I am native Japanese. I went to public schools through high school in Japan. I was selected as an exchange student in high school and stayed with a host family in Maine for one year. When I came back to Japan, I won an English speech contest. I also did some tutoring English to a junior high student. After graduating from high school, I came back to attend a college in California. While the dorms were closed during a break from the semesters, I stayed with my host family and I helped their son and daughter with math.

I worked for a Japanese bank for over 9 years in US. I prepared loan applications (ringi) in Japanese as well as English. I had Japanese businesses as clients and interacted with them in Japanese. I also did the translation of loan applications from Japanese to English and English to Japanese in order to comply with the bank regulations in US and Japan.

I am very logical and straight forward. I get excited when students get "unstuck" with problems that they are facing with.

I look forward to working with you soon.
