Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

My daughter is absolutely LOVING her lessons with Yuriko. We travel often and it is wonderful that my daughter is able to continue her lessons, where ever we are.

I am a native speaker and former school teacher in Japan. Learning is fun-that's my motto. When you achieve your goals, you enjoy a feeling of accomplishment, right? I want to help you to achieve your goals. My lesson starts from finding what students really need to learn. Understanding student is the key to success.

I appreciate you so much! I am thoroughly enjoying learning with you! :)

I had been studying Japanese by myself for two years before booking a lesson with Jinko.
Even after one lesson I learned so many new things and received many helpful and useful tips. She helped me practice my pronunciation and went over some reading exercises with me as well. I would recommend taking lessons with her, she is patient and kind.

こんにちわ、先生。

I will try to make this short because there is so many good things to say about Jinko Sensei.

To start, I have had an interest in Japanese since I was little, stemming from anime and being Asian myself, I really wanted to actually commit to truly learning the language and becoming fluent.

Since I began, I have improved so much. My biggest problem was reading, but also not being afraid to just speak in Japanese, and slowly I have become more comfortable, and have broken my stigma of trying to speak in Japanese (just don't be afraid of making a mistake).

The best thing is that Jinko Sensei teaches what is practical. She is a very personable, great and amazing person! What more could you ask for from a teacher if you are really trying to learn Japanese. I cannot recommend her enough.

Anyways, I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy our classes together! If you need help reaching your Japanese goals, this is the teacher for you!

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.

During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a president of SUNY Albany Japanese Student Association and also worked as a TA for Japanese 101 classes, and I absolutely love to teach languages! I understand it is often very hard to find a language tutor outside of the spoken community, and I hope to provide you with the opportunity to be exposed to authentic media sources to acquire natural fluency. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Hikaru

はじめまして & thank you for taking a moment to check out my profile! I'm originally from Tokyo Japan, and I moved to NY with my family during high school. I've completed Master's degrees in Language Education & Communication, and Bachelor's Degrees in Music Performance and Political Science.

I just had my second lesson with Hikaru and I ask so many questions all the time and am just a lot as a person, but she's so patient and is really willing to answer all of my questions and go over absolutely whatever. She's also very good at explaining things and can explain the grammar side to me (I'm a big grammar proponent), which is an absolute blessing. Lessons fly by and I absolutely cannot wait for my next one.

Also, she's been helping me find resources that I can use to work on my Japanese outside of lessons. I know that some people won't do that because they want you to buy more lessons, but Hikaru genuinely just wants to help me learn both the language and the culture.
