Bio

After my graduation from Towson University I decided to start perusing a career in teaching English to international students because I enjoyed helping my international friends with their question about English.

The first step was to enroll and complete the TESOL certification course offered at UMBC in 2011. The next step was trying teaching students, which led me to apply for the Japan English Teacher program or JET in the summer of 2011. I have recently returned from working as an...

After my graduation from Towson University I decided to start perusing a career in teaching English to international students because I enjoyed helping my international friends with their question about English.

The first step was to enroll and complete the TESOL certification course offered at UMBC in 2011. The next step was trying teaching students, which led me to apply for the Japan English Teacher program or JET in the summer of 2011. I have recently returned from working as an Assistant Language Teacher in Japan through the Japanese English Teachers, or JET program in Nobeoka City, Miyazaki Prefecture Japan.

In July 2013, I completed my two year contract, and have returned to America in hopes of continuing my career in international relations while working in the field of education. The two years in Miyazaki Prefecture have given me a well rounded view on the world and has instilled a deep appreciation for a Japanese culture. My job as an Assistant language teacher required me to teach not only English in the classroom, but also plan and attend various events such as English Language classes, teaching at a local daycare, and creating my own cultural events.

I am very confident that I will be a great teacher because I have learned from many amazing teachers in the past. During my sophomore year of high school I studied Japanese for the first time. Our teacher not only taught us Japanese language but also instilled in us a deep appreciation of Japanese culture. In the same way I want to not only teach my students English but I want to also teach them about American culture. During my time as an ALT in the JET program I took the time to listen to my students I was teaching. If students looked uninterested or had difficulty understanding I would discuss with the teachers about changing the lesson to help the students.

Another rewarding experience is teaching young children. I am very fortunate to have experience teaching not only Elementary age children but young children as well. Teaching younger children is a very rewarding experience. As a teacher there is nothing more rewarding then watching students who knew little to no English, become able to use the English language. In addition to this, it is very exciting to cheer on these students as they participate in school events.

My experience in Japan also extends to teaching at an English Language conversation school. This school was located right next to Mt. Fuji, and made it a beautiful place to work and live. As a result of Mt. Fuji that area received a large amount of foreigners which it made it important to speak English.

I have studied Japanese since high school for over 5 years. I have passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N3. I am currently studying for the JLPT N2. I have also spent 5 years living and working in Japan. Thank you for looking at my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.
