Alex Conley

Alex Conley

Alex Conley is from California, USA and has been teaching English and consulting for kindergartens and language schools in Japan since May 2011. He is the co-founder of Jolly Study Square and teaches English at I's English School in Tokyo, Japan. He has been using Jolly Phonics and Grammar on a daily basis for the last eight years because the fun and multi-sensory approach is the most efficient and effective way of teaching students to read, write and spell. He hopes to share his experiences and knowledge with students, parents and other teachers throughout Japan.

Atsuko Maruyama


Atsuko Maruyama has been teaching English in Japan since founding her English school, I’s English School, in Tokyo in 2007. She teaches English to students 2 years old and up, and uses Jolly Phonics, Jolly Grammar and Jolly Music on a daily basis in her lessons with excellent results. Atsuko also teaches English to children with dyslexia and other developmental and learning difficulties, and has found that the synthetic phonic approach that Jolly Phonics is based on is exactly the type of support her students need. Additionally, she co-founded Jolly Study Square, an official distributor of Jolly Learning materials, in 2015 and has experience trying all the materials in the Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar lines. Through her many years of teaching experience, she can show you how to bring Jolly Phonics to life with children of all ages and abilities.
