I was born in Zimbabwe and lived there until I was twelve years old, when I moved to the U.K. I lived in a city called Brighton.
After graduating I came to Japan on holiday and fell in love with the country, one day walking through a town called Funabashi I saw a sign for an English school with my name, I guess it was fate.
I love helping people to realize their potential. I find teaching children in particular very rewarding. It’s great seeing how they progress over the years, from barely being able to speak any English, to being able to make full sentences and have a conversation.

I'm from the south-west of England.
My grandfather was a JudoSensei, and my whole family trained in Judo. As a result, since a young age I have always been fascinated with Japan's history and culture and it was my life dream to experience Japan first-hand.
I absolutely love meeting new people and learning different points of view about a variety of topics. Every day presents new challenges and experiences, and I get real satisfaction from being a positive influence in people's lives and helping them to achieve their dreams.
I want my school to be the most welcoming and successful school in all of Shane! I also want to give students the confidence and ability to pursue their goals, whatever they may be!
Coming to Japan was the best decision I ever made, and I hope that I can continue to be a part of this wonderful country for many years to come.

I have friends who have worked here and speak the language and they always seemed to love it here. Hearing from them made me become more and more interested in Japanese culture. I also love Japanese music and art.
I think education is one of the ultimate things to chase after. I like being part of a student’s self-improvement.
I would like to think that students will be excited to come to my school and feel at home. I would also like the teachers in my school to want their other schools to feel more like mine.
