Personal Information:

My pedagogical interests include teaching various levels of Japanese, and focusing student attention on the acquisition of the four main language components of listening, speaking, writing, and reading. I also try to integrate cultural lessons in the classroom, such as contact with Japanese etiquette and other cultural traditions, and strongly support student efforts to study abroad in Japan.
