Hello everyone! My name is Monique and I am from New York City – yes, the city that never sleeps! In New York City, I was a teaching assistant and teacher mentor at Binghamton University and New School University, respectively. I also taught at a private language school and gave one-on-one English lessons. I studied abroad in Shizuoka Prefecture (日本大学) when I was in college, and am glad to be back in Japan as a member of the GTI team at TIU! When I’m not at work, I like to write original stories, listen to podcasts, and explore new areas (on my list is to visit all 47 prefectures in Japan). I can’t wait to meet all of you in the classroom or the English Plaza!
