I am the teacher students will never forget. They love me and hate me at the same time. I am quick to learn names and faces, and I know everyone on campus. If students have problems they don't want to share with their friends or parents, I am the one they will come talk to. I am good at creating positive culture for students by celebrating and recognizing their accomplishments because I believe motivation and drive are what influence individuals' success. But I am also very strict. I always make sure students are paying attention in the classroom and pushing themselves to get better. They know they can't skip my classes or miss their deadline for homework. That is why their parents trust me.

I was born in a Japanese family of teachers; my parents and aunt are elementary school teachers, and my uncle is a law school professor. My mother often took me to her job when I was little, and her positive impact on children’s lives inspired me to become a teacher myself.

Ever since I was a little kid, my passion has been languages. I memorized all my books before learning to read, and I taught myself Japanese sign language when I was 11. When I started taking English classes at middle school, I realized that learning foreign languages allows me to communicate with people from all around the world.

I studied Linguistics and Japanese Language Pedagogy in Waseda University, and I studied abroad for two semesters at Boston College in my sophomore year. After graduating from university, I taught English and Japanese as a tutor at a cram school in Tokyo for 3 years. From 2013 to March 2020, I worked at Japan College of Foreign Languages as a course manager.

I welcome both beginners and learners who have taken Japanese classes before. Please let me know what your goals are, and I will plan the lessons for you.

If you want to improve your general conversation skills, vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing or business Japanese, I can help you. Start your Japanese language learning today! Feel free to contact me with additional
