About Bill

Near-native level Japanese fluency.

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.

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

I taught ESL in Japan for 18 years to all different levels. I have taught pre-school, elementary, junior/senior high school, college level, business classes and daily conversation.

I also am able to explain in Japanese which is helpful to new learners. I can help with problems you may have other than language, as well. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Japanese

I lived in Japan for 18 years. When I first went I did not speak any Japanese, so I learned many tricks in order to learn quickly. Now I am fluent enough to use Japanese in the workplace and would like to pass on my knowledge.
