Hello, I am very happy to meet you - My name is Kenny!
I am a TESOL and TEFL qualified teacher of English from London, in the United Kingdom.
In 2011, I came to Japan to teach English. So, I have a lot of experience teaching all ages of students from beginner level to advanced level.
My personality is very bright and positive with a cheerful style, so I want to enjoy talking with you about many interesting topics.
I really enjoy music, especially going to live events and concerts. Also, I have played rugby and many other sports since I was young. I love cooking and eating many delicious foods too, so please tell me about your favorite dishes and I am excited to hear about your recommendations.
Let's havefun and I'm looking forward to teaching you! :)
I graduated from London Metropolitan University School of Business with a degree in Music and Media Management. I can play the piano,guitar, saxophone,trumpetand the Japanese taiko drums (a little!). Also I like to DJ as a hobby and I always listen to a lot of new and old music in my free time.
I qualified as a TESOL and TEFL teacher while I was a university student to learn about how to become a strong teacher and how to help my students as much as possible.
Also, I studied abroad in America for one year in the University of Evansville, Indiana. I studied business, economics, social studies and many other interesting subjects. It was a great experience and I could meet many international students, including many interesting people from Japan for the first time. If you are interested in studying abroad, please talk with me about your ideas.
I know that English is an important global language and I hope that I can help you so that you can travel and communicate with many international people confidently in the future.
Teaching Career History
After graduating from University, I became an ALT in Japan. I worked in Akita Prefecture on the JET Programme. I was teaching in 4 Junior High Schools and 9 Elementary Schools in Oga city for 5 years. It was a wonderful experience and I really enjoyed meeting other teachers and students' families from the local area. Also, it gave me great experience with young learners and now I can teach children with a lot of confidence.
When I finished working in Akita, I moved to Morioka City and began working at one of the biggest Eikaiwa schools in Japan. At this school, I could get a lot of experience working with many adult students of all ages. Adults want to study English for many different reasons. I learned about the importance of changing my teaching style to suit each individual so that I can help everyone as much as possible. I was really impressed by every student's hard effort and ability.
Now, I am looking forward to having many new students with Eigox. I am excited to help you with your English goals and support your studies for the future. Watching students develop and grow their skills gives me a lot of satisfaction and positive energy.
My students tell me that I'm positive and easy to understand. They say that they get a lot of energy and motivation from me which helps them to continue enjoying their studies. It is important that students can grow their confidence, so I am very kind to my students and always try to encourage them to communicate as much as possible.
Improving your English ability is my number one goal. If you have specific requirements such as grammar, vocabulary, listening, reading, writing or pronunciation practice - or if you want to study for travel, work, or exams - then I will work hard to help you with all of your individual needs.
I believe that learning English is similar to many other activities in life, such as learning sports or music or art for example. With practice, anybody can be successful and improve their ability - especially if they practice their skills with a good coach.
