CELTA Pass A English teacher with experience in Japan, with a love for language

Methodology

My teaching methods are designed on making activities that promote active learning. In group classes, students work in pairs or groups when answering questions and in private classes, I cater to the students' needs whether it be wanting to focus on a certain skill or achieving a desired go like passing a test. Once we have practice covering a grammar point or vocabulary, I try to include a freer task that promotes using the language in the appropriate context.

Background

I am an EFL teacher certified in Toronto, Canada with a CELTA Pass A certification. I spent the last three years teaching at different private high schools in Tokyo, Japan, designing curriculum and exams and honing my skills for English conversation classes. I am taking full-time French classes at the moment and I have experience studying Japanese and Mandarin Chinese, so I know how it feels to be student of a foreign language.
