 ●ネイティブ講師 David Fortune(デイビッド フォーチュン)アイルランド出身

 

Hello! I’m delighted and very grateful to have the opportunity to teach at IB English in Zama. I’m from Tipperary, Ireland and I am 25 years old. I attended Limerick Institute of Technology, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Video and Sound Technology.

 

I have been teaching for about four years. I was trained by the British Council where I received a Cambridge qualification in teaching English as a second language (CELTA). I have taught English in 7 countries. I taught in an international kindergarten in Beijing, China. I have taught in an English academy in Seoul, Korea where I taught mostly elementary and junior high school students. I taught in another English academy in Taranto, Italy where I mostly taught high school and adult students. I have taught in English summer schools in France, Spain and the UK. While in the UK I worked for Oxford International. I love Japan and I’m glad that I can continue my career here.

 

When teaching younger students I believe a strong emphasis on phonics as well as creating a friendly environment. When teaching teenagers I believe it is important them to engage them by taking an interest in their interests and trying to get them to be able to express their ideas using the English they have learned throughout their childhood. While this is also important for adults, I believe adults already have clear goals and I will customize our lessons to best meet your needs.

 

My hobbies include photography, going to live music shows, hiking, studying Japanese and traveling. I hope to see as much Japan as possible and want to learn about its culture. I want to gain new experiences whenever possible so I would love to hear about your hobbies in class.

 

Learning English is very important as society is becoming more and more internationally focused. I hope to see you soon! Let`s have fun learning English together!

 

 

こんにちは!IBイングリッシュ座間校で教える機会が持て光栄です。私はアイルランドのティペラリー出身の25歳です。Limerick Institute of Technology映像音声技術を学び、学位を取得しました。指導経験は4年ほどで、CELTAの資格を所持しています。これまで、中国のインターナショナル幼稚園で、韓国の英語学校では主に小中学生に、イタリアの英語学校では高校生と大人の生徒様に、フランス・スペイン・イギリスのサマースクールでも教えてきました。日本が大好きで、ここでキャリアを積めることが嬉しいです。小さなお子様へ教えるときは、親しみやすい環境を作りながら、フォニックスに力を入れていきたいと思います。学生の生徒様に教えるときは、興味を引き出して、英語を使い自分の考えを表現できるように、大人の生徒様ははっきりとした目標をお持ちでしょうから、目標に応じたレッスンを、と考えています。趣味は写真、音楽ライブ、ハイキング、日本語の勉強、旅行です。できるだけ多くの日本を経験したく、日本文化も学びたいと思います。可能な限り新しい経験を求めています。レッスンであなたの趣味について聞かせてもらえるなら、大変嬉しく思います。国際化が進み、英語学習は大事だと思います。お会いできることを楽しみにしています。一緒に楽しく英語を学びましょう!
