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。」
あなたも今すぐBYBのドアをノックしてみませんか?

自己紹介:

My name is Collette and I have been teaching ESL for 3 years; 2 years in the United States and 1 year in the People’s Republic of China where my students were children ages 5-13 and adults.  I enjoy teaching both children and adults.  I graduated from the University of San Francisco and have spent most of my life in California.  I enjoy movies, computer games and most of all people.  I have chosen ESL because I truly believe that if you find a job you love you will never work another day in your life.  So, if you see me at BYB I am there having a GREAT TIME because I am doing something I LOVE.

自己紹介:
My background is in User Experience Design and Development, a
field at the crossroads of rich media design and information science, where the goal is to facilitate seamless interaction between people and machines—like BYB but for computers. This field has instilled                                 in me the importance of thinking across cultural boundaries, while deepening my respect for the cultures that exist at this moment.

                             Teaching conversation with conversation, Iʼm here to help you discover the joy and excitement of fluid, spontaneous communication.                                 Letʼs live life unscripted!

自己紹介 : My name is Stephan and I’m a recent college graduate from Cal State Fullerton with a background in Linguistics and a strong passion for languages. I received my CELTA English teaching certificate when I was still studying in college, and taught my first classes to students from Japan, India, France, Ukraine, Russia, the Philippines, Mexico, and Taiwan. My passions in life are learning languages and practicing Muay Thai kickboxing. I have studied Japanese for many years and have practiced martial arts for longer than that, and have even lived in Japan before to study Japanese and practice Muay Thai. My current goal (other than to teach English) is to hopefully attend graduate school for my MA in Linguistics. I know learning a new language can be difficult sometimes, but I also believe that it can be a fun, rewarding, and highly beneficial experience for the learner as well. So always try your best and never give up!

自己紹介: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.

自己紹介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!
