    Let's learn English from a bilingual teacher at Yokosuka
    For returning children, it is possible to teach English while using Japanese. Currently teaching English conversation and examination English as a local instructor locally, I teach English conversation for adults, children and parents and children at cafe and online when I have time, and teach Japanese to foreigners happily. I will prepare teaching materials with me, but if you have it, it is okay to use it. Business English, interpreter, translation, bilingual education, school preliminary review, high school college entrance examinations, English exam, everyday English conversation, travel English conversation, friends' English conversation, etc. Many purposes I am afraid that you will assemble the lesson that is appropriate for each student, so I am happy if you feel secure. Lesson place will be Yokosuka Middle or Takeyama neighborhood, but please let us know as necessary consultation. Thank you for your consideration. V

    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.
