Hi! Nice to meet you.
I’m Melissa from Alberta, Canada but I was actually born in Finland. I graduated with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta in 2013, and I have been enjoying my life in Japan since 2014.
I have been teaching for 7 years in Japan, and before coming to FUTURE Jidoen I have been a teacher at an international school and some Eikaiwas. I love teaching children very much, and I aim to create fun and engaging lessons where all of my students can have fun and learn English.
I look forward to seeing everyone’s growth here at FUTURE Tabata.
Let’s have fun with English.
