Hello! My name is Jackie and it's a pleasure to meet you! I'm from Chicago, IL, USA but I currently reside in Aichi, Japan.
My hobbies are cooking and eating, reading and writing, and learning languages. I'm also a fan of art and design, though language learning has taken over in recent years. In the future I would love to travel the world and meet people while speaking the local language and trying the local dishes. That would be a dream!
I have been teaching English since 2013 and I have been enjoying it every step of the way. I received my 200-Hour TEFL/TESOL Certification in 2012, and up to that point, I had been volunteering as an ESL teacher in my hometown to students one-on-one. Since then, I have taught professionally in China and Japan, and have experience teaching one-to-one in person and online, as well as groups as large as 20+. I believe that learning another language is one of the most worthwhile things a person can do. I would love the opportunity to help you in your journey!
Please note that lessons are 45 minutes. All lessons are conversational style with feedback provided after the lesson. Due to the low lesson price, I'm afraid customizing the lesson style is not an option. I only teach adults, or high schoolers who are studying English because they want to learn it. (Because I don't offer trial lessons, this information will be provided at booking to ensure the student understands the lesson style.)
