Formerly an economist in the financial sector and a BBC World Service current affairs specialist I love to make complex issues accessible, to relate lessons to the real world and to equip students with the techniques for exam success.
I have 15 years experience in the classroom teaching secondary students from a wide variety of different backgrounds and nationalities. I have also published two books of lesson materials to help engage students interest and make study more fun.
