(Skype lessons okay)
I have taught English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) for over twenty years, in language school and university, in Japan and Seattle. I have a master’s degree in TESOL from Temple University Japan.

Recently, I have taught in one-on-one settings in Seattle. My lessons are based on student’s needs, so I consult with them (at no cost) before starting on a program. Recently, I have given instruction in pronunciation, grammar, and composition.

Lessons in pronunciation are structured around practice of sound units in North American English (NAE) and the study of speech features such as linking, intonation and stress. Students should understand that everyone has an accent and that there is no need or possibility to achieve “perfection” in the target language.

In writing instruction, I offer help in organizing material, outlining and writing drafts. Also, we look at word choice, style, and formatting of academic and business English.

Grammar instruction is based on systematic review of the verb system, including tense, mood, voice and aspect.

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.

ESL/ESOL

My ESL lessons are based on student needs. In general, my students ask for practice in conversation, grammar, and pronunciation.

My students and I decide the content of the lessons together.
