I qualified as a teacher in 1985 and have all but 2 years, when I taught Religious Education at Secondary level, in post -16 education. I have taught A Levels full time since 2001 and have been Course Manager of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at Richard Huish College in Taunton, Somerset since 2007.
I have wide-ranging experience of further education. I have taught Government & Politics, European Studies and General Studies, examining the former subject though my main expertise is in Religious Studies and Philosophy. I worked as an examiner for AQA between 1999 and 2016, working mainly on A Level Religious Studies. I have also been employed by AQA to train A Level teachers.
I have just finished tutoring a young woman who achieved a B grade A Level in Religious Studies on 2 hours a week tuition from a standing start. I love my subject, I love teaching, am popular with students and colleagues alike. I have a sense of perspective and a sense of humour. I would like to work in the evenings as I found the experience of tutoring that I have had was one of the most enjoyable parts of my career & I would like to do more.
