I began my teaching career in Hawaii almost thirty years ago and my first classrooms were the beaches and coastline off Maui Island where I taught windsurfing, surfing and sailing. Since then, my teaching has been mostly in the fields of English as a Foreign Language (with an emphasis on Business English) and Teacher Training. In addition to my work as Director of Language Programs at the Hirao School of Management (CUBE), I teach content-focused English courses such as American Studies, European Studies, Japan Studies, Business Communication, Public Speaking and Debate. I definitely feel most at home in the classroom. The following links will take you to pages with descriptions of the  regular courses that I teach, as well as some of the project courses that I have overseen. Finally, here are some of the special course or workshops that I have taught/conducted outside of CUBE.
