Hi! My name is Monami, and I am in my final year of studying Biological Sciences at University in London. I've lived in Japan for about 5 years, and afterwards, spent most of my life in Singapore attending international schools. I love helping people learn English as I think its a great way to communicate with many people all over the world.
My advice to anyone who wants to improve English, especially speaking, is to 'act confident', and no one will question you! This is something I tell myself often too, as I'm currently learning to speak Spanish :)
Hi! My name is Goma and I am a 20-year-old student currently studying in Rhode Island, USA. I am excited to read and grade your summaries/essays!
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!
Hi! I am a graduate student at Yale University studying Russian history. My work has allowed me to study many languages, which has been a challenging yet very rewarding pursuit. I admire anyone who attempts to learn a foreign language so that they can better communicate with more people in this world we share.
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 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!

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!
