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You want to learn English through natural use, avoiding outdated textbook grammar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)
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!
I am an experienced elementary school teacher. Before booking a lesson for your child, please message me so we can discuss learning goals!
I understand what sounds are difficult for Japanese people to make, such as R vs L, and the ci sound in city.
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%.
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!
