    primary teacher helping year 3 students in maths class

James Farquhar

Having worked for over twenty years in the technical side of show business and the world of theatre, I decided to return to formal education and, after a prolonged struggle, I attained a First Class Honours Degree in German, French and Education at the University of Stirling in Scotland.

I am now in my fifteenth continuous year of teaching German Language and I have previously worked at two outstanding international schools; those being the International School of Düsseldorf in Germany and the British International School of Chicago, South Loop in the United States. I also have significant experience of teaching IB German at both Higher and Standard Level and I recently received the highest IB results in the school for my language students.

Overall, I enjoy the process of guiding students to be global citizens and responsible young adults who develop a genuine love of learning. I also firmly believe that teaching should not only be about the imparting of knowledge, but should also be about the building of a child’s character and their pursuit of extra-curricular enrichment.

Joining NAS Dubai offers me the opportunity of sampling a new culture and the chance to live on another continent and I can’t wait to get started! When you get to know me, you will find that I am sporty person, (who loves football, tennis and squash) and I was previously a professional referee for the Scottish Football Association and have officiated at over 600 matches. Consequently, I will enjoy passing on the Laws of the Game to anyone who will listen!
