After working for several years at Waseda University in Japan, he moved to James Cook University’s Singapore campus.

Mike is the English language specialist for JCU Singapore’s Learning Centre. He runs a variety of programs designed to meet students’ specific educational needs, and therefore is constantly in the process of adapting the material to achieve this. He enjoys meeting the challenge of figuring out what more students need and trying to help them elevate their learning.
