About Graham


To encourage the formation of a Communication and Lifestyle Community, Graham’s House was established on the 24th of October 2014 by Graham Macdonald, an Australian who came to Japan on a Working Holiday Visa in July 2001 to study Traditional Japanese Martial Arts under the renowned Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi.

Graham would like his ‘House’ to become a space where like minded people can come together and communicate with one another and share their passion for English and a Healthy Lifestyle.

Graham is Cambridge CELTA (Pass A – La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia) qualified and has been teaching English to all ages, levels, professions and nationalities in Japan in language schools, companies, the health system, the school system, universities, nursery schools and his own company for the past twenty one years after graduating from Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, with a Bachelor of Arts, double majoring in Politics and History. He graduated from Toho University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan, in March 2013 with a Master of Science (Medicine) after being a Part Time Research Assistant at Toho University School of Medicine from April 2010 to March 2011.

In January 2020 Graham became a Certified Movement and Mobility Specialist (The Ready State/Mobility WOD – Movement & Mobility 101) and in August 2016 he completed the Yoga Ed. Professional Institute 1 – Kids Yoga Instructor Training.

Alongside teaching Private and Group English lessons in person and online, Graham currently lectures 2nd and 3rd year physiotherapy students in English and Study Skills at Tokyo University of Technology and teaches English and Kids Yoga to 3-6 year old children at a large nursery school in Tokyo.

Graham also specialises in Presentation Skills Coaching and Proof Reading, Editing and Translating of medical research papers for publication in scientific journals worldwide.

Graham’s last corporate training role was English Coach to the CEO, and other senior managerial staff, of an investment corporation in Tokyo. Prior to that he was in an in-house position at a global automotive manufacturer in Yokohama from June 2012 to October 2014 where he implemented, developed and managed an English training programme for the entire company.

Grahamは2001年7月日本の古武道を習うためにオーストラリアから日本にやって来ました。この度はGraham’s Houseを設立いたしました。当Houseでは私が興味をもって取り組んできた英語とヘルシーライフスタイルについてみなさんと共有していきたいと考えています。どうぞ宜しくお願い致します。
