You can call me an English teacher or tutor, but I call myself an English coach — 指導者
I have been teaching ESL — English as a Subsequent Language — for 25 years and exclusively to Japanese students for the last 15 years.
(I have also taught students from Korea, Mongolia, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Congo, C.A.R, Burundi, Egypt, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, U.A.R., Kazakhstan, Russia, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, and Spain )
From 2000 to 2009 I ran my own school in Owariasahi-shi JAPAN.
Now I live in El Paso TX in the Chihuahua Desert

I am very socratic — ソクラテス . I always ask questions to guide you in correcting yourself.
|a few of the books we use|
|If you need grammar exercises,
the classic Azar books work well.
And I am quite familiar with them
|Most of my students like biographies
written for elementary pupils, like
in this “WHO WAS” series
|But I challenge them to also
read high school level biographies,
such as from this “Sterling” series
|For variety, some students
like to read science/nature books,
e.g. this “Eyewitness” series
|We also use online sources like Wikipedia or like Garden of Praise / Kid's Bios or periodicals like the WSJ|
