Hello! My name is Ryan Petersen and I’m originally from Orange County, California, USA. I studied at New York University with the dream of one day becoming an English Writing professor. I have been in Japan for one year now and I previously taught at a public elementary school in Nasushiobara, Tochigi. I take great joy in teaching children how they can use English as a tool to communicate with the world. At Universe Kids Nakanobu, I am so grateful for the opportunity to interact with so many great (and cute!) children. Thank you and hope to meet you soon!
Hi everyone! My name is Cynthia Evans, and I am fluent in Japanese and English. I have spent most of my life growing up in Yokohama, Japan, and attended an American school from Kindergarten to High School. I lived in the United States for a few years and obtained a degree in Geography from Pennsylvania State University. I love teaching children about different countries, cultures, Earth Science, and Environmental science. I feel a great sense of satisfaction and happiness when I can see that children are learning and having fun simultaneously. I love children and animals very much. I look forward to meeting many children in the near future and sharing the joy and excitement of fun learning!
