From the children’s mother to teacher Kaoru:
I was impressed by the sheer amount of effort I could tell you put into every lesson: the drawings you did by hand, the breadth of styles the lessons were carried out with (games, crafts, music, stickers, hands-on chopstick lessons, etc) was REALLY impressive! I can tell that you put a lot of work into each lesson to personalize it, keep it fresh, and of course teach the content very effectively. I was constantly blown away by how much of the lesson you organized yourself, rather than just relying on the textbook. Thank you for all the many, many hours you spent with William and Ella so that their time in Japan is something they will never ever forget. 🙂
To Japanese teacher Mayu:
What a pleasure and joy it was leaving my two children in your very capable hands every morning during our time in Japan. Coming into UK Fields and being greeted by your smiling face was the best way to start off the day. You are obviously very much at home with children and teaching language, and the children were both very comfortable with you.
Kaoru San is a very good teacher, she is very patient and clear. Her teaching is really good because I was able to make progress fast and to communicate really quickly. Also, before I wasn’t able to read hiragana or katakana, and now I can read all hiragana and a lot of katakana. She is also very accommodating with schedules. I really recommend her class! – JR
I have been attending UKfields for Japanese lessons for about 2 months now and highly recommend their classes! Patience is her virtue for a slow poke like me. – PM
I would rate this school as one of the best ‘Japanese language’ training school in Tokyo, Japan. I have been attending their classes since January this year. The infrastructure is simple and functional. The teaching methods and curricula are relevant, especially if you are planning to take JLPT. Above all, the ‘sensei’ aka teacher is super efficient and good at her teaching skills. To my friends and colleagues in Tokyo, I would recommend this school for your Japanese language learning needs. – AV
石田先生には息子ルカが6才から約2年間、ロンドンでピアノを教えていただきました。 レッスンはテクニックから音楽性、音楽理論まで1時間とは思えないほどみっちりとした内容でしたが、息子の集中力を保てる様に常に工夫をしてくださり、そのおかげで基本の姿勢や技術など、かなり速く上達する事ができました。 習い始めて1年目から受け始めたイギリスのグレード試験もグレード1からグレード4まで、1年半の間に全てDistinction(高得点)で合格することができ、石田先生にはとても感謝しております。 とても丁寧で優しい先生ですので、どのレベルの方にもお薦めしたいです。 My son Luca had piano lessons with Kaoru in London for 2 years. She taught technique, musicality, music theory; every hour lesson was a deep dive, very intensive. She always found ways to help my son focus and he enjoyed her lessons. He managed to learn basic posture and technique very quickly with her method. After one year Luca started the ABRSM piano grade exams, which he passed with high distinction from grade 1 to 4 in less than 18 months. We are very grateful to Kaoru; she is very kind, patient and we highly recommend her at any level. – M
