Introduction:

I specialize in Eiken interview preparation, pronunciation, and natural conversation strategies.

Hello! My name is Dan, and I am from America. I have a TESOL certification and I have been teaching English in Japan for over 20 years. I am familiar with difficulties many Japanese have when learning English. I am happy to teach pronunciation, grammar, and communication strategies. Also, I specialize in helping students prepare for the Eiken interviews.
Outside of class, I really enjoy going outside and getting some exercise. Whether it is hiking in a forest or taking a photo walk in the rice fields, I love being immersed in the sights and sounds of nature. The Japanese countryside is perfect for me.
If you are interested in learning or simply want to practice your English, feel free to schedule a lesson.
I hope to see you soon.

I am very familiar with the English sounds Japanese have difficulty with. I have helped many students become more natural sounding.

I teach students grammar through easy to understand and proven techniques.
