Uwa is an exceptional tutor. With patience, easy to understand explanations, and an intuition for what works, Uwa is able to keep my daughter engaged in maths and, more importantly, improve her skills in the subject.
Very helpful lesson for our son!
*Online classes are available* I have over twenty years of experience in math tutoring. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Telecommunications Engineering. I also have a Masters in Financial Mathematics and a B.Sc Pure Mathematics. I teach Math using my self-propounded model which has a success rate of 100% for my clients. I am particularly interested in students who find Math difficult. My goal for my students includes: 1. Engage students to use Math in real-life scenarios. 2. Keep students challenged to learn and apply Math in day to day life. 3. Increase their critical thinking and capabilities. Using Mathematics and analytical mind, I won a Scrabble tournament in 2014.

Enjoy English Learning
Any language can be learned by making mistakes and then correcting them. I am an amicable person and can be that guide who helps you to understand the language better. My classes would have fun games, talk about movies, sports, culture, music but only in English. I will ask many questions about your culture and your hobbies so that we can understand each other and have a amicable atmosphere for learning.

Tiago
English or Portuguese conversation sessions in Tokyo
Hi! I'm Thiago. Let's meet at a cafe or at your place for a conversation! I was born in Argentina but lived in Brazil since I was 3. I studied English for more than 10 years in Brazil, after that I went to California to improve my English speaking skills, as well as to increase my vocabulary. I'm happy to be able to share my language skills with you! English is an essential language to thrive on the global world we live on. Speaking good English can open many doors, as a new job, a promotion, traveling with ease, among many other advantages. I also teach Portuguese for the same price!

Christopher
English conversation classes : speak like a true Brit
Hello! Hola! Привет! My name is Christopher and I’m a British person with a passion for languages (yes, it can happen…) Whether you’re a beginner or a decent speaker looking to broaden your horizons, 

I will help you better express yourself in English. I offer friendly informal classes, with a focus on conversation and pronunciation. 
I can also help you with grammar and vocabulary and all the technical stuff.
 Together we’ll develop a study plan which suits your needs. And along the way, we’ll explore the weird and wonderful world of British culture.

 With over twenty years in advertising, I’m an expert communicator in English. 
I’m bilingual (French) and have studied Dutch, Spanish and Russian, so I have a good feel for the learning experience. Together with my teacher training, I hope to apply these skills towards helping others. 

I firmly believe that good communication can make the world a better place. 

Hope to see you on Skype sometime soon :)

Practice your English or Italian conversational skills.
Have you been learning a language for some time, but still have problems when it comes to talking? I'm an Italian-Japanese mothertongue that is also very fluent in English, here to help you practice :-) I can come to teach you anywhere along the shonan-shinjuku line (the closer to Omiya the better) or near the centre of Tokyo. A personal request to keep the conversation going would be to please think out something you would like to talk about during the lesson (hobbies etc.). I can also help you with your writing if needed, so please feel free to bring any texts and books along during the lesson. Happy to make your acquaintance.
