Hello everyone! My name is Briana
(ブリヤナ). I'm from America, but I currently live and teach English in Japan.
I'm a graduate of Princeton University, and have a bachelor's degree in East Asian Studies. I also studied abroad for one year at Doshisha University (同志社大学) in Kyoto. In total I've lived in Japan for four years, so I know the difficulties of communicating across cultures
! But, I love the challenge. :)
I also absolutely love learning languages! I've studied Japanese, Korean, French, and American Sign Language--so I understand well the struggles of learning a new language!
I've taught one-on-one conversational and business English at a major eikaiwa
company in Japan for three years
now. Before that, I tutored students in English and Japanese at my university. I know what areas of English are most difficult for Japanese speakers, so I can guide you through them.MY LESSONS:
In learning any language, the most important thing to remember is, it's okay to make mistakes--just continue communicating! ^^
So, I hope you will see our lessons as a place where it's safe to make many, many
mistakes. Honestly, making mistakes is the best way to learn! I can also offer Japanese support
In our lessons, I can help expand your vocabulary, improve your pronunciation, increase your speaking speed, prepare for specific situations (such as ordering food at a restaurant), and more. Whether you want to live abroad or simply understand an English news article, I want to help you
in your English abilities. Let's work hard together!
You can take any lesson I offer right away, but I recommend starting with an introductory lesson
or a trial lesson
. We can talk about your goals
and experience. This will help me get to know your English level and think about how best to teach you.
I hope to meet you soon! よろしくお願いします！
