I first became acquainted with the world of tutoring back in college when I worked for the America Reads program. Through that experience I found that I really enjoyed teaching, and I took that passion all the way to Japan.

During my 3 and half years there as an ESL instructor, I had the opportunity to work with a variety of students: everyone from small children to retires. While it was great helping students to improve their test scores, translate their presentations, and boost their communication skills, I feel my most valuable contribution was cultural exchange. Even if it was just for moment, I'm happy that I encouraged locals to look past the stereotypes and see foreigners not as alien others, but just people.

Since coming back to the US, I've worked primarily as a content writer and strategist. Of course, I still have plenty of time to flex the creative muscles that I built at NYU; I run a site about life in Japan entitled Darkside of the Sun.net, where I double as the author of the comic strip NEET House.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I want to treat students the way I would like to be treated. That means personalizing a lesson to fit their individual needs. I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all model.
