I came from Canada as an exchange student to study at Sophia University for a year. While here, I chose to continue doing what I had been doing a bit of in my own country; I began tutoring people in English. As a business student, I know what it takes to succeed in an academic environment linguistically, but moreover I just have a passion for language. It's been a pleasure being able to share that passion with students from so many different demographics within Tokyo, and I feel that each of my students has shown a marked improvement in their ability to use English effectively. I had worked as a waiter for three years in Canada, so I am good at dealing with and talking to people I don't know on a daily basis, and I try to use that experience to enhance my lessons for my students.
