I am a 22-year old graduate of UCLA. I have had a passion for Japanese language and culture for several years now, and have spent time living Japan as well. Even though I myself am not Japanese, most people in Japan believed that I was born and raised there due to my native sounding speech!
I have experience working in the Japanese entertainment industry as a JPOP idol, pop singer, and model, so as a former talent in Japan's show business, I believe I can make learning Japanese a holistic and fun learning experience. I believe that I have the imaginative personality, cultural knowledge, and organized character to really help you get the most out of your sessions in Japanese- whether you want to learn basic conversation, slang, or business/formal dialogue, I am willing to cater each lesson to your particular needs.
As for my credentials...:
At Upright Corporation and Agency, I worked as a model, singer, and performer in Tokyo, Japan. After launching my career as a model in runway fashion and photo shoots, I was signed to a JPOP (Japanese Pop) production agency. Our JPOP group performed on a weekly basis in our own live theatre house, and I sang, danced, and performed comedy routines entirely in Japanese. I also appeared in occasional commercial and television footage.
I additionally worked as an instructor at an intensive English Boot Camp in Japan, where I taught English to college students and professionals at intensive 3-day retreats. I also offered private tutoring to working Japanese clientele, and catered to their various backgrounds of business, media, engineering, etc.
I cannot wait to help guide you through one of the most interesting and complex languages in the world. I greatly look forward to hearing from you!
