Why did you come to Japan?

Canada is very multicultural and I loved all of the Japanese influence there. The Japanese students in my school were so nice, so restaurants were so good, I wanted to spend some time living where all of these great influences originated.

Why do you like teaching?

I love meeting new people, especially people who are passionate and goal oriented. Every day I see my students giving it their all and this inspires me to do the same in turn.

What’s great about being a Senior Teacher?

It’s really nice to get to know the students as a collective. I can say hello to students’ parents when they drop off their kids at the school or students who pop in for a make-up lesson. It’s also great for the students as they can say hello to me on almost any day of the week.

Why did you come to Japan?

Prior to coming to Japan I was an English Teacher for around 6 years. I wanted to further my experience as teacher by working in a non-native English Speaking country outside Europe.

Why do you like teaching?

Like all jobs, teaching has its challenges. But the reward of seeing your students get closer to their goals, achieve targets you set together, and pass their exams is very satisfying.

What’s your personal target for your school?

I want to make our students (and potential students) feel confident that they have the ability to learn a second language and that we will be with them 100% of the way on this journey.

Why did you come to Japan?

I’ve always been fascinated by Japanese culture, history and tradition so, I wanted to learn by immersing myself in the country.

Japan was so different to what I was used to so I wanted to explore. Now, I can see many similarities between Japanese and Scottish cultures.

Why do you like teaching?

I love helping people understand how to communicate in another language. I have a lot of respect for the people who choose to learn English as it’s very difficult!

Being a teacher, I get to meet many kinds of people, so it’s a very interesting job.
Teaching is also the best way to learn more about your own language. I love learning something new every day.

What’s great about being a Senior Teacher?

As a Senior Teacher I can build better relationships with the students in my school. It also means I have the opportunity to help newer teachers, and little by little, together we can create a good atmosphere for our students and teachers.

What’s your personal target for your school?

I want to make our school more interactive. I don’t want the learning to stop outside of the classroom. I want to find fun ways to encourage students to use English in their free-time and hopefully, start displaying their work on a regular basis.
