About Donald

Hello! My name is Don, and I have been involved in teaching and tutoring since I was a kid. When I was in 5th grade I tutored 1st graders in reading and math. I enjoyed the experience so much I continued to tutor a variety of subjects throughout my school years. In college I was a teaching assistant for both Spanish and German.
After college I moved to Japan where I taught ESL and TOEFL preparation for almost 8 years. My students in Japan were of all ages and backgrounds - from elementary school kids to doctors and professionals and even retired folks. It was a great experience. It is very rewarding to see students improve and to help them achieve their goals. As a language learner myself (I speak Spanish and Japanese and have also studied German, Swedish, and Thai) I understand the challenges and rewards of learning another language.

I taught ESL and TOEFL in Japan for almost eight years. As an experienced instructor in Japan, I also trained new teachers. I have done ESL and test prep work for Kaplan in Boston.

My initial plan was to become a high school Spanish teacher, but my captivation with Japan set me on a different path. Still, I majored in Spanish in college and worked as a Spanish teaching assistant. I have been able to keep up my fluency by traveling to Spain and South America as often as possible and by working with Spanish speakers while I lived in Boston.

Please contact me with any questions or for further information about my experience. I look forward to helping you achieve your language goals!
