Personal Description:

I’m an ESL teacher and freelance editor on Auckland’s North Shore. I specialise in working with ESL students to improve their academic English and writing skills. In addition to nearly four years’ teaching experience in Japan, I have also worked for over fifteen years as an editor on books and academic journals. I enjoy travelling, particularly in Asia, and I have visited over twenty countries. I speak Japanese, and I have recently started learning Korean. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and watching Asian dramas and movies.

Tutoring Experience:

I worked as an English teacher in Japan for nearly four years and have taught conversational and business English, as well as preparation lessons for IELTS and TOEIC. As an editor on academic journals, I have worked with non-native English speakers to prepare academic papers for publication, and I have also worked with university students to improve their English writing and editing skills, especially for essays and master's theses.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach in person and online, and offer both academic English and conversational English lessons. I work with ESL students to improve their English by using fun, effective lessons that build their confidence and understanding of how they learn best. In particular I combine my editorial and teaching experience to focus on students’ individual needs and interests, ensuring that students make rapid progress in achieving their goals.
