I have over ten years of experience teaching Computing, Computer Science and Information Technology in high schools in my native South Africa. I was also the foundation teacher at two different schools, meaning that I started the department in those schools. I have also been a driver of digital transformation in schools, being the first to be a Google Certified Educator and assisting the staff in gaining their certifications.
As well as teaching in schools, I have consulted for Pearson Education, creating a training manual for them and running a course as a Master Trainer in a Train-The-Trainer workshop. I have also worked in industry as a Systems Engineer.
The most exciting thing about computers is the way they allow you to combine logical thinking with creativity to solve problems. This is particularly true when creating computer games, which I enjoy as a hobby.
These days coding is the new literacy, and everyone deserves to be fluent. Not everyone understands everything quickly or even on the first try but I have helped many students to understand, practise and improve their results, and I will help you too.
My wife and I recently came to live in the UK where she has a position with the NHS. When I am not helping students or creating computer games, I enjoy cycling and spending time with the family.
