Michael J. L.
hope to use my skills in a stable, yet growing, environment. I wish
to take what I have learned and add to it while at the same time, learning
from those around me. I believe one can always learn a new skill no
matter where one works. I hope to help whichever team or group I join
move to a higher level. I put a very large emphasis on loyalty and will
continue to be loyal to those I join.
Skills and abilities
have an excellent attendance record and am proud to say that in years
of working in Japan, I only missed days of work. I have worked on
teams that have achieved their goals successfully and as a solo where
required. I am able to lead others and I can run a unit when necessary.
I have gained management skills as well. I am also able to learn new
systems and abilities quickly and can adapt to any environment and/or
position where necessary. I have good oral and written communication
skills and will stay with the task at hand until finished. I am a selfstarter
and like to be part of a team. I can get things done well.
I have a Radio Operators license, have had a forklift license, and can
speak intermediate Japanese. Also while in Japan, I achieved Shodan
status Black Belt in Aikido. My years in Japan also gave me new
insights into how to achieve goals set by, or for me.

teacher in schools in or around the Tokyo area. I also did occasional
work in the entertainment field.
majority of my work in Japan required the teaching of English as a Second
Language to Japanese citizens of all ages. The primary focus was on
children. Everything from flash cards and games children to text books
adults was used. Also used was drama. All styles, including
conversation, grammar, vocabulary, and business. I gained much experience
in the teaching industry here, including how to adapt to different types
of methods, working as a team, and multitasking.
have an incredible amount of experience in caring for children ages
. Not just in the classroom, but in their basic needs as well.
Several places required me to serve not only as a teacher but also as
a caregiver when the parents were working. Many of these schools were
run like a Daycare with immersion into the English language. As a result,
many Japanese children were able to speak English by their fifth birthday.
