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!

***_t今日は"picture descriptions exercise"をやりました。自分で文を作るのは難しいですが、何が分からないのかがはっきりして良かったです。 いつものように話しやすい雰囲気なので、間違えを気にすることもなく、質問もしやすくて、充実した時間を過ごせました。 いつも誠実に対応してくれて、私の状況も良く理解してくださってるので、とても信頼してます(^^)Random Questions Challenge! (30 min) 30 1,000Jun 21, 2018
***_tいつも楽しくあっという間に終わってしまいます。毎回テキストを用意して下さり、フィードバックで補填してもらえます。 回数を重ねる度に少しずつ点が線になる感覚があり、やりがいを感じます。 あと一回でパックが終わるので、他のレッスンにも挑戦してみたいです。 ありがとうございました(^^)American English Discount Pack! Free Talk! 30 4,000Jun 19, 2018

***Lady Ayame has given me homework every time because of my asking. I sent her back my homework as scanning it before her lesson. She pointed out my wrong spelling. We checked answers, correction of pronunciation and spell-checking. I like it so much what I never have waste of time, because she is a bilingual adult. I also love a part what I never have vague small talk with her. I had been lovesick until her lesson, but I could return my normal life thanks of her lesson. I can handle love, English and work, being well-balanced these days. I was bemused one period by love sickness, but she has always taught me English with her patient. I've appreciated you, Lady Ayame! あやめ先生から宿題を出してもらっています。今回は、やった宿題をスキャンしてあやめ先生に送り返しました。スペルミスを指摘してくださいました。30分で答え合わせ・発音の矯正・スペルミスのチェックが出来ました。日本語もわかるので無駄な時間が無いのが好きです。またぼんやりした雑談で終わってしまわないのもとても好きです。片想いをしていて、その人の事ばかり考えていたのですが、あやめ先生のおかげで、英語を通して自分の生活に戻れました。恋も英語も仕事もバランスよくできそうです。一時期、ボーッとしていた時もあったのですが、あやめ先生が辛抱強く英語を教えてくださりました。あやめ先生、いつもありがとうございます！American English Discount Pack!
