Eric Braun

Hello Everybody,
I'm Eric from California. I majored in international relations at the University of California at Davis, California. I graduated in the spring of 1994 and came straight to Japan to begin a new exciting life in Nagoya where I have a friend who helped me extensively. I studied Japanese at the YWCA everyday and Shotokan Karate but soon found it quite expensive to live here. Consequently I soon began working as an English teacher and soon after that I moved up to Tokyo which was my dream at the time. I've about 15 years of experience in teaching and several years of experience working for Japanese companies as well.   I've managed to become conversationally fluent in spoken Japanese but am still studying as my ability is yet insufficient. I'm a bit passionate about dance, specifically Argentine Tango. I'm also into the esoteric, metaphysical, spiritual. In short, life's more meaningful questions interest me.  I'm also a bit of a conspiracy theorist. I'm fascinated with concepts such as the flat-world theory, aliens and so on. Most importantly I love teaching English so I'm quite happy to be able to help people of all ages here at the school these days. I welcome you to Little California English, a sort of little California in Tachikawa.

Nobuaki Park

Hello everyone, I’m Nobu. 

Growing up, I lived in both Manila and Tokyo. 

In Manila with my mom, we experienced warm weather throughout the whole year . 

We also used to love eating tropical fruits and swimming at pristine beaches. 

When in Tokyo with my dad, we used to explore wonderful cityscapes, eat fresh sushi and enjoy the changing seasons. 

Having graduated from an international university I feel that I’m able to really appreciate different cultures. 

I am also an aerobics instructor. I trained in Singapore and Thailand. 

I have been teaching both English and Fitness to children and adults for more than 10 years. 


Steven Johnson

Hi everyone, 

My name is Steven Johnson. I'm from America, in the state of New Jersey. I am a licensed teacher in the state of New Jersey. I've lived in Japan for over 2 years now. I enjoy living here because I like teaching English and want to meet new people and experience a new culture. I've been teaching English for over 5 years now and have experience not only in Japan but also in South Korea and America. 

I like to have fun and engaging lessons, so my students enjoy coming to class and learning something new. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, photography, playing video games, watching movies, and exploring new places around beautiful Japan. :)"
