I'm now 60 and I still enjoy teaching. I love to help students overcome their fears by becoming more skilled and competent. I get alongside the student and work out how to help them learn. I am good at explaining things so that they are memorable. I have extra teaching qualifications.

I teach all junior school subjects. I teach English to 'A' level and I have helped with University students' assignments.

I teach whenever I am needed. I have done preschool lessons (7:30-8:30) and worked until 10pm (with adult drama students). I usually take my holidays during term times so I can fit round my students when they are on holiday. During the weekends I am able to work all day.
