スタッフ紹介

Yoko & Jun Senesac

高校卒業後、英国に留学。人前で話をすることが苦手だったため、話を聞いてもらえず大変苦労しました。そんなころ、一人の先生の「あなたは日本語を完璧に話す上に、さらに英語まで話そうとしている。英語しか話せない我々よりよっぽど偉い!」の一言に感動。
それから相手に何度聞き返されても、自分の意思が伝わるまで言い直せるようになりました。そんな先生の講義は素晴らしく、自信を持つことの大切さを教わりました。
こういった実践的かつ心のこもった英語教育を、日本人向けに出来ないものかと思い、1985年にBYB English Centerを立ち上げました。
同センターの生徒達はサウスベイエリアの大手日系企業からの駐在員とその家族が殆どです。そんな生徒たちが少しでも横のつながりを持ち、他企業に勤める人々との交流を計れるようにとスポーツ・イベントなどを開催しています。
「朝から夜までほぼ毎日ここにおりますので、いつでも気軽に遊びに来てください。」

I have a Japanese mother and spent some years living in Japan. I enjoy going to the gym, hiking, and eating as much food as I can. I love yakiniku! If you want to see me smile, then talk about food. I will always be happy to listen about different food adventures.  I moved to Southern California in May 2017 and have been enjoying my time here!

My name is Yoshiki and I have been living in US since 1999. In my US life, I received Master degree and Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering focusing on life prediction of aircraft structures.  During my Ph.D. life, I had some teaching experiences on graduate courses and helped undergraduate students as a tutor.  Right before finishing my Ph.D., people from NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) in Cleveland OH invited me to join their group.  My responsibility in NASA GRC was to develop life prediction method for next generation jet engines.  During my NASA time, I published some technical journal publications and performed a peer-review on works of other international researchers.  Definitely I can help on professional technical reports including science reports for elementary school as well.  I moved to LA in 2014 for new position in a manufacturing industry as a R&D engineer.  In this position, I am constantly interacting with many Japanese suppliers and it made me realize that the quality of their products are overwhelmingly better than their English communication skill.  Such experience motivated me to join BYB English School to help Japanese people challenging English communication.

Hello! My name is Deanna, and I am a Chinese-American girl from Torrance! I absolutely love teaching English and learning about diverse cultures, as well as a strong passion for travel, learning languages, and discovering new foods! Apart from travel, I also love to do yoga, sing, play guitar, dance hula, and make YouTube videos! I graduated from University of CA, Riverside with a B.A. in Psychology, and completed my post-baccalaureate certification at CSULA in Communicative Disorders. In 2013, I created an organization known as Oceania Dance at UCR, where I led weekly hula, language, and lessons on Hawaiian culture. I have also worked at an elementary school in Mito, Japan, where I taught English to children ages 4-15. Having lived in Japan without any prior knowledge of Japanese was difficult at first, but I soon learned how rewarding and eye-opening it is to discover a new culture and language and fully immerse in it! I hope to bring that same joy and experience I felt while traveling abroad to those who wish to learn English. I always do my best to be patient with my students, efficient, make them feel comfortable, and help them have as much fun as possible!
