It is an imperative to be able to listen and communicate effectively. Throughout my journey in the education sector, I have become an expert in both.
After graduating in Music Technology and Music Production with Distinction and a Certificate of Education at South Downs College and Portsmouth University, I have also spent several years within the live sound and studio engineering arenas, with many television and audio credits to my name. I am now studying for the QTLS Professional Formation and am a Member of the Institute for Learning.
I have worked in the education sector for over ten years now, predominantly in the Computer Science and Information Technology arenas in both adult and secondary sectors. In that time, I have used and integrated technology into the classroom whilst using my more traditional teaching skills to prepare & deliver lessons to a range of classes of different ages and abilities.
I am keen and skilled at researching new topic areas and devising and writing new curriculum materials and preparing pupils for qualifications & external examinations. Managing pupil behaviour in the classroom environment has also played an exceptional part of my career and has enabled me to to hone my communication and interpersonal skills.
I am also a seasoned web designer and have a wide and varied portfolio, with recent clients being The Royal Navy (December 2017).
