I lived in Japan for three years between 2009-2012, where I worked as an English teacher. I have experience working with all ages from junior school students to retirees. I am also a freelance writer, novelist and writing instructor. I have published three books and am always working on new projects. I also write for magazines, newspapers and websites. These days I spend most of my time in the USA, but also regularly visit South Africa and travel a lot.
If you are looking to improve your written or spoken English I would love to help you.
I have three years of experience helping students prepare for all levels of Eiken [1st, Pre-1st, 2nd, Pre-2nd, and 3rd Grades]
I have experience helping students prepare for TOEIC.
I can help you with university entrance interviews or job interviews.
If you have documents or essays that you need to prepare for presentation I can help - no matter the topic or level of complexity.
If you would like to practice your English for traveling, socializing or meeting new people, I would also love to help.
I aim to make all lessons both informative and entertaining.
So please get in contact with me, I look forward to meeting you soon.
