Japanese and everything about Japan is my passion. I first started learning Japanese in high school and studied abroad in Japan through AFS for a year while living with a host family. While I was there I passed level 2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), a first for any AFS student at the time. I went on to attend the Japanese language school Yamasa in Aichi, Prefecture and then passed level 1 of the JLPT at age 20. Afterward, I attended Nanzan University where I graduated from the Business Management Department in 2009. Since graduating I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter for 9 years.

Through my experiences learning Japanese and living in Japan I can answer any questions you may have about the language or culture. I enjoy teaching everyone from beginner's to those studying advanced Japanese to enter a university or work in Japan. Unlike a native Japanese speaker, I am able to systematically explain grammar and other technical areas in a way that will make sense. You can then quickly utilize these techniques to accelerate your own learning.

Each lesson will be tailored to the specific area you would like to study and improve. If you would like to work on conversational Japanese for instance, I can teach you informal Japanese so you can have conversations with friends or dive deeper into a hobby you may have such as anime, J-pop or video games. Learning in a fun and relaxing atmosphere is important and will help you learn quicker and retain information.
