Personal Description:

I am an experienced chess player with a wide knowledge of the game. Outside chess, my work has often involved teaching and training in one form or another. My qualifications include an upper second BSc.(Hons.) in Psychology and a MSc. in Cognitive Science, as well as a PGCE. Since 2012 I have been teaching chess in schools for Chess in Schools and Communities (CSC), the UK's leading educational chess charity.

I agree with Botvinnik’s judgement that chess is the art of logic and that, as such, it can play a valuable role in developing children’s thinking skills, as well as being an interest that will enrich their lives well into the future. For adults, chess is a fascinating and rewarding hobby.

Currently I also teach functional English and mathematics to adults. Outside of chess and teaching, I have a wide interest in the arts, with a particular, long-standing one being Oulipian literature.

Teaching Experience:

I have over twenty years' teaching experience. As well as chess, I also teach English, mathematics and ICT to adults.

Teaching Approach:

My approach is tailored to the individual. I aim to make learning enjoyable and entertaining as well while being at the same time methodical and effective. On a practical note, I can either travel to the learner or teach in a central Manchester location.
