My name is Emiko, and Japanese is my native language. I have been in this country for 16 years. I have taught Japanese language classes and culture classes privately and also for elementary schools' after-school program and town recreation programs since 2012. I am in the program of intermediate Japanese Teacher Program in NYC and hold a certificate of teaching Japanese from Japan Society in NYC.

Thank you so much for your interest in my class. I look forward to hearing from you.
