Introduction:

35 Years of International Business Experience. 13 Years were spent in Japan.

Hi! My name is Mac White, call me Mac. I am from the state of Utah, which is very famous for its beautiful mountains and cowboy culture.
こんにちは!私の名前はマック・ホワイト、マックと呼んでください。出身は、美しい山々とカウボーイ文化で有名なユタ州です。

When I was not riding my horse, I was next door at my Japanese neighbor's house playing with their children. This family moved to my hometown from Japan when I was 11 or 12.
馬に乗っていないときは、私が11歳か12歳のときに日本から引っ越してきた隣人の日本人家族の家に、よく遊びに行っていました。

I loved eating at their house and they loved eating dinner at my house. The Japanese kids loved spaghetti, meatballs, deer steak, pizza, and hot dogs. At their house I loved eating Japanese pancakes (okonomiyaki) and fried noodles (yakisoba).
私たちは、お互いの家で食事をするのが大好きでした。日本人の子供たちは、スパゲッティ、ミートボール、鹿肉のステーキ、ピザ、ホットドッグが大好きでした。わたしは、お好み焼きや焼きそばを食べるのが大好きでした。 

My hobbies now are restoring classical German Porsche sports cars, raising tropical orchids in my greenhouse and collecting Pre Meiji-Period Japanese woodblock prints.
今の私の趣味は、クラシックなドイツ製ポルシェのスポーツカーを修復すること、温室で熱帯性の蘭を育てること、明治時代以前の日本の木版画を集めることです。

My experience / 私の経験:
During the last 25 years I have been a full time private English tutor. 90 % of my students are Japanese. I have taught over 50,000 lessons and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
私は過去25年間、フルタイムで英語の家庭教師をしてきました。生徒の90%は日本人です。私はこれまでに5万回以上のレッスンを担当してきましたが、そのすべてが楽しいものでした。

Before becoming an English teacher, I was an international business consultant for 35 years working in Middle East, Latin America and East and Southeast Asia.
英語教師になる前は、国際ビジネスコンサルタントとして35年間、中東、ラテンアメリカ、東・東南アジアで仕事をしてきました。

I lived in Japan and worked as a consultant for 13 years. Those 13 years were the most enjoyable part of my international business career.
私は日本に住み、13年間コンサルタントとして働いていました。この13年間は、私の国際ビジネスのキャリアの中で最も楽しい時間でした。

Teaching methods / 教え方:
The Japanese English students have two big problems with English. The first is pronunciation of words that include "TH", "L" or "R", I want to work with the students to help them improve their pronunciation. The second is no one can become fluent in English without knowing English Idioms and some of the most common idioms they need to learn are; "A piece of cake", "Spill the beans", "Tip of the iceberg" and many more.
英語を学習する日本人にとって、英語を学ぶ上で2つの大きな課題があります。1つ目は、"TH"、"L"、"R "を含む単語の発音です。私は生徒たちと一緒に発音を改善していきたいと思っています。2つ目は、英語のイディオムを知らずして、英語を流暢に話せるようになることはできないということです。

If the student gets in trouble understanding a word, a phrase or grammar. I am happy to explain in Japanese the corresponding meaning.
もし単語やフレーズ、文法を理解することが難しい場合は、対応する意味を日本語で説明させていただきます。

My teaching method can change depending on the need of each individual student.
私の指導方法は、生徒一人一人のニーズに合わせて変えることができます。
