I was a teaching assistant to an English Learning Development class in high school for two years, so I got to interact with students who just came to America from other countries, such as Iran, France, and Vietnam. I'm also currently working as a language tutor, helping American students with Japanese or Japanese students with English. I am passionate about reaching out to others who are new to America or just need help with the languages that I know.
I also studied abroad in Japan last summer, so I've gained a perspective of Japanese culture as well as their relations to America. When I was in Japan I also helped university students prepare for their experience with studying abroad in America by practicing English with them daily. I also acted as a translator for English speaking students who didn't know any Japanese.
