    English Conversation - Learn & Practice Natural English - Sound like a NATIVE!

    Hello!

    Thanks for checking out my profile. One of the best ways to learn English is through natural conversation, as this is how everyone learns as a child. As such, I would love to help you develop your communication skills through casual, natural conversation.

    Before booking a class, it would be good to chat about your goals and motivations (what you want to learn or improve) so that we can decide on a customized strategy tailored to your goals.

    Let's work together!

    About Me

    I recently came from Canada to study Japanese, so I know how hard it is to learn another language! While classroom learning can be useful, its important to practice speaking in real situations. As an English teacher I enjoy chatting with students and helping them learn how to communicate naturally!

    Interests: Travel, Cooking, Programming, Sports, etc

    Education

    I studied Finance and Economics in Canada. I graduated with an Honor's Bachelor of Commerce and Minor in Economics. Before university, I went to 11 different schools!

    Experience / Qualifications

    I worked in financial services for 2 years before moving to Japan. Currently I work as a part-time English teacher at a language school for adults in Tokyo.

    IELTS/English/CELPIP/Essays/Grammar/SPEAKING and every thing ever 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!
