I am a native speaker of Japanese, have a Masters Degree in Japanese from the University of Hawaii and have taught Japanese in high schools, universities and large corporations. I am familiar with a broad range of textbooks commonly used in learning the Japanese Language and have worked with a broad range of students. Most recently I was a adjunct professor of Japanese at Austin Community College in Texas. I also taught two corporate executives in Asia Sales in Austin, Texas and some advanced highschool students who returned from a year abroad program in Japan.

Corporate Training:


I have been teaching the Japanese Language professionally since 1976 and have taught at the high school level at Kaimuki High School in Honolulu, Hawaii and at Austin High School and St. Stephens High School in Austin, TX.

I have taught Japanese at the university level at the University of Hawaii and Austin Community College, and at the corporate level for National Instruments in Austin, Texas.

Additionally, I have worked as an interpreter/translator in the State of Texas, have tutored students in Austin, Texas and have experience teaching English as a Second Language in Iran and Saudi Arabia.

I am a bilingual native speaker of Japanese. I graduated from Aoyama Gakuin University, Tokyo, Japan with a degree in English and speak, read and write fluent English.

I earned an MA in Japanese from the Department of East Asian Languages and Literature at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, Hawaii where I studied teaching Japanese as a Second Language with a specialty in syntax and linguistics. One of my strengths is the ability to simplify Japanese grammar for students by providing clear and concise explanations and examples.

I was awarded a scholarship to the Linguistic Society of America Summer Institute where I studied with world-class scholars in Japanese Language and Linguistics.

In 1977, I co-published an article in PAPERS IN JAPANESE LINGUISTICS, Volume 5, with Dr. Masayoshi Shibatani, Professor Emeritus, Kobe University and current Deedee McMurty Professor and Chair of the Department of Linguistics at Rice University.

I have experience with the following commonly used Japanese textbook series:

Japanese for Busy People
Adventures in Japanese
Elizabeth Jordan’s Nihongo
The University of Hawaii Series
