Hi to all my future students!

As someone who craves learning new things, it is a pleasure to be able to share my love of learning with students.

From my travels in Japan and throughout Asia, to my exposure to many cultures in our great city, I believe these experiences and stories can influence students to open up their minds to new possibilities.

Previously, in Japan, I not only taught English language classes, but tutored individuals with wide-ranging English language abilities. It was fun to be able to share my native language with others.

My personality reflects my philosophy of respect for others, kindness and an empathetic ear for those struggling with their given studies.

During my leisure, I enjoy playing tennis, biking along the lake, and traveling!

I look forward to meeting and being the best tutor for you.
