StephanieRiann Tutor Profile

Hello ! My name is StephanieRiann, I`m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada but now make my home in Kanagawa, Japan with my Japanese husband. 

   I have been teaching English lessons for 3 years (2017-2020) at a leading English school in Japan where I had recieved exstensive training in teaching English.  Currently, I am also teaching English at my local community centre.  In Canada I volunteered to help Japanese people in the city of Toronto learn English through daily conversation or help them study for TOEIC exam.

   I have  two undergraduate degrees from Acadia Univeristy in Nova Scotia and a Masters of Music degree from the Univeristy of Ottawa in Canada. I have multiple EP and LP albums avaliable on all digital music retailors sites worldwide (under my former performing name Stephanie Coldwell-Anderson, East n`West Canadian band as lead singer) and my final album Ultralife was released August 2019.  I`m currently taking a long term break from performing life, but I am continuing to to persue songwriting/ arrangment collaborations with musicians and bands in Canada as a sort of hobby when I have time. I have been the reciepient of a FACTOR/Government of Canada recording grant for my original childrens songs on my album entitled ADVENTURER.  I am also a member of SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers) of Canada.  

   I have been teaching music (voice, piano, theory and songwriting) for over 15 years (in Canada) were I had thriving in-home studios in the proviences of Nova Scotia and Ontario as well as at the private music school Merriam Music in Toronto, Ontario. In Canada, I was also a Registered Music Teacher with ORMTA (Ontario Registared Music Teachers Association). I had continued teaching music (English through singing) in Japan by volunteering at my local community centre until Feb 2020.

   Teaching is one of my passions and I wish to bring joy to people of all ages through learning music and/or English.  When I`m not teaching my hobbies are trying to improve and continue learning Japanese, doing Japanese culture/music experiences, cooking, hiking, traveling and camping with my husband. ( see more pictures below)

    I aim to make my lessons fun and energetic, with a relaxed atmosphere.   I also believe if your laughing you`re learning so let`s have a good time. Lessons are avaliable right away or by trail lesson this is the students choice.  Currently, my English and music lessons are geared towards teens, young adults and adults/elderly. English lessons are customized by level, Introductory, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced as well as free talk classes .

Let`s work together as a team and have fun learning!
I look forward to meeting you soon!
