Teaching since:

I am a native Japanese speaker. I'm now living in the USA but also in Japan and go back and forth here and Tokyo. So I know the Japanese trend well from comics to business.
I have long working experience as engineering manager at some major international companies in japan. I know it is difficult for you to communicate with Japanese workers because there are a lot of business custom differences between Japan and other countries. If you feel something wrong in your communication with Japanese, please let me know it. I believe I can give you some tips on each specific situation.
I have the teaching credential of general science for middle and high school students certified by the Japanese University and I have successfully passed the Japanese language Teaching Competency Test authorized by the Society for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language in Oct 2016.
