Qualifications & Experience

I am an English language instructor (native-speaker) with over 18 years of teaching experience, the nine most recent of which have been in post-secondary, diplomatic, and university settings. My qualifications include an M.A. TESOL (New York University) with a 4.0 GPA, B.A. in Japanese and Linguistics (Massey University), and Cambridge CELTA. I have extensive experience teaching a diverse range of adult English Language Learners in the USA, Belgium, and Japan. My most recent teaching positions involved instructing academic, professional, and general EFL courses at the New York University ALI Tokyo Center and academic English courses at Waseda University in Japan. I have also taught English to junior and senior high school students in Japan. I am a reliable, well-organized, positive, and cooperative individual with a love of teaching, empowering, and motivating my students to help them fulfill their potential. I would truly appreciate the opportunity to contribute to your learning.

I will help you reach your goals in all areas of English language learning for general, professional, and academic English. I have almost a decade of international teaching experience at top colleges such as Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan and at New York University. I have also taught top-level diplomats at the EU Parliament and Commission in Brussels. I will help you reach your goals in all areas and at all levels of English language learning: general, professional, and academic English.

Improve your Japanese speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills from lessons taught by an instructor with a degree in Japanese language. I lived in Japan for 15 years, teaching at high school, university and business levels. I can also offer insights into Japanese culture and living in Japan. I have devised a "crash course" in Japanese which is ideal for those planning to relocate or visit soon.

If you take my lessons, you will see rapid results in improving your language ability!
