Mika Comeaux, Teacher

About Sensei Mika

Sensei Mika Comeaux was born and raised in Japan and came to America to attend college and has remained ever since. She and her husband have two children and a hamster. When Sensei Mika’s first child was born, she started a play group to help other Japanese moms raise children in American culture. She organized the group for five years until finally entrusting it to another mom. Sensei Mika was also lucky enough to be an assistant teacher at the Japanese Montessori Children’s House and now at Jams of Portland.

Sensei Mika always finds it fascinating to watch children adapt and excel with amazing skill in their own way, and looks forward to helping them to learn and grow… and also anticipates that she will learn and grow with them!

From Our Parents & Students...

My daughter, Emily, has been learning abacus from Miwako Sensei for a year.  We have been very pleased with the progress she has made in understanding math concepts.  Prior to attending JAMS, Emily was often frustrated doing homework problems for her regular school.  She had difficulty remembering basic math concepts for her age, and often felt like she was not good at it.  After enrolling in JAMS, Emily has not only gained the confidence to persevere with math skills, but has excelled in understanding the concepts for her grade level.  I credit Miwako Sensei’s teaching techniques for abacus use and her expertise in providing individualized instruction, in making the difference in how Emily now approaches math and her success.  We are fortunate to have discovered JAMS, and grateful to Miwako Sensei, who instills discipline and motivation in her pupils.
