About Justin

I am 29 years old, born and raised in the greater Buffalo area. I have 2 BA's, one in Geography with a concentration in International Business and World Trade and Environmental conservation and policy. My other BA is in Japanese. I attended SUNY at Buffalo for my degrees from January of 2005 to February of 2009.

My original goal however was to travel, somehow, some way. I began as a Business major at UB, quickly realized it just was not for me. I did not enjoy how the business school's focuses seemed to be all about statistical analysis, macro/microeconomics, accounting, etc. I migrated to the Geography department focusing on International Business and World Trade. I finally felt I was on the right track at that point. I enjoyed their philosophy and/or take on the same topic of International Business that I started in the Business school better. It was here that I was taught that business is more than just numbers, accounting, stats, etc...business from a geographical viewpoint revolved around the concept that business in "this" region of the world happens this way due to where "this" nation falls on the globe. That concept changed me! I could grab onto that much better.

That still was not enough for me though. My minor at the time was Japanese. I had always had a passion for the Japanese arts, culture, language and of course people. I enrolled into a abroad program through UB which realized my greatest dream,...I moved to Osaka, Japan, technically a smaller city, maybe 30-40min by express train called Takarazuka. It was there that I attended Konan University, there I became fluent in the local Japanese dialect, Kansai-ben. It saddened me beyond belief to leave but I had to eventually return here to finish college. When i returned it became apparent thsat I was just 4 credits shy of a double major so took a extra Japanese class here to complete my 2nd BA. Now I work at a law firm full time in East Amherst; however, my goal is to return to Japan and teach English and someday open my own TEFL/TESOL school there.

I have completed Oxford Seminars TEFL/TESOL course and also have while in Japan tutored English on the side. My strengths lie in conservational English and piblic speaking but I have a extremely strong grasp on the English language as a whole as well as business English. I am a fun, outgoing, sociable person who never gives up and has a deep passion to help anyone. I get along well with all age groups and am a very patient and courteous person.

I'm a energetic, outgoing guy! I love to laugh, have fun and love people of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy music, running, camping, cooking and traveling and most importantly teaching, imparting the various skills/knowledge and lessons which I have acquired to others of all ages and backgrounds. Some other acedemic passions that some may enjoy such as Astronomy, History, and politics. I never judge and always will take time out of my day to help those who need me to.
