I’m looking forward to teaching you this year. I like to teach:

  • I have been interested in language since I was a child, particularly in the history of English words.
  • I am interested in British culture, especially in those parts of British culture which have had a large impact on the world, including Japan.
  • I enjoy helping people to understand things more deeply and to develop their intelligence by making finer and finer distinctions.
