About Me

I am a computer science enthusiast with an interest in geology. Before becoming a teacher I did geological research, then worked in the Australian mining industry before returning home to work as a consultant in a company specialising in geological software for the oil industry. However, after fifteen years as a practising geologist I decided to become a teacher, specialising in computer science. I'd already learned programming and completed several final year OU degree modules, so the transition was straight forward. In 2022, I joined the exodus out of schools and went part time as a college lecturer, teaching A level computer science.

Tutor Experience

Twenty years as a teacher of KS3, 4 and 5. Fifteen years as a head of department at a large Cheshire school. Since 2022, I have been a lecturer in computer science at a sixth form college in North Wales. Since going part time, I have tutored GCSE and A level computing online

Topic Expertise

I specialise in getting students through the exam and ensuring coursework at A level is the best it can be. I teach Python as the language for computing courswork and to teach the principles of computer science.
