Hands down, my favorite thing about KCP is the teachers and staff. The teachers made the whole experience enjoyable. I hate paying for teachers who don’t teach well. At KCP, every single teacher who taught my classes was great. It wasn’t just about getting through today’s lesson; they made sure everyone understood the material. Tanaka, Michiko, and Ryuhei were always in the office to help anyone. Their kindness will not be forgotten.
