PAP恵比寿校 Head Teacher
My name is Stephen, but it’s pronounced with a “v” so please call me Steven. I’m from Australia , and I’m the K2 homeroom teacher and the head teacher at Prime Academic Preschool.
I was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia. I enjoyed lots of outdoor activities and sports while growing up. I studied Hospitality and Trade Cookery in Australia after completing high school, and more recently in Japan, I earned my masters in TEFL.
I moved to Japan in 2006 and have vast experiences teaching English at both public and private schools. I have taught a broad range of students with varying learning needs. For the past 5 years I have focused my energies on teaching kindergarten grades 1 to 3.
In my roles as homeroom and head teacher, I strive to create a challenging, yet fun learning environment for all my students. I work closely with my students and help them all aspects of their personal and academic development. I really love working with children and find it very satisfying helping them achieve their goals
Let’s learn together! I look forward to seeing you at PAP!
K1 Aquarius Teacher
My name is Elyce and I was born in Puerto Rico. When I finished junior high school, I moved to Los Angeles, California. I have been living in Tokyo for 12 years and came to Japan to attend university. I studied fine art and graphic design. After graduating, I stayed in Japan and began a career in teaching. I have been a preschool teacher for 7 years, teaching in international schools and using my art background to develop art curriculums. When I am not teaching, I love visiting art galleries with my family and learning new languages. It is great to be able to teach and meet so many wonderful children at PAP!

PAP上北沢校 Head Teacher
Hi, my name is Daniel and I am the Head Tea cher at PAP. I am originally from Auckland, New Zealand, but I have been living in Japan since 2006. I like movies, television, and all kinds of music.
Since moving to Japan, I have taught students of all ages. I became interested in teaching preschools after my daughter entered kindergarten. Since then I have been a full time, dedicated preschool teacher and enjoyed some of the best years of my career. I have taught many wonderful students over the past few years and look forward to making even more friends at PAP
I’m Oliver. I am from Miami, Florida in the United States but my family is originally from Cuba and Nicaragua. I grew up speaking both English and Spanish but did all my studies in English. I earned a degree in Art and Art History.
Growing up in Miami meant a lot of time at the beach and swimming pools during our endless summers. My father used to work for a large international Japanese company and would often take trips to Tokyo. It was my first real introduction to Japanese culture.
I have spent some time living Gunma and now I do a lot of hiking, reading about Japanese culture and history and watching movies.
I have been teaching for 11 years at public schools in America and private schools in Japan. I have a lot of fun working with children and bringing my won experiences learning English at a young age to my teaching style. I believe that fun and play are the best ways to learn, so let’s do our best and have a great time at PAP!
