While working in Japan for 3 years, I turned some of the most unmotivated students, from elementary school through high school, into students who would participate in class, go out of their way to practice English with me outside of class, and achieve high scores on their entrance exams. Now that I am back in my hometown of Chicago I want to continue to help students excel in reading, writing, ESL, and prepare them for tests such as ACT, SAT, and TOEFL. I am fluent in Japanese and passed the fluency N2 exam for Japanese. I may not be a native Japanese speaker but if you are interested in learning about this unique and beautiful language I can certainly teach it to you. Through my own journey of learning the language I know what works and the best curriculum for a native English speaker to learn this challenging language.
