My Japanese roots of my family began in Tokyo, Japan with my grandmother and father both 1st generation born and raised Japanese. I have previously lived in Japan for over three years studying the language and culture. I began my studies during my years as an undergraduate student at Michigan State University where I acquired my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication, studied Japanese 101 through 201 and studied abroad in Japan for an entire academic year. After graduating I have continued my studies in Japanese independently to expand my knowledge in vocabulary, grammar and writing.

My experiences have shaped my perspective on the Japanese language and what it takes to excel as a continued learner and linguist of Japanese as a second language. Skilled in Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji, grammar and conversational uses up to the intermediate level. I can easily understand and relate to the students and their obstacles that come with learning Japanese for I too experienced them and thus overcame them. I am able to simplify the grammatical instruction into a more clear and easily understood explanation and perspective. I am also able to provide conversational practice,

I welcome anyone who is willing to learn such an awesome language and those wishing to excel in it.
