About Kelly

I was born and raised in America. I speak fluent English. None of my relatives are Japanese. I did not learn it growing up, although I was exposed to German from an early age. I’ve been interested in Japanese since I was 9 (Sailor Moon, hello there), took it in high school as three extra independent courses (Japanese 1-3), went to Japan for two weeks when I was 17 (after two semesters of Japanese study) and proceeded to major in it in college.

I’ve got about 11 semesters of Japanese under my belt, 8 of which were college-level Japanese. My final Japanese course in college was Classical Japanese in Spring 2011, which I am not counting as it is not modern Japanese.

2014 marked my ten-year anniversary with the language (ages 16-26) and in those years, I’ve learned a few things about learning Japanese. I've tutored in Japanese before, and there's something to be said for individual learning, but I'd really like to try for few people in order to make a class. Then everyone gets to practice and learn together! I think that's a lot more fun.

I will be moving to the San Francisco area in May 2015. I am willing to work online for interviews or lessons, but am also willing to start some people on lessons and then move to in-person if they live in the Bay area. Just let me know what you want, and I'll do my best!
