*Nov 2021 Update: Shortly I will be taking a maternity break, and will not be available to teach for a few months. For the next couple of weeks, my lesson slots will be open only a few days in advance, so please check my profile regularly if you'd like to take a lesson!
Hello! My name is Aisling - but you can call me Ash!
I'm from Scotland (UK) but I currently live in Kyoto. I've been living in Japan for 3 years now, where I have been teaching kids and adults English, teaching Yoga and Pilates plus the occasional performance/project as a dancer.
As you can guess, my interests are dance (especially ballet), Yoga, Pilates but I also love to read, travel, visit art exhibitions and watch movies.
I have been a teacher in different fields for several years now; and I really love my job as I get to help people and share my knowledge. I always try to ensure students learn something from my classes, whatever their level; and that they feel motivated and positive about learning.
I'm excited to meet many of you and help you with your English language goals! My lessons will focus on natural, everyday conversation that will allow you to be comfortable using English in a realistic and useful way. I am a patient and encouraging teacher, with a friendly manner. I can help you with pronunciation, vocabularly, grammar - anything that will help you improve your English!
