About makeni

Hi! I'm Makeni. I am graduate of Bachelor of Arts and my major is Economics. I also have 18 units of Education. I was also an online community English tutor for one year and four months, which was a wonderful experience for me. I also teach English to Japanese and Chinese at a private online school in Beijing and Japan for one year.

I like surfing the internet and watching Japanese anime. I'm very much into web publishing so I make product reviews or articles during my free time. I love meeting new people and making friends. I will try my best to teach you English lesson. I hope to conduct a lesson with you soon. You can tell me if you want lessons or just pure conversation.

I like to surf a lot so I am online most of the time. If you're interested in doing language exchange through Skype, contact me.
