Kevin has been my teacher on two occasions during my undergraduate Global program at Nagoya University of Commerce and Business. His teaching methods make him a strong advantage to have from the perspective of an Educational Institution. Very open-minded and curious about every point related to every culture, Kevin knows perfectly how to teach thoroughly on topics such as Marketing, Intercultural communications, and especially on Japanese Culture. He perfectly uses his personal knowledge and assets, being a "foreigner" teaching on foreign territory, to convey them to all his students. It has been a true pleasure attending his classes and I won't hesitate to recommend him to any students thriving for knowledge, either to Japanese or International students

As a student, I had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Watson during my exchange semester at Nagoya University of Commerce and Business in Nagoya, Japan. After over fifteen years in various education institutions (Sweden, Japan and UK) it is no exaggeration to say that Mr. Watson is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Kevin Watson is passionate, knowledgeable and really knows how to create a positive atmosphere for learning. However, what really makes Mr. Watson unique is his ability to take initiative and go the extra mile for students, creating events, organising trips field trips and being very creative in his teaching. Mr. Watson even helped me with a thesis, written for another institution, during his spare time. I believe the fact that Mr. Watson gave up his spare time to help a former student clearly demonstrates what kind of teacher he is, always putting the student first. Any institution would be lucky to have Mr. Watson on board

Kevin is a very passionate and knowledgeable tutor. I thoroughly enjoyed Kevin's classes as his enthusiasm created a positive atmosphere for learning and collaboration. I have recommended his classes to several of my fellow students as what I learnt from Kevin highly enriched my experience in Japan.
