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!
The default lesson style is conversational style with feedback provided after the lesson. Customization is also possible with advance notice. I only teach adults and high school age students. (Because I don't offer trial lessons, this information will be provided at booking to ensure the student understands the lesson style.)
