Answer
Hello!

Good luck learning English!

The best thing you can do is USE English every day!  Speak it.  If you can't speak it, write it!  Listening and reading is great for building your ability, but you cannot improve something unless you USE it!

My absolute favorite grammar book is English Grammar in Use.  It has very clear explanations, very basic and fundamental grammar patterns and, very useful pictures and good exercises.  I highly recommend it.

Have fun!

Expertise

I can answer pretty much any question a student might have about English; about grammar, vocabulary, meanings of words, phrases, expressions or idioms, pronunciation, etc. I can answer questions about how to learn or study English better, how to improve certain aspects of communication (listening, writing, speaking, etc), about why we have certain rules.

Experience

I've been teaching English in Japan, mainly as a private (one-to-one) teacher, but also at companies such as Universal Studios or international airports. I have taught professional interpreters and translators and I have also taught students who dropped out of high school and never learned any English. Several years ago I acquired the CELTA and I have been running my own classroom for the past year.

Organizations
None in particular, but I work with a number of companies who regularly introduce me to new students and occasionally to other companies that are looking for English teachers.

Education/Credentials
The CELTA.

Past/Present Clients
I currently have approximately 40 individual students with whom I work one on one. I have also worked with local manufacturing companies, colleges, local retailers, as well as Sharp, Universal Studios, Itami International Airport, Kobe International Airport
