Personal statement

“I teach Japanese with a focus on beginners.  My Goal is to create an engaging lesson that the students can easily remember.  I like to use my facial expressions and voice to create lasting memories for students so that they can easily remember the kanji and vocabulary that I am sharing with them.

When my students think of their experiences in Japan – I want them to think of Coto and all the fun that they had learning Japanese.”
