I make every effort to make learning English fun and interesting. I have developed numerous games and activities to motivate young students to excel beyond their own expectations. For business people I provide relevant focused lessons based on communicative skills.
Living in Japan and teaching students from 1 1/2 to 70 years old for more than twelve years and having owned my own school gave me the following skills and experiences.

3. I had more than 40 teaching hours per week.
4. I created original class materials including flashcards and games.
5. I had wonderful relationships with students and their parents.

After moving to the U.S, I've tried many ways to improve my English skills. I realized that I needed personalized help. I think that each of us has different problems and weaknesses in English. Chris has a lot of experience and he knows how to approach us the right way. He has a great sense of humor and makes me relax in our class. I highly recommend him.
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.
I have taught English in Japan for over 12 years. I worked for a language school there, developing curriculums from the textbooks I chose for the wide range of classes there. I also opened my own school where I directed all educational programming including developing international English immersion programs for my students who wanted to study and experience culture in the USA.
I took a 100 hour TEFL certificate course and passed at the top of the class. I also completed a course in teaching children ESL/EFL as well as attending Teaching lectures and workshops as a member of English Teachers of Japan(ETJ).
I graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh as a photojournalism major. As a student there I won best of show in the photography contest. I also worked as a professional portrait photographer with Artistic Photos. I volunteered for some non-profit organizations by taking photos of their events.
