Hi there! Pleased to meet you. I’m Jessica, a native English speaker born and raised in the UK. I’m from London and currently live in Tokyo to study the Japanese language and become acquainted with the culture.
I’m a very friendly, professional and passionate teacher who is determined to help my students build confidence in their English language skills. I am currently a Japanese learner myself so I understand the difficulties and fears of learning a new language, especially at the very beginning of the journey where knowledge of vocabulary and grammar are still limited.
I am CELTA qualified and have gained experience teaching in London as well as in Japan. I have worked with a variety of students from different backgrounds and very much enjoy seeing them progress quickly. I have taught in large multi-lingual classes as well as in 1-on-1 sessions, from the advanced student to the absolute beginner.
I can tailor each lesson to you, according to your needs whether it be for a specific academic test, Business English or general conversational practice. I am very patient and encourage a lot of student talking time, especially if you don’t have much practice in your daily life. I specialize in accent reduction and teach natural speech to help you sound more like a Native.
I look forward to hearing from you!
