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.

Conflict management & negotiation: communication support for effective and sustainable control
It is a question of putting in place rational and professional tools to defuse conflicts and enter your comfort / security zone. In particular simple and logical techniques, which make it possible to resolve and manage violent situations in a harmonious, efficient and lasting way. The objectives are: 0. Understand and identify the issues / risks then find a balance between empathy and conviction 1. Use interpersonal communication techniques resulting from mediation to defuse tensions and gain distance 2. Dissociate the relational and the nature of the disagreement - Overcome cognitive and psychological obstacles 3. Acquire the techniques of self-defense and mastery without hurting and being injured 4. Face and then defuse difficult behaviors (blackmail attempts, threats, destabilization) or even dangerous with a mediation strategy 5. Develop conflict management and negotiation skills by alternating attentive listening, active speaking and rationality in the face of the limited rationality of the angry individual. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Using easy and simple audio-linguistic exercises, I help each student at his level to progress quickly in conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar, in the form of a friendly and warm exchange. The important thing is that the student dares to speak and becomes confident in his way of expressing himself in French and of acquiring the new bases. My method is based on an experience and practice of more than 30 years, of students of all nationalities to help them according to their aptitudes to integrate the French language and to appreciate it. Conversation, reading, grammar and vocabulary exercises, from articles or texts, according to the needs and wishes of each. Being a voice pose teacher, I also offer to learn songs or nursery rhymes for children.

German Conversation. Improve your German conversation skills.
I am a native German speaker. The idea is to build your confidence in speaking German. Learning a language is all about communication and building your confidence in using the vocabulary which you have already acquired. Although it is important to learning vocabulary and grammar, it is also very important to improvise with the knowledge that you already have. Improvisation allows communication thus improving your confidence in speaking.
