I am a certified teacher of English, with an undergraduate diploma in Philology. My areas of expertise are in Linguistics (grammar and language structure) and in British and American literature and culture. My undergraduate education included teacher-training programs. I also have a double major, which allows me to understand and teach the English language at a deeper grammatical or structural level. I am also a PhD student of Japanese Linguistics at the University of Tsukuba. I believe that these important skills make for an effective teacher of foreign languages to Japanese learners.
