I am a friendly, free spirited, and well-educated artist from Japan, living in New York City

I speak fluent Japanese and English. Oil painting for me is another language and is my passion. As an artist, I am a dedicated and skilled painter but I have a passion for the art of language as well.

I received BFA from San Francisco Art Institute, and Masters degree from the Tish School of Art, NYU.

I have been actively exhibiting my paintings in Italy and at a recent one-woman show at Nancy Margolis Gallery in Chelsea, NYC in last March.

As for teaching Japanese, my first language is Japanese and I am a creative and patient teacher.

I have two years experience teaching English to children in Japan.

I very much enjoyed this experience. I utilized drama as a teaching technique - using body expression to demonstrate the thoughts, feelings and ideas of the students.

I can adapt the concept of this dynamic technique to tutor students if they prefer to it. I can use the proper textbook according to each student’s needs and skill level.

Additional to language I could also teach knitting, crochet, sewing and cooking.

Drawing

I received BFA from San Francisco Art Institute, and a master's degree from the Tisch School of the Arts, NYU. I am a professional, skilled artist and drawing is my daily tool. I have been actively exhibiting my paintings in Italy and at a recent one-woman show at Nancy Margolis Gallery in Chelsea, NYC in last March.

Japanese

My first language is Japanese, and I was born and raised in Japan. I went to Kobe Unuversity, majoring in English literature. I transferred to San Francisco Art Institute majoring in Art. I also have a masters degree, MFA at Tish school of Art at NYU. Painting is my passion.

I am always interested in the differences between the Japanese culture of my upbringing and that of my decade of experiences in America- a theme I frequently explore in my painting. The relationship between Language and Art fascinate me.

Perfect Tutor — I'm really happy that I found her on this website. I had been looking for a painting tutor who speaks my language because it's easier to understand. I've met her 4 times by now, and my painting skills are getting better obviously. I had hated painting lessons until I met her! She is very patient, easygoing, and intelligent. She teaches me anything I want to know. She is not only a tutor for me but ...
