This is a review of my Brazilian student. She has taken my lessons 10 times.

'Koyuki sensei is very supportive and always tries her best to help her students to achieve their goals. Thanks to Koyuki sensei, I've become more confident with my conversation skills in Japanese. She is also helping me to improve my vocabulary and grammar skills by working on exercises based on JPLT. :)'


This is a review of my American student. She has taken my lessons 15 times.

'Koyuki sensei has taught Japanese for many years and her skills and expertise allows her to convey difficult grammar points to learners in an interesting and fun way that makes learning from her an excellent experience. Her lessons are informative and helpful and I learn a lot each time I take a lesson from her.'



This is a review of my German student. She has taken my lessons 11 times.

小雪先生 is a very enthusiastic and patient teacher. We are doing a lot of pair work excercises and role plays like they would happen in daily Japanese conversations. 小雪先生 teaches me new, interesting words which are very useable. She always supports me when I want to express myself in a difficult way. We often laugh as well and I think learning and laughing at the same time is a very good thing when someone is learning a language. Since she is using google documents for the lesson it is very comfortable to print it out and review the lesson. Every lesson with小雪先生 is a present for me. 小雪先生に合ってよかったです。 たくさんの文法と単語を教えてくださってありがとうございました。 いつも小雪先生と話すとうれしくなります。 小雪先生は私の特別な先生だから毎レッスンを楽しみにしています。 心から感謝しています。
