Hello, my name is Doug. Magic is my hobby, but I've been a teacher and student. I taught English to junior high students in Japan for five years and did private tutoring there as well. I think learning should be fun as well as hard work. If you are unhappy, you won't enjoy studying, so I want to assure you that when we work together we will be focused and positive. (Maybe there will be a little time for magic as well!)
I am well-qualified to help you with English writing, especially grammar and structure. I can help you with basic math skills as well. I am also skilled at teaching English as a second language.

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.

English

I am a perfectionist when it comes to English writing, punctuation, spelling and grammar. Texting is fun but it takes away the important skills we all should embrace with the English language. I'll help you find the fun in traditional and proper English usage.
