  Joe Moran-Douglas
   
帰国子女アカデミー副校長
オックスフォード大学卒業(日本研究/東アジア古典文学研究)
 
Vice-principal at Kikokushijo Academy since 2011 and an examination instructor for almost a decade, Joe Moran-Douglas has a long history of helping students achieve their goals.
 
At school, Joe discovered a passion for languages (French, Spanish), grammar, and literature, and was awarded a place at the University of Oxford where he majored in Japanese Studies and Classical East Asian Literature. Having spent time during college studying at Kwansei Gakuin University and Sophia University, Joe moved to Tokyo in 2006 to join Kikokushijo Academy as an instructor. In 2010 he set up and became head-teacher of KA Nishifunabashi and was then appointed as vice-principal, overseeing curriculum and teacher development, as well as KA’s ‘College Bound’ and SAT programs.  Over the years, Joe’s passion for learning and his specific, individual, student-based testing advice has helped thousands succeed in tests such as junior-high and high school entrance exams, STEP (Eiken) 1st Grade, TOEFL iBT, UN Eiken (UNATE) A and Special A, and of course the SAT and ACT, with many of his students going on to top universities around the world.
 
In 2015, with the goal of providing more options to students and bringing the best English education to those who need it but have busy schedules, Joe set up “University Prep” in conjunction with Kikokushijo Academy.   With him, he brings all of the best elements of KA and its sister school, KAIS – innovative approaches to learning,  a commitment to teaching in English,  and a long term vision for our students: to guarantee their long-term success by helping them to develop into open-minded, flexible, critical thinkers who are able to see and approach challenges from a variety of perspectives.
 
In his free time, Joe enjoys learning languages, reading, and playing bass and guitar. When not in the classroom, he can also be found travelling, snorkeling, or watching and discussing baseball with friends and colleagues.

Yuki Furuya attended an international school from the age of four. Upon graduating from a preparatory school in the United States, she entered Cornell University where she earned two bachelor’s degrees in Classics and Archaeology, and continued onto her MA and PhD programs in Classical Studies at the University of Cincinnati. After several years of conducting archaeological research in Greece, she returned to Japan and decided to put her knowledge of ancient and modern languages to use to instruct students in advanced academic English skills. 
 
Her list of languages includes English, Japanese, Greek, French, Middle Egyptian, Latin, Ancient Greek, Linear B, and several other European languages.
 
Yuki has been a part of Kikokushijo Academy since 2012, and is currently a head teacher at the Jiyugaoka school, as well as the Curriculum and Materials Coordinator. 
 
In her free time, Yuki dances hula and plays the piano. She can often be spotted reading up on a new language at various cafes around Tokyo with her dog, which accompanied her back from Greece. She is currently working on acquiring Hawaiian.
