General Notices

Keiko Davy Tutor Profile

Hello Everyone, my name is Keiko. I am from Japan, and have over 20 years of teaching experience ranging from teaching in Japan, Australia, and Malaysia. I have taught in schools, adult education and in private tutoring or group lessons and across different age groups.

I am a very friendly, enthusiastic and patient teacher who strives to meet the abilities, interests and needs of the students. I am passionate about making the learning meaningful to each individual while making sure the student feels confident and motivated in expressing her/himself.

(Celebrating the graduation with the students - it was the school's custom that boys and girls swap their uniforms on the final day of their schooling.)

I am particularly good at teaching English-speaking beginners and intermediate students to build up skills and knowledge in Japanese. I have a diverse range of materials and units of works, so if you don’t know where to start, don’t worry :) Or if you have any particular goals to achieve, please let me know - I will cater for your needs.

Living overseas for nearly 20 years helped me become more culturally sensitive and aware of my own background - Japanese culture, traditions, values and ways of thinking. If these are of your interests, I can help you deepen your understanding.

(Japan trip with my students, at Itsukushima)

I currently live in Bangkok, Thailand with my British husband. My hobbies are cooking, traveling, reading and sports such as cycling, hiking and tennis. I love keeping healthy and fit.

- Please let me know if you don't want to use the webcam for the lesson. This is quite important for me to know because I may need to modify your lesson. In some cases, I may not be able to accept your lesson request without the use of webcam. 

- I do try to check and reply messages as soon as possible but my response can be slow due to the time difference.
