Hello! I'm a Los Angeles resident where I have taught English, written books & acted. I have lived in four countries, seven states & 13 cities. Yes, that's a lot of moving! I have worked in advertising, hotels, with children & adults at language schools in Japan & Los Angeles & performed comedy. Now, I'm taking ALL those experiences & creativity & channeling them into online lessons for English students of all ages. I try to make students feel relaxed by using humor in our lessons. A smiling & laughing student is a comfortable & talking student. I prefer chatting about positive things & am an EXCELLENT role play partner because of my acting background. I miss Japanese festivals, the fall leaves, eating okonomiyaki, goya & drinking cold nama biru while watching Tamori-san host Music Station. Tanoshimou! I look forward to helping you grow your abilities. Let's chat so we can both learn something!
