For the past 5 years, I have worked on various online English (ESL) tutoring platforms. If you are a beginner, intermediate or advance student, I would be more than happy to help you clearly speak the English language. I have tutored students worldwide to improve their Conversational English such as pronunciation, reading comprehension, writing and vocabulary. My tutoring styles are to work together with lesson plans, exercises or project based learning. Did you know that “I am” is the shortest complete sentence in the English language? I am. “I” is the subject, and “am” is the verb. And, did you know that "Bookkeeper" and "Bookkeeping" are only words in the English language with three consecutive double letters? Preparing for a job interview? Let’s role play to help you successfully secure that job. I am a business owner, published author, and earned my Doctorate Degree: (biblical studies & international missions). My hobbies are traveling, museums, and history. Commanding the ...

Lessons involved cooperative learning, language experience approach, hands-on/minds-on experiences, and interdisciplinary teaching.
Worked with "Write-to-Read" program and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills.

We can focus on all four skills; speaking, listening, reading, and writing, but if a student would like to focus on only speaking, we can certainly do that as well. We also talk about cultural aspects of Japan and cover the vocabularies related to the cultural aspects.

About Emi

Hello, my name is Emi. I was born in Nagano prefecture and raised in Saitama prefecture. After graduating from college in Tokyo, I moved to the U.S. and have been teaching Japanese at public middle schools as well as colleges for almost 30 years. My hobbies are practicing musical instruments and

Sensei seems to really enjoy teaching. As both a native speaker and a longtime resident of the US, she is able to bridge the cultures in a way that many instructors would not be able to. I have been studying with her for over six months - both in a private and college setting - and I feel that I would be hard pressed to find a better teacher. In a college setting, she is very strict and covers a lot of material in a short period of time, and those who take her courses must be prepared to expend significant time and energy for success, but those who can keep up are well equipped to continue their studies with pretty much any other teacher or course.
Chris
Sensei Emi was patient, kind, and very thorough with her teaching. I started from knowing absolutely nothing about Japanese language or culture and now, having completed just 5 hours of lessons with her, I feel I have a solid foundation to build upon. Within our 5 hours we covered numbers, greetings, and almost all of the 46 basic hiragana. She was born and raised in Japan so it was lovely hearing about the culture and society from stories she lived through first hand. As I continue my education in Japanese I hope to return to her and continue to learn more. I highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone learning Japanese at any level.
Anderson
Emi is the second private tutor that my company has had and she by far has been the best, hands-down. She is professional and experienced but she is also flexible with scheduling which is a necessity for business professionals who travel quite a bit for work.
The homework is not strenuous but is focused and important for success in her lessons. She also teaches at a nice pace but also is willing to work with you if you feel that you are falling behind. You can absolutely tell that Emi cares about her students and their progression with the language no matter their age and experience.
