I am a 25-year-old Japanese major in my senior year at Portland State University, and I spent last year studying abroad in Hokkaido, Japan. I am a smiley person who enjoys working with others to help them reach their full potential. I try to encourage students to ask questions and try new concepts for themselves. I love Karaoke, pepperoni pizza, and good soft music.
I volunteered for six months when I was over in Japan teaching English once a week to 4 separate classes. Their ages ranged from 6 months in the first class to 11 years in the last. I've tutored fellow students, siblings and friends in various subjects over the years, mostly in English and basic math, but recently I have also been helping some of them with Japanese conversation and grammar.
