[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!

***o_niko小学生の娘が受講しました。 状況により臨機応変に接してくださりとても優しい先生です。 娘は今日「あんなに本を読んでくれるなんてねー！」と喜んで布団にもぐりました。ありがとうございました！Children's English - 5 Lesson Value Pack 15 2,400Feb 22, 2019
***n0142こんにちは。日ごろからは楽しくレッスンを受けさせていただいております。いつもありがとうございます。皆様、こんにちは。 昨日は、基本に戻って英文法のレッスンを受けました。英検1級合格を目指している私が、Lady Ayame 先生にお願いしたい理由はいくつかあります。以前も口コミで書かせて頂いておりますが私はロサンゼルスに2年程住んだことがあり、ロサンゼルスの発音をマスターしたいことと英検1級に合格したいです。2次試験を視野に入れている場合、どうしても日本人を選びたいから、あるいは本番慣れするためにNative を選びたい方いろいろだとは思いますが、Lady Ayame 先生は、日本に住んだ年数も長い為そして日本の文化も熟知されているので英作文（essay)対策も対応可能です。 アメリカ英語を習いたいとお考えの場合はアメリカ人の講師の方はいらっしゃると思います。アメリカ英語を話しロサンゼルス在住の講師の方とは出会えませんでした。Lady Ayame 先生のお人柄は、とてもまじめで頭も切れる方です。更には日本の文化も熟知されています。1レッスンわずか30分ですがLady Ayame 先生をその時間内、独り占めして質問し放題とはとてもお得だと思います。 Lady Ayame 先生がハリウッドの俳優だからと言ってそのプロフィールから尻込みしてしまう方がいらしたら、それはとてももったいないことです。頭が良く性格もきちんとしている人は、人を見下すこともありません。Lady Ayame先生は、それぞれの生徒の実力に合った指導方法を短時間で把握出来る能力もお持ちです。 まだまだLady Ayame 先生の魅力はあります。この口コミを読んでLady Ayame 先生と会ってみたい、レッスンを受けてみたい方は是非、私がお勧めしている理由をご自身で確かめて下さい。続きは次のレッスン後に書かせて頂きます。♪お楽しみに。♪English Grammar Lesson!
