My husband and I have just relocated to Chapel Hill from the Philadelphia area. We returned home from 5 1/2 years in Japan last year, and I'm eager to continue learning and teaching! While in Japan I tutored students of all ages (1.5yrs and up!) in English, as well as instructing co-workers in Japanese (elementary-intermediate). I hold a level 1 proficiency in Japanese on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (certified last winter). I graduated from Ursinus College with honors, and received the Japanese Award. I'm also a member of the national honor society, Phi Beta Kappa.
More than anything, I love being able to make things clear to a student. When students walk out of a lesson being able to perform a skill they couldn't before, that's what makes my job worthwhile. I love languages - and I hope I can help you learn to love them too!
