Richard Sutcliffe先生(英語)

  Hello IHCWAY students. My name is Richard from Halifax, West Yorkshire, England.
I have been working for IHCWAY for almost 6 months now, and in that time I have met many interesting new people from all sorts of backgrounds and abilities.
Of course, I was a little apprehensive about teaching at first, but as time went by and I got to know my students, I found teaching not to be as daunting as I originally expected. I actually enjoyed doing it, especially when I could see my students improve.
I can tell you from my own experience, it is vital to constantly target a student's language weakness if they ever wish to improve, and that does mean a lot of hard work, both in lesson time and at home. Repetition seems to be the key to this, as repetition forms habits that imprint in the student's mind.
I'm also always telling my students to read English texts in their own time (preferably aloud). Even if it's for 5/10 minutes a day. They can then see how the English language is structured.
Overall, I love the freedom IHCWAY gives you to pick and choose your lessons. It has given me the chance to customize my lifestyle, so not only do i get to meet a lot of new people and exchange cultural differences, but I also have enough free time to see the beauty of Japan.

Happy learning, Mina san.

Richard, England.
