I like traveling. I have traveled to over fifteen countries, Australia, Fiji, US, NZ, Thailand, Singapore, Greece, The Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, and Canada. I enjoy meeting people and seeing beautiful landscapes.

For over two years, I've worked in Canada, and in January 2015, I came back to Japan.

I've worked in the tourism industry, so I'm good at making trip plan. I had lived in Tokyo and Kyoto, and Hiroshima, and I'm in Kyoto again, so I can advise you where to go in Japan.

In my lessons, we can use my online textbooks, video, and audio materials.

I'd like to exchange knowledge, not only teaching language.
I get some new information from each lessons, and I'd also want to give you new, fun information.
I believe one of the great things about learning a new language is it is like opening a door to a new world.

I'm looking forward to talking to you :)
