I grew up in Japan and moved to Georgia in 2007. Since then, I lived in Florida, moved to San Paulo Brazil, backed to Tokyo Japan, and finally came back to Arizona in 2013.
I?ve been teaching Japanese since 2017, so over 10 years.

I received my certification as a Japanese language teacher from the Human Academy in 2005. I graduated with a degree in English, American literature, and education from Tohoku Gakuin University - also in Sendai, Japan.

Mika was very nice and welcoming in the first lesson. She started off by asking some questions to get to know me and then we eventually got into the lesson. She was very nice about everything and it was a fun lesson.

Hiragana, some katakana, and kanji. We would like continued lesson in September 26, 2020. We would like Trevor to practice and study in the mean time.

I often get really embarrassed struggling with a tutor or a teacher but Mika is very helpful and encouraging and doesn't judge when I struggle. I really appreciate her as a tutor and she's been so helpful!
- Genevieve G. from Bellevue, WA
Mika San taught me introducing myself where I'm from and what I do for a living. What I like is that we get a lot done within the hour we have together and she's also a fast pace teacher which I love. And we practice a lot in my pronunciation of the Japanese language it was fun
- Stygma S. from Portland, OR
Mika can quickly assess level and knows what needs additional review and emphasis. She is good at teaching both speaking and reading Japanese. I highly recommend her as a tutor.
- Aliza A. from Phoenix, AZ
I am a man very new to Japanese and Mika made me feel at ease. She helped me to define reasonable goals and expectations for our classes. She's very professional.
- Jake J. from West Des Moines, IA
I have a busy schedule and I'm not always fully brushed up when it comes to our lessons. Mika Sensee is really patient with me. It's exciting to go to work and practice what I learned with a Japanese Engineer. I always feel like I get it down so much better the week after I have a lesson with her. Studying on my own is okay. But studying with a teacher is so much better.

Mika Sensei is patient, Kind, Friendly, a good communicator and has a deep understanding of the nuances of the language and well versed with traditional and contemporary Japanese Culture. She is extremely effective as a teacher as she tailors the class so as to retain my interest. She helps me build on my strengths and makes sure my mistakes are corrected. Thank you Sensei for being a great teacher, and I hope to improve more under your tutelage.
- Nitin K. from Scottsdale, AZ
It's a lot fun to learn real Japanese, not to say I'm not thankful for textbooks but there is a certain level of nativity you need. Mika sensei explains lessons very well, and, from what I've experienced, knows how to pace her students.
- Christopher M. from Moore, SC
Mika did an excellent job introducing Japanese as an Adult Learner, I look forward to our sessions in the upcoming year. Thank You Mika for making Japanese easy to learn as an Adult Beginner.
- Nancy C. from Bridgeport, CT
I wrote an essay for homework in the past tense. Today, we learned past tense negative and worked on talking about what we did and did not do as children. The lesson went very well!
- Megan S. from Armonk, NY
Mika is patient and encouraging especially when teaching difficult topics. She will move as fast as you want to cover material, so if you are serious about learning and study outside her teachings you can cover a lot of material very quickly!
- Sarah W. from Atlanta, GA
Mika is helping to jog my memory from the language I learned long ago. She also taught me new grammatical concepts and vocabulary in first lesson. She makes learning japanese fun!
- Simona S. from Glendale, AZ
Mika translated a letter for me from Japanese to English. She did an excellent job of translation plus explaining Japanese feelings etc. in the letter. I would expect her to be a caring and outstanding teacher.
- Bette D L. from Phoenix, AZ
I have never had to tutor before, but once I found Mika I knew she was the teacher who was going to help me reach my goals. I want to reach level 2 on my JLPT. I tend to be overly ambitious with the goals I set for myself, but Mika is very understanding and accommodating. She is very open to discussing her culture and customs, which makes our after session discussions, so much more pleasant. She doesn't treat you like just another student, she is truly an amazing teacher and I have so much respect towards her. If you want to learn Japanese, I can't recommend Mika enough!
- Dominique K. from Avondale, AZ
While considering various conjugations of verbs, I sometimes forget things that we've been over. Mika is very patient and helps me remember. Very friendly and helpful!
- Caleb C. from Vancouver, WA
Mika san makes you feel relaxed and gives you that added confidence needed to learn a language well. Japanese is difficult, but I am sure that anybody with the drive and Mika's help can successfully learn it. Very professional.
- Todd S. from Peoria, AZ
Mika is a wonderful, encouraging teacher. She genuinely wants her students to succeed, and she provides both a framework for learning Japanese and a warm, encouraging atmosphere. I feel very fortunate to have found a teacher as talented as Mika.
