Konnichiwa! My name is Nozomi, and it means HOPE in English. I have more than 10 years of experience teaching Japanese. I have taught students from preschoolers to adults with a variety of learning goals.

I am currently teaching Japanese at the Japanese American Society in DC and at a local language school to teach Japanese to US government fellows chosen by a Japanese foundation as international exchange candidates.

I was born in Sendai Japan and moved to Tokyo when I entered University. I am a graduate of Keio University in Tokyo Japan. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a focus on Ethics and Philosophy in Terminal Care. I was always fascinated by the wonder of human life and had a wonderful experience at the Hospis as a spiritual care volunteer worker for 3 years.

While I was at college, I also studied English a lot to become an interpreter by attending a vocational school.

I started to work as a tutor when I was a college student and taught some middle school and high school students. I thought Japanese, English, and Math. Some students needed support for their school work and test prep, and some wanted to study intensively for the college entrance exams.
It was a lot of fun and rewarding to teach when I received positive feedback from my students and their parents, and saw the students enjoy learning. I am really happy to see them overcome their area of weakness and gradually gain confidence!

I worked as a translator and interpreter at a Japanese NPO, a Japanese heavy industrial company, and a patent law firm in Washington DC. I raised my 2 children bilingual and did homeschooling for 3 years while the COVID pandemic. Now they are back in public school and I would like to use my time to teach and meet wonderful people!

Thank you for reading my story and hope we can study Japanese together!
