Umi Sensei is very good at explaining difficult grammar points. I paused my Japanese study for a while so today's lesson was fun and informative. I'll surely book for your next lessons. ありがとうございました。

I'm always grateful for lessons with Umi-sensei. She always phrases things in a way that I can understand. The topics are a little hard for me to talk about fluently in Japanese, but I think it's extremely useful practice to help me push my level up little-by-little. As always, I'm very thankful for the detailed feedback she leaves me to help me review before the next lesson.

I had a great lesson with Umi-sensei. She is very friendly, and she pointed out several words that I did not know and/or used incorrectly. I hope to take more of her lessons again in the future.

I had another wonderful lesson with Umi-sensei. She's always patient with me trying to express myself, and more importantly, the feedback after each session is extremely helpful. I'm very grateful for the notes she gives me.

This was my first lesson with Umi. I want to practice conversational Japanese to force myself to use vocabulary and grammar that I'm studying. Umi guided conversation and was very patient with me. She asked what I want from lessons with her and catered to my needs. Although she speaks and understands English, Umi explained everything in Japanese for me at my level, which is very good practice. She is very easy to talk to and gives great followup feedback as well. I will take more lessons with her in the future! Thanks Umi :)

Umi's continual use of Japanese was very helpful -- ie, she did not switch to English -- which forced me to continue to try to speak in Japanese. This is exactly what I need, even though it isn't easy! Umi is persistent, yet encouraging.

Umi sensei is very friendly and easy to talk to. Materials are given in advance and thorough feedback is given after the lesson.

Umi sensei was gentle and patient as usual. I really enjoyed speaking with her; we shared a lot of topic. Japanese is hard but I got encouraged and motivation from Umi sense

Umi-sensei is always very patient and kind. It's very easy to converse with her about many things. She matches her level to that of the student and lets the student do most of the talking. She always provides very helpful and extensive feedback notes after the lesson. I've found her great for improving my conversational Japanese. Highly recommend for intermediate and above.
