Mike's 課外.jpg_2.jpg

Hi everyone, I'm Kairyn Kreller. I was born in Fresno California and I am half Japanese and half American. I can speak both Japanese and English fluently so I'm excited to be able to have nice conversation with you all. I have a twin sister who is nine minutes older than me and a younger sister who is four years younger than me. I am going to Chuo University to study global business and one day build my own company.
I have done 13 years of ballet and dancing is my passion. I have also done modeling for fun, too.
This is a new experience for me and I can't wait to get to know you all.

Hello everyone!
My name is Kiara and I am so excited to grow your English abilities through online and in person. I am bilingual in Japanese and English as I grew up in both Japan and America. I love to dance, sing and play the ukulele! I also enjoy indoor and outdoor activities.
I cannot wait to meet you all and start expanding your English!!

I was born in Fresno California where I currently work remotely and did my study at San Diego State University. I majored in Asian Diplomacy with a minor in Japanese. I can speak Japanese fluently and have 3 daughters who are bilingual and bi-cultural. I do a lot of volunteer work with several nonprofit groups and want to make a positive impact on underprivileged members of this world we all live in.
In my spare time I enjoy fishing the Kings River, hiking on Lewis Trail near Oakhurst, working in my garden, and playing golf.
I worked as an English teacher from Jan 4th 1999 to May 2002 at Mikes English School and am so exited to be able to work again to teach English so we all can communicate better.

Cynthia Olkie先生のプロフィール
My name is Cynthia Olkie. I was born and raised in New York. After graduating Syracuse
University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, I moved to Los Angeles, California to work in film in
television. Fifteen years later I started my own photography company and love capturing life's
most precious moments. No matter which career path I was on, I always found ways to teach
others. I taught photography classes to children and adults, ran the art program at a private
school for 6 years and substituted in schools for kindergarten classes through 8 th grade classes.
I have always enjoyed teaching and sharing my skills but also love what I have and can gain
from all my students. I always loved to travel but after I studied and live in Florence, Italy for a
semester in college, the urge to experience new cultures and how they live grew bigger. I am
so excited to meet you and help you learn English so that you too can experience many more

Hello, everyone! My name is Jordan Elias and I'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Ever since I was young there have been things from Japan that I've found interesting. One of my earliest memories is playing Super Mario Bros. on the Super Nintendo (or Super Famicom as you call it in Japan). From video games and manga, to Judo and photography, there are many things that have drawn me to Japan. Even though I've traveled around Japan a bit, I'm still looking to explore more of the country to get to know it better. I have received a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)certification alongside my Bachelor of Business Administration degree. I've already learned much from my students, but I've also learned much from our online classroom environment and how it can also open the world much like another language like English can. I'm really looking forward to seeing you online in my class or at one of our face to face events!

See you soon,

Hello, everyone! My name is Kree McMonigle.

I was born in the countryside of Brunswick, Ohio, America. While I was growing up my family hosted people from many countries including Japan and because of that I have always been interested in the country. While I am here I want to see the cherry blossoms, hike Mt. Fuji and visit many temples and shrines. Originally I went to college for engineering but ESL teaching in the USA made me realize that teaching is my true passion. During my time in Japan I have completed my TESOL and TEFL certifications. My goal is to constantly improve and become a better teacher alongside my students. I really look forward to helping you connect to the world through our virtual classrooms and English.

Give my class a try, I look forward to seeing you online

Hello, students of Mike's English School!

Long time no see! You may remember me, but for those of you who don't, or those of you I am yet to meet, my name is Brendan! I grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in English Literature. I love good stories. "Musashi" by Eiji Yoshikawa is one of my favorite books and I recommend it to everyone.
After I finished university, I moved to Japan and taught English here at Mike's English School from 2016 - 2019. Those three years were incredible! I enjoyed getting to learn about each of you and I am excited to meet new faces. I was also very happy to experience Japanese culture: The language, history, customs, and of course... The food! Takoyaki, sukiyaki, sushi, all of it is delicious. Even natto is great! But my favorite food is shabu-shabu. Nothing beats that.
I am now living in Denver. Did you know Denver and Takayama in Gifu Prefecture are sister cities? When I returned to the United States, I enrolled at Colorado State University Global Campus as a part-time student to study Computer Science. I am expecting to finish Spring 2023. I am also working full-time at Amazon. I am looking forward to teaching again and catching up with all of you!

See you soon,

Hello, everyone! My name is Mike Thompson.

In 1963, I lived in Libya in North Africa. In my elementary school, we had lessons in the Arabic language.

In 1973, I lived in Wakayama in Japan. I was a high school exchange student, trying the Japanese language.

In 1983, I was teaching the English language to you, my Japanese students, at Mike's English School in Tama City, Tokyo.

In 2023, we will be celebrating the beginning of our NEXT 50 years at the school. It has been a long and very interesting time that I have enjoyed learning and teaching foreign languages. Now, we are teaching you online, but I still like to use my guitar and sing in my lessons. Do you have a request?

I'm looking forward to meeting you by our Internet lessons, and also in person, in the future, when we venture into the second half of the Mike's English School Century, started in 1972! (How old do you think I am? You can ask me!).
