About me

Hello! My name is Deep and I am from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  I have been in Tokyo for approximately 1.5 years and am absolutely loving it here so far.  I came to Japan to start a new adventure and while here, I learned that I have a passion for teaching people english.  I believe that having fun while learning a new language is very important, therefore,  when I teach, I like to make the lessons fun and interesting!  Hope to meet you all soon!  My CV is provided below, please feel free to have a look.
