Love English and World 英語や世界が大好き
Since my early days at Junior High School, I've loved English.

Business Background 職務経験
Over the course of 30 years, I've also worked for Preparatory school for study overseas (preparation for TOEFL/SAT/GMAT/GRE), an International humanitarian organization, an International organization, a publishing company and a university, dealing with foreign associates and customers.
Through various duties, which I was assigned in these work places, I've acquired experiences of communication, negotiation, interpretation, translation and also coordination in English with people of different backgrounds.
My responsibility for the past 7 years has been recruitment of human resources from overseas.
Through many years of study and work experiences, I've obtained the qualification of a Certified Psychologist in 2002 (License No 6964), and a National License of Guide Business (English/License No EN00741) in 1989, and I've also received a score of 955 on the TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication by ETS) in 2007.

I also like coffee, wine, movies, reading, and writing.
Some of the movies I loved most are Moonlight, Cast Away, Death in Venice, Slumdog Millionaire, Picture of Dorian Gray, and Final Destination series, especially 5 Final Dead Bridge (But, this doesn’t mean I am into horror movies.)
Once again, nice to meet you😊.
