My Story(英語)

Country of Origin: USA
I’m into Traveling, History, and Eating Spicy Food.


My name is Jonathan and I am from America. Chicago is my hometown but I have also lived in England and of course Japan. Many people call me Jon. Please call me Jon or Jonathan both names are ok!

I was a teacher in the US for several years before I came to Japan. I enjoy teaching students new things and helping them learn. 3 years ago I started teaching in Japan in Fukuyama City in Hiroshima Prefecture. I really enjoyed living in that area and eating Momijimanju. I also made many good friends.

After that, I lived for a year in Aichi Prefecture in Toyota City. I enjoyed traveling to many nearby areas like Gifu Prefecture and Mie Prefecture. It made me see many different areas of Japanese Culture and nature. I was happy to speak Japanese in daily life situations. Though my Japanese is still not very good I enjoy using it with my friends around Japan.

I moved to Akashi and started working for OEC about 1 year ago. It has been great to meet so many of you. I enjoy teaching English to caring students and learning from my students too. I mostly teach in the Akashi school but you may see me occasionally in the Umeda school!

I`m very happy living in Japan but I do want to travel more. In the future I hope to travel around Asia and Europe. Do you like to travel? If so I`m sure we can talk about many interesting places around the world. One of my favorite travel destinations is Finland. Finland is a beautiful country with so much beautiful nature and so many kind people. It is a little cold but I recommend a trip there if you want to try a very unique special country.

Thank you for reading my introduction! OEC has many nice teachers from all over the world. In your classes be sure to ask us many questions about anything you are interested in! Don`t be shy! You can do it 
