Konnichiwa! I was born and raised in Japan. I have a bachelor’s degree in English as a foreign language and English Education. I have a master’s degree in English Linguistics. I have a Japanese license to teach English and a Japanese certificate to teach Japanese as a second language. I enjoyed backpacking in East Asian countries when I was a college student. I also travelled to Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. I studied in Adelaide, South Australia and for six years I lived in Thailand. I worked for schools and educational institutions in Japan, Thailand, and the United States for more than 10 years. I have helped international students learn languages at college in Japan. Now I am teaching Japanese to my little one to be bilingual. After all these adventures and experiences, I realized again how interesting and beautiful the language and culture of Japan are. Currently I am living in Florida where I can enjoy the warm weather and the beaches all year round. I like going to the beach, biking, hiking, camping, reading books, watching movies and sports, listening to music, and spending time with my family and friends. I really like to see students grow when we are studying together.
I am looking forward to meeting you and talking with you about what you like and what your goals are!
