Throughout my time here at Amity, it has been both a privilege and an honor to be Haruka’s teacher. From our first lesson together 3 years ago, she has continued to excel in all areas of her study. Each year, Haruka finds ways to challenge herself even further, whether it is through extra test prep lessons, seasonal seminars, interactive courses, or practicing in her self-study books at home. I am so proud to see all of her hard work and dedication paying off. Beyond her studies, Haruka’s positive attitude and bubbly personality make her an absolute joy to be around and to teach! She brightens up any room with her smile and sets an exceptional example for other students at Amity, including her baby sister, Misaki. Thank you Haruka, for making my job as your teacher so fulfilling and fun!

Throughout my time in Toyko, I have very much been in awe of how nice and respectful Japanese people are. My student, Soya, is a perfect example of this wonderful kindness. Even while his schedule is filled with studying English or running track, I find that he always has time to please the people around him.
Soya’s name has become synonymous with hard-work, dedication and focus. Often times, I am tasked with finding more and more difficult vocabulary to supplement his textbooks with. Soya has always been a student which I have complete and total confidence in. There is no challenge that I wouldn’t support him for. In fact, it was very impressive that he was able to take the TOEIC exam and do so well! Soya always reminds me of the reasons I love being a teacher.

紗英ちゃんは1歳からアミティーに通い、今年度より独り立ちのクラスで一生懸命に取り組んでいます。また、今年度から家庭学習ドリルもスタートをし、毎週“How many pages do you want to do?”と聞くと“Five!”と答えてくれます。今年のハロウィンセミナーでは、ハロウィンにちなんだ単語を学習し、単語の宝探しを楽しんでいた姿が印象的でした。これからも元気にたくさん英語に触れていく紗英ちゃんの成長を楽しみにしています！
Both quick and insightful, Rin is an absolute pleasure to teach. Her English skills are blooming. She enjoys speaking about the weather, and asking her sister questions in English. She’s been sitting in on her sisters classes since she was a baby, and even as an infant would compete with her big sister for “top English dog”. I look forward to her sunny personality and sparkling wit each and every week.

Tsubasa is growing nicely as an English speaker. He’s starting to ask questions and formulate his own conversation topics based on his own interests and passions. Watching a student grow and unlock more and more English to use both in the class and in daily life is an honor. Tsubasa is especially gifted with memory games and anything involving speed of thought. I look forward to seeing him exceed in Eiken 3 this year.
レッスン回数を重ねる毎に、教師の英語に反応を示し、言葉はまだながら英語らしい音を発してくれるようになりました。Here you are. Thank you.等、お母様と英語でコミュニケーションを取りながら、指示通りに動作もできています。レッスン毎に成長が見られ、お母様もその成長に驚かれています。ご家庭では見られない姿や新たな発見を一緒に共有させて頂き、共に成長を見届けられる事を教師として本当に嬉しく感じています。
Aoi is one of my more fun loving students. She knows how to count to 20 and knows all of colors and shapes. Aoi knows all the letters of the alphabet, and is learning how to read by sounding them out. In class she really likes our 3 times fast activities and phonics chants. Aoi’s English speaking has improved over the past year I’ve been teaching. Keep practicing and you will be great at English!
Riko is an incredibly smart student. She is able to remember the vocabulary and her speaking ability is remarkable. I am looking forward to teaching her more challenging material heading into next year.
