Near-native level Japanese fluency. Expert ESL Teacher.

Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, Masters in TESOL.

Professional Interpreting/Translating experience.

I lived in Japan as a teacher for 18 years. When I first went I could not speak a word of Japanese, and I lived in an area with no English speakers, so I had to find the fastest way to communicate in order to get by on a daily basis. Because of this, I learned many tricks as to how to be able to communicate effectively with a limited amounted of ability. My own learning progressed to now a near-native level and I would like to pass on what I have learned to others.

I have N2 certification in Japanese Proficiency, and a Masters of Education in TESOL. I have taught all age groups, from age 4 to 70. I have teaching licenses in Japanese, English, ESL, and math from the State of Indiana (currently not active). I can work together with the student to find the best way to enhance learning.

Suitable tutor for Japanese

He knows well about Japanese peoples personality. And he knows how to teach Japanese people efficiently. I think he is one of the best tutor for learners who come from Japan.
