Umi-sensei is a skilled teacher and is fun to talk to! I'm a beginning student and she's very patient about writing down everything I can't understand.

Umi-sensei is fun to talk with and patient about writing every single word and phrase down that you don't know. I highly recommend her lessons!

I recommend Umi-sensei's teaching highly. She is great about correcting errors in speech. It's a pleasure chatting with her, even if you are a beginner like I am.

I like Umi-sensei's lessons because they are a good combination of grammar learning and casual Japanese talking.

Umi-sensei always encourages me to speak in Japanese, as she is patient and encouraging throughout the session. Also, she always follows up with a summary of our session plus grammatical points and vocabulary.

Umi-sensei is a good teacher that can explain clearly Japanese grammar and the way to use it with good examples.

I had a wonderful first lesson with Umi! She was easy to talk to, which helped my nerves a lot. I especially appreciated the thorough feedback after the lesson! It's great to know what I should focus on going forward. When I want to work on speaking, I'll happily talk with Umi again!

After each lesson, this tutor always sends me her feedback, containing all of the new vocabulary, grammatical issues that arose during the session, etc. My kanji is still at the beginner level, so this tutor uses hiragana for some of the kanji. Umi-san is an extremely good tutor.

Umi-san is very patient. I appreciate that she uses Japanese all the time and supports my efforts in trying to find the Japanese words to express myself.
This is a very excellent aspect of her teaching method.

Today was our first meeting and introduction. Umi-san was very easy to talk with and kept the conversation flowing. I feel it went very well and did my best to speak in Japanese, despite forgetting a lot of vocabulary. I look forward to future lessons!

Sorry for my lateness today, and thanks for dealing with my tiredness! I'll try to be better about setting my alarm so you don't catch me 5 minutes after waking up in future :)

Very good; hopefully though I'll be able to remember all the new vocab I'll have to learn for the next chapter :)

Great lesson as always, and I feel like I'm gradually gaining a better understanding of Japanese grammar concepts, in spite of my repeated mistakes. :)

I really enjoyed our lesson. I'm not always my best in the morning I'm afraid, and am sometimes still a little tired or incoherent during the lesson. Umi-san however is patient with my mistakes, always gently correcting me and answering any questions I may have, however awkwardly I might put them. All that is much appreciated :)
