I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I can be anything from a conversation partner, to a study buddy. I can help with total beginners trying to get the hang of hiragana and katakana, to students memorizing kanji. I am familiar with several levels of formality, so I can provide lessons on casual speech or formal speech.

I also am very familiar with Japan itself, and the culture. So if you're planning a trip or studying abroad, I can help you figure everything out.

I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

Eric is a miracle worker. I had a 70 in my 3rd year college Finance class and was on a path to failing it. I worked with Eric a couple of weeks and was able to recover my grade. I now have a B and have a chance to make it an A! He has a deep understanding of finance and is able to quickly solve complex problems. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with finance / math concepts.

"Aaron really is the best language teacher I've had- better than any of my college professors by far. I heard about Aaron from a buddy who had taken lessons with him for 6 months in preparation for a business trip- he raved about Aaron and suggested that I give lessons a shot.

I had taken a handful of Arabic language courses in college, but afterwards I felt like I forgot everything I learned. It was exhausting and frustrating to go back to the material and try to re-learn the basics. Aaron has helped me solidify my basics and made me confident and comfortable understanding and speaking both MSA and colloquial Arabic. He's extremely patient, sincere, and hilarious. He doesn't waste time and knows exactly what he's doing

Awesome awesome teacher!"
