"An afternoon English lunch lesson...in Shinjuku"


Cost: 20,000 yen. This fee covers a basic arrangement of one lesson, once a week, 4 times a month at 5000 yen/lesson hour.
Other arrangements are easily arranged upon request. (See Lesson Arrangement Detail below.)

Benefits: My private lessons are longer, less expensive than any eikaiwa lessons you may take. You get the benefit of a more experienced and educated teacher who understands Japanese culture. You learn in a convenient, comfortable natural atmosphere with food, dessert or drink of your choice. It's simply a more enjoyable lesson.

Curriculum: My conversation classes help you to build your vocabulary, correct your grammar, and improve natural English fluency. My lessons give you the confidence you need to communicate in social situations, when traveling abroad, and in the business world. Cultural tips are provided to help you overcome cultural misunderstands encountered in the real world.

Just 1 minute from Shinjuku Station's gate, in a comfortable quiet spacious dining area... just you and I.

We can discuss everything from travel, culture, food, and the arts... whatever you want.

You can be assured that I am able to converse intelligently on a wide variety of topics.

Your one-hour lesson will be comfortable, very enjoyable, informative, fun, and most of all, whatever you hope it to be.

Let's relax, talk, eat cake, drink tea, and enjoy...!
