Friendly, supportive, accommodating, pleasant to talk to. If these are what you're looking for in a Japanese teacher, then Naoya-san is the teacher for you. I've taken Naoya-san's lessons for the past several weeks, and he is always flexible as to the contents and style of teaching and happy to answer language questions from a Japanese language teacher and a native speaker's perspective. Every lesson is always something I look forward to each week.

For our most recent lesson, we had a discussion about clothing and fashion. I was surprised to see some similarities between Japan and America with this, and even between me and Naoya Sensei. As always, he speaks at a level I can understand too, and our conversations always go quite well.

Naoya continues to be an amazing teacher! He provides a lot of good opportunities for language practice and conversation along with being very good about teaching new grammar or phrases to use. He's always encouraging and lets you try first before assisting to see what you may need help with. Highly recommended!
