Elizabeth De Sa
Hi, my name is Elizabeth, エリザベス. I was born in London, but now I live in South Carolina in the United States.
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a Biology degree.
I have been an English, Math, and Science teacher in England, Japan, Australia, and California.
My hobbies are reading, training my German Shepherd dog, and raising ducks and geese.
I lived in Niigata for three years and I loved it.
I know how it feels to learn a new language.
My #1 tip is practice as much as you can. It's ok to make mistakes. Mistakes are opportunities to improve.
Don't worry if people laugh at you.
Celebrate your courage in trying something new and different.
I am looking forward to working with you!
Hello! My name is Jeffrey. I'm an English teacher, but I also edit High School English textbooks with Tokyo Shoseki and edit English-Japanese dictionaries with Taishukan. I just really enjoy helping students grow and getting to know people. Cheers!
My name is Damian and I love speaking with people from all over the world.
I use to live in Akita, Japan and I had a great time studying Japanese and exploring Akita's beautiful nature.
Now I am a graduate student at DePaul University and I am studying software engineering.
My first language was Polish, so like many of you, I also had to learn English.
My biggest advice to you is to just keep speaking and making mistakes.
Mistakes are important and help us improve.
Keep practicing, speaking, and don't give up!

Hey guys! My name is Emi Masui and I used to live in San Francisco, California for six years when I was younger. Just like you, English is my second language, so I know how hard and challenging it can be to learn English. That is why I am here to help you step up your English writing skills!
I am currently a pre-med student of Yale University, Class of 2021 and I will most likely major in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. For students learning English writing, the most important advice I can give is to read everything that you can--fiction, nonfiction, the news, magazines, etc. In addition to familiarizing yourself with grammar conventions, you will learn different writing styles and techniques.
Hello! My name is Jessika Barry. I live in California, United States. I received my Bachelor's in Anthropology with Community Development from Montclair State University. My specialties include research in sustainability and permaculture, herbalism and cultural studies. This has led me to travel around Europe, Asia, and the Middle East to understand different ways of life.
After moving to Indonesia and learning Bahasa, I understand how difficult learning a new language may seem. I am here to help you as best I can! I wish luck to everyone working towards improving their English! I am proud of you and hope you succeed in all your endeavors. :D
Hello everyone! My name is Vincent and I'm currently a sophomore at Yale University majoring in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. I am especially interested in bugs and hope to work at a museum one day! I also enjoying hiking, traveling, and promoting social justice. In high school I studied for a year in Kochi, so I speak Japanese and understand the difficulty of learning a new language. I encourage everyone to push themselves and use the things they learn in conversation and writing until they become natural. Learning another language opens many doors in the world, and you shouldn't forget to be proud of yourself for studying so hard!
