"Dear Yas, I would like to personally thank you for your time to come to school and help our students this year.
Speaking is such a difficult and scary prospect for our students, however, they felt comfortable with you and learnt a lot. You have done an exceptional job. The one on one practice time for these students makes the world of difference. They are lucky to have you." (2017)

3. A referral from a top ranking selective high school student's parents:
"6 years ago, we found Yas on the internet, like what we did before, we just wanted to have a try. Surprisingly enough, this "try" lasted many years. My son was a little boy but he is a young man now. Yas is a responsible and passionate teacher/tutor/friend, he tailored a program to suit my son's needs. He not only teaches my son systematically but also small things in daily life via the efficient one to one, face to face at the choice of in person or on internet method.
Yas searched interesting materials, websites, and Japanese community activities for my son to explore and to learn more Japanese culture and tradition. This is very helpful for my son to keep interest and study in Japanese.
Yas is flexible, relaxed, detailed, patient and friendly. He is also strict but encourages, and positive. He frequently gives us feedback on my son's progress and areas need to be improved. We really appreciated. Thanks a lot!" (2017)
