Mr. K provides absolutely outstanding Japanese tutoring service at all levels. Beginners can expect very detailed and step-by-step instructions on how to pronounce the basic units that make up the Japanese language. Intermediate and advanced students will enjoy an immersion in Mr. K's native culture and language during their lessons. Mr. K is always patient and considerate. As a non-native speaker of the English language, Mr. K has an impressive command of English, which enables him to understand English speakers' commonly encountered problems. His method helps his students grasp the peculiarities of Japanese. He is highly attuned to potential pitfalls for beginner learners and able to explain and clarify confusing concepts with ease. I wholeheartedly give Mr. K my highest recommendation to learners at all levels. If you are looking for a Japanese tutor, you owe it to yourself to try out Mr. K's service.

"Japan's secret teller"
I have recently moved to San Francisco, CA from Tokyo, Japan. I was born and raised in Tokyo. When I was 21 years old, I had a chance to live in Santa Monica, CA for 2 years as a student. After I spent 30 years in Japan, I had to decide to come back for the big reason. I'm very patient and work very hard in any kind of situation for people. Please, try a Japanese lesson for fun. I will be looking forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you.... ... More

I respect feedback from my students and their family on their expe ... More

Rusty has been great for my son. He is flexible when we run into scheduling difficulties. He is willing to put in extra time when a test is coming up. My son's grade in pre-calc has gone up since starting his sessions with Rusty.

"Tutor of Mathematics and Computer Science"
Mathematical concepts have always come easy to me. It is a talent I was born with and enjoyed every subject from arithmetic, to geometry and trig, algebra and calculus, linear algebra and real analysis. It was an easy transition to computer science. My career took me from database programming to web development and continues to evolve.
I have found that the most common problem a student has with any higher mathematical concept is a building block that was missing or overlooked. My responsibi... ... More
