    About Me

    Hello everyone!

    I'm Jon, and I've been living in Japan for the past 5 years. I speak Japanese fairly fluently and right now I'm working semi full-time as an international Preschool teacher. I live in Shibuya, but work near Daikanyama station and Kikuna station. I have experience teaching all ages, from 3-80, I am TEFL Certified, and have been teaching English for 3 years.

    I take pride in the fact that I can help every one of my students reach their goals in language teaching. If you only want casual English, then I can put a heavy emphasis on teaching colloquialisms, whereas if you want business English, I can teach you how to listen and contribute to meetings.

    後は日本語もぺらぺらです。ということは、本物の初心者でも大丈夫なんです。現在の英語力気にしないで!^.^

    英語または日本語でぜひ連絡してください。

    よろしくお願いします!

Essay writing is a huge area of focus in my classes as well! Not only do I and my team work with exam instructors to get the most up-to-date exam requirements, but also provide to the student the most focused strategies that are EASY TO UNDERSTAND, FAST TO LEARN AND FOCUSED ON A PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH CURRICULUM.

This excludes the thousands of other students who have been able to secure university entries or who have qualified for top-notch jobs thanks to their newly-learnt English skills.

    English
    All of us were studying English at schools and universities. However, in some period of time we find out that we forgot almost everything we knew before. Someone can read and write yet, but afraid of speaking. Someone feel comfortable with books and TV, but get lost when he meet foreigners. Someone need English for Business. Someone doesn't understand these "amazing" English Tenses. Of course, there are people who have never learnt English and want to start from the very beginning. I can show you, that English language is not an invincible monster, and learning of the second foreing language is extremly interesting and useful process. During the lessons we will use work materials, listen audio, read books and periodicals, watch movies and speak, speak, speak...

    English, Biology and Genetics Private Tutoring in Tokyo
    Effective communication through speaking, writing and presentations are essential in Science and many other fields. I have taught biology and genetics, in a one on one, setting for several years. I have also begun to use these same skills to teach English. I prefer to use visual aids, creative worksheets and even meetings conducted at museums to help build a greater understanding of the subject.

    English for adults and students and business people
    Each of us is unique so after you tell me your needs we can work towards your objectives, as a team. Maybe you feel comfortable using a book or perhaps you prefer conversation and games. A friendly relaxed atmosphere helps and is good for both of us, unless you particularly need pressure to simulate an exam or workplace situation. Having also worked in Industry and Commerce in England, I can appreciate the various scenarios ! English is my mother tongue and I have a British sense of humour, so this combined with my experience and your desire to learn will be a recipe for your success !
