Hey!! Thank you for visiting my profile!!
A few things about me: I was in the military (Navy) for a year, and I've worked several other jobs over the years. I've been backpacking around Europe, and my life goal is to travel the whole world!! I like anything adventurous and fun!! I also really enjoy helping and working with others.
My 3 favorite things in life.. Cats, chocolate, and coffee!!
I'm very understanding, extremely open minded, friendly, and easy to get along with.
I lived in Italy for awhile and struggled with learning Italian while there. I don't remember much now, though, since I didn't continue to practice it. I took Spanish for 3 years in high school, but, like Italian, I have forgotten a lot from lack of practice. I lived in the UK for about 6 months before and loved it there!!
My parents lived in Germany for 6 years, and I would stay with them off and on a lot. I am now hopping around different countries in Europe. I have also visited Portugal a lot because my boyfriend's parents used to live there.
I am currently teaching myself Japanese with an app on my iPhone and by watching anime.
My teaching style varies from person to person and even on subjects. People learn things differently. I like to teach the best way for people to understand.
Take me for example, I learn best by writing things down or just doing things.
I pride myself on teaching more natural English rather than 'textbook' English.
I look forward to meeting you!!

***ami1964リーディングレッスンは初めてでした。レッスンの進め方はシンプルで無駄がないです。まず先生が読んでくれるのでそれをお手本に同じセンテンスを読み、分からないところなどを質問して、発音に問題があるところを指摘してもらって修正という流れでした。 読みづらかった箇所や意味のよくわからなかったところなど、すべてをフィードバックしてくださいました。ありがたいことです。 今日音読した本はティーン向けの本でしたが、先生も私もこれを原作にした映画を見たことがあったので、同じ感動とまでは言いませんが、 そういうようなものを共有できたのはとてもうれしかったです。 読書も嫌いではないし、夢中になることもあり、また語学力を高めるには最適ということは解っています。 しかし、一人でただ読んでいる時は、よく分からないところは曖昧なまま読み飛ばすことが多かったりしますが、ちゃんとわかっていたほうが先を読むときに楽しさは増しますよね。一人でここまでできないことなので、やはりたまには先生と一緒に読んで理解を深めることも大切ですね。音読の楽しさを再認識しました。English Reading Lesson 30 1,200Jul 10, 2018
