Who is Kei?
CertaLingual began in 2017, however, Kei's teaching experience started in 2007 when her language exchange partners questioned common rules and expressions used in English. She spent many hours enthusiastically researching answers for them, creating teaching materials, and rediscovering her native language.
Kei enjoys learning just as much as she enjoys teaching. She has studied several languages, including a few Asian, Romance, and different Sign languages. Her experience in learning and failing to learn some languages has resulted in her friendly and practical approach to teaching conversational English. She is also an advocate for minority language rights, including endangered language preservation.
Kei has a master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MTESOL) and is certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). Her areas of expertise are in language management and confidence building.

If you have a genuine interest in something, you absolutely can learn it.
You are not a bad student— you just seem to lack time.
