Since I was a child, I have always been interested in Science and skilled in Mathematics. This eventually led to me studying Chemistry at Hope College and attaining a Bachelor of Science degree.
While I was in college, I also became interested in Japan. After college graduation, I taught English in Japan for many years. During that time, I studied Teaching English as a Second Language, and attained a Master's Degree. Now I teach ESL at a school in downtown Columbus Ohio.
My main experience is teaching English to people who speak other languages, but I also have experience teaching the Japanese language, and helping my children, and other children understand Math and Science. Once, I even tutored Physics, using Japanese.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy running and singing. Exercise and Art strengthen the mind!

I like to use my mind to solve logical puzzles, like math problems, playing chess, and coding. I like sports that involve endurance, like running and cycling. I like listening to, and singing music. Running gives me good lung capacity to sing well!
