Hi! My name is Jillian but it's perfectly okay to call me Jiji. Nice to meet you all!
I am 28 years old from Rizal, Philippines. I am very friendly and curious. I like learning about new cultures and ideas, even languages! I actually speak five languages (English, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese). My hobbies include reading Haruki Murakami books, reading manga, and baking among other things.
I want to teach English to Japanese students. That's because I have plans to study and live in Japan in the future. I want to learn as much as I can about the culture and traditions of Japan while bettering myself as an English teacher. I am very passionate about Japan, its people, and its culture. I think it is a beautiful country with equally wonderful people.
My strengths include teaching basic grammar, vocabulary, proper pronunciation, and speaking skills through free-flowing conversation. I am also very patient and understanding. I learned several foreign languages so I know how hard and intimidating it is. I am very good at letting students take their time and learn at their own pace.
I am very excited to meet you all. I hope everyone has a nice day!
