Hello, my name is Erika S., and am an ESL & Japanese tutor. I grew up both in Japan and America. While I was in Japan I taught ESL, and ESL & Japanese after coming to America. In 2006 I started teaching as my focus in undergraduate studies was Bilingual Development, and English Education. When I came to America I completed my graduate studies in TESOL at University of San Diego. My students are precious, and I love getting to know them. Ultimately conversing in the language is the goal, and it takes dedication both student, and teacher. I can't wait to work with you!

While I was in Japan for my undergrad my focus was in Bilingual Development, and English Education. It is then that I had started teaching ESL in Japan. For further eduction I had completed the master's program in TESOL certification. Since then I have taught in various settings. I have volunteer experience at the Salvation Army, and work experience at VIPKID, and Converse International School of Language. Interaction with the students is very important to me. Also, to truly gauge the student's progress, and meet their expectations.

In the end, language learning is a linguistic, and cultural experience. All you have to do is to have fun, and dedicate yourself for improvement in the subject. A teacher is there to provide information, and the student will process it. The learning process is a collaboration between the student and the teacher. That is why I believe that to get to know the student, and for them to get to know me is very important. Let me b
