italki teacher since Dec 6, 2021
Hello! My name is Jibby or Akima, whichever you prefer. I am from Japan and now study in the Emirates. I speak four languages fluently (English, French, Japanese, Tunisian Arabic) and have studied two more (German and Turkish). I love to draw and paint and becoming a teacher has been a dream of mine for the longest time. I have done a lot of sports back in the day (gymnastics, swimming, handball, basketball, and kickboxing) then I worked at a Turkish mosque for a year.
Me as a Teacher
I have been tutoring people of all ages ranging from six to 35. Not only language, but Science, Maths, and Piano. I pride myself in my organization skills, as well as how flexible my time management can be at the same time. I can teach by-the-book or simply by talking and practicing. My goal is to make my students reach their goal in whatever they are trying to learn.
I specialize mostly on the arts of the English language, so academic writing and literature are a forte. I have helped someone get accepted in a university by polishing their essays, and helped another university student pass their final exams with flying colours.
My lessons & teaching style
As mentioned forehand, I can teach by-the-book, or more interacting. I leave it to the student to decide what is their preferred teaching method. I do specialize however in very organized and square-like presentations with interactions, or learning through reading books and talking (about the book, or any subject at all). What I should importantly note is that I do not have a textbook, so teaching would be mostly verbal and reading through online sources.
