Attending University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) (Japanese)

My parents were teachers and now so am I. I grew up in classrooms helping create fun, engaging curriculum for elementary kids and helping focus young minds and energy on the fun of reading, writing and arithmetic. I got my undergraduate degree in Japanese, graduate degree with a focus on Japan, and lived in Japan for years teaching English.
I have a bi-lingual household and really love young kids. If you want someone to patiently help your children improve their reading, writing or vocabulary in English or their immersive skills in Japanese - look no further.
I have an Undergraduate degree in Japanese, a Japan focus graduate degree, was completely immersed in a Japanese educational environment in Japan and bring my ability to communicate those experiences and learning to young minds here in Hawaii.
I taught English in Japan for three years. In addition, as I studied Japanese, I found you must have a deep understanding of English including grammar, reading and vocabulary in order to succeed in another language.
Besides growing up in an Elementary School Teacher's classroom and my experience with K-6 grade students, I am currently working on a Montessori Teacher Education Program to get my Early Childhood (ages 2 1/2 – 6) credential and teaching license for the State of Hawaii.
I am flexible on time and location. In addition I am very responsive to parent requests, needs for progress reports and updates, and learning related questions or issues in between regularly scheduled times. As an added bonus, I will recommend apps/sites that will turn your kid's tablet, smart phone and/or computer in true learning tools.

I not only grew up in my mother's classroom helping with curriculum and tutoring younger students (she taught multiple grades in kindergarten and elementary school) but I also taught English to elementary and middle school students for 3 years when I lived in Japan employed by the Japanese Ministry of Education with the JET program. In addition, I am currently working on a Montessori Teacher Education Program for Early Childhood and Elementary credentials for the State of Hawaii.
I received a bachelor degree in Japanese from the University of California Santa Barbara and continued my Japanese studies when I lived and worked in Japan (for 3 years) where I worked for the Japanese Ministry of Education. After the completion of this work/study, I graduated with a Japan-focused MBA (JEMBA) from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in a special program in conjunction with the Japan American Institute of Managerial Science. This included a 3 month internship in a Japanese company in Tokyo. I speak fluent Japanese and at one point in my career worked at International Planning Inc - an interpreting agency out of Orlando Florida.
