I talked to Rhys for the first time in a month. I often request a few things to do for one lesson.
Today’s lesson was just like a gift box with assorted cookies. After we caught up on each other’s lives&news, I asked him a few questions from the movie I watched and the book I’ve been reading. Then we played a word game. After that, we ran through a picture description quickly.Rhys is always generous to accept my random requests but I was afraid of my being acquisitive and I asked him too much for one lesson.However, Rhys kindly sent me a message which said he would be ready for all of them, so I felt reassured and looked forward to our lesson so much. It’s always pleasant to chat with Rhys, who is compassionate, reasonable and committed to his work. 久しぶりにリース先生とお話できて本当に楽しかったです。時間の流れと自粛生活の成果が見られ同時にお元気そうで何よりでした。いつも以上にあれこれ違ったことをお願いしてしまいましたが、快くリクエストに応じて下さいました。こういうご時世でも長年お世話になっている先生が変わらずいて下さるという安心感を噛み締めました。

Thank you for the today’s lesson! Just before this lesson started, I sent a flowers photo to Rhys and we started today’s lesson by talking about that flower. Its petals were really characteristics. It is hard to explain even in Japanese. So I thought it was good material for practicing speaking English. But in the end, I couldn’t find good way to explain what shape of the flower’s petals. These days, I have hard time to find new topics because I can’t go out and experience new things due to the coronavirus. Using picture might be good way to bring new topics.

Thank you for the today’s lesson! Is was fun as usual. Today’s topics were about my stomachache, chess and effects of covid-19. I’m not familiar with chess but it was fun to know about new thing. I didn’t know there was a score system among chess players.

Thank you for the enjoyable lesson! Today’s topics were a bit tough. It started about NHK podcast, we talked about how public broadcasting programs were seen by people, and about history revision, then about a false science. Although topics were difficult, I think I could speak better than my expectation thanks to Rhys.

Thank you for the enjoyable lesson! To express my feeling I used the term shallow. But Rhys said it sounded too negative for our topic. It was one of things I can’t learn from just dictionaries. I’m glad that I can learn nuances of words and expression on this lesson.

Thank you for the feedback! It is very useful.
Thank you for the enjoyable lesson! In this lesson, we tried to avoid coronavirus topics. It was hard these days, but we succeeded. From language setting of iPad to stigma of hobby, we talked about many theme in 25 minutes as usual.

使用しているテキストでは４ユニットにわたって冠詞と取り上げていますが今日が最後のユニットでした。リース先生は毎回私の質問や思わず口から出た本音の言葉１つ１つに嫌がらず答え、反応し、励まして下さいました。テストで点数を取ることが大事だった学生時代だったら避けたかもしれませんが、いい大人になってから取り組むと確かに混乱はしますが当時に面白さも感じます。これからも冠詞は特に相変わらず間違うと思いますが、またこのテキストに戻って復習したいと思います。私の学生時代には習わなかったことや大人になってから独学で学んで忘れていたことをこのテキストを通して学んだり復習したりできて本当にうれしく思います。Rhys always takes my quesitons that might sometimes sound geeky without frowning. As I've told him several times, I'm weak in articles. It must be one of the unsurpassable obstacles for me, but thanks to Rhys, now I think far more positively about it.

My son has tried some other teachers, but he like teacher Rhys.
He is soft, kind and never irritated. He is always calm.
We are very satisfied his lesson.

Thank you for the today’s lesson! It’s enjoyable as usual. These days it is hard to find topics other than coronavirus pandemic. But we managed to avoid sticking that topic thanks to Rhys. I explained what it is like my English school lesson and compared between online lessons and offline lessons.

We continuously worked on articles(a,an,the) and zero articles. The contents I learned today are all what I didn't learn in my school days, but as an adult, I find them here and there and they are all useful. In spite of the bad connection, Rhys provided me an informative lesson.

Rhys is a very good listener which is the best quality of a tutor. And he also asks good questions to make lesson go smoothly.

Thank you for the lesson. It's been two month since she has taken the last lesson.
So she looks a little nervous and was in a bad mood at first.
But thanks to him, she enjoyed your lesson.
She was interseted in many jobs, and she watched Youtube video about jobs.
