    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...

    Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
    Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

    Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 25 years of experience.
    ***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
