I'm Emma, originally from London, England, and I moved to Japan in December 2016 to endeavor on a wintery adventure on the Japanese Alps. My season in Hakuba, Nagano was as expected, full of the famous Japanese powder, many a minor injury and an exciting exploration of Japanese cuisine. Once the snowy mountains began to clear, I moved to Kyoto to embark on a new career as a teacher.


Although I'm relatively new to Japan, I have adapted to Japanese culture and fallen in love with it. As I understand, Kyoto is one of the best places to fully immerse oneself in traditional Japanese everyday life. In order to complete the transition, I have started language lessons to learn Japanese.


As well as a TEFL, I also have a degree titled BA Media, Culture and Practice. With these qualifications and my creative flare, I can demonstrate fun and inventive lessons for all to enjoy! 











Hi Everyone!


 I'm Travis and I come from Perth, Western Australia where I worked as an engineer on a gold mine in the middle of the Australian desert.  In 2005, I earned my certificate in teaching English as a second language (CELTA) and came to Japan. After backpacking around the country, I taught English with Nova in Tokyo. Since then, I've been working as  a mechatronics engineer for an Australia company from my home in Japan. I lived in Tokyo for around 5 years and then lived in Kobe for another 5 years. Now, I've moved to Kyoto where I plan to live permanently.


I'm interested in philosophy, history and politics, and I'd love to learn more about these things in Japan. I also like to do weight lifting, swimming, scuba diving and skiing (I'm still learning as we don't have any snow in Western Australia). And of course, I'm learning Japanese!


I've travelled to many different countries and Japan is my favorite by far. I love Japan for its food, culture and architecture, and I especially love Japanese peaple. I want to meet a lot of English students and help you reach your goals so you can travel the world, communicate effectively in business or chat with your foreign friends. I want to make a positive difference in your life and I hope you enjoy your English classes with me!


みなさん こんにちは!



私は哲学や歴史や政治について興味があり、日本のそれらについてももっと学びたいと考えています。そして、物理学、化学、心理学などありとあらゆるもの何でも、化学全般について皆さんと話をしてみたいです! 休みの日には、重量上げ、水泳、スキューバーダイビングやスキーをするのが好きです。(オーストラリア西部では雪は降らないので、スキーはまだ初心者です。)そしてもちろん日本語も勉強中です!





Hello Everybody!


I'm David,and I am originally from The San Francisco Bay Area, California! I recently moved to Kyoto with my wife after living in New York City for 13 years. I am a native English speaker, but also speak Spanish. I taught English, Spanish and  Music all throughout New York City, to all ages and leaning levels for nealy 10 years. Around the time I met my wife up until now, I have been very interested in Zen Buddhism/Meditation, as well as Shinto. I love to learn how these two traditions have affected and influenced Japanese culture, and I would love to keep learning about many elements in general, ancient and modern alike, that help make Japan culturally rich, beautiful and interesting. Additionally, language is such a crucial part of culture, so I aim to be able to speak conversational Japanese within a year or so.


Ever since I've been teaching, I've learned some very valuable lessens: one of the best ways to learn is to teach; the teacher and students are both involved in the learning process and are constantly discovering new ideas together; many students have many learning styles , so the teacher needs to be sensitive as a result, and design lessons accordingly, whether it be visual lessens, storytelling, songs, games, kinetic learning through movement around the class, or repetition, to name a few examples.


I look forward to meeting, teaching, learning and enjoying English classes with each and every student. English doesn't have to be difficult and boring. It can be very inspiring, exciting and fun. I love when students are surprised at how quickly they were busy and exciting process, and so I aim to provide fun and interesting classes to each of my students. Alright! Let's go!!


みなさん こんにちは!








Hi there!

I'm Mark, I come from a small town called Waiuku which is located near the city of Auckland in New Zealand. My family is Dutch, this means my family were originally from The Netherlands. My family name is of Dutch origin    "Kleinstra" and it means "small street" if you translate it to English.

Because my family is spread across the world, I have learned multiple languages and can speak English and Dutch fluently, I can also speak a little German. I have completed a one year course studying the Japanese language here in Kyoto (but I'm still not perfect!), and I hope to become a full-time English Teacher in Japan soon!

I am passionate about learning and teaching languages, and my hobbies include studying, gaming, playing with dogs, relaxing under my kotatsu and going crazy.

I am looking forward to learning from you, teaching you, and speaking with you all in class!

みなさん こんにちは!私はマークです。ニュージーランドの首都オークランドから近いワイウクという小さな町から来ました。私の家族はオランダ出身です。

Hi, I’m Atsumi. I’m very happy to be at Ei! Ei! Go!! and very excited at the fact that I can keep pursuing my career as an English teacher! I want you to know that setting a goal is very important when you learn something and learning how to speak English is not an exception. If you don’t have a clear goal, please set your goal to finish elementary (shokyu) level. When you finish elementary level, that means, you are able to communicate in English! Maybe not as fluent as native English speakers, but you can get general ideas of what they are saying and respond properly. That is what communication is all about. You don’t have to be super fluent or perfect in grammar. I want you to experience the fun part of English communication by understanding each other with people from all over the world. That is going to enrich your life. I would be very very happy if I could help you with that. That’s my goal.


Mr. B


Hi everyone!  I'm Anthony Blackman.  Everyone calls me "Mr. B".  I'm from Hobbs, New Mexico.  Everyone thinks I'm from Mexico, but New Mexico is an American state.  I highly recommend everyone visit once.  It is a truly enchanting state.

I first came to Kyoto way back in 1994.  I have lived in Japan so long that I sometimes forget English.  Over the last 16+ years, I have had the pleasure of teaching thousands of students of all ages from babies to people in their 90s.  It's been a real joy to learn about Japan from all the students and I always enjoy learning new things about the culture.  


Even though I love telling jokes and I have a strange sense of humour, deep inside of me is a burning desire to make sure that all of my students learn English.  I firmly believe that it is every teacher's responsibility to make sure their students are improving.  This is why I never stop trying to make the classes better and more interesting for the students.  I understand Japanese very well, so if you ever have a question that you need answered, don't hesitate to ask in either language.  


In my free time, I like to go to Starbucks and drink my favorite beverage, ice chai tea latte.  I also enjoy riding motorcycles very much.  I love to ride my bike to Lake Biwa and the Japan Sea and sleep on the beach all night.  It's such a great feeling to see the sunrise from the beach.   I also have one more very strange hobby.......I love going deep into the mountains after midnight and looking for wild animals.  Being chased by a giant boar at 2am is far more exciting than a night of karaoke.  

I am excited to be working at Ei! Ei! Go!! and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you one by one.  

Thank you.


みなさん こんにちは!



私は時間がある時、Starbucksに行って、私のお気に入り、Ice Chai Tea Latteを飲んで過ごします。それにバイクに乗るのも大好き。琵琶湖や日本海にバイクで行って、一晩中ビーチで眠るのは最高です!ビーチから眺める朝焼けは本当に美しい....。
