TEACHING STAFF

Todd Leroux (Boss)

I am a Canadian from Winnipeg, Manitoba. In Japan, I have lived with my wife for 17 years, and we have 10 cats. Yes, 10 cats. In my free time, I like cooking, having friends over for BBQs (before Covid-19), and during time by myself, I like watching YouTube videos. I have taught at Hakuoh University for 5 years now and hope it continues for many years to come. My dream is to live in a small house with a vegetable garden in the countryside with my wife and cats.

Daniel Hooper (Dan)

I am originally from the UK, but I have lived in Japan since 2005. I now live in Ashikaga, Tochigi with my wife, Mayu, and my two sons, Hayato and Takuma. I am really excited about being at Hakuoh and I am looking forward to helping the LC become a fun and comfortable place for you all to learn! My hobbies are kickboxing, weights training, and listening to heavy metal and punk rock! Please come and speak with me anytime!

Yuna

Hello, my name is Yuna Saito. I’m a senior and studying English Education. While studying at university, I have studied abroad in the U.S. for 7 months as an exchange student. After Hakuoh University, I’m going to go to graduate school to learn English Education more deeply. In my free time, I enjoy working out, exploring new places, doing various physical activities outside, and studying English. I think studying English is more than just learning the language itself. It’s also about connecting with people from different backgrounds, ages, and countries. So let’s chat together in English!
