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?

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
