Versatile and well-traveled teacher wanting to help you expand your worldview!

Hello, everyone!

If you are searching for a fun way to learn English with an experienced, trained teacher, please keep reading!

- You are my perfect student if:
- You want a teacher who focuses on your needs and personalizes lessons for you.
- You want to learn English through natural use, avoiding outdated textbook grammar
- You want to focus on accent reduction
- You want to better express your emotions in English
- You want to use English to learn about the world (travelling, or from your own home)

Facts about me
I was born and raised in the United States
I have lived in Japan for 5 years
I am professionally trained in theater, speech, and diction
I have a psychology degree and studied foreign language acquisition
I have travelled to 40+ countries

I believe that even though learning a language should be challenging, it should be fun and relaxed. I don’t believe in an intensive and stressful class setting. I would like our lessons to feel like you’re going in talking to a friend at a cafe, and at the end you come out with new abilities.

If you have an English speaking test, presentation, or speech, I can work with you to help you gain confidence and do your best!

I am TEFL certified, have diction and speech training, and have worked as an ESL teacher for 5 years ( including one online ). I have taught from elementary school students to senior adults. I believe anyone at any age can improve their English skills.

I hope we can enjoy our classes together!

Teaching Specialty:

Kids › All Ages

I am an experienced elementary school teacher. Before booking a lesson for your child, please message me so we can discuss learning goals!

English Basics › Accent Reduction

I understand what sounds are difficult for Japanese people to make, such as R vs L, and the ci sound in city.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

Helping people learn how to communicate with one another is one of my ultimate passions in life. With English, we can learn about the world together. I am a very versatile teacher who can cater to any need you have. I follow the rule 70/30, meaning you speak 70-80% of the lesson, and I speak 20-30%.

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

I am professionally trained in pronunciation and diction, and I am very skilled in helping my students to make sounds that don't exist in their mother tongue. This is also extremely helpful for speaking tests, IELTs, and public speeches!
