I am a recent graduate from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Japanese, Asian Studies, and Political Science. I initially began learning Japanese for fun. My love for the language is what led me to major in it in college and become a tutor. As a junior and senior I was a tutor for the 100 introductory level Japanese. I am most passionate about tutoring introductory Japanese because I love to help students understand the core aspects of the language. I believe learning a language is an important part of education because it expands and builds a student's understanding of the world. In my spare time, I enjoy walking my dog, watching anime, and learning new languages.
