I have experience teaching all ages & circumstances.I enjoy children(& have raised my 4 children in Japan). However, in my experience, very young, beginning English students, will do best in a lively group lesson(all English) with their peers(such as many schools/jukus offer).
I prefer to vary my lesson style according to what each student needs/wants. I teach using ONLY English(only occasionally using a Japanese word for clarification). I can understand some basic Japanese, but English was always spoken in our home, to ensure that our children could be bilingual.
I have a wide variety of interests----World Affairs & Cultures, History, Healthy Liftestyle, Child Development, Nature. I enjoy learning new things from my students.
