I strive to provide professional and efficient lessons, but I also love for students to have fun!🎈

♫⁺・*:..。♫⁺*゚¨゚゚・*:..。♫⁺*゚¨゚゚・🎶 Hello! ¡Hola! 안녕하세요! 大家好! 🎶♫⁺・*:..。♫⁺*゚¨゚゚・*:..。♫⁺*゚¨゚゚・
My name is Anna. I'm from San Francisco, I currently live in Japan, Kagawa prefecture. My native language is English(American), and I have a very good level in Japanese and Russian. These days, I primarily study Korean, Spanish and Chinese(Taiwanese/Mandarin). I can't speak in these languages well yet, but I hope to improve that this year. Some people call me a "language otaku". To be exact, I am passionate about learning in general. I'm fascinated by different cultures and can spend hours reading about them. I love to watch lectures or listen to podcasts about neurology, philosophy, economics, and other subjects in my free time. I've been primarily studying behavioral economics and neuroscience(specifically when it comes to languages and economic decisions). Of course, I don't always study - when I want to chill out, I love to watch Youtube, listen to music, draw on my tablet, make comics, or read a book. Sometimes I participate in volunteer events or workshops in Kagawa. I'm kind of a hippy so I love to go on long walks and take photos of the nature around me.

はじめまして、Annaといいます。 サンフランシスコから来ました。長年モスクワで住んでいましたが、結婚して香川県に引っ越しました。母語は英語で、日本語とロシア語ができます。最近はスペイン語と韓国語と中国語を集中して勉強しています。趣味は知的な(intellectual)ポッドキャストとレクチャーを聞くこと、読書(特に日本の小説を読んでいます)、料理、アニメーション、カラオケ、いろいろな国の音楽を聴くこと、落書きすることなどです。よく新しいことを挑戦していますので、私の性格というと、好奇心が強くて想像力が豊かです。 教え方に関しては、生徒の目標やレベルをぜんぶ熟考した上で、相応しい内容を選んで、余裕を持って授業を行います。簡単に言えば、プロ感のある柔軟で楽しい授業に目指しています。 以下の内容を教えたことがあります。 試験準備(TOEIC/TOEFL/EIKEN/etc) 、大学の面接 (特にビジネス専門学校) 、ビジネス英語(メール/プレゼンテーション/) 、スラング(同僚と使うスラング/友達と使うスラング) 、国によって文化の違い(特にビジネス文化) 、言葉のニュアンス(ビジネス会話や日常会話で) 等々・・・。 生徒たちを驚かせるほどタイピングが速いですが (幼いときにタイピングコンテストで優勝しました✨)、そのおかげで授業の後ちゃんと復習ができます ☺︎

P.S. 日本語対応可能です。(翻訳も可能(ロシア語&日本語&英語))

UPDATE: I use an interactive whiteboard in my lessons now.
インタラクティブホワイトボードを使い始めています!リアルタイムで生徒と書けます。スクリーンショットは撮りやすいですし、覚えるように絵を描けますし、授業の後は復習しやすいです。特に視覚型学習者(visual learner)には!
