I moved to the United States from Japan in 2022 and started teaching Japanese at WCU in 2023. I received my bachelor’s degree in English and Japanese from Dalian University of Foreign Languages and earned my master’s degree from Kyushu University in Japan. I am interested in combining Japanese culture into all class levels to promote students’ interest in Japanese language.
I teach all levels of Japanese classes and currently work on implementing Japanese pitch accent teaching into beginning level classes.
