I would love very much to help anyone who is interested in learning the Japanese language/culture or anyone who is studying English as second language. I am a native Japanese who came to the USA in 1972. I have a BA degree in linguistics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have taught English in Japan and at the UC Extension for UCSC. I also worked for AT&T as a Japanese interpreter for 3 years in the '90s. I am truly fluent in both languages, and I feel English to be just as native to me as Japanese after having spent 40 years in this country.
I have always enjoyed teaching or instructing. Since the year 2000, I have been working as a certified flight instructor helping people learn how to fly small airplanes at the local airport. I would appreciate an opportunity to put all my knowledge and experience to work for anyone who is striving to achieve higher proficiency in either language. I firmly believe learning MUST be fun. When it's fun, effective learning naturally takes place. I promise you that you will have fun during each session!
