English

I have over 9 years English teaching experience in Japan and I have a TESOL qualification to ensure I can give you the best quality lessons.

I've taught private lessons, group lessons and both conversation and business English. Whatever you want to study, I can help you or your child.

ESL/ESOL

I am a qualified English as a second language teacher and I have a TESOL certificate.
I also have over 9 years' experience teaching English in Japan.
I've taught in conversation schools, company classes and private lessons.

I can prepare lessons to meet your needs.

Public Speaking

For over 6 years I taught Japanese business people and university students public speaking skills while working as a language specialist in Japan. I've conducted 3 day presentation skill seminars covering topics such as: presentation structure, eye contact, strategic gestures/body language and effective use of voice.

My university degree emphasized public speaking skills as a way of selling creative ideas to clients. I've been using these public speaking skills throughout my time as a trainer and business professional.

Speech

For over 9 years I taught Japanese speakers how to pronounce English words with English pronunciation. I can explain how to use your tongue and the shape of your mouth to make natural English sounds. The exercises and tongue twisters I can introduce will help make learning speech and pronunciation an enjoyable experience.
