We want you to feel like you are overseas every time you come to Speak Up. Even if you are a beginner, the best way to improve your English is by trying to talk and by listening to others too. Come along, relax and have a chat, or take a lesson with us... fun and friendly English!

Learning a new language can be very challenging, but when you pair it with fun activities it can be very enjoyable. I want to help students learn English while having fun. Especailly when it comes to singing and dancing. My goal is that students will one day be able to communicate with many people and visit many places around the world.

日本大好きな Katherine。 日本のことをよく知っています。

I first came to Japan when I was a high school student. Since then, Japan has become a big part of my life! I believe that learning a new language creates many new opportunities and changes our way of thinking. Everyday at Speak Up I can meet and talk with many students.
I am always escited about listening to students' stories and laughing together. Let's enjoy learning together!

I was born in San Antonio, Texas. I first found my passion for teaching when I went to Korea and taught English there. As my students grew, so did my pride in them and in myself. Japan had always been a fascinating country that I wanted to explore for myself. If you want to show me the sights, or even grab a bite to eat, don't hesitate to invite me!

I'm half-Japanese and grew up learning Japanese. I have also lived in California and Japan. I love getting to know people and helping students to face challenges, even when it's difficult. I look forward to growing together. よろしくおねがいします!
