About Me

Hello, nice to meet you. My name is scot. I am from the United States living close to Mitaka and Kichijoji. I have been living in Japan for over 16 years. I have taught every age from children of 4 years to seniors. Most of my experience is teaching Elementary, Junior and Senior High students. I have also taught Business English for corporations such as Kawasaki, Norichukin Bank, and Marubeni as well as government agencies Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Nuclear Regulatory Authority. I love travelling and experiencing new cultures. One of my favorite things about teaching English is meeting new people and helping them improve their knowledge and skill in communicating. I feel that communicating in another language can help everyone in understanding the world and the many ways of living.

Introduction to Accounting for first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors
I have prepared a multi-lesson package for new accounting students discussing & unraveling the importance & relevance of accounting, as well as removing the mystery from accounting. I developed this multi-lesson series for a parent who wanted their student to become intimately familiar with accounting before university classes began. I have revised it to become both a necessary and handy primer for the non-accounting major. It is my perennial favorite to teach both first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors – at the request of both the student or parent!

Learn English Efficiently: Customized Lessons (CELTA Certified)
Hi, my name is Jenni and I am a bilingual native speaker of English and Finnish. My English accent is British and my Finnish has a very neutral accent. I am a CELTA certified English teacher and have been teaching English full-time since 2014 in countries such as Ireland, China and Japan. I have taught both adults and children in private lessons as well as groups. My students have been everything from business professionals to teenagers preparing for their exchange year abroad to young children having their first contact with a foreign language. My greatest strength as a teacher is my experience from using different methods of teaching as well as different levels of students. I customise all my lessons to my students’ needs. Whether you are just beginning to learn English or already have a high level of English and are looking to keep up your skills or perhaps master a grammar point, I am confident I can help you achieve your goal. As a teacher I will customise each of our lessons to your needs and wants. Usually this means that I will assess your level of English during our first lesson. Then by asking you specific questions I find out more about why you are studying English and what is the goal you wish to achieve.We will also together decide what kind of materials (if any) we will use during our lessons. All of this I do so I know how to help you achieve your personal goal. A happy student makes a happy teacher! I look forward to our lessons!
