I graduated from the University of Illinois with a B.A. degree in East Asian Languages and Culture, focused on Japanese language and culture. While an undergraduate, I also attended a 9-month intensive Japanese language and home-stay study abroad program at Konan University, located in Kobe City, Japan. I have lived and worked in Japan for almost 3 years as an English Instructor in Japanese public schools, in Northeast as well as West Japan. I am able to help with practical Japanese speaking skills as well as reading comprehension, using textbook and role-playing exercises to reinforce learned grammar, while enjoying topics that relate to Japanese language and culture.
