Hello! My name is Takao Ueda. As you see from my name, I am a native speaker of Japanese, but I have lived in the USA for the past 24 years. My field of expertise is mathematics, but I have studied numerous subjects including computer science, economics, psychology, philosophy, and literature. In fact, I have a MS degree in Japan and a MA degree in the USA and was a PhD student in English at a US university.

·On-line Courses and Tutoring
Advanced English Writing: A, 0, THE, or -S?
Lack of articles such as "go to beach," "writers in Victorian period," wrong use of "a" and "an" such as "a furniture," "an advice," and invention of plural forms such as "various informations," "three furnitures" are found everywhere in the speeches and writings of well-educated Japanese people. In fact, how to use and not to use articles and plural forms is the hardest problem and the weakest point for Japanese people, yet neither teachers who are Japanese nor teachers who are native speakers have adequately addressed this problem that is uniquely Japanese. This course is a monolingual writing course intensively focused on this challenging problem, not a bilingual translation course. A requirement for the course is that students use an ESL dictionary, i.e. an English to English dictionary for non-native speakers of English. Another requirement is that the students and the instructor communicate with each other by E-mail in English only, and this is part of writing practice. By analyzing sentences in fields of their interest and composing their own, the students will increase their power of expression in English.
Textbook: A, 0, THE, or -S.
Fee: $40 for 4 weeks.
