About James Y.

I have a diverse background in healthcare (acupuncturist & herbalist in integrative medicine), life sciences industry (biotechnology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals), professional sports (franchise management), and real estate (asset management). I have 2 years of clinical teaching experience as an associate faculty member training beginning intern acupuncturists assess patients and developing a treatment plan. I also tutored Chinese university students American English for a year when I was an exchange student in China from UCLA. As a problem-solver in clinical medicine or in life sciences industry consulting or in teaching/tutoring, I enjoyed interacting with patients/clients to understand their issues and come up with customized solutions for them. It is extremely gratifying to see the successful outcomes as a result of our collaborations and that is what I enjoy the most about helping others.

As a tutor or instructor, my approach is not to simply regurgitate what is being taught – but to understand where or how you’re struggling, diagnose it, and then advise you with concrete steps in helping you achieve the best you can be. Therefore, rather than a tutor in the strict sense of the term, my role can be considered as a consultant, collaborator, and a coach.


I have a BS degree in Biology from UCLA, as well as a Master of Bioscience degree from Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences. I also have a Master of Traditional Oriental Medicine degree from Emperor's College of Traditional Oriental Medicine, which also included curriculum in western clinical sciences, anatomy, and physiology.

Having been born in Japan and attended elementary school there, I am a native Japanese speaker.

During graduate school, I worked on numerous life science industry projects that required presenting project deliverables orally to various groups such as clients, stakeholders, and industry guests.

During graduate school, I worked on numerous life science industry projects that required presenting project deliverables on PowerPoint to various groups such as clients, stakeholders, and industry guests. In the management consulting field, I have also assisted clients with their PowerPoint presentations in their efforts to win venture capital investments.

I specialized in the Business of Bioscience in my Master of Bioscience program, where many of the business coursework were equivalent to those in the MBA program. Additionally, I've run various businesses since 2001, managing operations, personnel, marketing, public relations, business development, inventory, and sales. My background is quite diverse, including healthcare, life sciences industry (biotechnology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals), professional sports, and real estate.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions and see if I'm the right solution for your needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
