Simon Norton Tutor Profile

This tutor is currently on leave.

Hello, I'm Simon from England.

I recently spent four years teaching English in Japan, with AEON in Kyoto, and then with GABA in Osaka and Tokyo. Before Japan I lived in Vancouver, Canada, where I also taught English for one year. I have been teaching english for a total of eight years, in Canada, in Japan, and on Cafetalk.

I speak British English, but I don't have a strong accent so you can understand me easily. I'm also very familiar with North American and Australian English, and I will always tell you when they are different. I teach fun lessons where you do most of the talking - we will always be relaxed, but you will always learn lots of new things and never just chat.

I was born in Scotland, but I grew up in the north of England (do you know Yorkshire?!) and I studied neuroscience at Liverpool University. If you're not sure about the difference between Britain, the UK, England and Scotland, I'll be sure to explain it to you!

As well as teaching and learning languages, I love snowboarding (I was a snowboard instructor in Canada), scuba diving, rock climbing, hiking, football (soccer), reading, listening to music, and playing music (mainly classical and blues piano, also drums, guitar and harmonica). My main passion though is probably travelling - I have been to 60 countries around the world, and I can't wait to go the rest of them!
