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:

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。途中でトラブルがありSkypeが出来なくなってしまったのですが、何度もかけ直してくださりレッスンをして下さいました。本当にありがとうございます。Children's English - 5 Lesson Value Pack 15 3,000May 21, 2019
***oThis is the first time that I spoke to her in the class and I was very impressed by her passionate attitude as an English teacher. I took the movie class today and we proceeded the lesson based on a set of thoroughly prepared documents which she kindly sent me before the lesson. I think this approach to the class really shows her passion as a teacher and consideration for students. No wonder that she recorded more than 3000 lessons in such a short time. Also, as I am a passionate movie lover myself, this class turned out to be great fun talking with her about the famous lines used in many excellent Hollywood movies I want to continue this class with her help and enjoy the conversation together! Thank you very much, teacher! このクラスが、あやめ先生との最初のクラスでしたが、大変話しやすく、情熱のある先生で驚きました。私はこのCafeTalkにも長くこれまで20人以上の先生と話しましたが、その中でもあやめ先生の熱意は大変印象的でした。自身の女優のキャリアからも映画業界をよくご存じの方ですから、このクラスをするにはぴったりの先生だと思います。本当にフレンドリーで飾らない性格の方ですから、あらゆるレベルの生徒さんを教えれるのではないでしょうか？Movie Mania!...Who Said It? 50 1,600May 19, 2019
