Year 4 Teacher

BSc (Hons), QTS, CELTA

I studied at the University of Manchester in the UK and was awarded an Bachelor's degree with honours in Management. I am licensed to teach in both the UK and USA and have been teaching in China from 2011. I also have a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) from the University of Cambridge. When I arrived in Beijing, I taught English as a language initially and worked with a wide range of ages from three up to twelve years old. I then moved to teaching all subjects in a Primary classroom and was promoted to supervisor and then manager in charge of curriculum program development. In my last school I was year level leader for both Year 2 and Year 3. 

As a teacher, I believe in setting clear expectations and routines. Learning should develop skills as well as knowledge, promote problem solving and encourage students’ natural curiosity. One of the key reasons I was drawn to BSB Shunyi is the high standards of learning and teaching. I know that this is a school where I will be able to improve my teaching practice, develop my leadership skills and help students achieve their goals.

I have lived in China for the last ten years and speak the language fairly well. My wife and I were married here in 2019. In my spare time I like to read more about education, health and history. Apart from that, I tend to read a lot of novels at weekends and during holidays. I like to play football and go to the gym regularly.
