Personal Description:

I am currently a Senior Examiner for Edexcel in Geography and also an examiner for General Studies, Citizenship and the EPQ. I am a senior manager and Head of Department at a Sixth Form College in London.
I previously worked as a professional travel and commercial photographer and still undertake freelance work.
My second passion is wine. I am a specialist in South American and Portuguese wines and offer guest tastings and tutorials in and around London. Next year I intend to take my WSET advanced diploma in wines and spirits. **Removed By Admin**

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching GCSE / A-Level standard for over 20 years and previously taught English abroad. I have over 15 years experience of private tuition and have worked for the same period of time as an examiner for Edexcel and AQA.
I am a former professional photographer who has taught GCSE, A-level and BTEC photography for over 20 years. I have knowledge of both 'traditional' analogue photography and also still digital photography capture, manipulation and post-production. I am very experienced in all technical and aesthetic aspects of photography, and have extensive knowledge of studio techniques, and 35mm and medium format equipment.

Teaching Approach:

I believe in a student-centred approach, which can be tailored by arrangement. I like to develop a mixture of skills, concepts and knowledge. By building conceptual skills and subject-based knowledge and case studies, a student is better prepared for the pressure of the examination. But, good subject and syllabus-focus is essential. My lessons can concentrate on exam practice (using a large bank of resources), case study revision, they can be skills-based (e.g. decision-making, data response) or focus on theory and concepts or a combination of all these. Teaching and learning programmes can be organised to suit personal needs. Some students want intensive 'power lessons', others just want extra exam question practice.
