Hello! My name is John, and I'm an English teacher in Toyama, Japan. I've worked here for 4 years and I've been an ESL teacher for around 6.

I've taught thousands of students in my time as a teacher, ranging from kindergarteners to retired people in their 80s. I have been primarily working as a junior high school teacher, but I've also done a lot of work teaching business English, test passing strategies (EIKEN/TOEIC/etc.), conversation, travel English, and things like that.

My main hobbies are photography, learning Japanese, and drawing. I especially like making pictures with photoshop. If you have similar interests, I'm sure we'll get along fine!
I'm happy to talk with people of all ages. Please let me know if you have any specific demands or questions. Thanks and I look forward to teaching you!

Thank you for your interest in my lessons!
