Personal Description:

I am 53 years old and graduated in 1987 with an honours degree in Mechanical Engineering. I worked for 25 years as a professional engineer in the motor industry for companies like Lotus Engineering, Borg Warner and Visteon. Covering such diverse areas as Formula 1 engine development to development of automated manual transmission. I also jointly hold several patents for technologies I was closely involved in inventing. Whilst in industry I organised and ran many projects with local schools to encourage children to enter engineering as a profession. I am also a parent and have served on various governing bodies, and in many different roles, such as subject link governor for maths, science and design technology. Twelve years ago I changed industries, and became Head of Exhibit Production for the Techniquest Science centre in Cardiff. With my team we designed and build interactive science exhibits for science centres all over the world. Following my redundancy, I took up a lecturing post specialising in engineering and mathematics.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently studying to become a qualified as a teacher. HoweverI have had a great deal of experience in leading and coaching pupils, often in area which are complimentary to their school studies. I have also tutored a variety of pupils in maths and science, at different ability levels.

Tutoring Approach:

My primary objective is to give my pupils a feeling of confidence and enjoyment for the subject. People learn better in an environment of encouragement and achievement. I also try to bring the subject alive by using real examples from my own wealth of personnel experience in industry and in the real world, I think pupils learn best when they can see how what they are learning has a real and practical application.
