I received NYS certification in "English to Speakers of Other Languages" on 9/1/2000. Since that time, I taught ESL at the high school level for the East Ramapo Central School District, taught at an international public high school in New York City, and worked with adult learners in English Conversation classes at the White Plains public library.
I received NYS certification in "Japanese 7-12" and also received the NYS "Japanese N-6/Pre K-6 Extension" on 2/1/2002. I have been teaching Japanese primarily at the high school level but also at the elementary and middle school level since 1995. I also tutor private students.
