About James

Hello!

I am an experienced English teacher with 13 years of experience teaching English overseas. I am adaptable and flexible and have worked with all ages and various backgrounds. Learning English can be a challenge, but I feel that there is a lot someone can learn with a great attitude and the right teacher. Let's give it a go!

I have 13 years of teaching experience in Korea and Japan and have completed the Level 5 TESOL certification course offered through Global English. I have taught in one-on-one settings, as well as large classroom settings. I have experience teaching all ages, and preparing lesson plans that are suitable for all levels. I have helped prepare for various tests including TOEIC and TOEFL, and well as helping high school children in Japan learn English to prepare for college entrance tests. I have also taught business English and conversational English, and have taught in homes as well as in company work sites. I am willing to test my adaptability to meet your needs!

I am sure your trouble with English is a problem I have already helped someone with before. Please contact me at let's make great progress together!

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.

Bible Studies

I was raised in a Christian family where daily Bible family devotions were a part of regular life. My father was a minister and Bible professor, and I attended a private Christian school from elementary school up through high school. I regularly read the Bible and regularly attend church.

ESL/ESOL

I have a TESOL certification through Global English. I have 12 years experience teaching in Japan and 1 year of teaching in Asia working with Panasonic's overseas English preparation department.

Grammar

I am certified for ACTDEC for ESL teaching, and have worked with all ages for 12 years in Japan and a year in Korea. I have taught TOEIC and EIKEN and all levels of conversation and business English.
