I'm from the east coast of England.
I first visited Japan about 12 years ago and had always wanted to come back one day, so when the opportunity arose to work for Shane, I jumped at the chance.
Everyday there is so much variety, but you still have the opportunity to build great relationships with your students and the people you work with.
The fact that I can work in the same school every day allows me to get to know most of the students who study here very well. This offers a great deal of stability for students and I am in a great position to give advice to colleagues about student's specific needs.

I am from Essex, in the South East of England.
Japan seemed like a most beautiful and mysterious country… and the food is delicious!
I've been teaching since before I graduated university, and I have no intention to stop; I'm lucky to meet such a variety of people, and help them achieve their goals.
Working at a school, you quickly realise that learning never stops! But we try our best to make each day count.

I’m from Cambridgeshire in the UK, about 1 hour north of London.
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.
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.
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.
I want my school to be a place where students feel comfortable and enjoy themselves but can also learn and achieve their goals.
