I’m an English teacher from the UK. I’ve been teaching for about four years in Japan and online.
I love to support students in their language learning.
It has been an amazing experience to meet students learning English from all over the world. And it has been a joy to learn about each person’s hopes, dreams and experiences of life.

When I’m not teaching, I’m also a student learning Japanese and Chinese. I started learning these languages in my 30’s. So I was quite a late starter, but that hasn’t stopped me.
It has been a pretty cool thing to learn about and experience the Chinese and Japanese worlds, and I can’t wait to learn and experience more.
It hasn’t all been easy. Along the way, I found out I didn’t know how to study on my own effectively. In fact, I wasted a lot of time studying.
However, with the help of some great teachers (in class and online ), and a great many resources that are available on the internet, I now have a study method that works for me.
This blog is about the study methods I’ve found to be useful, from my time as a learner of Chinese and Japanese, or through my English teaching.
