Working with Akira has been exceptional. As a native Japanese speaker, with strong English skills, he’s able to explain things grammatically with real life examples. After just the first hour with Akira, I already understand so many things that were unclear after years of exploring the language on my own.Jan 29, 2020VerifiedAkira Komatsu's reply
Thanks for taking my lesson. I appreciate you for being interested in my country's culture and language. Hope you will travel to Japan and have a lot of friends there. Let's keep on learning! Cheers!
Mr. Akira Komatsu caters to the level of your needs. Thirty five years ago I studied abroad in Japan and have not used Japanese all these years. Since COVID-Times, I figure it's time to keep myself occupied other than watching TV. I've had four lessons with Mr. Komatsu and each time, he is patient and caters to my broken Japanese. My focus is to converse and I can see myself slowly getting more comfortable. I started with a 30 minute lesson trial and now I'm continuing with 60 minute lessons. I highly recommend Mr. Kotmatsu if you want to learn Japanese, or simply like me, re-learn it after many year.Nov 2, 2020
Akira is extremely patient and methodical to work with. He took great care to help correct my son’s pronunciation. His laid back approach and positive commentary put my son, who has learning disabilities at ease.Feb 29, 2020VerifiedAkira Komatsu's reply
It is so nice to work with your son and glad to know you both enjoy my lesson. Let's get used to short stories and words with them then make a big picture with pieces of language. I can't wait for the lesson every time. Cheers!
I have been taking beginner level Japanese lessons from Akira for almost three months now. In this time I have increased my ability to speak, read, and compose sentences in Japanese. He brings a good sense of humor to his lessons and is always on-time. He also focuses heavily on pronunciation, which I appreciate, because I feel like I will be understood better by native speakers.Aug 30, 2020
Mr. Komatsu is great with kids! My 8 year old enjoyed his Japanese lessons very much. Unfortunately we had to take a break, but he will be back soon to take his lessons.Aug 30, 2020
