I took four beginners lessons with Tomomi leading up to my honeymoon in Japan. I had been self-studying Japanese for about 1.5 years, but had never taken a lesson or done much speech practice. Tomomi makes the lessons really fun and approachable! She speaks slowly and clearly, and anything you miss she writes down on a whiteboard to deconstruct. Her english is also excellent, which is great for beginners who may need a lot of explanation or have detailed questions. And also, the fact that she is based in the US makes it easy to find a convenient time slot for the lesson. After each lesson she sends over a detailed review sheet with everything that you practiced, so it's easy to integrate what you've learned into flashcards or other review. I'd highly recommend her to anybody who is newer to Japanese and looking for a solid introduction to the language.

Tomomi-sensei provides clear material and explanations. I'm not just learning onomatopoeia but also casual speech through manga. She also gives feedback after the lesson. Thank you, sensei!

We're reading a very fun manga together. While this lesson is for onomatopoeia, we're also getting into a lot of casual Japanese. Thank you!

Tomomi is great personal tutor for mental math using Japanese abacus. My daughter is 5years old already can do mental math for addition and substruction up to 3digit and trying memorise multiplication already !! She feel confidence and love to study . I strongly recommended take her lesson for your kids !

A little more challenging today, but I'm learning some useful new words. I think 30 minutes is a perfect amount of time to be exposed to new content without being overloaded.

Tomomi was very friendly and helpful in figuring out what would be the best path to take with my language learning. Her English is very good so communication was easy and clear. I look forward to starting my Japanese lessons this week!

Had an excellent first lesson. Tomomi-sensei was encouraging and provided a challenge without going way beyond my level. Looking forward to more lessons in the future!

Absolutely fascinating lesson, and so happy we found her. My daughter was in the worst mood but tutor was very experienced with kids and she handled my grumpy kid no problem. It was a very good lesson and I was able to learn as well. I think it's perfect if you can practice everyday based on what she teaches you in a lesson, and then meet the tutor once a week or twice a week to show her progress, to see if you are ready to move forward etc. well that's what we are planning to do. 日曜の早朝しかもお友達がお泊まりに来ていてまだ寝ているときにベットから引きずりおろしてのレッスンでした．．．もちろん１０歳の娘は今までに見た事もないくらい不機嫌にて、収集がつかない感じでしたが、先生はとっても気を長く、笑顔と声かけで常に励ましながらやってくれました。本当に恥ずかしかったですが感謝致しました。週１〜２回のペースで先生と、そして毎日頂いた教材でとにかく練習・復習頑張って行こうと思います。子供がどうやって進んで行くか、横で見れるのが親にはとても嬉しいです。

It was a very good lesson about onomatopoeias! It was easy to follow because the material was send beforehand, and was very interesting. Explanations were both in English and Japanese. Plus she's really easy to talk to so don't hesitate to take a lesson with her!
