Personal profile

Joined Coto around 2 years ago. In early teens, lived in Jordan in the middle east; has experience working in childcare while living in Shenyang, China. Developed a love for many different cultures due to living in various countries around the world. Also enjoys traveling within Japan – has visited all prefectures.

Personal statement

I know there are many difficulties that come with living in an unknown country. Just like how I remember the difficulties and joys of learning a foreign language, I want to help my students experience that same feeling of “I know this!” when it comes to learning Japanese. I want to my students to enjoy learning to that point that every week they are excited for my Japnese lessons. My Chinese language teacher used to teach me words and their meanings through history, and that has resonated with me ever since. I want to be able to teach more than just “words”.
