- Born in Nagasaki City
- In 1993, the experience of exchanging letters in English with a Swedish pen pal opened my eyes to the magic of language and communication, and inspired me to become a Japanese teacher.
- In 2001, I taught Japanese for the first time at elementary and junior high schools in New Zealand for 8 months.
- In 2003, while undertaking studies in Japanese language teaching pedagogy and social psychology at graduate school, I gained invaluable experience teaching Japanese to the international students.
- In January 2018, I establishedKotoba Salon TSUMUGI.
Over the years, I have taught Japanese to people of all nationalities and from a diverse range of backgrounds, including housewives, technical interns, trainees, ALTs, foreign language teachers, businessmen, elementary school students, high school students, and international students.
Aside from creating lessons that incorporate elements of psychology and providing counseling services to students, I continue to conduct research into teaching methodologiesand integrate my learnings into my work.
Currently, I am working as a part-time teacher at Kwassui Women's University and Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies, where I teach Japanese to international students.
At TSUMUGI, we have developed a series of popular online Japanese lessons specifically targeted at helping moms and dads deal with the unique challenges that come with raising children in Japan.
