I majored in Japanese at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and at the University of Hiroshima, Japan. I have been studying Japanese since I was 13 years old and have lived in Japan for a number of years going to school and working at Japanese companies. While in Japan I also had the opportunity to teach Japanese kids and Adults English at a language school. It was a ton of fun and my classes were always exciting. My students passed all their English exams while I was their teacher. I also have experience as a private teacher/tutor to many other children and adults in Japan who wanted to increase their English. I have a strong reputation as being kind, intelligent and understanding to my students needs. Learning Japanese is by no means easy. It takes hard work and dedication. But I believe if you can make a subject fun, the learning process is much easier. I have an organically structured teaching environment. I am laid back but I expect performance from my students.
