James Webster-Gardiner

James Headshot



Hello, my name is James Webster-Gardiner. I’m from the UK and grew up in Surrey, just south of London, England. For the last 14 years I have lived and taught English in Japan (Gunma), the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, and the UAE. Travelling is one of my passions, and I really enjoy seeing new places and cultures, trying new foods and meeting people. So far, I’m lucky enough to have visited 43 countries in the world! I have a BA in English Literature, and a Masters degree in TESOL. I’m also interested in photography and sports – especially rugby and football/soccer. I’m very excited to be returning to Japan once again, to meet new people and learn all about you!
