"I have been teaching English as a second language for over 20 years and so I understand the difficulties experienced by people learning another language. My experience of travel and living abroad helps me to focus on communication skills. I use a holistic approach to language teaching and like to change learning activities often. I have a great deal of experience in many contexts and have worked for a number of top universities and other institutions as an examiner, marker, teacher, teacher trainer and assistant director of studies. "

"I have black belts in both Karate (shodan)and Budo Taijutsu (godan). I take a practical approach to teaching Budo Taijutsu. I believe that transmission of fundamental concepts is essential to training. There must be a sense of reality in what we do. Otherwise we can easily find we're studying something different from what we intended." CMJ currently teaches small adult groups.
