Greetings potential students!
Helping people learn is a passion of mine. My main subject areas are English/ESL and Japanese. As a language tutor, my goal is to give students confidence in listening, speaking, writing and understanding their target language. I have taught English to Japanese students in Japan, and I have experience tutoring American students in Japanese.
I believe learning should be both interactive and enjoyable, so I do not solely rely on textbooks and handouts when teaching. I like to use visual aids, games, and real-world examples to facilitate learning, making it a more relevant experience for the student. I love teaching, and I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed!
I specialize in teaching English to adults, mainly to non-native English learners.
I myself have studied several foreign languages throughout my academic career. Doing so has given me useful insight into the most effective methods of learning and teaching a second language. I have also had the opportunity to live in a foreign country (Japan), so I am quite aware of all the challenges that come with trying to communicate on a daily basis in a language different than your own.
While in Japan, I taught English to Japanese students of various ages. Through this experience I was able to understand the unique difficulties of learning English from a Japanese perspective. When teaching English to a non-native speaker, I try to remain aware of my student’s linguistic background. This helps me recognize specific areas where a student might have difficulty expressing his/her thoughts in English. I believe having this sort of sensitivity makes me an effective ESL teacher.
Always patient! — Aimee does a wonderful job of feeling out Jude and his "emotional state" of the day and does a good job of tweaking the assignment to get him to perk up. Jude always has a fun time with Aimee and I can't believe how much he already knows. Incredible! ...
