ENGLISH: Hello! My name is Elissa. I have been living in Tokyo for two years. I am half Japanese and half American, raised in California. My native language is English, but I also speak Japanese and French. I am trained in child and infant CPR/ first aid. I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, and have experience with children from 2 years old to 15. My favorite thing to do with children is read them stories, and make up games with them. I love enjoying how creative they are and engaging their imaginations. I also like to watch them learn; I am an experienced tutor just because it makes me so happy to see kids have that magical moment when they realize just how smart they are. I have a talent for "difficult" children, or hyperactive ones; perhaps because I was once a kid like that too. Feel free to ask me for any other details. Pets are okay. Thank you!

FRANÇAIS: Bonjour! Je m'appelle Elissa. J'habite à Tokyo depuis deux ans. Je suis de Californie et je suis américaine et japonaise. Je peux parler français, japonais, et anglais. Je suis une étudiante dans l'université de Waseda. J'ai dix ans d'expérience avec les enfants, 2 ans a 14 ans. J'ai travaille a mon eglise en Californie et Tokyo depuis trois ans. Aussi, j'ai travaillé pour ma famille et des autres depuis j'avais 12 ans. J'adore lire avec les enfants parce-que j'aime de voir leur imagination et l'explorer avec ils. Aussi, j'aime aider les enfants avec l'école, parce-qu'ils sont très intelligents et je pense qu'il faut que encourager les enfants. Si vous cherchez pour une personne qui peut prendre soin pour vos enfants y peut parler français (assez bien), envoyez-moi un message, s'il vous plaît! Les animaux:d'accord! Merci beaucoup!
