EducationUniversity of Iowa - Bachelors, Japanese Language and Literature
ExperienceI earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa in Japanese language and literature. During my studies I also focused on creative writing and poetry. I invested a great deal of time and effort in a variety of poetry workshops which gave me the opportunity to study with one of the country's leading creative writing professors. I further spent a year in Nagoya, Japan, studying Japanese at Nanzan University.
Upon graduation I began working as a scorer of standardized exams and as a tutor. I currently tutor a variety of subjects, including Japanese, reading, writing, essay editing, phonics, literature, English grammar and syntax, IB extended essay, IB film HL and SL, IB world religions SL, AP human geography, languages, English, art, social studies, elementary school reading, and elementary school writing. I also help students prepare for upcoming standardized exams such as the ACT.
I have extensive experience in working with language learners and in all forms of writing. I enjoy bringing my experience to my students to help them develop their own authentic voice and writing style. I know how powerful the written word can be when it is used effectively and it is a joy to help my students improve their skill and gain confidence in their ability.
