Profissão: professional proofreader and copy editor; social media line editor and American culture consultant; ESL teacher
Experiência de ensino: I am currently working as a proofreader and copy editor. I ensure that my clients' writing projects do not have any grammar errors and that the final draft uses clear, native English.
Before that, I was an English teacher in Japan working with students aged 5-16 and doing private tutoring and conversation lessons with adults. As a tutor and instructor, it's important to know how to apply tricky grammar rules and be able to explain them clearly, all while making English learning fun!
Interesses: I love traveling and experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, and--most importantly--trying new food!
I've gone zip-lining in the Caribbean, walked under the orange torii gates in Kyoto, and fed kangaroos in Australia.
I studied zoology in college, so I'm passionate about animals (my favorite is the snow leopard) and nature. I enjoy hiking, swimming, camping, and I am currently learning how to rock climb.
I also love books! My favorite series is Harry Potter :)
