Conversational English language lessons designed to assist beginners through to advanced-level students

My class is for anyone wishing to improve on their English language skills. My goal is to help students gradually develop confidence with using everyday English and my classes will be tailored to the individual needs/wants of every student. I specialise in conversational practice, but can also assist students wishing to focus on reading, grammar and pronunciation. I am also happy to design homework tasks that are suitable for what every student is hoping to achieve.

About Me

I was born in the UK and moved to Australia with my family when I was five years old.

After spending the past five years working at The University of Sydney, I decided to move to Tokyo for a change of environment and a completely new experience. I speak Japanese conversationally, and currently, receive private Japanese lessons three times per week.

I'm particularly interested in photography, English literature, sports (cycling and football) and education.

Education

In 2013 I graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications) degree. I studied English Literature, Modern History and Gender Studies as my electives.

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught a wide range of students over the past ten years, in both English language and English literature classes and 1:1 environments.

-I taught English literature and writing classes for elementary and junior high school level students at a private education college in Sydney, Australia, from 2012-2016. This included test preparation classes, and 1:1 English language tuition for students with beginner/intermediate English.

-I have also worked for two years as a private academic tutor for high school and university students, specialising in English Literature and History.

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'.

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.

Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
* Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.
