Mathematics teacher

I’m a passionate mathematician and find the challenges of being an educator hugely rewarding.

 I’m a mathematics teacher with 15 years teaching experience in the UK and international schools. I started teaching at BISW in the Summer of 2018, after four successful years at another member of the Nord Anglia family –NAS Dubai in the UAE. This followed a decade in a London state school where I held various roles of academic and pastoral responsibility before finally succumbing to the travel bug!

My life isn’t entirely about maths and teaching - my wife, daughter and I enjoy expat life and are taking the opportunity to experience life in the US and all it has to offer. We enjoy traveling to new places, taking in history and culture, taking walks and making the most of family time. I also love playing and watching sport. Washington does fit the bill in all of these regards!
