My background is as a Marriage and Family Counselor since 2010 by obtaining my Master's degree at San Diego State University and a Bachelor's degree in Clinical Psychology. In general, a counselor might not been seen as an educator, although it involves a great amount of time to educate or reeducate a client during a session, (such as life couching, providing a new resources to lead a right pass or/and teach a appropriate skill to improve his/her life). I have been utilizing this great skill and experience in order to teach various age and cultural groups from young child to adults. I am most passionate about Japanese language and culture, which are my native language and culture. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as a camping, hiking and snowboarding.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My Teaching philosophy is a "Student Centered Method." The Student's needs and beliefs come first in order to have a successful tutoring session. Also, it is priority for me to gain my understanding of what his/her ultimate goals are from each tutoring session. The sessions are strictly for the students, and I would respect how they like to use their own time.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I like to find out where a student's stunts are by asking what is his/her ultimate goals are and what it is his/her the best studying methods are (what works the best and worst). I believe that this information about them will assist and enhance our tutoring session.
