Hi! Very quickly about myself: Born in Japan, raised in Miami, FL since 6 months old. I speak Japanese at home with my parents (and have went to a Japanese Saturday school in Miami), english with my friends, and being raised in Miami, I'm able to speak Spanish as well - but not as fluently as Japanese or English. I have a sister that is 5 years younger than me so I am very good at teaching my specified courses because I have always taught my sister things since she was born. I was a kindergarten teacher assistant for 2 years, and I love kids. They inspire me every time with their energy and happiness they radiate to others.

My favorite hobby is traveling (as a result, I studied abroad this past semester in Valencia, Spain) because I believe meeting people creates more of a depth to my personality and character.

Times listed could be changed depending on circumstances so please don't be afraid to ask me about anything! :)

Shizuno taught me piano for 3 years when I was in middle school. She always managed to make the lessons fun and interesting, which made me look forward to our weekly meetings. It it because of her that I continued interested in piano and hope to continue playing and studying throughout college.
