Over 3 years teaching experience as a Native English Teacher living in Japan. Let's talk in English!
italki teacher since Jan 20, 2022
My name is James and I am from England but currently live in Japan. I have lived in Japan for over 3 years now and worked as an English Teacher in Tokyo for two and a half years.
I now work for a Japanese company but I love teaching English so also teach here!
Before living in Japan, I worked as a Cabin Crew in Dubai where I traveled to many different countries and met many people who wanted to learn English! If you would like to practice interviewing to become Cabin Crew, please see my Interview Class.
I am also a qualified Personal Fitness Trainer. If you want to talk about health and fitness, please ask!
Me as a Teacher
I am a very relaxed Teacher who enjoys seeing progress in my student's English level. I am an experienced English Teacher as well as a qualified Personal Fitness Trainer so teaching and coaching are something I very much enjoy.
As an English Teacher in Tokyo, many of my students were people ranging in different ages and most of them did not know any English at the beginning of our lessons so I am always very patient with my students and always encourage them not to be afraid to make mistakes! This is why we have lessons!
I enjoy talking with my students and learning about their interests.
My lessons & teaching style
My classes are mainly conversation based and people with any level of English are welcome.
I like to teach in a relaxed style meaning my classes are perfect for anyone who wants to improve their daily conversation skills. Don't worry about making mistakes!
I like to start our first lesson with introductions so I can understand where your current English level is and I can tailor your lessons according to your level.
Let's get started!
⚠️Lessons cannot be rescheduled or canceled within 24 hours of the start of the lesson and will still be charged. Thank you for your understanding. ⚠️

There are very interesting lessons. I do not have a high level of English and I was afraid that I would not be able to talk with a native speaker. But James organizes the lessons very well. James is not only speaks but also explains grammar. This teacher is very nice and positive person. Recommend.

I did a lot of lessons with different teachers on Italki since April. Definitely James is the best English Teacher. He did something I thought was impossible: to rebuild my confidence to speak English on daily meetings and to be confortable, so now I don't get nervous to talk anymore (and not even want to disappear anymore before or during the meetings! thanks James) .
James is also an excellent teacher and a very calm and fun person, he really makes me want to talk more and more in English.
I do recommend his lessons.

James is so kind and friendly!
He help me to speak English more naturally with polite teaching style. He always focus what I say and remember it even though my English is awkward.
Also, as the Japanese language learner, he understand language learner's pain and cheer me up not to lose motivation.
I highly recommend you to have a class with James!
