I am from the UK and completed my Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages in Newcastle University, and later earned my PGCE in Modern Languages teaching qualifications in Cheltenham and Nottingham. I worked in international schools in Russia and the UK before moving to China.
I came to China in 2014 and have taught IGCSE English, IBDP English B and English A Language and Literature. I came to BSB in 2020 because I was impressed by its culture of “Be Ambitious”. I enjoy challenging students with high-level, idiomatic and colloquial language.
I am here in China with my wife Charlotte - from Harbin – and my little daughter Annie. In my free time I am guitar mad. I play in a rock band, and I love building and customising guitars. My other passion is language. I speak Russian and French, and I hope to one day become a fluent Chinese speaker!
