Hi, my name is Colleen Hollis.
My mom is Japanese and my father is American. I was born in Tokyo, Japan but raised in Texas. My first language is English, however, I understand and can speak some Japanese. I can read kana (hiragana and katakana) and I can read elementary kanji.
I have been helping Japanese students since I was in elementary school because my mom was a member of the Houston Japanese Association and the Dallas Japanese Association. When Japanese families would move to USA, I would help their children with conversational English.
I will do my best to help you with fluency in speaking, grammar, and idioms.
Since I am half Japanese, we can discuss Japanese topics or American topics. My favorite foods are natto and sushi. Some hobbies that I enjoy are origami, scrapbooking, knitting and crochet. I was a real estate agent for 10 years, so we can also practice business etiquette and business conversation.
