Personal Description:

I am a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge. I hold degrees from Kyoto University, Japan (MA, Distinction, Human & Environmental Studies, Linguistics) and from Cambridge University (MPhil, Distinction, Faculty of English) and PhD (Faculty of Modern & Medieval Languages). I research (full-time) and lecture (part-time) on topics related to language acquisition, speech sciences, and English and Japanese linguistics. I supervise undergraduate and graduate linguistics students as well as students from related disciplines. I offer professional service to students at various levels of their education. I thoroughly assess the individual needs of each student and will only take on a student when I am absolutely certain I can help him/her achieve his/her goal.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught English and Spanish as foreign languages in Japan at secondary and tertiary levels and to adult students. I currently teach undergraduate and MPhil students at the University of Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

I live in Cambridge so I am happy to teach one-to-one or seminar style to groups of 3 maximum. These could take place in a seminar room in St John's College or in a seminar room/my office at the University (Sidgwick site). I am also more than happy to give university advice to UCAS applicants, particularly those who wish to apply to Modern and Medieval Languages (MML) or the Faculty of English, Univ of Cambridge.

  • Faculty of English, University of Cambridge (2010) - MPhil (English and Applied Linguistics) (Masters) (✔ On File)
