Martyn practised as solicitor specialising in commercial and property law for a number of years before following his long held ambition to teach. He successfully retrained and completed his Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Southampton. Since entering the profession, Martyn has been fortunate enough to teach in a selection of good and outstanding schools on the South Coast of the UK.
As a strong believer in inclusion, Martyn takes a caring and nurturing approach to the classroom. He believes that strong professional relationships with the children, built on trust and respect, enables them to enjoy school life and to make rapid progress in their learning.
A natural and determined problem solver, Martyn is happiest being challenged, both personally and professionally. This desire for challenge led Martyn and his family to Shanghai. It is proving to be a life changing opportunity and he takes great pleasure in exploring all that Shanghai has to offer with his wife and two young children.
Martyn is a lifelong fan of Blackburn Rovers and enjoys playing football and tennis. He spent the summer travelling along Route 66 with his family and is starting to make the most of the travel opportunities in Asia.
