橋本ナターシャ 講師 Natasha HASHIMOTO
I am currently a PhD candidate (Education/Applied Linguistics) and I spend a great deal of my non-teaching time working on my degree. However, I still manage to enjoy holidays. I have traveled to over 30 countries, but my favorite destinations are Indonesia and Southern Africa. I also scuba dive and enjoy taking underwater macro photos.
Before becoming a teacher, I had several different jobs, including working in healthcare and as a translator. I still freelance as a translator between Croatian, English, and Japanese.
As a teacher, I love introducing metacognitive strategies to my students. I particularly enjoy teaching speaking and writing courses. My current research interests include language assessment (fairness, entrance exams), migration, and labor and human rights issues in TESOL. I won two research grants to conduct research on the eikaiwa industry in 2018/2019. With a colleague, I am now writing a book about eikaiwa schools.
