I am a certified ESL teacher with experience in teacher training, curriculum development, and school management.
I've been teaching for over 8 years, beginning in Japan with adult and children's classes. In Japan I frequently taught in factories and businesses and I also prepared intensive classes for workers preparing to go abroad and for students preparing for their TOEIC English certification as well. After a successful experience teaching in Japan I travelled to China and first taught in a university in Dalian. As the most experienced teacher on our team I prepared both semesters' curriculum for the non-English majors and helped students prepare for their CET-4 and CET-6 exams.
After finishing in Dalian I joined Wall Street English in 2010. I started as a full time teacher and eventually was promoted to assistant and then full Service Manager. During that time I interviewed, hired, trained, and observed many teachers as well as developing and reviewing lesson and activity plans.I oversaw the introduction of our new business curriculum 'English Pro' and helped to train and evaluate staff in all areas of teaching and service. I also prepared some of the largest social events in the center's history, including 3 events that raised money for local charities.
Later, as an experienced teacher and manager I was assigned to various centers in the city depending on staffing needs. During this time I helped to evaluate and prepare IELTS review courses for students preparing to go abroad. I also taught and observed staff in our online center so I also have experience preparing and teaching materials online using Cisco Webex.

Your time is important, so you need a teacher who can help you to get the most practice and biggest improvement with every hour. I have the methods and the materials to have you using the language in real situations right away.
I am a TESOL certifed teacher and have been teaching adults and professionals for over 8 years. I have taught over 5000 classes to all levels of students. I have helped weak English speakers to improve their basic fluency and developed intense courses to prepare Japanese and Chinese managers to go overseas. I have a wide range of materials and can work with you to create a curriculum that fits your needs.
I don't need to practice English, you do. So my classes are designed to provide the maximum amount of time for you to speak and use the new language we will learn.
