Hello! My name is Patricia Ayame Thomson but you can call me Lady Ayame.
[Introduction:] ~ I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan until I was 18 yrs old. While in Japan, I was a campaign model for Shiseido Cosmetics, Soen Magazine, Washington Shoes, and many others for five years as a teenager.
I attended an American School on Yokota US Air Force base and received my education in English. At the same time, I lived in the Japanese community, so I am fluent in both English and Japanese. If you feel more comfortable with a tutor who can speak both English and Japanese, please take a look at my lessons! Due to the fact that I am bilingual, I can immediately answer any question in either language.
(FYI: I am playing the role of "Sachiko" in the Introduction Video above. It's from an American TV show called "Dear John" starring Judd Hirsch.)
I moved to the United States after I graduated from high school to attend college. I went the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Theatre Arts. Since graduating, I have been an actress in Hollywood for a long time. Some of my well-known credits are appearances on "Seinfeld," "Designing Women," "Wings," "Friends," etc. Faced with competition from around the world, I worked hard and established over 50 TV credits.
*If you're so inclined, you can see my work on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeH_TGRD_byfUbSn8Qt9fsQ?view_as=subscriber and my list of credits on IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0861069/
More recently, I experienced a career change. I went through the online program and received a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from the San Jose State University (SJSU). For the past eight years, I've worked at the Santa Monica Main Public Library helping adults and children further their knowledge and encourage lifelong learning. I formed a close bond with both the patrons and fellow employees, and I enjoyed teaching them to access information in many electronic and print formats. I believe I can make learning fun and I will be happy to converse with you about any topic of your interest.My lesson plans are casual, easy-to-do, and requires reasoning skills. I am a very easy-going and patient, although I take my work seriously.
I am flexible and will accommodate the type of structured instruction you prefer or just converse freely if you like.
- Learn American Film Quotes
- Learn American Sayings and Quotes
- Read Scholarly Writing
- Learn American Idioms
- Pronunciation Exercises
- Due to the fact that each student has a different goal in mind, I can gear the lesson to further your goal! Perhaps you want to become more proficient with your English for reasons such as travel, work, personal improvement, or help your children with their English homework. I am able to customize your lesson to provide the skills necessary to reach your goal!
Personally, I like to make my own jewelry and knit. I work out regularly at the gym, I like to watch movies, and go out to explore restaurants. I have two precious cats named Coco and Chanel. Although I recently moved from Santa Monica, California to Canada I like the change of scenery very much!
I look forward to meeting you! Thank you for your interest!

***cha_Takekawa今日で4回のレッスンパックが終了しました。毎回テキストを使って質問に答えていく充実のレッスンでした。 国際的にお仕事される方、これからそういうことをされていく方にオススメのレッスンです。 フォーマルな場で人と会う時はもちろん、電話やオンラインミーティング、メールなどシチュエーションごとに交わされる言葉の違いを知ることができました。相手の気分を害さずに断る、とか、文化の違いからおきたちょっとした会話でのハプニングでどういう言葉で対応するか、とか、タイミング悪い時に電話がかかってきた時に失礼のないように断るには、とかもありました。 会議などで本題に入る前のちょっとした会話も、 挨拶で終わらずにそこから少し場を作っていくためのウォーミングアップ的会話って、日本語ではできても、英語でそれをよく話す現場にいないとすぐには使えないかなと思いますが、逆にそういうシチュエーションになり得る人にはとても便利だなと思います。 状況ごとでのおきまりのフレーズも日本語と違って英語ではこういう言い回しになるのかと新鮮な驚きもありました。"Business English" (Small Talk) 50 4,800Dec 10, 2018
***ebell今日初めて先生にお目にかかりました。とってもチャーミングで優しい方でしたので緊張もなく楽しい時間を過ごせて幸せでした。 続けて2レッスンを受けました。 「ニュース」は音読をして分からない語彙や内容もとても分かりやすく教えて頂きました。 「ピクトチャット」も楽しかったです。すぐにフィードバックも頂けるので有益です。 また他のレッスンも受けて見ようかと思います。Picto Chat 30 1,000Dec 9, 2018
