About Tom

Hi, my name is Tom! I taught English for four years in Japan and three years in Mongolia. I worked in the Mongolian countryside as a Peace Corps volunteer. I believe that in teaching can be a learning experience for both the tutor and the pupil. I cherish all the memories I've created and ways I've grown from my years working abroad. Lessons should be tailored to a student's needs, and so I choose how to teach based on what I think would benefit you most.

I received a certificate for completing teaching training in Peace Corps and have taught in a variety of environments for more than seven years. I've taught at embassies, preschools, private schools and adult classes. I've also developed several curriculums and classroom materials.

I look forward to learning with you together in our lessons! Please contact me if you're interested or have any questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Japanese

I lived in Japan for over four years and can speak the language proficiently. I studied it in college for two years and later moved to live in the country itself. I also taught Japanese when I lived in Mongolia, in the city and the countryside, and I was personally recruited to teach English at the Japanese Embassy of Mongolia.
