Mattison English was founded in 2000 by Chris and Mio Mattison in Nagoya, Japan, after they moved there from New York State with their two young sons. Chris taught at another language school in Nagoya while he developed his own new approach to effective and enjoyable lessons.
In 2013, the Mattison family moved back to New York State. While he re-established Mattison English, Chris taught students from all over the world at Kaplan International Colleges.
Mattison English is well known for its innovations in teaching — lessons always are far more than memorizing words.
