Hey! My name is Megan and I am an American English speaker from Minnesota.
I've spent the past five years living in Japan teaching English. When I came here, I found a passion for teaching and worked to get a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
I find that people around the world study English for many similar reasons: to reach goals, to try new things, or to meet new people. English is a truly international language and a special tool that can help show our cultures to the world. Just like we have different cultures, we have different ways of using English to communicate. I'm here to help you grow-into and strengthen your own English style.
Me as a Teacher
I am supportive, patient and willing to meet you wherever you are in your language learning journey. I hope to provide you as much time as you need to feel comfortable and at ease with English. I am here to help you reach your language goals!
While I am your teacher, there are also many things I can learn from you. Please tell me about your culture, your home, your thoughts, the things you enjoy, anything! I'm really looking forward to talking to you :)
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are customized to your individual needs.
Motivation is the biggest key to language learning success, so I try to form what we talk about and study together to your interests in order to keep you engaged, excited and motivated!
My teaching style is relaxed and supportive, yet I'm strict in my standards in order to help you reach your highest potential.
🥳Kids Lessons can include 🥳 homework help, tutoring, speech coaching, test prep, conversation practice, show and tell, reading books, having fun, imaginary play
Please feel free to always tell me if something isn't working for you, or if you want to shift your learning focus. We will find ways together to best meet your goals!
