Public Speaking

I taught Speech and was the Model United Nations (MUN) coach at a high school in Tokyo for 11 years. I designed the MUN club curriculum and included public speech coaching as part of the program for every class from 7th to 11th grade. I have also assisted doctors and lawyers to prepare for international conferences and preparations in Korea and Japan for 15 years. I am confident I can assist anyone with the varied demands and needs of any public speaking occasion. Thanks!

I have a BA in Educational Psychology and an MA in English Literature and Humanities. I have a teaching certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have taught English, Literature, ESL/EFL and TOEFL in Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, and the US. I conducted weekly test prep workshops for TOEFL and IELTS (and the Cambridge and UN English exams) for 10+years in Tokyo during the years I was head of the Foreign Faculty at Senzoku Gakuen High School for Girls. The TOEFL and IELTS are similar and have changed in like ways over the years as they have adapted their tests to be internet- based and have moved away from paper tests. While this has allowed these exams to be less focused on passive language skills, it has caused new challenges for students as they must deal with noisy and distracting test rooms and 'communication' with computers. I can certainly assist students looking for help to prepare for IELTS and TOEFL.

Literature

I have been an English, Language Arts, and ESL/EFL teacher for 18+ years in the USA, Korea, Japan, Thailand, and Malaysia. I have written reading passages for entrance examinations for both the high school and college level. I have worked as a curriculum coordinator and designed Literature courses for middle school to the college level. Understanding and interpreting literature can become a joy with the right approach and attitude; if one is struggling with this subject, a few sessions with a solid tutor can make all the difference.

Very Helpful

Alice was very personable but also professional. I felt very comfortable showing my shortcomings so that she was able to assess. With all her experience, she was able to give me many good ideas, tips and strategies.

Dianne, 1 lesson with Alice

Extremely Qualified. Kind. Patient.

Alice knows her stuff. She has lived & worked around the world. She is very knowledgeable about the different language issues faced by those who grow up in another language. She is able to explain why you have a problem or issue. For example, I have a child from Russia. I learned a lot about her language & language acquisition issues. But my child has difficulty with L words and I never knew why. Alice was able to explain by demonstrating the actual sound and showing us the learned tongue position by a Russian language native. And she demonstrated the English way so that we know the difference. OMG this is amazing. Knowledge is not only power it is a beautiful gift when shared in kindness & to help another. I highly recommend Alice!
