About the lesson
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach ESL, and Essay Writing and Proofreading.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I did my undergraduate degree in Japanese Studies and Political Science at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. I also did a further year of study at the University of Toronto in Political Science. Currently, I am pursing a part-time MA in Asia-Pacific Studies at SOAS-University of London.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £10 for a 60 min lesson in ESL and £12 for a 60 min lesson in Essay Writing and Proofreading. The first lesson is free and for ESL lessons only I charge £2 less per person for each additional person to a maximum of 3 people, i.e. 1 person is £10 for 60 min; 2 people are £8 each and 3 people are £6 each. Also, the student pays for the cost of travel outside of zones 1 and 2.

For now, I will teach in public places, such as restaurants and community centres. My main areas are Islington (Holloway, Angel, Archway, Finsbury, Manor House), Central London and the West End, but I am willing to travel to other parts of London.

Currently, as my schedule is flexible I am available at all different times. Lesson times can be arranged on an individual basis suitable to all parties.

For ESL and for Essay Writing and Proofreading I teach from ages 18 and up. For ESL I teach from high beginners to advanced. For Essay Writing and Proofreading I teach college and university students.

Currently, I do not do online tutoring. However, this is something I would be interested in and this may change in the future.

I want you to be the best that you can be whether in your ESL or in essay writing. Work hard, but have fun and success will be your reward!

- What kind of experience do you have?
I tutored college students in ESL at a local community college in Canada. I also spent 3 years in Japan on the JET programme. After, I taught English for a period of time in Canada. Upon my return to Japan I spent a year with a major ESL school followed by a private ESL company in Tokyo which places native-speaking ESL teachers in local elementary and junior high schools. During both times I also taught many private individual and group lessons in general and business English at language schools and through tutoring services similar to the Tutor Pages. My students ranged from junior and senior high school students to young people in their twenties and thirties, through to businessmen in their forties, all the way to middle-aged and retired people from all different backgrounds, levels, abilities and interests.
I am also a language student myself as I continue to pursue my study of Japanese, French and Spanish and am interested in studying other languages. For these reasons I understand the needs and wants of language students from the perspective of both a student and a teacher.
I have excellent oral and written communication skills. I have been to 3 universities in my lifetime for a total of 7 years and am familiar with the skills and requirements of essay writing and proofreading.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No, I do not.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
As I have just registered with the Tutor Pages, I do not currently have any students.
