Hello,

I moved to the U.S. from Japan with my husband after completing graduate school in 2012. I obtained a certificate in Teaching Japanese as a Second Language. I love teaching and tutoring. I have also graduated from an American university, so English is not a problem. I am a polite, cheerful and open minded person!

Hope to see you soon!
