I taught English as a foreign language in Japan for five years. I have taught English as a second language to adults in Santa Clara County for twenty-five years. As far as English for speakers of other languages, I know how to deal with communication barriers that someone may be having due to limited vocabulary, difficult pronunciation or a low confidence level. I also taught Japanese as a foreign language for three years, Drama for two years and English for one year for the Campbell Union High School District. I have tutored elementary school, middle school and high school students in reading (for fluency and comprehension), math, history, Spanish and Japanese. All of this experience enables me to work with students of all ages in a multitude of subjects. My goal is always to help each individual I work with to reach his or her highest potential.
