About Me

Hi all! I'm Abby and I have been an EFL teacher in Japan for the last 10 years. During this time I have taught students of all ages from preschool to graduate school and even more mature adults. 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!!!
