Educated originally in Belfast, I pursued my further education in Britain: I took my Primary degree in Latin from the University of St Andrews (MA Hons); my teaching qualification (PGCE) from the University of Cambridge; and I returned home to take my PhD from QUB.
I have been a full-time teacher of Latin and Classical Civilisation since 1990. I am presently employed in a leading Belfast Grammar School. I have been an Examiner (marker) for AQA Classical Civilisation since 2004 and OCR Latin since 2011.
Professional and sympathetic approach to those with difficulties and to those wishing to maximise potential (e.g. Oxbridge entrance candidates). Personal contact fully backed up with all materials available in electronic format.
