English Conversation, ESL, Tokyo, Speaking Practice

Based in Tokyo, I've been teaching English for over two years now. I specialize in English conversation, and test prepping. I have experience teaching students ranging from ages 4 to 15, developing my own lesson plans to cater exactly to what my students need. My goal is to build confidence in my students to where they can speak English naturally.

Please do not be afraid if you cannot communicate smoothly in English. I should be able to communicate with you in Japanese (日本語を話せるよー). I like to be very casual, and calm during my lessons. It's not a strict atmosphere. Let's have fun and enjoy learning together :)

Extra information

It would be a good idea to bring a pencil and paper for note taking, or even your own computer.

English, jobs, careers, kids, teenagers, exam preparation
My focus is on the student's goals for English, short-term and long-term. Whatever your reason for studying- be it for a better job, a 'career up' , to pass an important exam or to enjoy traveling overseas, my job is to get you to your target as quickly and enjoyably as possible. Confidence, interest level and motivation are all vital. I do like to set a little homework-- however I will do all corrections in my own time for free so I am your 'homework partner'.

Professional English Lesson with a Native English Tutor
I have extensive experience working with adult Japanese professionals of several different levels in English grammar. During each session, I will create a document summarising the key points that were discussed—this is an invaluable revision tool. I frequently assist students in proofreading and editing essays, theses, dissertations, research papers and articles intended for professional and scholarly periodicals.

Learn Smooth Conversational or Business English Now!
I offer bother conversational and business type lessons, both of which are fully customisable by taking into account your interests, goals and field of expertise. My conversational lessons are for those who want to travel abroad, do homestays or just have a hobby. My business lessons focus on skills such as reporting, presenting and negotiating etc. Whether you are learning business or conversation, I believe that learning in a communicative way is much more important than worrying too much about grammar, so my lessons are taught in a very personable way which will have you getting your message across in no time, and then we can focus on that intricate accuracy later.

Private lessons in English for all levels.
I offer English language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the English language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in English language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in English more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)
