I have over 13 years of teaching experience at both the secondary and post-secondary level, and I have lived and taught for nearly 10 years in Japan. I have a graduate degree in education with a specialization in TESL/TEFL.
I prefer engaging in long-term professional relationships with students rather than one-time tutoring sessions.

My son enjoys writing lessons with Steve and has improved writing skills just after 3-4 sessions with Steve. Before he used to hate doing writing at home but now he likes it which is a big change.
Very responsive, attentive and patient teacher! I loved our first lesson, it was exactly what I was looking for. I'm definitely going to keep working with Steve, and I don't have any doubts that eventually no one will even think about asking "what country is your accent from?" :)+ Read More

Steve has great pedagogical skills to teach using clear examples to explain the study topic. Steve taught me helpful tips to manage better my time while answering TOEFL test kind of questions. I recommend Steve a 100%!+ Read More
Steve is the best teacher. My co-worker told me that your English communication has really improved. It makes me very happy. I had improved my English because he helped me a lot. He is my English teacher and life coach. I have taken his lessons for 1 year, but I should have taken lessons earlier.+ Read More
Steve has helped our son improve his speech in record time. It took us about a year to find a person who could help us with the very specific task of guiding a teenager toward using a more formal speech in general, in terms of both vocabulary and pronunciation. English is our second language, and Steve has been incredibly creative in finding ways to show our child how to improve his management of the English language. My child's self-confidence is growing, as is his academic commitment in general.+ Read More
Steve is an amazing teacher, he has really helped me improve my accent and I feel very comfortable!
Steve is a Godsend. My son has had multiple tutors, but he never actually liked nor thought any of them were any good. He is a very hard sell. After the first lesson my son informed me that Steve is good. "He taught me something useful" Week after week my son writes an essay. He is actually working at it. Steve is very soft spoken, encourages in a very natural way which works extremely well for my son. My mission this summer was to get my son writing every week, now its happening and I hear zero complaints. Waazaam!+ Read More
I have booked class for my kid and Steve initially agreed. It was a weekend and we cancelled our family appointments and was waiting for Steve to show and he cancelled it in the last minute stating that he is double booked.
Steve is the man you need if you need to improve your English, my experience with Steve make me a better English speaker
