I love to sing. I’m not a bad singer either but when it comes to karaoke I let loose and it’s not always great haha. But, I always have a great time with friends though!

私は歌うことが大好きです。歌は下手じゃないんだけど、カラオケになると気が緩んでしまって、いつもうまくいかないんだ、ハハハ。でも、友達とはいつも楽しい時間を過ごしていますよ。

I love to build things! During the pandemic I was able to spend more time on my passion and the DCM home center saw me a lot! I have made many things since then, including an office desk and a chair!

私はものを作るのが大好きです!パンデミックの時は、自分の情熱により時間を使うことができ、DCMのホームセンターもたくさん見ました! それ以来、オフィスの机や椅子など、いろいろなものを作ってきました!

What do you think is special about GnoKids compared to other English Schools?

他の英会話スクールと比べて、グノキッズの特徴は何だと思いますか?

I love the atmosphere here most of all. The team teaching method ensures that students are better able to receive the help they may need at any time during class. Having two native level English speaking teachers, who are equally passionate about providing a great learning experience, is something I think makes GnoKids truly great. It also really helps the students to pick up on what’s being said, even if it’s between the two teachers.
What is most important to you when teaching kids?

お子さまを教えるときに最も重要なことはどのようなことですか?

That they are engaged. I think in order to learn a different language children also have to be interested, so making learning fun is essential. When something is fun, it’s easier to try even if you know you’ll make mistakes. And making mistakes is simply a part of learning. I always strive to make a connection with my students in the classroom as well so even if they are at a part of the lesson that’s a little bit hard for them they are able to try, knowing that even if make a mistake that that’s ok.
What do you think has helped your students improve the most?

どのようなことが一番お子さまの成長の助けになっていると思いますか?

I think having teachers who care is a big factor. My students are more open to all the experiences they will have in classes and know that I will always be cheering for them. Even small improvements are praised and this helps them to be more confident and take more chances to actually practice speaking, listening and reading in every class. I think this helps strengthen them.
Where do you want to go in the world?

世界中でどこに行きたいですか?

I want to travel all over the world actually. I love learning about different people, cultures and having new experiences. One of the best things about being in Japan is being closer to different countries on my list. The next place I want to go to is Thailand. I already love their food and would love to see more of their landscape and architecture.
What are your hobbies?

趣味は何ですか?

II love reading books and playing video games. I love the fantasy genre and getting lost in their world is great relaxation.
What is your favorite food in Japan?

日本でお気に入りの食べ物は何ですか?

I love noodles!! So ramen and yakisoba give me joy.
What do you miss most about Jamaica?

ジャマイカで一番恋しいことは何ですか?

I miss the food the most! And my friends and family too, but, mostly the food haha. I’ve been lucky to find some places that sell ingredients we often use back home though. Cook delicious Jamaican dishes right here makes me very happy.
