Prof.Rick 155P カナダ - スカイプ英会話ならマイスカイイングリッシュ

Teacher profile


I’m Rick. I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada, and I've been living and working, teaching English, in beautiful Miyazaki, Japan for the past 16 years.


I’ve done private lessons. I’ve taught English in kindergarten classes, I’ve worked in elementary schools, conversation schools, community centers, and universities.

I've had the opportunity to help students of all ages, all English levels, and all backgrounds study and practice English—young children, teenagers, university students, businessmen, professionals, homemakers, and retired people.


For over 10 years I worked at the University of Miyazaki teaching nursing and medical students. I specialize in helping intermediate to advanced learners of English.


Whatever your purpose is for studying English—work, travel, study, TOEIC or TOEFL, or just enjoyable conversation, I have the experience to help you achieve your goals.


I think you’ll enjoy my lessons—I enjoy doing them! I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on Skype and My Sky English!


Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Seeya soon!
