University Degree: BA (Hons) Modern Languages, PGCE, Trinity TESOL English
I am from the UK. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Newcastle, and later earned my 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 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!
