Graduated from eastern Michigan University with a bachelors degree in Linguistics and a minor in Japanese. I have also spent a year studying abroad in Japan at the Japan center for Michigan Universities in Hikone. As evidenced by my field of study I find that language is what I am most passionate about and more specifically Japanese. perhaps due to my background in linguistics I find that I tend to like taking a more technical approach to the idea of language learning and try to add elements of the science of it into the study. for example, talking about the difference in construction between two languages and how understanding these differences can help with the language learning process. As someone who studied linguistics I have a passion for language learning in all of its forms and I try to impart a bit of that passion on students as learning another language in in my opinion one of the most valuable and rewarding things that a person can do. Outside of academics I am a big fan of film as well as an automotive enthusiast.
