Hello! I am a native Japanese who has lived in the U.S. for almost 20 years. When I lived in Osaka, Japan, I helped native English speakers who taught English to Japanese high school students to learn Japanese. I have a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language (TESOL) and am currently working on the PhD in the field of International Education. I worked with people with international background at a university in New York for a decade and have already enjoyed working with the special population. As a second language learner as well as a teacher, I have already felt that it is critical to use language in authentic and practical contexts, not just acquiring the knowledge such as grammar and vocabularies. Thus, I focus on honing the skills in conversations, communications, and negotiations skills, all of which help you use the language more effectively.

I have an MS in TESOL from State University of New York at Albany. I studied and took TOEFL for US university admissions, and completed research about TOEFL during my graduate program.
I am a native speaker of Japanese, and have previous experience in teaching Japanese in Japan and the U.S. My knowledge is in intercultural communications.
