About James

I was born and raised in this area, even going so far to attend Spanaway Lake High School. I've always been of good humor and laid back, but when it's time to buckle down and work, make no mistake. When the time to perform has come, the time for preparation has past. I taught English in Japan for two years, as well as some religious classes. It was there that I discovered a personal gift for teaching and how I loved being able to help someone solve their problems.
I've found being able to work with students that truly want to succeed is a great blessing, and I think such great students deserve a great learning experience in return, therefore I do my best to offer that experience. If the student is a bit difficult and wants to challenge me, well then, challenge accepted! Learning is fun, if you let it be so.

I spent two years studying Japanese in high school from a native, and it was there my love for all things Japanese truly awakened. I had the opportunity to serve an additional two years in the country itself, conversing and working with natives daily. I have an exceptional working knowledge of spoken Japanese (grammar, vocabulary, etc.), and would consider myself fair in writing. I love being able to help people understand the true and deeper meanings hidden behind this beautiful language. While in Japan I taught English in Japanese, so making the switch was not very difficult at all.

Whatever your reasons for taking on this difficult language, professional or hobby, it is a cause worth pursuing. Give me a shout and I'll do my best to get your ball rolling on the way to fluency, higher grades, or whatever you feel you need most help with.
