About Irma

Having spent the last 18 years teaching English in Japan, I have found the many routes to teach young learners with confidence and a smile, the two most important tools to learning a language. From my personal experience of growing up in two concurrent surroundings involving two languages, I am familiar with the inner questions and hesitations during the introduction of new concepts in language. Enjoying this challenge, I pursued a third language in my early teens which enabled me to make keen observations of language in general, and the way cultures are exhibited via language.

Having these amazing experiences with language, I was able to travel comfortably in many countries, even in cases in which I did not speak a certain language. I look forward to meeting and helping those who need supplemental studies in any degree of English or Spanish.

A strong background in English comes from having a passionate teachers throughout my entire schooling, and Spanish came from daily use of at home from a keen speaker and reader: my mom, as well as university studies and in a professional settings involving public speaking in Spanish.

Fortunate to have warm and wonderful English teachers in junior high and high school, I pursued English literature briefly in university as a distraction to the heavy science load in college. And listening to my mom's memories of her father's deep interest in Spanish language form and context, it excites me to think of the theory of acquired behavior.

Understanding the basics of language is a fun challenge to achieve, but overcoming the convoluted peaks of communication leaves young learners with the desire to take bigger steps forward. I hope to be part of that goal.
