Master's Degree in TESOL and 12 years of professional English teaching experience
italki teacher since Dec 12, 2021
My name is Arran. I have been an English teacher in Japan for 12 years and I really enjoy living and working here!
I went to an international school in Spain as a teenager and I have really loved learning new languages and about different cultures since then. In addition to my native English language, I also speak Spanish and Japanese well, plus I am learning French and Dutch too, so I know first-hand how challenging learning a new language can be sometimes.
My hobbies include: learning languages, coding, bodybuilding, and rugby.
Me as a Teacher
I have been a professional teacher of English for more than 12 years now, 11 of which have been in the local context of Japan. During these 11 years I have been able to teach a wide range of different students at the junior high school, senior high school, and at the university level. I also have lots of experience teaching adult learners too. My experience means that I really understand the typical problems that Japanese English-learners usually have.
I am about to complete my Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. With my teaching and academic experience I am sure I can help you fulfill your learning goals!
My lessons & teaching style
As is true of any good teacher, my lessons will be adapted to your specific needs as a learner.
These could be based around a test you are aiming for like TOEIC, or TOEFL, it could be that you need basic conversation skills for an upcoming holiday, you want to study in an English speaking country, or your business is growing multi-nationally and you need to know how to communicate with customers appropriately.
Whatever your reason for learning English may be, we can discuss it, I can then prepare a course of study that will cover everything you need, and then we get started in achieving your goal!

after several lesson with Arran I can say that this teacher worth its weight in gold! firstly he has a very advanced Spanish level what is a very important advantage for me, he is also very implicated in the lessons, and really open minded so you can talk with him about any topic feeling comfortable, clearly I highly recommend him
