I have been working with Mr. Timothy for about two months and I've made a lot of progress. I have decided to take Japanese independently, in place of Spanish in school, and Mr. Timothy has agreed to be my teacher for the next two years to facilitate that.
The lessons are always really active - he brings in media, other sources, and offers relevant Japanese culture points that go along with the lesson I'm studying. The books he suggested are well written and organized, and he clearly has experience figuring out the proper pace for the course.
I am attempting to finish 3-4 academic years of Japanese in 2 years, and with Mr. Timothy's help, I definitely think this is possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning Japanese.

"Experienced High School Japanese Teacher"
I started my Japan journey in 1990 when I went to Japan to teach English.

After returning to the States in 2001 I taught Japanese for two years at a public elementary school in South Carolina and have been teaching Japanese for the past eleven years at a private high school in Westchester. As a non native teacher of the language and... ... More
Working with Rosemary was a true pleasure. My kids had such a wonderful time learning and developing their art skills with her. Rosemary broke things down for them to make it easy to understand and made sure to incorporate things they'd like in the lessons (Sponge Bob, animals etc.). She took the time to get to know their interests and this made learning techniques much more enjoyable and productive for them. Scheduling lessons was a breeze and I very much appreciated her flexibility. I recommend Rosemary without reservation.
