Sixteen years ago, I moved to Japan from Vancouver Island, Canada. It would turn out to be the best decision I’ve ever made.
Over the years, I’ve developed a love of teaching English. The satisfaction of watching students improve their abilities is second to none.
At CLS, we believe that learning English should be a fun experience.We provide goal orientated lessons for students of all ages. Students are able to see the progress they are making while also having a clear vision of their goals.
Start communicating in English at CLS.

In 1987 a friend from Thailand asked me to help teach his friend math after school. His friend couldn’t speak English, so I taught him English and then math. I kept on teaching more and more students from many countries for over 20 years in America. A friend of mine from Tokyo suggested that I move to Japan and teach English full time, so I did. I have been teaching English in Japan since 2008. I love helping people achieve their goals. Come say hello, and let’s work together!

Hi, my name is Melissa and I’m from Wisconsin, USA. I’ve been living in Japan for 7 years and lived in Osaka before moving to Chiba. I have many interests from traveling to painting to reading, so let’s chat about many things!

It’s my experience that learning a foreign language opens up a person’s world, which can create various opportunities. The most rewarding experiences are being able to express yourself in another language and to see someone accomplish their goals. I look forward to enjoy studying English with you !
