While at Doshisha University in Kyoto earning his bachelor’s degree and teaching license, Shuhei focused on Education in a multidisciplinary manner, including anthropology, policy, psychology, philosophy, and sociology. Over three years in Kyoto, he tutored 4th to 12th graders and volunteered in a public lower secondary school to help disadvantaged children by providing individual support in the classroom and organizing after-school study sessions. With a grant awarded, he also spent two semesters at the University of Helsinki to study Finnish educational policy and values. After teaching in a public primary school, he is now working on his M.S. in Education at the University of Helsinki where he explores education as a means to improve social justice. He is a Japanese educator who loves evolving with children through experience and conversation. This fall, Shuhei will be going back to Helsinki to continue his research on exploratory and collaborative learning.
