About Lise

Konnichiwa! Watashi no nama e wa Lise desu. Hello! My name is Lise. I grew up in Tokyo and resided there for 40+ years. My mother is from Tokyo, and my father from NYC. I was very fortunate to have grown up in Japan embracing both cultures and languages. They may seem like polar opposites, but they actually complement each other quite well when it comes to critical thinking. I've raised two children (trilingual/bilingual) through an international school based on the International Baccalaureate curriculum, and have sat on the board of the PTA for many years as a liason for the administration/foreign expat/Japanese parents.

I've had extensive experience helping Japanese children and their parents to become comfortable communicating in English. Now, I'd like to do the reverse by sharing my love of the Japanese language and culture with you. I can also coach on Japanese business practices and Keigo (Honorific Japanese).
