I am currently studying Japanese and education at Western Washington University. I spent a year studying abroad in Nagoya, Japan, and I learned so much about the language and culture, and myself. My goal after graduation is to become a high school Japanese teacher. I am passionate about both subjects and about teaching. I have teaching experience with students in high schools here in Bellingham, and have just completed my student teaching internship abroad in Hobart, Tasmania, where I planned and taught Japanese lessons to four 7th grade classes, two 8th grade classes, and one 9/10th grade combined class for a period of 11 weeks. Before that, I helped tutor students in Japan and India in English in a conversational context. I am a very easy-going, amiable person. I enjoy teaching, and that makes a world of difference for both the tutor and the student.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I am currently studying art at Western Washington University. I have taken drawing classes and have a portfolio of drawings available. Since I'm studying education as well, I have a good idea of how to teach techniques and other such aspects of art.

Japanese

I am a senior currently studying Japanese at Western Washington University, and my goal is to become a high school Japanese teacher. I've been studying it for 8 years now. I spent a year living and studying in Nagoya, Japan, and it was the best year of my life. I've really developed a deep passion for the language and culture of Japan, and I can't imagine my life without it!



Through my 8 years of studying Japanese, I've been helping my peers understand grammar and study vocabulary, kanji, and whatever else they need through personal tutoring sessions. Because I have personally learned Japanese as a second language, I'm aware of the challenges it holds for English speakers and can explain concepts in a way that's easy to internalize. I've worked with many exchange students tutoring English as well, since I'm a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) minor, so I know a variety of learning strategies!

SAT Writing

I scored a 1910 overall on my SAT, with 100% on the essay section.

Track & Field

I ran track and field for all four years in high school. I went to state in my events all four years as well. Throughout my time on the team, I was helping other teammates with their form, starts, etc. I also worked with children one summer at a track and field workshop/camp.
