Teaching Professional
I worked in Hokkaido for 2 years as an ALT (assistant language teacher). I worked in Junior High Schools and eikaiwa (adult English conversation class). I really enjoyed my time in Japan and I believe that studying Japanese has improved my skill in teaching English. I understand that it's difficult to learn a new language, so I can teach English from the view of a language-learner.
Certifications:

TESOL
I completed a 120 hour in-contact TESOL course. The final grade was assessed by observed practical classes with real English as a second language learners. I enjoyed this course a lot, and I believe that it helped me to improve my English-teaching skills by a lot.
