    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!

    IELTS/English/CELPIP/Essays/Grammar/SPEAKING and every thing every needed for ESL!
    Over 16 years now, my students have been passing their English/ESL exams and have been able to tremendously improve their English skills to the point where they are able to now speak like Western native speakers! 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. I myself have scored 8.5 in IELTS and have helped my students achieve maximum scores as well: IELTS: 9 band (over a hundred cases) TOEFL: 120 points (56 cases) SAT: Full marks (45 cases) CELPIP: 12/12 (over 300 cases!) 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. Likewise, these successes are the reasons why I love my job and continue teaching. Every day, I work hard towards achieving student results. The very moment they pass and thank me is something I live for day and night! With my TEFL certification, 15 years of experience, work with examiners, professional training for English teaching skills, background of working with students from all backgrounds, and most importantly DOCUMENTED TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES, I am sure that your requirements for your next learning venture will be guaranteed and pleasing!

    Native English Tutoring - Relaxed, Conversational Japanese Lessons
    This class is for people looking to improve their English language skills with a native English speaker. The focus is on conversational English, although I am happy to help write and review homework, coursework, essays, etc. Although I am not a qualified teacher, I have had experience teaching English in Hong Kong to younger children and I have been learning Japanese myself - so I understand the difficulties of learning a foreign language. I am happy to go through textbooks, class work and other sources, or we can plan our classes together to make sure we cover all topics you would like to review. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
