About Me

I recently moved from Fukui to Kyoto to study Japanese at a language school. I love living in this fascinating country. In my free time, I enjoy reading, sports, music, as well as keeping up with political affairs.

Teaching in London as a private tutor led to me applying to teach abroad in Japan. While in London, I assisted students who struggled with essay and creative writing, reading comprehension, and middle school level science and maths. In Japan, I have taught both English and essay writing skills. I also have experience preparing students for EIKEN and university interviews.

As a tutor, my patient and calm manner as well as my ability to convey complex ideas in simple terms has helped students under my tutelage achieve significant growth as well as overcome weaknesses.

Education

University of Toronto - Political Science Specialist

IB - English, History, Economics, Latin Biology, Maths

Experience / Qualifications

2 years as a private tutor in London
3 years experience as an English teacher in Japan (JET programme)

My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language.

Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible!
