Mary Margaret G.
Hello! It's nice to meet you. My name is Mary Margaret and I am using "take lessons" as a platform to teach Japanese and ESL. Since high school, I have relished in teaching others. I began as a dance teacher with my local studio and taught through university. After university, I travelled to Japan with the JET program to teach ESL to pre-K, elementary, middle, and high school children. I stayed with the JET Program for four years in a remote area, then moved near Tokyo to work at a private junior-high/high school.
In addition to being an ESL and English literature teacher, I was appointed as a homeroom teacher which required advanced knowledge of Japanese speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I am unique in that I learned Japanese on my own upon my arrival in Japan, and I have many stories to tell about how I remembered vocabulary and grammar. I used these techniques in my daily lesson plans with my students.
I approach private lessons with the understanding that students differ in their levels of motivation, learned vocabulary, and learning ability. I am flexible and will work with you to create the most efficient lessons possible. I look forward to working with you either teaching Japanese or ESL.
