In 2006 and 2007, I worked as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language for a large corporation which managed schools all over Japan. I was assigned to a school in Gifu City, Gifu Prefecture, which is about half way between Osaka and Tokyo.

After my first year of teaching, and thanks to a strong reputation for engaging lessons and encouraging students to succeed, I was promoted to the role of trainer for the other teachers at our branch. My duties included evaluating teacher performance, monitoring student progress and scheduling lessons.

This was an extremely valuable experience for me in terms of learning to develop a positive working relationship with students, developing techniques for overcoming cultural and social differences, and thinking about the complexities of both the English and Japanese languages.
