I use a method that makes you practice your speaking first, and I am not afraid to give correction and use correction. Then I help with any other needs, such as test taking or job related requests.
I have been teaching and managing teachers for over 20 years. I have taught hundreds of students in Japan and China. I am a strict, but fun and engaging teacher. I will help you improve your English!
Due to Covid I am only teaching online right now. But in the future will be able to travel or host students in my home.

University of Washington, Seattle Washington. BA English
Perfect! Cheryl is excellent teacher!!
I'm very satisfied with he lesson.
She needs help with natural fluent conversation. Otherwise her functional skill is quite high! A delightful student.
I met Cheryl in China Shanghai. When I feel English became a bottle neck to my career I searched internet to find a language training. Cheryl was my testing teacher. Her professional communication and training style impress me a lot. After that test I decided to study English there. She is a kind person and can find your real issue immediately. Then give clear instructions and practices a lot. What’s the most important, she is a coach not just a teacher. She built up my confidence to speak English. If you have any problems with English, find Cheryl, she can be your best choice!
Cheryl is my English teacher. I've learnt English from her for about two years. In the beginning, I could speak simple words and sentences only. But now, I have no troubles in communication with people. She is a professional and experienced teacher, she would try different teaching skills to help students understand.
