My name is Eli. I come from Slovakia and I study Chinese and Business. I am now an exchange student at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. I love Japanese language and culture so I hope I can learn a lot while being here in Kyoto. I like kids and I enjoy spending my time with them. I have been teaching English to two small kids before when I was in China aged between 4 and 10 two times a week for about a year. I think it was very nice so I would like to have a similar experience again. Apart from teaching small children, I have experience of taking care of small children both at work and my family. I used to work as an animator in Malta where one of my responsibilities was looking over the kids at the hotel´s kid´s club. At home, I usually take care of my 5 year old nephew and 2 year old niece. As of my interests, I like to spend time in nature, read books, make short vlogs, play musical instruments like Erhu or guitar and also study languages. I look forward to meeting you.

Eli was ready for her Skype interview on time and had questions prepared for us. She is easy to talk to and introduced herself well. With her experience working at a resort's kids club, she is not only good at coming up with creative activities but also has experience being a leader!
