I've been teaching for years -- little kids, high school students, college students, Japanese professionals and retirees.
Japanese learners, welcome! I feel your pain. I took the college classes and learned how little they teach you. I somehow learned anyway -- did a dissertation on Japan and am now a professional translator. It took me many years of sweat and toil. I'll save you time and suffering by showing you what really works. (I'll also bring you to my wife and her friends. She says she taught me my Japanese -- judge for yourself!)
Worried about the SAT or GRE? There's no mystery to raising your score -- I've been trained in this, and I'll walk you through it in a few lessons, giving you manageable assignments to complete between sessions. I reduce test prep to four components: 1) time-saving tricks that allow you to relax and focus on the material; 2) mastering a small knowledge base and learning to see past traps in the questions to the piece of that knowledge base you need to find the answer; 3) building muscle memory that will keep you from freaking out in the test room; and 4) special tips to ensure that you peak on test day. Pay Kaplan a lot for long sessions with a bunch of students, or pay less for more with me.
Overwhelmed by a paper or research project? We'll break it down and get you in the driver's seat. I've been there, many times. Some great teachers showed me the way out,and I'll show you. Put your mind at ease. Need a grammar check? I'm the best -- it's that simple.
Do you want to improve your English? Have you tried expensive language schools? Why didn't they work? Because the teacher gave every student the same lesson! Every student needs a tailored approach; I study you to see how you learn, and then I design lessons only for you. Did a private tutor disappoint you? Why? Because the tutor knows how to talk, not how to teach. Try a real professional.
