General Notices

Nice to meet you!  My name is Andy.  I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from Bradley University.  I've been teaching English professionally for about 7 years.  

My Experience:

I taught English in Izu City in Shizuoka prefecture.  I taught classes at City Hall, Elementary Schools, and Junior High Schools in the area.  I have experience teaching children as young as 5 and adults as old as 75.  I helped government workers and businesspeople study English for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics!
I also taught private lessons in my free time face-to-face and through Skype.  I love teaching!

About Me:

I loved living in Japan!  I had a part-time job cooking meals at a pension and interpreting for guests.  Cooking is my favorite hobby. (Especially Japanese food!) I also enjoy traveling, speaking Japanese, karaoke, video games, and watching anime.  Please talk to me about any of these subjects if you like!

My Lessons:

My teaching style is relaxed, exciting, and fun!  I believe if you aren't enjoying learning English, you will not want to continue studying.  I like to challenge you and give you the confidence to grow in your skill.  Some important points of my lessons to know:
  • I teach real-life English used in daily situations
  • I am not super strict on pronunciation, but I do want to help you become a more natural and skilled English speaker. Pronunciation is very important, but not the most important
  • I like showing you new words and using roleplaying to help you get ready for situations you will experience abroad
  • It's OK to make mistakes!  Making mistakes is how you learn.  With time, I can help you fix these mistakes.
Let's Get Started Now!

I hope for the chance to help you study English!  Thank you very much for checking my profile.  

Good luck to you!

Andy D.
