    About Me

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Don from Toronto, Canada and I am 24 years old. I am a kindergarten teacher at an international school who has arrived at Tokyo last year to teach English and explore this beautiful country.

    I love to teach English as it has proved to be very helpful when travelling and also fun to communicate. I am very happy here in Tokyo, every day discovering new places and things to do. Japan is an amazing country and I am fond of Japanese people.

    I offer fun conversation classes for English. The duration could be 60, 90 or 120 minutes, is up to you. We can arrange to meet in a bar/cafeteria or in my place.

    I live in Kita-ku, near Akabane Station (JR Saikyo Line) and work near Ikebukuro Station, but we can arrange to meet in a convenient place for both of us.

    My hobbies are basketball, reading, traveling, and listening to hip hop music.

    I am excited to meet you. Do not hesitate to contact me!

    Education

    Ryerson University: Bachelor's in Engineering
    My schooling can contribute to the work of a JET Assistant Language Teacher. The demanding engineering course load has helped me optimize my time management skills by balancing school and work. I have become an effective leader and strong communicator thanks to multiple group projects. Having been hired as a Project Manager for an introductory engineering course in Ryerson University, I lead the class, review students’ projects, and advise them on career/university inquiries. Being a fourth year student, I am viewed as a peer mentor, rather than just an authority figure. To successfully adapt the course material to best assist the students according to their learning styles has proved to be the most challenging and rewarding part of the job. The tailored lessons have resulted in a display of higher interests and performance. A position of guidance motivates me to help the students better understand an engineer’s impact in society while making a positive influence on their academic outcome.

    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 !

    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...

    Private English lessons (language, pronunciation, culture ...)
    Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance.

At the same time, I also took intensive English courses at a university in Florida and courses in modern language teaching. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

    Yen-Chun,
    Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
    Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

    Yolanda
    ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
    My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours to start with.
