I was born and raised in Japan. I'm an authentic native Japanese speaker. I received my education from some of the finest academic institutions in the country.

I enjoy working with students of all ages and proficiency levels.

Besides tutoring, I review and translate Japanese documents for international law firms, corporations, and government agencies.

I also work as a consecutive/simultaneous interpreter at international conferences, academic seminars, trade shows, and conventions.

I strive for linguistic excellence.

Serious inquiries only, please.
