Hi there! I recently graduated from a masters program in German and Japanese and am very passionate about languages and just learning in general. I am constantly looking for something new to learn. While in the graduate program, I taught first-year German. I also have about three years experience teaching ESL and completed a teaching certificate for Teaching English as a Second Language (not state certified). Additionally, I currently work as an interpreter in the airline industry, so I am learning and practicing on a daily basis. One of the most important ingredients for language learning is motivation. My favorite aspects of teaching are helping students find their passion for language and to find efficient study methods that are fun. I can't wait to meet you!
