About Me

During my teaching career I have worked at schools in Scotland, Slovakia, Egypt, Chile, Vietnam and South Korea, teaching and leading a diverse range of subjects such as English Lang & Lit, Philosophy/ToK, Business, and others. I have extensive experience teaching various curriculums - (i)GCSE, AS & A-Level, IB MYP/DP programs, and the Advanced Placement - and I know well the pitfalls and expectations of these courses and their assessments.

I currently hold full registration with the General Teaching Council of Scotland, and am qualified with a BA, PGDE and CELTA. Now I work online with students who wish to overcome their academic challenges and achieve their highest goals.
