I am a recent graduate of the University of Missouri Saint Louis (UMSL). I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Languages with a focus in Japanese. I tutor Japanese and I have a passion for learning and teaching about Japan. I believe that learning a new language opens up a new world to students. Language learning can provide an inexhaustible source of entertainment as the student can be more readily exposed to great art and literature from another country. In my free time I enjoy target archery, hiking, camping, and horseback riding.
