My immersion in Japanese language and culture began in early childhood, during which I pursued the studies on my own. Beginning in middle school, I acquired a tutor for individual instruction, which occurred over a period of three years. I continued practicing and developing skills on my own once more, prior to enrolling in an intermediate Japanese course at Temple University (pursuing a minor n the language, alongside a dual major of Asian Studies and History). Fall of 2010 marked my senior college year, as well as the period of studying abroad in Tokyo. In spite of attending a program at an English-speaking campus, I structured all of my activities around communicating with the locals strictly in Japanese. My specialization lies in Asian Studies, which segues into international business and marketing. As an optimization and marketing campaign editor-in-chief, I focus on keeping up with the socioeconomic trends in Asia, and Japan is of particular interest. The nuclear disaster that befell Fukushima in March of 2011 warrants for re-evaluation of resources and priorities in Japan; hence why I am eager to continue fostering relations with the Japanese-speaking public, as well as help the individuals acquire mastery in English, thus facilitating global communication. As of June 2011, I am a freelance tutor of English and would like to expand my Japanese-speaking clientele.
I am a native-born Russian speaker and have been using the language continually, even after immigrating to America. The former Soviet regime resulted in the RUssian language's being a de facto lingua franca; thus, learning (and mastering) Russian had been a compulsory part of the curriculum. In the current economic atmosphere, Russia still continues to exert powerful influence in the realm of international business; therefore, the necessity to have a firm command of the Russian language will continue to be germane on a socioeconomic level.
