About Megumi

I used to teach English to Japanese students in Japan and now I am teaching Japanese in America to people who are interested in Japanese culture!

I am a PhD candidate majoring in English literature and already have a professional teaching license for English for secondary/high school in Japan, including a 4-year teaching experience at 2 private cram schools for K-12.

While I was being a teacher in Japan, I saw many students who just didn't know the best way to learn. It was my great pleasure to discover several very efficient ways of learning for students and I also enjoyed to see them becoming more and more motivated as they improved.
My parents are both professors of foreign languages in college, so my affinity for language study might be genetic.

I am currently a teaching assistant (TA) for a Japanese introductory class at a local, highly acclaimed college. While in Japan, I helped foreign visitors as a volunteer guide and also helped them to learn Japanese. I have substantial experience in private tutoring with a variety of students, and I excel at helping people who do not feel comfortable in a large class or who need to focus on practice to catch up.

Awesome tutor!

Very engaging, patient, and quick to adapt to the student's skillset. In addition to being a great tutor, Megumi is an even better person to talk to, which is perfect for practicing Japanese speaking skills. Overall an outstanding learning experience, highly recommended!
