Highly qualified teacher/tutor in Honolulu can help you reach your English language goals.

Methodology

I use a student-centered approach which means that I design and implement a course of study that takes into account my student's particular needs and abilities. I encourage and support my students in a friendly, creative atmosphere. Research and practical experience has shown this to be the most pleasant and effective way to teach and learn.

Background

I earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy and went on to teach Philosophy, English and American Culture at several universities, including 4 in Japan. I have taught thousands of students at all ages and levels in classrooms and individual tutoring sessions.
