My journey

I taught English for two and half years before I decided to leave the inspiring views of Mt. Fuji to embark on a transformational journey to the United Kingdom, via South East Asia, Central Asia and Europe.

I wanted to experience local cultures, lifestyles, and behaviours, so I backpacked through these regions. 


The beginning was challenging as I had to find a way of communicating with people, with whom I did not share a common language.

I continued my journey using gestures and simple phrases, and as time elapsed, I slowly absorbed the different cultures and I adjusted to the local lifestyles of the countries.

My teaching is strongly influenced by my cultural interactions in the past.

Let's grow together.
