During our first lesson, I will be very happy to get to know you! I will ask you about yourself things like: hobbies, favorite things, and passions. After, I will ask you about your learning goals with English. Why are you studying English? What is your history with studying English? What would you like to improve?

Teaching Specialty:

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!
