Hello, nice to meet you! My name is Rachel Wu. I was born and raised in Utah, and later moved with my family to San Jose, California. I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration.
I have lived in several countries including South Korea and Japan, with the goal of experiencing as many places as I can through living there. Now, I am an English teacher based in Taipei, Taiwan.
I have always enjoyed helping others with using natural English, and have tutored from basic to business level English. I can speak conversational Mandarin Chinese and Japanese plus a little Korean, too. I understand how hard yet rewarding learning a language can be, and I hope I can help you to reach your English language goals.

I can speak Japanese fluently and have 3 daughters who are bilingual and bi-cultural.

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 Joshua Meyer.

Hello, everyone! I think I know most of you, but there may be some new students who have joined Mike's English School since I was last there. I taught at the school from 2010-2011 and 2013-2021. It's been a long time since I saw any of you face to face. It's been an even longer time since we met offline and in person. These days, it feels like being in the same room is more of a special event. I live in Chofu now, but I'm going to be coming to Seiseki-Sakuragaoka to do a few weekly lessons again in person. If you'd like to get out of the house and join me for some conversation, please do! I hope to see some of you, even if you've been away from Mike's for a while (as I have).

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, 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!).
