Sawaguchi-san is hard working and always helpful, caring for her students growth going beyond class contents. I definitely recommend her.



Sawaguchi-sensei's lesson is fun and informative. She is very flexible in the topics she teaches. I find that lessons with Sawaguchi-sensei help me become a better communicator in Japanese as she teaches me to differentiate the subtleties and nuance of different words used.



Sawaguchi sensei is a wonderful teacher!! I learn a lot from her during our weekly classes. Not only that -- but she is also fun to chat with and always makes me laugh while learning!! I always look forward to class and can't recommend her enough :)



I've had a few lessons with Sawaguchi-sensei, and she is an amazing tutor! On the first lesson she was able to determine several things I need to work on to improve my Japanese. I am also able to request that we work on certain grammar. She challenges me to the limits of my Japanese understanding, and that's exactly what I need to improve. Highly recommend her!




講師の返事: エリックさん、フィードバックをありがとうございました。少しお話ししただけで、超上級者特有のお悩みがあることと推測できました。「これ以上どうすればいいと言うんだ!?」と叫びたいお気持ちもあるでしょうね。周りの人は、エリックさんの日本語を褒めてくれるばかりでしょう。けれど、日本語の文法やニュアンスの違いなどをその人たちに質問しても、なかなか納得できる答えは得られないかもしれません。エリックさんの貴重な時間と授業料が無駄にならないよう、私も精一杯頑張ります。今のところに満足せず、更に上を目指しましょう。これからどうぞよろしくお願いいたします。



let s continue !

講師の返事: ベンさん、ありがとうございます。 完璧を目指して頑張りましょう。
