Since 2012, I have been managing a dynamic book of business ranging from adults, youth, and companies throughout Central Ohio. Primarily, these students have been from Japan wanting to improve their English for the Workplace, English for Life, Test Preparation, or English in General. From 2010-2012, I founded the Intensive English Program at Ohio Dominican University, thus becoming a head-to-head competitor with the Ohio State University. My teaching experience ranges from teaching in the public school system in Japan to teach at the university level in the US. In addition to my seven years of teaching experience of the subject English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), I also will have my alternative teacher's license for the state of Ohio in Business Education by February 2018. I have been an Adult Permit holder for ESOL in the state of Ohio since 2014.
