Greeting

Hi there! My name is Scott and I have been working at AKA for about 10 years. I first came to Japan in the 1990s and have been here for over 20 years now. I can speak Japanese, but unfortunately my kanji is stuck at an elementary school level… Fate brought me to Japan.
My cousin and I were both working in Boston and would meet every weekend for brunch. One day, she was talking about Japan and I didn’t know she lived here for a year, I was fascinated and quit my job in advertising and three months later ended up in Yokohama. The culture and traditions were so different and new to me, I was amazed and looked forward to learning something different everyday. I have taken classes in or have participated in various arts of Japan; calligraphy, tea ceremony, sumie, and of course festivals.
I’m passionate about many things, running is one of them. I’ve done the Mt. Fuji marathon a few times, the Paris marathon and the world’s toughest marathon – the Inca Trail marathon in Peru. These days, I prefer trail runs to marathons, they’re more difficult, require much more concentration and are a lot more fun.
Traveling is another passion of mine, I’ve been to over 50 countries and have been to 37 prefectures, I worked as a photographer in Japan so was able to travel to many different places. I’m also: a movie buff, I watch about a movie a week, a sports and outdoor freak, a lover of music and a pretty good cook.
As I said before, I have been at AKA for about 10 years, I’ve been teaching for more than 20 and have taught every level from 3 to 85 years old. I’m very passionate about my work and make it my goal as well as yours to make you a better speaker. I hope to see you soon!

Greeting

Hello, my name’s Kevin and I can speak English, Spanish, Catalan and Japanese, I have both Irish and Spanish nationalities.
From a very young age I have spent summers with my family in Ireland and in Scotland until I started my college degree in Barcelona at the age of 18. I have really good memories of my summer stays in Dublin and Aberdeen. When I graduated from university I decided to travel to another country and learn a new language, that’s why I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to teach English and Spanish in Japan.
I have always been fascinated by its culture and that’s when I decided to make my move. I like to travel, go sightseeing, paint miniature models and practice sports, like judo and jiu-jitsu. Currently I am living in Kawagoe, which is a really nice town where you can visit ‘little Edo’ as you stroll down its beautiful streets.
My favorite places in Japan are Nikko in Tochigi and Kinkakuji temple in Kyoto. Seeing the temple and its garden was a jaw-dropping experience. I have been teaching for 7 years to all age groups, from children to adults and I also have experience teaching all levels, from beginner to advanced. With the upcoming Olympics I think it’s a really good idea to study English as it will help people communicate with foreigners more effectively.
I hope to see you soon at AKA and teach you either English, Spanish or Catalan. Best regards, Kevin Keena
