I minored in Japanese, but I forgot most of the language. Now, that I am in Japan, it is slowly coming back. I have been an interpreter for Spanish to English and vice versa for 30 years. I have been an Art and English teacher.
I use a variety of methods in teaching. From free conversation with ease to more technical of using worksheets, live worksheets on laptop, and books.
I am very easy going and I like for my students to feel comfortable without judgment in learning English and having fun doing so.
UPDATE - my 2nd year student at junior high won first place in the city's English Speech Contest!
