I was a teacher in secondary schools in Australia for some years. I was in Broken Hill (outback Australia) and then Grafton (northern NSW).
I then moved to Japan where I taught mathematics (in English) for 4 years in an interesting program that prepared Japanese students for college courses in the USA. The students would spend one year improving their English, followed by one year doing a typical freshman program, then they would go to small mid-West colleges in the US. I also taught English while in Japan.
On returning to Australia, I taught in TAFE (Technical and Further Education), Bond University and Griffith University on the Gold Coast, south of Brisbane.
I then moved to Singapore where I taught engineering mathematics in a polytechnic. Subsequently, I did staff training in the same institution.
I'm now a freelance trainer and consultant, still based in Singapore.
