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!

As you kindly asked some meaningful questions about my recent working situation, it was great practice for me to summarize focused upon in the past months. I would like to know about your daily life and working situation. See you soon ! Yuki.

***ami1964難しいことは抜きに楽しんで英会話をしました。 時々単語を知らないときには日本語にしてしまいますが、気負わずとにかく英語を使って喋るのが目的なのでそれでいいかと思っていつもこのレッスンを受けています。途中で先生の猫ちゃんが登場してくれて猫好きな私にとってはうれしいハプニングでした。とにかく何事も楽しくという方のようなのでお会いするといつも気持ちが晴れてすっきりします。またこのレッスンを取りたいと思います。Random Question Challenge (30 min) 30 1,000Jul 19, 2018
***beerkuchenmitsahneAyame先生はきめ細かく受講生の要望を拾い上げてくださると思います。しかも受講生自身では気づいていない部分まで察して、レッスンを提供してくださっています。うまく言えないですが、毎回、つくづく先生の配慮を感じます。今回も、少し短めの記事を２つ事前に用意してくださり、それが私のレベルにピッタリ合ったものだったように感じました。レッスン中も、なかなか言葉が出てこない私の考えていることを察知してくださり、すごいと思いました！Quick Fun American English! (30 min) 30 1,000Jul 18, 2018
