Sayaka is always incredibly fun to wirk with. She is very kind and very knowledgeable. It?s great to work through the book with a native speaker to coach me , practice conversation with, and even learn some more colloquial aspects of the language.

This is my third consecutive week learning Nihingo. I went from simple greetings to building sentences . Who knew Japanese would be so addicting! Mrs. Sayaka is really patient & goes out of her ways to help. She?s knowledgeable about Japan ,the culture , traditions , and anime ! Mrs. Sayaka has helped expand my Japanese in such a short amount of time . Every lesson is full is educational, fun and full of laughs. As your student I look forward to mastering nihingo . Arigato Sayaka sensei.

My daughter and her friend enjoy having classes with Sayaka. She is knowledgeable and kind with teenagers:) She also taught them about the culture and Japaneese food. Overall the kids are very happy with their class and each week they are learning fun exciting stuff!

Sayaka helped me understand the grammar and point out important things in casual conversation to watch out for. She is patient and encouraging and is open to changing directions when going through lessons when I need more clarification on other things.

2nd lesson with Sayaka San, and she has made it so much fun! She is teaching me something new every lesson and I feel like I'm really learning. I look forward to our lessons every week.

I?ve had two lessons with Sayaka so far and she is amazing! Very sweet and funny, clear and concise. After both lessons I felt super confident with what we went over in the Genki textbook. I was studying independently before but having Sayaka around has been a huge help. I wish I found her sooner!
