Teaching approach:

Let's practice English together! I want you to have fun and enjoy your experience of learning. Learning another language can enhance many aspects of your life. It's a really admirable goal! Since I'm learning a second language too, I understand the difficulties. I also understand what makes learning engaging and fun. I can relate to students' experiences so I can be a more efficient teacher!

Sydney Stephens

City / Country of origin: Columbia, US

Mother language: English

Spoken languages: English, Japanese


Hello! My name is Sydney, I'm an exchange student from America currently living in Japan. I've been studying Japanese for a year and a half now, and I have had a passion for languages all my life. I enjoy helping people improve their language skills because I firmly believe that language enhances our life in so many different ways. Learning a foreign language or even improving your skill in your native language can open a lot of doors for you and enrich your understanding of the world. In my spare time, I enjoy music, cooking, and hiking with my husband.
