I have taught ESL for many years in Japan, Taiwan and China. I have experience teaching in schools, language institutes and to private students one-on-one, with students of all ages. I'm happy to adjust my teaching style and curriculum to meet your needs. My time is flexible.

I like making study fun, so let's give it a try! Just give me a call.

Because I lived in Japan for more than 20 years I learned the language fluently, and so I also have experience teaching Japanese. I would love to teach you the Japanese language, as well as all about the culture and the country, etc.

I have also home-schooled my own children and have experience teaching them from elementary through high-school, so if you have need of a tutor for your children, please call me! Thank you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have taught English for many years, which included helping students prepare for their tests, be it ACT, SAT, TOEFL or IELTS.

Bible Studies

I have been a Christian missionary for 30 years in Japan, Taiwan and China. I have studied the Bible extensively on my own as well as by taking courses with the Christian Vocational College. I have taught Bible classes on numerous occasions throughout the years to children as well as adults, with good results.

Elementary (K-6th)

Besides being an English teacher for many years, I home-schooled my two children, (who are now in their 20's). Living in Asia for many years, I not only home-schooled my own children in all general subjects from kindergarten to 12th grade, but I helped educate the children of other staff members in the NGO I was working in. I believe due to these reasons I am qualified.

ESL/ESOL

I have taken TEFL courses, as well as in-house CELTA and DELTA style training courses at a premier Language Institute I worked at in Beijing, China.

Japanese

I lived in Japan for 28 years and learned the language fluently while there. I've taught Japanese to children, young people and professionals alike. I love teaching and have taught not only Japanese, but English as a second language, for more than 20 years in Universities, High Schools, Junior High, Elementary schools and to private students one-on-one. I love teaching and have a rich experience of teaching in a variety of situations and countries and can adapt my teaching style and material to meet the student's needs and interests.

Phonics

As an ESL teacher for more than 20 years I frequently had to teach my students the proper usage of English grammar. I've taught elementary school age children English which required basic grammar skills. I have also taught Junior High, High School and adult English, during which times I also needed to explain, teach and drill the students on English grammar.

Public Speaking

In Japan, Taiwan and China I regularly engaged in giving motivational talks to groups of young people and also to volunteers of various NGOs. In China as an ESL teacher I would give lectures and talks to large group classes (over 40 students per class)on a daily basis on a variety of subjects. I enjoy public speaking very much and consider it one of my skills.
In China I have taught courses on public speaking and giving presentations, to businessmen and women.

Reading

I have taught English for many years, including reading, writing, composition, phonics, vocabulary, and pronunciation. I've had years of experience teaching children as well as adults.
