“Gold has a price but learning is priceless.” Chinese Proverb



“Debbie taught beginning conversational Japanese to me and my son in preparation for our trip last year.  She inspired us with fantastic ideas for travel, unique cultural interests, and practical phrases for getting around.  Our trip was made infinitely better by the lessons we received from Debbie beforehand.  Her love of Japan is infectious, and she sparked our love and curiosity, too.”
“My teens love Debbie’s Japanese lessons and I love hearing my teens speak Japanese! Thank you, Debbie, for ALL you do with our students and inspiring them to learn and grow deeper in Japanese language and culture.”
“Debbie is a wonderful instructor for our son. He loves logging on weekly with Debbie. He is learning so much more than simply going through a workbook. These lessons have been the best thing for our son who is fascinated with the culture and language of Japan. “

“With minimal familiarity of the Japanese language,  I was able to quickly participate in exercises that asked for verbal responses with encouragement from the instructor and my classmates. The class was inspiring.”

"Debbie offers an incredibly thorough and enjoyable experience for learning Japanese. Debbie is always happy to communicate with her students punctually and responsively. She always takes the time to make sure that her students are learning how to pronounce Japanese correctly, as it's a very technical language. She also provides plenty of additional resources to make Japanese easier to learn (via videos, learning exercises, blogs, and other activities)."
Community College Student

"I am amazed at how much better Justen can communicate in Japanese."
"Nathan looked forward to his lessons every week and learned so much each time. I could see his Japanese language progressing after each lesson. He can't wait to restart his lessons when we can!”
“Debbie worked with us to pick a lesson time that would work for my homeschool family. She was always ready to work with my learners when class time approached. She gave positive praise when my learners also attended class prepared.”
"I took Japanese lessons with Ms. Debbie for the spring 2021 semester. Every subject is taught in depth with many resources and feedback. Virtual communication was a little tricky to navigate, though. So far, I have mastered counting, hiragana, and several phrases with Ms. Debbie." Heather-Georgia
“My daughter Sophie has been taking Japanese lessons from Debora and she loves it so much that she told three of her friends that have now also signed up for lessons! We couldn’t be happier about the way she engages our children from across the country and makes the lessons pertinent to things in their own lives. She makes learning fun and teaches them words and phrases that they can actually use to speak to anyone in Japanese. She has even set up supervised online time with a student in a University in Japan so that they can see and talk to somebody that is actually all the way around the world! Sophie looks forward to her lessons with Debora and even her homework that helps her to review what she has learned in her lessons. She loves it and I am so happy that we found someone that could foster my daughters love of the Japanese language and culture! The ONLY downside (kidding) is we now have four fluent Japanese speaking girls and none of the parents know what they are saying!” Heather-Georgia
