My name is Mark and I am from Carlisle, England. At first I was History teacher in secondary schools in England for four years. Then, as well as traveling around the world, I also taught in schools in Melbourne, Australia, and coached soccer to children in New York, USA.
I have been teaching in Japan for 11 years. At first I worked in a language school, but for most of my time in Japan I have been working in international schools. I was the Principal of a small international kindergarten and elementary school, in Nagoya, Japan. Most recently I have been teaching in Kuwait, as the Head of the History department in a large, British international school in Kuwait.
I have been in Japan over 11 years, and as well as teaching children in schools and a returnee program, I have also taught adults in language schools, community groups (for example at Culture Centres) and have visited companies to teach business English classes.
In total I have 17 years of teaching experience, including around 10 years of English teaching in Japan. I hope that I will have the opportunity to use my knowledge and experiences to great effect in the (Skype) classroom. I look forward to seeing you in the near future.
