Hi Everyone! My name is Dan and I’m originally from a small country town in New York State. I studied Writing & Journalism during my years as an undergraduate student at Ithaca College, and also worked as a teacher’s assistant during that time. After my graduation, I decided that I loved teaching and moved to Matsumoto City in the Nagano Prefecture for 4 years as an English instructor. Most recently, I graduated from the Second Language Studies program at the University of Hawaii, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to return to Japan as an instructor at TIU. I’m very much looking forward to meeting, teaching, and learning from my students.
