Over the past few years, I have managed to sustain and improve my Japanese language skills and I credit much of this to the support and commitment of Auckland Japanese Tutor Ayana. Each student has different goals and will learn at different paces. Ayana is mindful of this, showing patience, and respect and aligning the teaching sessions to best support the students. I believe that Ayana's experience living, studying, and working in another country is reflected in how she engages with students and develops the teaching material. This differs from Japanese language programs offered elsewhere and I believe it contributes to student learning outcomes. Anyone serious about learning Japanese should consider Auckland Japanese Tutor.

I have studied with Ayana sensei since 2016 and she is a wonderful teacher. She has helped me prepare well for JLPT lessons as well as travelling to Japan in the future and I highly recommend choosing her as your Japanese tutor

I really enjoyed all her lessons as I find them to be fascinating and fun. I have learned or experienced a lot of new great things. I find Ayana to be very patient, supportive and knowledgeable. I would like to keep taking Japanese lessons from her.

When my daughter indicated that she wanted to learn Japanese language, I asked her to google tutors. She found a number of them and we checked each one. We both felt that Ayana would be a good one to try and learn from. It turned out that she's great! She's very patient and adjusts to the level of the student, very professional and structured. It's almost a year since my daughter started her lessons with Ayana and she enjoys them very much. Highly recommended!
Have been taking Japanese lessons with Ayana-sensei since October 2020, and she is an amazing teacher. She is very friendly and helpful, and her lessons style is very structured to my current learning progress and needs, which has allowed it very easy to follow and learn. I have gone from very basic Japanese to passing the JLPT N4 exam, and preparing for N3 within this time. I was also able to land an internal transfer to work in Japan in my current company, and with her teachings am able to go while feeling confident in myself. Would highly recommend her if you are planning to learn Japanese, as she does well not only in teaching the theory/grammar, but also a healthy focus on speaking/conversations.

I enjoy the weekly Japanese classes very much. Apart from grammar, I can also learn nouns and verbs that I encounter in life. These words may not be learned in textbooks. Also, I appreciate the patience of teacher on my slow learning progress during the class.

I have been a student of Ayana for 1.5 years and have gained a lot of knowledge in that time. Ayana is very flexiable and tailors the lesson to you and your goals; I was able to pass my next JLPT exam with her personalised lessons. Highly recommend!!

I have been a student of Ayana's for three years now and can honestly say that if it weren't for her lessons, I wouldn’t have reached my current level of Japanese, or been able to maintain my Japanese in my adult life. Ayana is flexible and willing to change lesson plans on short notice to suit my needs, interests, and time commitments. She is a very positive teacher and I always feel excited to start a class with her. She is also very good at taking each student's individual goals with Japanese into account in her lesson plans. Thanks to Ayana, I have now reached a conversational level of Japanese and am going to take a working-holiday in Japan this April. I feel I will be able to take full advantage of this experience because of the strong foundation in Japanese that Ayana has given me. If you are interested in starting to study Japanese or are looking for a push to reach the next level in your Japanese studies, I could not recommend Ayana more.

I studied Japanese with Ayana-sensei for 3 years and it was such a valuable and enjoyable time. She is kind and helpful, and I felt my language skills improving significantly. Her teaching style is very easy to follow and to study with. I am grateful to have met her and to have studied with her.
