My approach, whether it is teaching languages (Spanish, Japanese or ESL) or physical skills (physical fitness, martial arts, taichi) is to teach core concepts and their real world applications in a fun way.

My approach, whether it is teaching languages (Spanish, Japanese or ESL) or physical skills (physical fitness, martial arts, taichi) is to teach core concepts and their real world applications in a fun way. Students will get a thorough understanding that will not only get them good grades and test scores, but also deep knowledge that will help them retain the subject matter for a long time.

In terms of subject knowledge, I taught ESL, TOEFL and TOEIC in Japan and the US for 10 years; I taught conversational Japanese and Spanish for 20 years; and, as a certified martial arts teacher, have been teaching martial arts and physical fitness for over 20 years.

With these many years, working with students of varying ages, I can adapt my approach to make sure that the student's learning style and goals are taken into account. This experience also helps me with teaching students how to prepare for tests, as I can help them master subject knowledge as well as the mind/ body aspects that affect test taking, so that students can prevail without having too much unnecessary stress.

With this step by step approach, my students will get their desired result and enjoy the process. Who says study has to be a grind? Not anymore.

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

A teacher of ESL/TESL for over 10 years, I specialized in helping students understand English both for testing and real life communication. I worked both in the school system as well as in institutes dedicated to helping students improve their speaking, negotiation and test taking skills (TOEFL, TOEIC). Since I was a linguistics major as an undergrad before completing my education at UCLA, my approach is grammar-based with a focus on functional learning and quick acquisition. I specialize in helping students prepare for tests and increasing their confidence, competence, precision, and overall business/work proficiency. This is especially true for business/academic writing and speaking.
Japanese,

Japanese

After studying Japanese language and culture at UCLA and University of California at Berkeley, I moved to Japan where I lived and worked for 11 years. In Japan, I exclusively worked in Japanese companies and Japanese subsidiaries of foreign firms, where I was required to use Japanese spoken and written language to communicate with managers and other employees. After coming back to NYC, I also worked in Japanese companies where it was required that I read, write, speak and translate Japanese (into English or Spanish). So I am quite proficient in not only academic, but also business Japanese as well. Because of this, I can help students practically and successfully navigate their way through this complex and fascinating world. My specialty is readying students to travel, work and live in Japan. What we will cover together is not only speaking and proper grammar usage but, more importantly cultural context, so that students will be able to freely and effectively communicate to native Japanese speakers wherever they reside and whatever context they might find themselves in. Although I have mostly helped students who want to learn Japanese for practical/work related reasons, I also want it to be known that I also help those who love Japanese culture, as that was my passion and reason for learning this wonderful language. So, if you are into Manga, Anime, Karaoke, Budo/Japanese Martial Arts (Aikido, Karate, Kendo, Jiujutsu, etc.) and/or J-pop, I am definitely able to help you enjoy these arts and even understand them better. Whether your interest is academic, practical/work-related or cultural interests, you will benefit from working with me. My passion is to help my students become more proficient and knowledgeable in this amazing language and culture. By working with me, you will not only gain access to this new world, you will also be able function in it faster in with more ease. So, contact me and let's get this party started.

Spanish

Spanish

A native Spanish speaker, I took advanced Spanish language and literature courses while studying Linguistics at UCLA. As a student, I tutored American and Japanese students who wanted to learn Spanish, and have since done this for my private students both in Japan and here. I have over 20 years experience and will help you speak like a native.

TOEFL

TOEFL

20 years ago I began teaching TOEFL prep classes to my Japanese students who were preparing to study abroad in the US. I did this for various institutes and privately. This was in addition to test prep for TOEIC, which was more popular for business people and for those living in Asia. Since I moved back to the US, I have also taught this important preparation to students trying to get into such schools as UCLA, Columbia, Hunter College, LIU and others. I have also done this for schools like Zoni and independently. Here I worked with students from many different countries, such as China, Japan, the Philippines, Russia (Former Soviet Union), Poland, Taiwan, India, and Latin America (Mexico, Columbia, etc.). So, if one needs a tutor who is experienced in the subject, is good at test prep and can help students of different nationalities, I am your man.

Sports/Recreation

Fitness,

Fitness

A competitive athlete (gymnastics, running, combatives) and martial artist with over 30 years experience in numerous fitness disciplines, I focus on functional exercises, simple equipment, and different types of resistant training. In addition to exercise and body awareness, I offer a holistic approach to fitness, combining mind, body, and emotional intelligence to help students leverage the best of themselves. I am also a certified holistic health coach, having years of training from both the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Primal Health Coach Institute,, so in addition to fitness coaching, I can add proper nutrition and mental/emotional support to any fitness regimen. I teach clients how to get stronger, more agile and flexible, while increasing their stamina, in simple and effective ways. This means clients can achieve their optimum weight and body composition, while building the body and fitness they desire without endless hours in a gym. In many cases the goals can be achieve in as little as 30min a few times a week. Most of the training/coaching/tutoring will be done in your home or in some public environment that you prefer to make it easy, accessible and repeatable. Work can be done in person or virtually, whichever makes sense. So, If you want to be fit with a powerful fitness program that works with your lifestyle,get lifestyle/wellness coaching, or would like to prepare for a test or some athletic endeavor, check me out. I look forward to hearing from you.
Martial Arts

Martial Arts

I have over 30 years experience learning and over 20 years teaching martial arts. Arts I have studied are: Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Kali/Escrima/Arnis, Penjak Silat, Wing Chun, Jeet Kun Do, Muy Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Martial Taichi, Xing-Yi, Bagua, Systema and Combat Hapkido. I have a number of lineages, though as one goes on with training that does not matter as much. To help students decide, here are some of the main ones to reference: American Tae Kwon Do (Joe Trinidad), JKD Unlimited [Jeet Kune Do/Thai Boxing/Silat and Kali] (Burton Richardson), Cheng-Ming Kung Fu [Martial/Competitive Taichi, Xingyi] (Hidemine Jibiki and Wang Fu-lai done through the All Japan Soft Style Martial Arts Federation), Pekiti Tirsia Kali Association (kit Acenas), Systema (Andy Cefai, Edgars Cakuls, Martin Wheeler, Vladimir Vasiliev and Mikhai Ryabko), Combat Hapkido (Robert Clancy), MMA [Thai Kickboxing/BJJ] (Bronx Martial Arts Academy). My approach is direct and practical. It combines sensitivity, strength, agility and stamina with forms, techniques and concepts to build up a person's ability to grow as a person as they learn to defend themselves. Depending on what track a person takes, the learning can be more combatives or character-building oriented, as I adapt my training methods to the goals of the student(s) I am working with. Regardless of what I am teaching, however, the method is safe, time-tested and transformative, helping improve their composure and increasing their chances in prevailing even in difficult situations. So, if you want real self-defense that is practical, effective and affordable, please consider meeting me for a trial session. You will be glad you did.
