I have over 10 years of experience teaching ESL to all ages of students. I have tutored Korean students in California as well as taught ESL privately and publicly in Japan. I know how to tailor my lessons to the individual needs of my students.
I am qualified to teach in this area because I have passed Level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. In addition, I have translation experience that helps me to provide a quick English-Japanese translation in conversation.

Lastly, I have extensive experience teaching ESL in Japan, an experience which allows me to utilize my background to help students succeed.
