私は13年以上にわたり、愛知県の様々なインターナショナルプリスクールや幼稚園で英語を教えてきました。せっかく英語に触れ、使えるようになったお子様方が、小学校に入り同じような英語教育を続けられないのを目の当たりにし、残念に感じてきました。 インターに通ったことのあるお子様が、英語を忘れず、更に使える英語を獲得していくため、小学生年齢のクラスに特化しカリキュラムを組んだ英語教室を立ち上げました。日本での英語を使わない生活と、英語学校で学んだ英語の溝をなくすことが私のカリキュラムの大きな目的です。お子様方だけでなく、親御様にも英語を楽しくたくさん使ってほしいとも強く思っています。TEFL、TEYL、CDA、カリフォルニアコースト大学教育学博士課程を修了し、オリジナルに作成したテキストと共に We Can! やLet’s Study Phonicsを使いながら、英語を身近に使っていきましょう。
I have taught English in Aichi for over 16 years at some of the best international preschools and eikaiwas. I am certified in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), TEYL (Teaching English to Young Learners), Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential, and have a Masters Degree in Education from California Coast University. My goal is to make your learning experience interesting and increase you or your children’s comprehension and usage.
I know from my own experience that high quality classes for elementary aged students who have gone through many of the international preschools in Aichi does not exists in a reasonably priced format. My purpose is to help fill that gap with my course curriculum. I have also seen that many parents who send their children to English classes do not have a stable English foundation to help their children study independently with out input from the language teacher so I will offer adult classes during the evening hours using the same cost structure. I truly believe that I have the skills and training to help any age group.
At Cup-of-Joe we use We Can! a unique seven-level series which has an easy to evaluate 384 goal spiral based language system, Let’s Study Phonics, Finding Out, and Hip Hip Hooray with supplementary material from my originally prepared texts. Adult classes can be more specialized but we will use Everyday Survival English, Everyday English for Young People, Performance Conversation Themes and English for Everyday Activities along with my own library of conversation based eikaiwa books.I will also offer courses for the Eiken, TOEIC and TOEFL tests and I have developed a special freight forwarding course using Freight Forwarding Goods in Transit.
At cup-of-joe we offer many short term study courses. Students that have specific needs can consult via email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help create a specific study plan to suit your needs. If you have to take a test in International Freight Forwarding or need help passing the English portion of your Junior High School, High School or College English classes I can help you strengthen your English foundation to pass through these life hurdles.
