English - Conversation, Speaking and Accent Reduction
This class is mainly for students who already speak English, but who want to improve their speaking skills to another level. This is a good class for you if your job requires you to do presentations or public speaking in English, if you are an actor who wants to work in English or if you just want to speak better English to go for a trip abroad! Not only we can work on conversation to make you more fluent, but we can also work on Voice and Speech techniques to make your pronunciation, intonation and diction better. I will be using techniques professional actors use to make the story they are telling more understandable for the public. I am myself a Professional Actor, I have worked on stage in New York, doing Contemporary plays, Classical plays, including Shakespeare. Note: Although I can guarantee that your pronunciation of English will improve, it is unlikely that you will sound 100% like a native speaker of English. Usually people who learn a second language as an adult, cannot completely get rid of their accents. Books I use: Patricia Fletcher - Classically Speaking Edith Skinner - Speak With Distinction

Scientific English/ Academic English
Most of the inventions and scientific data published in English. Knowledge on scientific terms in English is necessary to understand those papers. If you need to publish the research work, most of the good journals are in English. In order to publish your work, need to write it in scientific way. As a post graduate student and an academic for over three years, I have published 20 research publications in English. Therefore I would like to help you with my experience and bring you to the top of the ladder.

Learn English with a native speaker for cheap イギリス人
Hello :) I am Shaun from the UK. I've lived in Japan about 2 years now and I am willing to help people learn English. My prices are low, simply due to the fact that I am doing this for fun. I actually work as a Software Engineer and have some spare time to teach. Perhaps you prefer a casual conversation or something more intensive like IELTS exam preparation. All of which I can provide and help with. I can even host homework online that you can access from anywhere. With notice I can also extend lessons. I would require my train ticket be reimbursed if I come to you. Hope to see you soon :) Thanks, Shaun

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 !

We would talk about life, hobbies, current events, art, to help you expand your vocabulary and become more at ease with day to day French and English.

I have given private English lessons for five years before moving to Tokyo, for people ranging from middle schoolers to retired people, and have seen great results from speaking freely. I also hold a 112/120 score on the TOEFL test, and an "English as a Second Language" diploma from Cambridge International. I am availble to meet up anywhere in Tokyo, let's pick a lively place to discuss the world around us!

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...
