Certified ESL teacher with 12 years of experience teaching English in Japan

Methodology

My teaching method is highly supportive and task-based. I believe that students perform and learn most effectively when they can set and reach personal goals. A typical lesson starts with a warm-up conversation to introduce the topic, followed by introducing and practicing the necessary vocabulary and grammar with plenty of opportunity to use the language in real-life practice scenarios.

Background

I am a native English speaker with a bachelor's degree in psychology, as well as an ESL certification. I taught English to children and adults in Japan for 12 years. I have taught hundreds of students in a variety of capacities, from casual conversation to business training for nuclear power technicians to train in the USA.

Rates
