Teaching is in my blood. My father was a schoolmaster, so I’ve always been in touch with the educational world. After twenty years in secondary schools - state and independent; selective and all ability - I left to become a private tutor. Although I enjoyed the classroom banter and the camaraderie of the common room, I have found new joy in coaching individuals. Indeed, students invariably respond when they have the tutor’s undivided attention and it is a delight to see those who have struggled grow in confidence and understanding.
