I've had some great teachers over the years, and they've had two things in common - passion and a willingness to have a conversation.

I think that discussion-based learning is one of the most effective teaching-methods out there. There's bound to be something in a piece of writing that touches the reader, something that they would care enough to talk about; in my opinion, there's no better way to learn a language than to speak it.

I recently graduated from UW Madison with a degree in Japanese. My coursework was heavily focused on using the language, as well as interpreting and analyzing Japanese texts. I have worked as a writer with the Borgen Project, an anti-poverty group based in Seattle, as well as an English language tutor for students in Korea.

Outside of work and school, I really enjoy reading and writing. Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are hands down my favorite book, and I could probably talk about them forever.
