Introduction:

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

Hello! ¡Hola! Здравствуйте! 안녕하세요! 大家好! Bonjour! Hallå!
My name is Anna.
I'm from San Francisco, and right now I live in Moscow. (Currently in Moscow for a few months)
My native language is English(American), and I have a very good level in Japanese and Russian.
I go to Japan very often, and love to travel. I want to learn as many languages as I can and talk with people all around the world.
I have a passion for learning and teaching, and wish to share my knowledge with others!

I customize my lessons around my student's goals. In my lessons I can help with pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, etc. I help my students prepare for tests like TOEIC and TOEFL. I've helped students prepare for interviews and presentations as well.

Overall I want my students to have fun and enjoy learning English:)

I look forward to teaching you!

はじめまして、Anna(杏奈)といいます。
サンフランシスコで生まれ育ちました。今はモスクワに住んでいます。
母語は英語で、日本語とロシア語ができます。
頻繁に日本に行っています!今のところ、札幌、小樽、愛媛、香川、高知、和歌山、大阪、神戸、東京に行ったことがあります。
趣味は・・言語を勉強することです!(笑)複数の言語をマスターしたいです。
(日本語を勉強している理由ですが、いつか日本語で小説を出版したいです)そして日本の音楽がけっこう好きです。少し古いですけど、尾崎豊とかとっても好きです。サカナクション、椎名林檎、スピッツ、など聴いています。

私は7年間英語を教えています。よく日本人とロシア人の生徒がいます。この3年間、日本国内や海外に住んでいる日本人に英語を教え、初心者から流暢な人までいます。私の授業のスタイルはさまざまです。生徒の希望や目標に応じて授業の内容・やり方をじっくり考えて準備しています。フリトークでもいいですし、プレゼンを一緒に準備してもいいです。TOEIC、TOEFLの準備もしています。できるだけ生徒の目標に向かって近づけよう!という態度でやっています。
よろしくお願いします。

NOTE: This is a common question, so I will write about it here. Some students ask me what my heritage is, and if I have any Asian blood in me ( I don't think I look Asian at all, but a lot of students have asked this 😅 ) I am half Jewish and the other half is a mix of European heritages.
よくある質問ですが、一応自己紹介に答えを書こうと思いました。時折生徒から祖先について聞かれることがあります。そして、少し不思議な質問なんですが、アジアの血が少し引いているのか聞かれることでもあります。私は50%ユーダ人で、他の50%はヨッローパのミックスです。ユーダ人の血のほうが強いですので、髪がとっても厚くて、サロンに行くときは美容師たちがいつも困ってしまいます(笑)しかし、そのおかげでかつらなどは一生必要ないですネ( 😄 )

There is another question I get commonly asked.
"Why do you study so many languages?"
That's easy to answer. Because it's fun : ) !
あとはこれもよく聞かれますが・・・。
「どうしてそのたくさん言語を勉強しているの?」
答えは簡単です!楽しいからです⭐️
