Private lessons for disability person in Tokyo

I look for a tutor teacher who teaches me English. But I have hearing problem. If I wear hearing aids, I can hear some sounds, but I can't undestand words. It's close to deaf levels. I've tried to apply private lessons through websites, I couldn't find. Their answer: I've never had any experience to teach English for disability people, I can't help you." I want to learn two things. I'm planning to live in foreign countries. I'd like to improve my reading and writing, chatting by writing. And, as much as I can, I'd like to try learn lip-reading and pronunciation. I don't know how to find. Could up give me any information?

I'm a Japanese girl. I love watching dramas/movies, reading books, cooking, surfing on the Internet , photography and swimming.
I really like learning foreign languages! I focus on learning English and sign language, but I used to learn Greek and Turkish before.

    That's difficult... Maybe an American Sign Language teacher would be helpful? I recommend using a site like https://ja.duolingo.com/ to improve reading and writing, finding online friends who you can chat with in English, and watching movies in English to practice lip reading. These (Rachel's English on Youtube) pronunciation videos with subtitles are really good: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvn_XCl_mgQmt3sD753zdJA Good luck!

    Similar to helloalissa's suggestion, maybe you could ask around a group like Japanese ASL Signers Society: http://www.npojass.org/english Maybe they might have some contacts or know of some teachers who can help.

    The eikaiwa Gaba has one-on-one (man-to-man) lessons, so they are personalised just for you. They have some disabled students, but I don't know about deaf students. Maybe you can have a free trial lesson with them to try?

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
