Hello Fellow Smith Franchisees!
As my first post to the soap box, I just want to say how excited I am to be part of the Smith team. I’ve been teaching here and there in Japan over the last 7 years and have always had my eye on having my own school. Thanks to my partner Paul Rutherford, this idea became a reality. Together, I hope we can make our school just as successful and student friendly as the other Smith schools I see out there today. I look forward to meeting many of you in the near future and welcome any advice or input you may have. From what I’ve seen so far on the Smith website, your school’s homepages, and the posts you’ve been contributing to the soap box, I am confident that my choice to join the S.S.E. Tsuruhashi School will provide me with a great experience and a wonderful opportunity while I continue my life here in Japan.

Welcome on board…look forward to your posts in the near future.
Congratulations Mike on achieving one of your personal goals – having your own school.
The period that you have already spent coaching within Smith’s School of English is a great foundation on which you and Paul will no doubt build a strong student base. In addition, as you have experienced, you have the dedicated TEAM Smith support so it looks like you guys will not only be having fun but you’ll also be creating a great lifestyle as you improve the English levels of your pupils and grow your income.
