Hi, everybody! I'm Jonathan. Currently I'm the English Teacher at a Japanese speaking nursery school in Koto Ward.
I moved to Japan March 2015. Before that I spent 2 years in Korea at an elementary and middle school as the English Teacher. Before that in 2011 I started teaching English to children of visitors from South Korea. Since coming to Japan I've worked at English Conversation Schools and Nursery Schools.
Currently I am studying the Japanese language, working at a Japanese nursery school and teaching private English lessons. I've been working with small children since my arrive in Tokyo March 2015.
My hobbies include watching Japanese dramas, eating out and spending time with my church brothers and sisters. Watching Japanese dramas has been a big help in helping me retain what I learn in my formal study environment. I enjoy dining on different cuisines Tokyo has to offer. My church friends are my biggest support in encouraging me to continually striving to reach my dreams in becoming the best English teacher I can be!
I enjoy going to the park with children and watching them play on the playground equipment or run around the grassy areas as well as running with them, releasing their energy. While indoors I enjoy playing board games or any make believe games they teach me.
I also enjoy playing with dogs and cats!
I have been working with young children since arriving in Japan 2015. My experience includes working at both an international nursery school and Japanese nursery school as the English teacher and also assisting with childcare with children ages 1 - 6 years old.
Outside of work I babysit my friend's children ages 2 - 6 occasionally. Usually I would take them to a toy store to play with the toys on display, to a park or to a museum.

Jonathan helped with prepping my 5 years old son for an English online interview. He prepared well and navigated the session well so that my son can practice answering many questions online.
He is a grate person. He read books for my son and my son really enjoys it. I am glad that we found a grate sitter for my son.
He is a sincere, calm and kind person.
Our son loved him and enjoyed talking to him.
