Mr Kearns has taught English for over long years now and has thoroughly enjoyed working at a diverse range of schools. Previously, he worked at a multicultural institution with many students having English as a second language and greatly valued the experience it gave him, working in a challenging teaching environment. Before teaching, however, Mr Kearns embarked on a career in law, working at various firms, but ultimately changing his career direction when he realised his love of language could be best utilised in education.
