Sobre mí

Hi! My name is Jon, and I'm from Seattle, WA. I have been teaching English in Japan for about 11 years, and have a lot of experience teaching learners from a wide range of skill levels and professions. I have an M.A. in TESOL, and I regularly apply the things I've learned during my studies in my sessions.

I believe the best way to learn a language is by speaking with native-speakers of that language as much as possible. This is the reason I came to Japan, and being able to practice speaking with native Japanese speakers everyday has led me to achieve near-native competence in Japanese.

I teach English using a communicative, task-based approach, which encourages learners to develop an awareness of their own language use through communicative practice. We will often have discussions, exchange stories, or even play a few communicative games! Through this practice, you will get a lot of opportunities to review and use language you already know, but also discover the need for new language, which you have never learned before. Above all, my focus is always on providing students with a learning experience that meets their specific needs, and my sessions are always flexible enough to address student difficulties whenever they arise.
