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.

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.

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).

My hobbies now are restoring classical German Porsche sports cars, raising tropical orchids in my greenhouse and collecting Pre Meiji-Period Japanese woodblock prints.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My teaching method can change depending on the need of each individual student.
