Having originally studied at Nottingham University for a BA in Music, I switched subject and studied for a MA in Theology from the London School of Theology. I then completed a research masters and in 2017 was awarded a PhD. In years I haven't studied full time I worked for a Secondary School and in the charity sector. I now work for a church in Stourbridge and lecture at the Queens Foundation. My own cacdemic interests are principally in theology, philosophy and politics, but also the arts, culture and social work. I am married, have three young children, and am a keen football fan (Manchester United).
Religious Studies at Secondary School; several undergraduate modules at the University of Nottingham and, more recently, I have taught New Testament at the Queens Foundation. I have also worked as a freelance tutor at various points over the last decade for students studying Music, English, History, Philosophy and Ethics, at a range of levels.
I have worked with extremely bright students but also have a lot of experience of working with students with special educational needs.
Education is about more than being able to pass exams, although this is obviously important! I have worked hard for my qualifications and belive in disciplined, productive study; however for some students getting the highest possible grade is not necessarily the most important thing. Each person is an individual with different strengths and weaknesses, so I try to structure how I teach around individual needs and goals. When teaching I also believe that giving people self confidence, an ability to think critically and an enjoyment of the subject is an important part of helping them to improve
