About Multi x Education

The name “Multi X Education” comes from the concept of providing the education services to the community making the best use of my multi-skilled, multi-lingual and multi-cultural life style. Formerly my service was called “Animal x Education” deriving from my two university majors (Zoology and Education), but over the years my focus has expanded from the nature-related education to cultural understandings, then to accepting personal uniqueness. While continuing my community involvement with language education, origami, music and other cultural activities here in Cairns, now I would also like to extend my service to the young people in Japan, sharing my unique life experiences as a stimulus and send some messages that they may need.

The service fee will depend on the amount of work and time required for it, but approximately AU$45-60/hour would be what I’d expect. Please contact me to discuss.



Please feel free to discuss about other kinds of work that are not on the above list, as long as the work is something related to my background and experiences.
