Mika sensei was very professional and helped me understand concepts that I was struggling with. Her organized lesson and practical application motivated me to keep learning and improving. She is definitely an experienced veteran teacher.

I have been working with Mika sensei for two months and I am very impressed with her teaching ability. She purchased the book that I use at her own expense (!) and structures our lessons very well. I have learned so much and continue to improve.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Mika sensei. She spoke Japanese almost the entire time and translated to English when I didn't understand. She was clear on her explanations, and also an enthusiastic teacher.
