Hello! My name is Ruriko and I am from Japan. I have Bachelor’s degree of Education. I have a TESOL certification also. I’ve taught middle school students math and English in Japan. I have been teaching Japanese and English for children and adults in U.S as well. I’ve been teaching for over 29 years in total. In my personal life, I’ve taught my daughter Japanese and she is a perfect bilingual now!! My hobbies are drawing pictures, playing the ukulele, watching movies, and cooking!! You can learn many things about Japanese culture from movies, music, and art. If you enjoy learning Japanese, and then you will most likely master Japanese language very well!! Let’s have fun learning!! I cannot wait to see you soon in my class.
