-About Me-

Hello!

I am Steve, and I have taught English in Sendai, Japan for almost 3 years through the Japanese Exchange and Teaching programme (JET) at schools such as Nakayama and Yakata Elementary and Junior High School (小学校の5,6年と中学校の1,2,3年を教えました).

I have assisted my students in succesfully delivering their English speeches at school speech contests, and I have helped my students win awards in English comic contests.

I also have experience in teaching at English community classes to students of all ages inclding high school, university, and working class.

Currently I am completing my Masters Thesis at my universitiy's School of Public Leadership. It is challenging but at the same time also very rewarding.

-My Lessons-

I teach using British pronunciation, and I have a passion for teaching English in a simple and fun way, where my students can enjoy themselves and use their English in everyday situations (日常会話).

I believe in helping students learn practical English skills that they can use to talk about their interests or professions.

My lessons aim to help students with:
  • Speaking and Listening 
  • Pronunciation
  • Open Conversation
  • Vocabulary

-Hobbies-

My hobbies are soccer(サッカー), playing the electric guitar in my local band(ギター), and learning languages. I enjoy watching and playing sports, and I can talk about soccer all day! I also enjoy the outdoors, whether taking a walk in the woods or camping in the mountain!

-My Story-

Since I was little, it has always been my dream to live in Japan, and experience the Japanese lifestyle. After graduating from university in 2011, I was sent to Sendai City, (the City of Trees) which had just suffered damage from a large Tsunami hit. 

At first, I was a little scared but also excited to go and help the people of Sendai recover from the 2011 disaster. I was glad to help people in any small way, whether to teach English, give hope, smile, or just to be friends!

After almost 3 years in Japan, I am happy to see many people now visiting Sendai, and going to teach English there, and I am thankful for the amazing friends I could make in Japan!

Enjoy your English studies, and I hope to be working with you soon!
