About AmandaHello! I am from Seattle, home of Starbucks, Microsoft & Boeing. I study natural resource management and geospatial technology, and for fun I like to travel, play soccer, and learn new languages! I also do language exchanges with international students in Seattle, and I am excited to be able to meet more language learners on this site. I have experience teaching English in Shenzhen, China (3 months) and in Osaka, Japan (one year), to students of all different ages. I love to see my students improve and feel more comfortable speaking English. I know learning a new language can be difficult, so I want to make it fun for you. We can practice speaking about any topic you like, or work on pronunciation, grammar, and idioms and slang. I hope to meet you soon!
