About Me

I am a certified Japanese teacher based in Ottawa, Canada. I have been living in Ottawa since 2013, and I have been teaching Japanese since then. I received an M.A degree in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies in 2017 from Carleton University.

Here are courses I have taught in the past:
-Intermediate class at a community language school
-Language program for Canadian diplomats (mostly one-on-one or small groups up to 3, beginner to advanced)
-University course (the beginner, 1st year Japanese course)
-Youth program at university (grade 8-12 students)
-Private tutoring (various ages and levels, custom made classes for each learner such as preparation for JLPT, conversation based class, etc.)

Furthermore, I used to work at the private company in Japan so I am familiar with Japanese business etiquette and language in business settings. If a learner wishes, I can cover those topics in my class.
