Arian Eshtehardian 挨拶文


Hello! My name is Arian Eshtehardian and I am from London. While I grew up in England, I am of Iranian-Lithuanian heritage and have also lived in Sweden, France, Norway, and Scotland. I have never been to Japan before, and I am very excited to discover all I can about its people, history, and culture. I feel extremely lucky for the opportunity to teach here at Higashi-Uji Senior High School, and cannot wait to discover the numerous opportunities that Uji, Kyoto, and the Kansai region has to offer. I eagerly look forward to sharing my passion for multicultural exchange with students and staff alike throughout my time here at Higashi-Uji.

Hello, everyone! My name is Clarisa Legaspi and I'm a Filipino-American AET from San Diego, California. San Diego, widely known as "America's Finest City," is famous for its white-sand beaches and amazing weather all throughout the year. Before moving to Japan, I taught beginner to advanced English at an international language school in San Diego, including a Business English class and a Marketing Advertising English class. My favorite part of my job was learning about the different cultures of my students because they came from all over the world (France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, South Korea and Japan to name a few).

Now more than ever in a globalized world, being able to communicate in English is extremely important and advantageous from an academic, professional and personal standpoint. English helps better connect us with one another and provides more opportunities in life. I'm here to show you that learning English is not only useful for your future but is also a lot of fun! I look forward to bringing my teaching experience and positive energy to Higashiuji Senior High School. Let's have a great time together!

Hello everyone! My name is Marvin Dimatulac and I am from the Philippines. I have been living in Japan for about 5 years now and I used to live and work in Ibaraki Prefecture as an English conversation teacher. I really love to travel and experience local Japanese culture and so far, I have already traveled in 28 prefectures including Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima, and Yamagata. Moving to Kyoto and working for Higashi Uji High school has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.
