About me :

Currently I live in New York. But I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. I have also lived in Singapore for 1 year plus before moving to New York. I have visited many countries as Thailand, England, Denmark, Bahamas...and so on.

I used to be a jazz-dance instructor and choreographer when I was in Japan. I have also performed for musicals, Christmas shows, and other dance performances.

Highly recommended. You can try to self-study Japanese and get pretty far, but the practice really locks in once you work with her. As usual, Junko is a fair, friendly, organized teacher who will, for sure, help you as long as you put in the work. I absolutely suggest her for you if you are trying to learn or improve your nihongo!

I was nervous about continuing because I didn't have enough time to study all of the material, but Junko put me at ease right away as we covered previously reviewed material and introduced some new concepts also! Junko is indeed a wonderful teacher!

No time wasted, you get right to business. It's challenging but not too hard so you aren't discouraged! The teacher is very friendly, you are in a good mood throughout. Work hard and you will learn something and improve your skills without question! If you are passionate about learning Japanese, this becomes a very, very wise investment!
