Personal Description:

I grew up in Japan, and have worked there for 1 year, and 2 years in Taiwan, so I have a good command of Japanese and Mandarin. I have the advantage of having mastered them as a foreign language for myself, so I know from experience what problems people have, and how to overcome them.

I enjoy spending time with people, teaching, and passing on whatever knowledge I have, helping them improve their potential.

Tutoring Experience:

3 years teaching teaching Japanese and Chinese to students at a public school and one-to-one, from 5 years old to adult and business people, up to GCSE, AS, and A2. I have also taught some lessons for the Japan Foundation in London.
Other teaching experience.
1 year teaching in a Senior High School in Japan
2 years teaching in a Language school in Taiwan.
2 months teaching in Brighton.
2 years teaching one to one English.
Over 10 years as a language learner, so I have been in your shoes, and can share the innovative techniques and memorization methods I’ve used.

Tutoring Approach:

I will help you with your reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and have tricks to help you remember the written scripts.
With years of experience teaching foreign languages, I tailor your lessons to your needs, learning style, interests, and goals. I use varied resources, activities and role-plays allowing maximum participation, and an enjoyable, and effective learning environment.

Please contact me for more information, or more testimonies.
