I had her for Japanese 1 during freshman year. Although she did give me a hard time (and was not one of her favorites by ANY means), I could tell that she really wanted her students to succeed. This included working with students who struggled by organizing times to come in each cycle during their breaks. Very few teachers make an effort to initiate meetings with students bc usually students are expected to take the initiative when it comes to grades. Also really knew her stuff.

Asato Sensei is one of the best teachers I have ever had!!! She introduced my to Japanese 1 in a way that was insightful, and full of clarity. Asato has a profound understanding for the traditional Japanese teacher. Maybe she likes mejQuery17205198491045739502_1398294675058?

Asato sensei teaches with an open approchable personality that makes learning in her class fun and enjoyable. Despite being in her favorite or least favorite class, there will always be humor in most classes with a lesson taught that you can grasp.

She's a great at teaching Japanese but she needs to learn to treat her students equally. And there are times when she gets really moody.

She is an okay teacher who likes her job, but is a really tough grader. I got on her bad side from one incident irrelevant to school and she hated me the rest of the year, unwilling to help me.

anyone could learn japanese as long as you have the text. Thats the only thing she does, just read of the textbook and expects you to remember it from that day on.

She does play favorites (I'm not one). She's a good teacher and is willing to answer questions, but I would have a much higher opinion of her if she treated everyone equally.
