I have a BA in Japanese from Brigham Young University. I have lived in Japan on two separate occasions, first for two years, then, after finishing my degree, for five years. My entire professional career has involved Japan and the Japanese language. I taught Japanese classes at BYU for three years while finishing my BA and throughout my graduate school studies. I love the language and culture of Japan and have the teaching experience to help you learn the rules and understand how to communicate both verbally and culturally in Japanese. If you are a Japanese speaker learning English, I can help there, too. I studied both modern and classical Japanese grammar, which helped me understand my native English grammar better.

I am passionate about Japanese and will work as hard as I can to help you get through whatever class situation you have. I am the one people (my kids, wife, mother) always come to for help on their homework because I'm patient and thorough. I've taught professionally and informally and I enjoy the exchange between student and teacher. I'm sure I can help you.

Knowledgeable and flexible instructor

We are working on reading and writing kanji, and working to have me be able to teach climbing lessons in Japanese. He has been helping me contextualize the Japanese I already know with in the grammatical and cultural contexts of the language.
