I'm a well traveled and well educated individual with a great deal of experience tutoring people from all over the world. I have mainly taught English as a second language, but I am also knowledgeable about a variety of things. I have a certain passion for teaching history and literature, the humanities in general. I know those subjects are not very popular to study, which I find unfortunate, but I can also lend my Japanese language tutelage. Currently, I work as an assistant teacher in East Harlem.

During my time in Japan I taught at five elementary schools and one junior high school. In the schools I would teach ESL, but after school I would have conversation lessons with adults where we would practice speaking English by discussing a number different topics.

When it comes to geography I can say that I've been to many places on the globe and experienced them first hand. Anyplace I haven't been I've probably looked up while studying the history of that given region. As you can probably tell by now, I'm a bit of a nerd. However, I hope I can put that to good use here.
