topics according to my preference, and during class hour I feel very comfortable asking multiple questions, which get answered in easy-to-understand ways.

I have been taking Sori-sensei's lessons for quite a while now, and am highly satisfied. Sori-sensei exactly understands his student's needs and tailors his lessons accordingly. He also provides very useful feedback that helps you review everything learned during the lesson.

What I like about this class is that when I cannot express myself fully in Japanese, Sori sensei is very good at knowing what I'm trying to say, and then share with me how to express it in the right way. It has been very helpful and fun!

The conversational class with Sori sensei has been very helpful in terms of gaining vocabulary and commonly-used sentence patterns. Each class we pick a theme, and through out discussion Sori sensei corrects my responses and offer more sophisticated word ion. The after-class review provided by sensei is also very useful as the new words and grammars are organised into sentences that could be easily remembered.

Tutor Sori provided me summarized feedback and learning suggestions after the lesson so that I can study Japanese systematically.
Also, Tutor Sori has experience studying abroad. He can understand the difficulties of learning a language and provide tips.
I had a wonderful lesson with him.

I had a free-talk lesson with Sori-san, which was very pleasant and a good exercise for me. He is very encouraging and it's motivating to practice speaking with him. He is very kind and professional. Thank you, Sori-san, for this useful conversation lesson!

Sori sensei is professional, I will study Japanese with him for sure.
