Hi, I'm Keita, a senior student majoring physics in Komaba campus. As not so many people in Komaba campus are science-oriented,  I really really want to talk about science with you! So if you have ANY math, physics problems, let me share them with you. As well as physics, now I'm learning German because I will go to study abroad in Zurich, so anyone who can speak German or is learning German, let's have a conversation!

Hello! My name is Theo. I come from Indonesia and have been living in Japan for past 2 years. I enjoy delving myself into mathematics, but I also like physics and chemistry puzzles. As for math, number theory and linear algebra are my favorites! When it comes to spare time, I would dive into reading novels (To Kill a Mockingbird is my best-loved). Else, you will find me learning languages (my current goal is to joke in Chinese). Also, I practice some Japanese Sign Language moves in my circle.

Hi guys! I am Sadha from Indonesia. I am currently in 2nd semester at Natural Science Stream 1, and will major in Biotechnology and Chemistry. I have been living in Japan since the time when I still could barely speak Japanese, until I can now communicate in daily basis.
I often think that getting out of the comfort zone is the only way for the people to improve themselves. That is one of the reasons I came here to study. I believe some of you guys might have a similar opinion. However, living in a new environment is not an easy thing to do; there must be many problems you would face. But then, a human is a social being, one should not struggle alone. I am here, ready to help you as a GO tutor, if you have any problems. I cover some science or math problems, some cultural shock you experience, or even the procedure of paying bills. I would be honored to be able to help you. But actually, you are welcome to the GO Tutor desk without any problem; you can also chat casually about many things with us, as I am sure we do have a different background which is more than interesting to be shared. Remember, sharing is caring! I am looking forward to meeting you guys!

From trivial things in your daily lives, to parties and drinking places in Tokyo, I would be a perfect guide for you. Japanese traditional culture is also my speciality; I’ve learned Japanese Tea Ceremony for several years, have experience of demonstrating it during my exchange in Hong Kong last year. I would be a powerful engine for you to enjoy our marvellous city, Tokyo!

Hi! My name is Ryo.

I’m a 4th-year student majoring in International Relations in the faculty of Arts and Sciences. But my major, IR, is actually not my interest, to be honest ... I am mostly interested in sociology, especially gender and sexuality.

I've studied at the University of Washington for about a year as an exchange student last year. I speak Korean, in addition to Japanese and English. One of my hobbies is learning English accents; my favorite is the general Aussie one. I like sports, basketball and soccer, but I cannot play either for the time being, because I had the surgery on my knee three months ago. I’m looking forward to having a chat with you at the GO office!
