WELCOME TO MATTISON ENGLISH!

We love helping people have an experience of a lifetime!

We know from experience the challenges you and all of your family members face moving to and from Japan. We’re here to help you overcome them by improving your English language skills and your understanding of the new culture you’re suddenly surrounded by.

Students, parents and business people all come to work on communicating more clearly in English. Because most lessons are one-to-one, everyone gets personalized lessons. We teach both in person at our office in Harrison, NY and all over the world on the internet.

<<During COVID-19>>

We hope everyone is well and staying safe during these hard times.
Mattison English has been conducting our lessons online and in-person.
マティソンのレッスンは只今オンラインと通学のハイブリット形式で運営しています。

At this time, our students have fewer chances to be exposed to live English since everything is shut down. We are glad to offer the opportunity for them all to have the chance to speak to a live person albeit online. It is important for them to keep their conversation skills oiled and ready for action so when they do go back to school or back into public, they won’t be so rusty.
毎日家の中で過ごす事が長期化する中、家庭内で英語を使う機会が少なくなり不安に思い始めている方が多い中、オンラインでのレッスンをご提供できることを嬉しくまた光栄に思っています。今まで打ち込んでいた目標を維持し、学校、その他の機関が再開した時の準備を整えておくことは大切な事の1つであり、こんな時だからこそ目標を定めコツコツと努力したい、英語力を維持したいという方々を広くサポートしていきたいと思っています。

<Successful Online Lesson>
Students that are used to coming to our lessons feel safe and confident being with us. They are more themselves when they can have privacy when they talk to us online. They can completely focus and be more involved in the lesson if they are not distracted by other people in the room. They need to take chances when they speak English and can depend on us to correct them when it is important or ask us questions.
通学レッスンで講師と快適な信頼関係で結ばれていた受講生がオンラインに切り替わり、レッスン環境の変化に動揺してしまう傾向がみられる場合があります。それは受講生は、講師とプラベートな空間を確保できる事でより自分らしさを発揮でき、失敗を恐れず発言し、レッスンに集中できるからです。受講生がお子さんの場合は出来るだけ受講生と講師のプライベートな空間を確保してあげてください。

<What can you do?>
As well as talking with us, students and their families could make times when they speak English to each other by playing games, cooking together, looking at art online, or just chatting.
おうちでできる事
これは通学・オンラインに関わらずいえる事ですが、ご家庭内で「English time」と家族みんなが英語を話す時間を短時間作ってみたりするもの変化があってお勧めです。英会話をしながらボードゲームや料理をしたりするのはいかがでしょう。また英語のオンラインゲームや洋画、洋楽、youtubeなども効率的に用いるのも良いでしょう。

We are all in this together and get through this together!
