« Perfect! Although I have only been doing lessons with Pallavi for roughly 4 - 5 weeks, I recommend anyone to have lessons with her, due to her nature and her teaching ability. She's patient, calm and can guide you through the language at your own pace. She has a very high knowledge of the language and basically has the answer to any question you throw at her. Having her as my teacher gave me a boost to my motivation because it felt good being spoken to in Japanese. I've noticed that in my first lesson, she came in prepared with text books ready for me, so she is very organised. There are good tutors and bad tutors, and Pallavi is one of the good tutors who gives you a good taste of the language. I recommend anyone to Pallavi, whether you're an absolute beginner, beginner, intermediate etc. Thanks for the lessons, Pallavi. Highly appreciated :D »

Pallavi Sensei is very dedicated and passionate teacher. Her knowledge of the Japanese language is above par excellence. She explains most difficult part of the grammar using easy to understand manner. All classes are hosted in most professional manner and she goes above and beyond stipulated time on many occasions to finish the lesson or clarify the issues.

I recommend Pallavi San with 5 star rating.

Pallavi is an excellent tutor. As a teacher, she is patient, understanding and kind. The way Pallavi delivers her teaching is palatable and conducive to a great learning experience! I have been learning from Pallavi for close to 6 months now and the amount I've learnt from her in such a short amount of time astounds me, it is nothing less than a testament to her teaching ability. I would recommend Pallavi to anyone wanting to learn the Japanese language, whether beginner or advanced.

Pallavi is a very dedicated teacher. She has been teaching my daughter Japanese this semester and she is showing considerable improvement. Pallavi works hard to improve understanding and is highly committed to her teaching. I highly recommend her as a tutor.

Pallavi San is definitely a great teacher.
パラビさんは、敬語などビジネスシーンでの日本語も完璧に話すことができます。
私は調査研究の通訳や翻訳を手伝ってもらいましたが、大変スムーズでした。
また一方で日本人が普段使うような自然でカジュアルな表現もよくご存じです。

When I met Pallavi at my workplace in Japan, I was amazed how she spoke Japanese fluently. Her Japanese was more beautiful and accurate than I do (I'm Japanese native). We've never had problems with communicating in Japanese both in private and work setting. I strongly recommend Pallavi if you want to learn Japanese. She's also very good friend of mine. I can guarantee that you will enjoy lessons with her!

Will definitely recommend her!
