I would like to begin by saying I am a native of the northern Virginia area and a product of the Fairfax County public school system. I have been studying the Japanese language since 8th grade and continued my education by majoring in East Asian Studies, with a Japanese concentration, at a reputable private Virginia university. After graduating, I went to Japan to take part in the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program where I taught Japanese students English for two years. During this time I strengthened my Japanese skills and passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Exam.
I have experience teaching foreign languages to all ages from Kindergarten to high school seniors. Yes, memorization techniques are important for building vocabulary, but I believe true language skills come from conversation and frequent utilization of what is learned in the classroom.
