​英会話ステージ -  HEAD TEACHER


Nice to meet you everyone!  I am from England, land of Roast Beef and Queen Elizabeth.  I have three beautiful children.  I have an extensive background in music and teaching.  I am a graduate of Lichfield Cathedral School and Marlborough College.  My passion is in using music and drama in the classroom in a way that inspires and provokes language acquisition.   In my free time I take part in a theatre company and I love playing and writing music.  During my time in Japan I have enjoyed teaching in a variety of schools most notably Nanzan Girls Junior & Senior Highschool, NUFS, NUAS, Sugiyama Jogakuin, and Chubu University.

I am very keen to meet you and show you how English can be taught in a fun but extremely productive way through the use of drama and music.

At STAGE we teach English.  

What use is all that English if you don’t have the confidence to use it.  At STAGE we use drama, role play and presentation to get the students used to speaking English in a spontaneous and confident manner.

ACTIVE English speakers, not textbook whisperers.

At Eikaiwa STAGE we practice “free” conversation where students try to talk about what they want to say, not what we tell them to say.  This allows students to say what is on their mind, which in-turn exercises the ability to be a spontaneous and a quick thinking English speaker.  It is also a fantastic way to bring the class together and practice team building, trust and respect between the students.

Speak English with confidence and a develop a GOOD VOICE palette. 

At STAGE we use drama and singing as tools to help students develop a wide range of voice palette.  Being able to speak and present with different annunciation, volume, strength and articulation results in a strong and compelling speaker.

STAGE Library

We carry a library of books at different levels.  

We encourage the students to choose their own book and rent it for a week (free of charge).  The focus is not on understanding the vocabulary but rather on nurturing a love for the English Language and the joy of reading.

Performance in EDUCATION (PIE) At STAGE

We use performance to get the students actively moving and practicing English.  

The emphasis is on using vocabulary and conversation techniques that are required and used in real world situations.  Students become able to communicate using frequent words and gain confidence and pride in their own communication abilities.  Performance also allows for monologue/ public speaking training and teamwork based English dramatics where students build characters and interact in English with each other.
