Hi, my name is Erika. I was born and grew up in Japan. I moved to San Diego in 2013 after I received my first MA in Literature. I went to San Diego State University and earned my second MA in Applied Linguistics in 2015. Besides the two MAs, I also hold Advanced Certificate in TESL/TEFL from SDSU. I have taught Japanese at SDSU for a year. I also have experience of Teaching Assistant and Grader both in Japan and the US. When I was in Japan, I was tutoring for almost seven years. I always enjoy teaching and love helping my students learn new culture!
