What kind of teacher are you?
I am a qualified English language teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience. My teaching experience includes exam classes, general English lessons and Business English. I taught English in Japan for two years. My lessons are not prescriptive. I adapt to what my students require most and focus on what they want to learn or need the most help with. Each lesson is interactive, varied, fun and a little bit challenging to ensure you reach your goal! My focus is on communication using the 80/20 rule - you speak 80% of the time while I speak 20%!
I look forward to working with you. Let's have some fun with idioms!
