Personal Description:

I was educated in Dublin and Belfast and have a degree in English and Certificate in Education from Cambridge University. SInce I retired from teaching I have been an examiner for both Irish Schools Commission and Oxford and Cambridge Board in England. I have Garda clearance certificate. My wife and I are enjoying restoring an old farm house but I also enjoy keeping my brain active with tutoring and passing on what I have learned of subject and process over the years.

Tutoring Experience:

Head of English and Housemaster at St. Columba's, Dublin.
Head of English and Housemaster at Eastbourne College, Sussex
(in retirement) acting Head of English at Epsom College, Surrey

Approach to Grinds:

I hate the word Grinds with its suggestion of mindless, repetitive toil. Throughout my teaching career I have tried to combine enjoyment with intellectual rigour whether in the class situation or one-to-one. I like to assess the student's present position, set realistic goals and try to achieve them by a varied, energetic approach focussed on the goal but without excessive seriousness.
