Hi, I’m Nicole Yoshihara! It’s nice to meet you. I graduated with my BA degree in Business Administration and Japanese. I have 180 hour TEFL/TESOL certifications. I have over 4 years of experience tutoring English to international students from around the world from beginner to advanced levels at Kaplan language school, in Japan, and through cultural exchanges. I have studied abroad in Tokyo, Japan for one semester. A fun fact about me is I am half Mexican and half Japanese. I am also an American and a native English speaker. I love to learn about different languages and cultures. I have loved school ever since Kindergarten. I believe education is very important and reading is an essential component of learning. I enjoy reading and I look forward to working with the students and to helping them on their reading journey.
