Why did you come to Japan?

I wanted to experience living in another country and Japan seemed like an interesting place which had some similarities to my home country but was also very different.

Why do you like teaching?

I get to meet lots of different people with lots of different reasons for wanting to study and different goals. Every day is different. Teaching and learning is also fun so I enjoy helping and having fun with my students.

What’s great about being a Senior Teacher?

Seeing a student make real progress and achieve their goals gives me a great feeling. It’s nice knowing that I’ve helped people do something which they couldn’t have done on their own.

What’s your personal target for your school?

Where are you from?

I’m from Melbourne in Australia, but I grew up in Germany. This made me aware from an early age of the necessity of learning a second language in order to communicate with the people around me.

Why did you come to Japan?

I came to Japan to learn Japanese, soak up the fascinating diversity of culture, and try a little sake on the side.

Why do you like teaching?

It is a challenge and a privilege to be in a position to help people move closer to their goals of being able to communicate fluently in English.

What’s great about being a Teacher?

You get to know your students personally and adjust your own style of teaching to help them open doors to opportunities that weren’t there before they started learning English.

What’s your personal target for your school?

To create a comfortable and studious atmosphere that promotes a drive for self-improvement and interaction with others who share the common goal of using English in their daily life somewhere down the track.
