I was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan. I earned my B.A in English from college in Kyoto as well. I came to the U.S as an ESL student. I loved the lifestyle of sunny California and decided to make this my hometown.
After years of experience working in a variety of fields, primarily in the hospitality industry, I decided to pursue my career as a language instructor. For the past 6 years, I have taught over eighty students young and old in private and small group lessons.
Learning a new language is not easy. I know that from my own experience. It will be an exciting and rewarding journey for you though. You will acquire skills to meet and communicate with people in Japanese, an experience that will expand your possibilities. It goes beyond the good grade on your report card or test scores.
I'm looking forward to meeting you and working with you, learning and enjoying Japanese. Are you ready to begin?
