I'm a private Japanese and French tutor with over four years of group and private lesson experience. I grew up speaking French at home and in school. I lived in Japan for several years and studied Japanese language in the US for over six years.
I enjoy playing the guitar, violin and drums. Other hobbies of mine include camping, hiking, training for triathlons, soccer, traditional Japanese martial arts and learning new languages.
I'm a very friendly and honest person. Whatever difficulties you might be having with your language studies, we will conquer them together. I bet you'll be surprised with how much you can learn!

What is your teaching philosophy?
Adaptation. My philosophy is to change my style, tools and approach in order to meet each student's needs. Some students want lessons to augment their current studies, while some simply wish to take on a new language as a form of personal betterment. Whatever the reason for studying, the learning process should be exciting and full of personal growth.
