About me

I'd like to be humble, honest, sincere, trustworthy, and straightforward.

Teaching English is my lifework, I'm so grateful that I can do what I like to do.

I like reading, writing, watching movies, walking, and traveling.
Once a week, I play tennis and study calligraphy.

My favorite old saying is "Treasure every meeting, for it will never recur".
