I teach English using Immersion methods. I usually offer a free consultation to check a student's level and learn about their goals. After that, I will design a custom lesson to meet a student's needs. I will provide a sample lesson plan for them free of charge.
I've been teaching English for 10 years in Japan and Korea. I've created lessons for doctors, researchers, retirees, and many more types of people. I also am certified to teach English as a foreign language, and have spent most of my career teaching Japanese students.
Please let me know in advance if you need to cancel the lesson.
