I have been living and working (teaching) in Tokyo Japan for over ten years. I teach mostly Japanese children in a private English school. I teach various age children ranging from Moms and babies to 4th and 5th graders. Our school has various classes based on the American education system. I never started out my working life as a teacher however, I originally trained as a graphic designer and worked at a print shop for many years. after backpacking around the world I got married and moved to Japan. Acquiring an online teaching certificate I started my teaching career and have never looked back!
Hmm.... well I guess I use humor a lot and I like to give the kids in my classes a sense of ownership of the class, I do this by giving them choices of what and how we will do things and I also have them help out with classroom jobs during the class. It'll probably be obvious because of the nature of what I will upload to TPT but I like to use a lot of language based games for teaching, this really helps me during my class 'warm up' time.
None, that I know of!

I am happily married and living in Tokyo Japan with my wife and 8yr old daughter. I have been here more than 10 years now and I have become quite at home here. I love the outdoors and like to go on camping trips. I never intended to become a teacher and got into this job almost by default, but now I'm here I don't think I would want to change a thing!
