****CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW STUDENTS**** Hi all! I'm Abby and I have been an EFL teacher for the past 15 years in Japan and now online.

As a teacher, I am patient and tailor my lessons to fit the individual student. Every one is different and learns differently so we will work together to find the best way to help you achieve your dreams of being fluent in English. I look forward to seeing you in my class!!!
**********............WATCH MY VIDEO TO SEE MY TEACHING SKILL...............********** I like my job! Just two weeks after I began teaching in 2009, I realised that I had a talent. Therefore, teaching has always been easy for myself and I feel very confident. Many long-term students have become my friends. I have several unique selling points that are important when future students are searching for their teacher. Slowly, step by step, I too learnt elementary grammar together with my students and, since then, I can competently explain it. I enjoy grammar whereas the majority of native speakers cannot explain grammar at all, because they do not know it themselves. They learnt English as children and were never taught the rules of grammar at school. Furthermore, I have a nice British accent. In fact, my accent quickly improved when I first lived overseas 17 years ago. I began to deliberately speak clearly, carefully pronouncing every word, so that people could understand me more easily. This quickly became my normal speech. Furthermore, now I can speak conversational Russian. Finally, I am a patient person. Some children are much happier showing me their toys, in comparison to reading from a book or learning an English story for school. However, this is very normal. I allow the children to release their excitement as they show me such toys and pets, or tell me about their weekend, before guiding them back to the tasks required in our lesson. In fact, many of the intelligent children do not even need my help to do their school homework. They are clever enough to do it themselves, answering the questions often quicker than I can. However, they enjoy the company and moral support of studying with me. It provides them with motivation. I have a qualifying law degree from London.

STUDENT COMMENTS Thank you You are best tutor - Student from Russia ................ First of all, I would like to thank you very much for the dedication of last year. The test was very objective on foreign trade. The English question was comprehensive in explaining an export process, I do have to that our classes have helped me a lot! I used many terms and felt safe. I skipped many positions and got to 21st place. Since there were few vacancies, I did not passed . But last week they called me and I got my dream job! I apologize for my late return, but should know that your work was essential for my achievement! - Student from Brazil. ---------------- I have been putting a 5 star after every classes! You deserve it. Thank you - Student from India ------------ Marie, I go the job offer! Thank you so much for your help and support!!! - Student from Japan. ----------- Marie, Thank you so much! You have given me so many great advice and helping hand. You have also pushed me to go outside of my comfort zone. My husband has been saying "Marie is awesome!" almost everyday now.

Thanks a lot to you for being my English teacher. It´s a privilege to have you as a teacher. We have not known each other for a long time but since we started classes, I have learned a lot with you. I have noticed errors that I had been committing for years and I was not aware of them, because nobody had corrected me before. In addition to all that, I have discovered that communicating in English is not just knowing the whole grammar perfectly and the vocabulary, but it is also the intonation of the words that helps you that the message you are trying to convey is not misunderstanding, and much more I have learned with the little time we know each other. Thanks for your encouragement and for your good advice on life, these help me to see life with different eyes and if there is any obstacle that hinders me from continuing with my path, I will not stop because of it, I will jump it ! 🙂 I hope you continue to be my guide for this long journey that is to learn English and to help me achieve my goals. Thank you so much. Best wishes.....Student from Madrid --------------- Here's my SAT report.

My name is Todd. I started teaching because of my love of traveling and learning about other people's cultures. I was born in Cincinnati, OH. So if you study with me, you would be learning English from a Native-English speaker. I graduated from the International TEFL Academy where I earned my certification to teach English as a foreign language. In addition to Teaching, I am also an Artist. I love to paint and draw. I use these skills in my lessons. I enjoy the creativity of designing exercises and activities. It is my belief that the more senses that are involved in the learning process; the more English will be understood and easily grasped.
