I am a business professional with experience in Financial Services, Real Estate and Information Technology. I am Japanese bilingual, having lived, worked and traveled in Japan. I developed a love and appreciation for Japan, the language, and the people. I want to share that fascination with others.
I like tutoring because the content can be tailored to the individual, based on their circumstances and interests. I establish a solid foundation in understanding the sentence structure and build the vocabulary on top of it. I teach hiragana early to further aid in building a strong foundation for learning.
I've been a computer programming tutor and instructor for two separate groups of Japanese employees of an Information Technology company, teaching them in their native language. I've taught introductory Japanese to a variety of people, including:
- a business person preparing to relocate to Japan
- children 5 to 12 years old
I've also taught English as a Second Language to a number of Japanese and other foreign expats.
Those I've worked with find that I'm very personable and enjoy working with people. I relate well to learners of Japanese because I've gone through it and understand their perspective and issues. I'm also a long time user of Microsoft Word and Excel, willing to help with pivot tables, conditional formatting, vlookup and other functions.
I moved to Japan as a 19 year old missionary. Two years later, I returned to the US and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Utah State University, with an emphasis in Finance, and minors in Japanese and Economics. I also have a Master's of Business Administration from the University of Michigan, graduating with High Distinction (top 10%).
I completed an internship in Tokyo for the Mitsubishi Corporation and have traveled to Japan otherwise on several occasions for business and pleasure.
I enjoy teaching, reading, learning, and participating in sports. I mountain bike and play basketball, tennis and soccer.
Extensive, day to day experience in Excel. I'm able to simplify Excel and show you how to do the things you need using pivot tables, conditional formatting, filters, and key formulas and shortcuts.
My focus is on business applications of Excel. Whether you need help with a particular project, or just want some general tutoring, I'm happy to help.
