Superb tutor. I noticed she charges a bit more than some other tutors on this site, but she is absolutely worth the premium.
Asami-san is excellent at figuring out what level I was at and adapting to meet me there.
Although I`m fairly new, we mostly talk entirely in Japanese. She is very good at figuring out what I am trying to say and sympathetic when talking herself.
Although I am shy when talking Japanese, she is very friendly and good at putting me at ease so I am confident to try.
Often I am very tired by the end of the day and an hour of Japanese is honestly the last thing I feel like doing, but Asami-san always makes it a pleasure and within five minutes of starting I am full of enthusiasm.

Asami is an exceptionally dedicated tutor. She provides tons os extra material beyond the textbook, and is very flexible in adapting the course to individual learning needs.
She also creates a community for students and other people who appreciate the Japanese language and culture.

Asami is a very good teacher and always appreciative of new questions during our lessons. She is good at connecting the course material with Japanese cultures and history. I really like how prepared Asami is for each lesson and how she has tailored handouts on the material to help me to learn Japanese. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Asami.

Asami proved very adept at quickly understanding my pace of learning. She also adapted her teaching style to suit my needs. Although Japanese is a fairly tough language to begin with (for Westerners), Asami`s lessons are always fun whilst retaining an appropriate structure. I would highly recommed Asami to anyone wishing to learn Japanese.

Asami is fantastic, she produces her own sheets and recommends a great textbook, she even walked me to the bookshop to get the book!

I appreciate her dedication aswell, even after a family bereavement she still taught me a lesson on the day.

Asami is an excellent tutor and I feel like in a short space of time I`ve learnt so much!
She explains and teaches everything tailored to your learning style, is incredibly friendly putting you at ease but also very professional.

I can`t recommend her enough, you will learn to the highest standard with Asami.
