Helping you speak the language of your heart

Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Maya, and I am thrilled to tell you a bit about myself. I was born in Japan and spent my childhood between Japan and the United States. I spent my early years and the initial part of my professional career in the US. I earned a degree in TESL and started teaching English as a second language, a field I have relished for over 18 years. In the process, I discovered my love for languages and obtained a degree and Japanese national license in Speech-Language-Hearing-Pathology. As a licensed speech-language pathologist, I have been helping people with communication disorders for the past 8 years. With more than 10 years of experience in proofreading and translation, I have refined my abilities as a language expert. I am also fluent in Spanish (DELE B2) and currently studying for the C1 level, while also learning Italian and Portuguese.

Being a lifelong learner, I always aim to improve myself and broaden my knowledge. I am a kind-hearted person who truly cares about others and their achievements. One of my passions is triathlon, and I was proud to become a national champion in my age group for sprint triathlon in 2022. Training for triathlons imparts valuable lessons about discipline, determination, and goal-setting, which I apply to every aspect of my life.

Thank you for considering my services, and I eagerly await the chance to work with you.
