I am a secondary specialist Computer Science teacher with 13 years experience. I graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 1998 with a BSc in Management & Publishing. I then worked in the IT industry for five years in London, initially for a central London fine art auctioneers and latterly in the IT European Projects team at a well-known recruitment company.
My first teaching role, following graduation from teacher training, was in Dorset on the South coast of England. Since then, my family and I have lived in the USA, Ascension Island, Stockholm, Sweden and currently in Bucharest, Romania. Aside from a brief foray into commercial flight training in 2007, I have taught for 13 years since qualifying. I’ve worked in various British School settings from a high-performance comprehensive to a high-achieving independent boarding school, as well as at three International schools.
As a member and previous hub leader of the Computing at School group, I have established the new Computer Science curriculum at three schools and have been engaged as a computing consultant for the Nord Anglia school Budapest. Currently, Computer Science and ICT to 11 – 18 year olds at an international school in Bucharest, Romania.
My diverse experience has helped me to become a versatile and dynamic educator, able to bring out the best in my students. I firmly believe in the opportunities that blended learning and homeschooling offers to students around the world, in allowing children from all backgrounds to receive a high-quality education.
I am delighted to be engaged as a Tutor at Wolsey Hall Oxford and am very much looking forward to working with students and staff.
