I have over fifteen years experience as a Japanese language instructor. I have taught in a variety of contexts ranging from private students to weekly classes at the Rhode Island Japan Society to fifteen students at the Metropolitan Regional Career & Technical Center, a public charter school in Newport, RI.  Also I taught classes at the Boston Japanese Language School.  I currently conduct private lessons throughout Southern New England.
