I was born in London, England. I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. I worked for two years in Hokkaido, Japan as an ALT (Assistant Language Teacher). I love travelling around the world, cooking, listening to music, playing video games, reading books, and meeting new people. Please feel free to bring your favourite drink to the lesson, and let’s enjoy a fun and relaxed conversation! I can’t wait to meet you!
イギリスのロンドンで生まれました。 南アフリカのヨハネスブルグで育ちました。 日本の北海道でALT（アシスタントランゲージティーチャー）として2年間働きました。 世界中を旅し、料理をし、音楽を聴き、ビデオゲームをし、本を読み、新しい人と出会うのが大好きです。 お気に入りのドリンクを持ってきて、楽しくリラックスした会話を楽しみましょう！ お待ちしております！
I have spent lots of time in different English-speaking countries. So, I'm familiar with phrases and vocabulary that are unique to each region. I can teach you more useful and natural vocabulary and phrases to sound like a native speaker!
As in ALT in Japan, I assisted students in preparing for the Eiken. I have experience with the requirements and expectations of this test.

教育学 › English Language (学士)
I worked as a High School Teacher for a native English-speaking high school. During this time, I also worked as a voice coach and coached students in the following skills: accent production, accent reduction, singing, acting skills, voice projection.
I worked in Hokkaido for 2 years as an ALT (assistant language teacher). I worked in Junior High Schools and eikaiwa (adult English conversation class). I really enjoyed my time in Japan and I believe that studying Japanese has improved my skill in teaching English. I understand that it's difficult to learn a new language, so I can teach English from the view of a language-learner.
