Hello, I am an experienced business English teacher specializing in helping Japanese business people make good relationships with foreign counterparts, excel in business, and grow their careers.
With over 25 years of experience coaching, training, and teaching mostly Japanese business people in a wide range of industries, my number one priority is to help you reach your goals in English.
Clients have included beginners to advanced, and entry level to top management and company presidents. In addition on many occasions, I have had the opportunity to write, proofread, and edit business documents and those for publication.
Four years of experience teaching at a medical/ dental university in central Tokyo and facilitating Medical English seminars.
For my clients in business, my main job has been to give them the language tools and behaviors to do their jobs successfully in English, that is to help them make good relationships with their counterparts and to help them reach their communication goals. This includes teaching how to make their speaking in meetings, discussions, negotiations, presentations, and writing persuasive. Improving critical and logical thinking in the context of their jobs has also been a very big part of what I do.
For many of my clients, I create materials. The materials are based on current events and/or focused on the industry they are in.
While some clients have been short-term -- they have reached their goals quickly -- others have been long-term, receiving value and enjoying the various teaching methods and topics that I employ. This brings them insight into not just western culture but also Japanese culture. I almost exclusively teach in English to better prepare my clients for times when they have to communicate with those who cannot speak Japanese.
My top priority is to help my clients' reach their dreams and goals. I receive job satisfaction from my clients' happiness.
