I am a recent graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Japanese Language and Culture. During the course of my undergraduate work, I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Hikone, Shiga Prefecture, Japan for eight months. During that time, my languages skill was not the only thing that grew - so too did my appreciation and understanding of Japanese culture. I work part time on Saturdays ata Japanese school in Detroit, where I assist with setup and lesson preparation - in Japanese! I also hold a BA of History from Northern Arizona University. While the focus of my studies was not English, history coursework demands strong reading and writing skills.

I grew up in a classroom - my mother is a teacher, and when I was younger, I spent my mornings, afternoons, and often weekends in her classroom. As I grew up, I watched and learned from her - what makes for interesting, engaging and effective lessons. I have also given lessons in her classroom, focused on Japanese culture. There is a joy in sharing knowledge, and in watching students come to understand and master new material.

During my time at Eastern Michigan University, I worked as a Supplemental Instructor to beginning Japanese students. I attended their classes, assisted the professor and students during class, and scheduled one hour sessions three times a week for students. These sessions were focused on both what was currently being studied in class, and specific concerns brought up by students during sessions.

Though not specifically English, my first degree demanded strong reading and writing skills. Paired with a minor in Political Science, the majority of my undergrad coursework revolved around critically reading source material, then applying that material in both essays and essay exams.

I hope to be of help and look forward to hearing from you!

Great session!

Clara came away from her lesson very pumped! She loves her Japanese lessons with Jessica. I love how she inspires and motivates Clara to work harder.
