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?

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.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
